So that is it from this game. India continue their dominance with a demolishing win over Bangladesh. Also, they continue their unbeaten run in the ICC World Test Championship. We are not done with the series however as we now move to Kolkata for the first ever Day-Night Test match to be played by India. Kohli and co. will look to convert their red ball dominance into pink ball as well. Bangladesh, on the other hand, will look to put on a better display and stun the home crowd by drawing the series. The historic pink ball Test will begin on Friday, 22nd November. The match will start at 1300 local (0730 GMT). Join us for that one. Till then, cheers!

For his brilliant innings of 243, Mayank Agarwal has been named the Man of the Match. Mayank smiles and says that he hopes that the smile continues for a longer period. Tells he practices but not much as they play the shorter formats as well. Agarwal feels proud to represent India. Says it is great to have someone who wants you to get more runs than himself as Kohli wanted him to get to a double ton when he reached 150 for the first time in Tests. On being asked whether he has had any practice with the pink ball, Mayank informs they had three sessions of practice with Rahul Dravid.

Indian skipper, Virat Kohli says that it has been a clinical performance. Says that they played with 5 batters and it was a very professional performance. On his pace bowling options, Kohli says they are at the top of their game and feels they bowl excellently on any surface. Says that Bumrah is not here at the moment and when he joins the team, it would be more lethal. On the records, Kohli feels that they have not focused on it and are just looking to get the team as high as possible and inspire the upcoming Indian players. Tells when a young guy comes into the team he knows how important it is to get big runs so he just looks to lay the marker so that the new batters can keep their guard and focus on getting the runs while they are in the zones. On playing pink ball cricket next, Kohli tells he is very excited and proud to be the part of the first Indian side to play a Day-Night Test.

Bangladesh skipper, Mominul Haque says that it was difficult as they won the toss and decided to bat first. On the positives, Mominul says that the bowling of Abu Jayed along with the performance of Rahim and Liton are the positives. He feels that it is a challenge for the top order to score some runs and release the pressure on the middle order batsmen. Further adds that he wants to enjoy the Day-Night Test in Kolkata.

No guesses for who the Man of the Match will be but stay tuned for the presentation as we hear from the captains.

Ishant Sharma jokes and says that the other players don't treat him as a senior. Further adds that there is no difference between a senior and a junior as they try to make each other comfortable. Adds that they all enjoy each other's success. Smiles and says that the body feels weak after a certain age but he is enjoying bowling at the moment. On playing with the pink ball in the next Test, he says that he is excited to play that game as the ball does a bit under the lights.

Umesh Yadav says that his parents have got him here as they made him run and practice hard in his childhood and that is what he tries to use here. Adds that if they keep taking wickets, they get to bowl more overs. Says that they like to contribute with the bat as well. Adds that in the last match against South Africa, skipper Kohli told him to go and hit the ball hard and play freely.

Mohammed Shami admits that they get tired but all the fast bowlers try to enjoy themselves as much as possible. Further adds that they also try to push each other for success. On Umesh's batting, Shami jokes that the boundaries are short in India for Umesh's power. On being asked about his secret to good bowling, Shami goes on to say that he has full freedom from the coach and the captain to bowl however he likes and says that he focuses on lines and lengths.

Harsha Bhogle is down for an interview with the impressive pace bowling trio of Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav and Ishant Sharma.

With a massive deficit, Bangladesh needed their openers to fight it out but the opening pair of Kayes and Shadman failed to do that and were unable to hang out there for long. Just like the first innings, the top order did not put up a fight and for a moment it looked like they would struggle to get into the second session with any mainstay batters. However, Mushfiqur Rahim hung around with Mahmudullah. The latter though could not fight for long. Liton and Rahim then counter-attacked the Indian bowlers. Mushfiqur put up a fight with Mehidy Hasan but the task in hand was too much and Rahim's fighting knock was not enough for Bangladesh to avoid an innings defeat.
