And that's lunch on Day 3, India has dominated the session as always with Shami striking big wickets. Bangladesh's only hope to extend the day would be their experienced campaigner Mushfiqur Rahim who also was their top run-scorer in the first innings.

It feels like India will wrap the game today itself and give two days holiday to the cricket commentators and live bloggers.

Thats Tea break for both the sides. Well the only session in the entire match where Bangladesh can claim it as their dominated session. As Mushfiqur Rahim posts his 21st Test half-century with Mehidy Hasan p[laying the second fiddle in the 56-run partnership between the two set batsman.

Bangladesh lost the only wicket of Liton Das who also was looking in good form.

India won the match by an innings and 130 runs. India will head to Eden Gardens for the historic day-night test match on November 22 with a 1-0 lead in the two-match series.

Tigers declawed

The writing was on the wall on the third morning itself and it was all about delaying the inevitable for Bangladesh as the Indian pace bowlers ran through their batting line-up once again as Virat Kohli and boys register an innings and 130-run win over the visitors in the first Test of the two-match series at the Holkar Stadium on Saturday.

While Mohammed Shami once again stole the show with figures of 4/31 (match-figures of 7/58), Umesh Yadav picked two in Bangladesh's second essay and Ishant Sharma added two to his name. It was only poetic justice for the Indian pace bowlers that the spin-bowling duo of R. Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja picked just five wickets in the game, all picked by the off-spinner.

For Bangladesh, the only bright spot was Mushfiqur Rahim's fighting knock of 64 as he delayed Bangladesh's slide to an innings defeat on the third day. But Ashwin sent him back, ninth wicket to fall, caught brilliantly by Cheteshwar Pujara.

While the third session once again saw the Bangladesh batting flounder, it was only the second session when Mushfiqur, Liton Das and Mehidy Hasan Miraz ensured that they showed application and gritted it out in what otherwise looked like a game that would finish on the third afternoon in the post-lunch session.

The game was completely dominated by the Indian pace bowlers as they first rattled out Bangladesh for 150 in the first innings and then picked four wickets in their second innings in the first session itself on Saturday.

With India declaring on their overnight score of 493/6, it was anyway a matter of playing catch-up for the visitors and Shami ensured that he once again showed his class in the second innings of a Test match as he picked two of the four wickets that fell in the first session. While Umesh sent back the experienced Imrul Kayes (6), Ishant had Shadman Islam's number for 6.

That was enough for Bangladesh to surrender as the middle-order failed to apply itself as Mushfiqur fought a lone battle.

The post-lunch session still seemed slightly better for Bangladesh as Mahmudullah was one of two wickets to fall in the session nicking to Rohit Sharma in the slip cordon off Shami. Rohit had earlier dropped a sitter and thus gave Mushfiqur a lifeline.

Liton Das stuck on with Mushfiqur and put up a 63-run stand for the sixth wicket. But his journey also came to a sudden end as he became the only man to fall to Ashwin in the second session, hitting it straight back to the bowler having made 35 off 39.

Mehidy however held fort with Mushfiqur as the latter crossed his half century and Bangladesh finished on 191/6 at Tea.

Brief Scores: Bangladesh 150 all out (Mushfiqur Rahim 43; Mohammmed Shami 3/27); 213 (Mushfiqur Rahim 64; Mohammed Shami 4/31, R Ashwin 3/42); India 493/6 (Mayank Agarwal 243, Cheteshwar Pujara 54; Ajinkya Rahane 86, Ravindra Jadeja 60; Abu Jayed 4/108)
