India dominate, Kohli's record double ton

It was a special day for the Indian captain who scored his 4th Test double century in as many series to surpass Australian legend Sir Donald Bradman and India's Rahul Dravid.

After resuming on 41-1, the touring side suffered a major blow in just the third over of the day when Tamim Iqbal was run out on his overnight score of 24.

The dashing skipper and batsman Virat Kohli, as usually hogged the limelight even in Hyderabad test with his double century. Then the next three came against New Zealand, England, and of course, Bangladesh on Friday. He broke Chandu Borde's long-standing record of most first-class runs (1,604) in an Indian season. "Obviously, I got to learn a lot", teenage Bangladesh offspinner Mehedi Hasan Miraz said. That is the reason why he bowled a 17-over spell yesterday morning and grabbed three wickets in his 47 overs. For the 133 innings in which "balls faced" data was recorded, only two of them ended with better strike rate than Kohli's innings at Hyderbad: Victor Trumper's 214 off 247 balls at Adelaide in 1911, and Adam Voges' 269* off 285 deliveries at Hobart in 2015, and both the innings contained more boundaries than Kohli's. "We have scored almost 600 in New Zealand, so we need to believe".

Ajinkya Rahane(82 off 133 balls) and Ravindra Jadeja(60* off 78 balls) also did no harm to their averages.Rahane making his comeback showed his elegance once again and Jadeja played with aggresion as India neared declaration.

Ravichandran Ashwin (34) was caught at slip off Mehedi Hasan, and India marched on, crossing 600 in the 147th over.

India beats England to win T20I series
Rahul was bowled for 22 by Ben Stokes but replays later showed the umpire had missed the paceman overstepping the bowling crease. England lost eight wickets for just eight runs as they threw away the chance of winning a Twenty20 series in India this morning.

In the process of guiding India to a mammoth total in the first innings, Kohli shattered a few records to continue his run towards greatness. In Mumbai against England, India had lost the toss and England had raked up 400.

The second day saw India dominate the visitors as Bangladesh chased leather for most part of the three sessions.

The replays suggested that the ball was hitting the stumps but the impact of the ball on his pad was outside the off stump.

Wicketkeeper-batsman Saha scored his second Test century to entertain a raucous home crowd, including seven fours and two sixes, helping India maintain an impressive run rate of over four. As luck would have it, skipper Mushfiqur missed a regulation stumping of Saha when the batsman was on four. "Whenever one bats with Virat, he backs everybody, he always tells you to play your natural game". Their fielding was a awful sight to witness, they dropped catches, missed stumping chances, giving the home side an advantage over them.
