Stats & Records from India’s Win Over B’desh in Test Series-Opener

Mohammed Shami and Ravi Ashwin led the way as India crushed Bangladesh by an innings and 130 runs on the third day of the first test on Saturday.

Bangladesh, which was dismissed for 150 in its first innings, was bowled out after tea for 213 in its second.

Mushfiqur Rahim top-scored with a gritty 64 before he fell to off-spinner Ashwin.

Paceman Shami took 4-31 while Ashwin picked up 3-42.

Below are some of the records created on the day:

  • India have won six successive Tests since August 2019 - two vs West Indies; three vs South Africa and one vs Bangladesh.  Only once previously, they had won six in a row - under MS Dhoni's captaincy - four vs Australia and two vs two vs West Indies in 2013.
  • India have won eight and drawn two out of ten Tests played against Bangladesh - winning % 80.00.
  • Under Virat Kohli, India have won ten Tests by an innings' margin - the most by an Indian captain, bettering the nine under MS Dhoni.
  • For the third time, India have won three successive Tests by an innings - in 1992-93; in 1993-94 and in 2019-20.
  • Since posting an unbeaten 219 vs Zimbabwe at Dhaka in November 2018, Mushfiqur Rahim has posted his first fifty during the last one year.
  • Mohammed Shami's bowling average (15.22), strike rate (34.0) and economy rate (2.68) while claiming 31 wickets in seven Tests this year are exceptionally good.
  • Shami's excellent bowling figures of 7 for 58 (3/27 + 4/31) are his second best in a Test match next only to the 9 for 118 vs West Indies at Kolkata in November 2013.
  • Mayank Agarwal got his first Man of the Match award in Tests.
  • Mayank (243) became the sixth Indian batsman to outscore the opposition (Bangladesh) (150 & 213) in each innings.
India bowled out Bangladesh for 213 to record an innings and 130-run victory in the first Test, on Saturday.
  • Liton Das (35) has posted his highest score in eight innings (four Tests) this year, bettering the 33 vs New Zealand at Wellington in March 2019.
  • Liton's last fifty in Tests remains the 54 off 62 balls vs West Indies at Dhaka in November/December 2018.  His only fifty in sixteen innings (eight Tests) away from home remains the 70 vs South Africa at Bloemfontein in October 2017.
  • Liton Das and Mushfiqur Rahim were involved in a stand of 63 - Bangladesh's second highest partnership for the sixth wicket against India behind the 64 between Manjural Islam Rana and Nafees Iqbal at Dhaka in December 2004.
  • Mehidy Hasan Miraz and Mushfiqur Rahim were associated in a stand of 59 - Bangladesh's fifth partnership of 50-plus against India for the seventh wicket.
