India beats Bangladesh to lead the Test Series 1-0

India Vs Bangladesh
The first test match played between India and Bangladesh saw many ups and downs. The match was regularly affected due to bad light problem making it impossible to play a full over match every day. Apart from the bad light issue, the way Indians started this match was actually disappointing for a number one team in ICC test rankings. India were reduced to 150 for six in the first innings. It was Sachin Tendulkar who scored 105, his 44th Test Century, and brought back some life for India in this match. Later on Indian bowling supported Sachin's efforts as well.

Not to forget, Gautam Gambhir scored a century in the second innings which helped India build a big lead on Bangladesh. His record fifth Test ton in consecutive matches was the icing on the cake. 

On the fifth day morning, Indian bowlers bowled really well to give India a convincing victory in the end. A scintillating hundred by Mushfiqur Rahim on the final day was something to cheer about for Bangladesh.

Sachin Tendulkar was awarded the 'Man of the match' award for his fine ton in the first innings. India now leads the series 1-0 with one more match to go.
