New Delhi | Jagran Sports Desk: Team India on Saturday registered a comfortable win against Bangladesh as they trounced the visitors by an inning and 130 runs in the opening test held at Holkar Stadium in Indore. The hosts have now led the series 1-0. Mayank Agarwal was the stand out performer of the match as he slammed his second double century in Test cricket while bowlers performed exceptionally well to reduce the visitors by for 150 and 210 runs in just three days.

This is the sixth consecutive win for India in the longest format of the game. After India had defeated Proteas in their last Test series, they created a world record of winning 11 consecutive series at home. Post win in Indore, the hosts now have a chance to extend their lead at the top by winning the first Day-Night match at Eden Gardens.

The last time India had lost a Test series at home was against England in 2012-13. The winning streak began against West Indies, which was also the last series of Sachin Tendulkar.

On the third day of Test match, India required just three sessions to bundle out visitors and register an emphatic victory. The day's play began with Virat Kohli's team declaring their total at an overnight score of 493/6. Mayank Agarwal scored 243 runs to take India to a commanding position, while Ajinkya Rahane, Cheteshwar Pujara and Ravindra Jadeja also scored fifties.

Mohammad Shami was the standout bowler for team India as he scalped seven wickets in two innings of the match. Ravichandran Ashwin and Umesh Yadav also picked five and four wickets respectively. For Bangladesh, Mushfiqur Rahim (64) waged a lone battle and took calculated risk in his innings but eventually ended up losing his wicket off Ashwin.
