There is absolutely no stopping Team India at the moment in Tests. The Virat Kohli-led side is growing from strength to strength with each passing game. The world number one Test is blowing away teams at such ease that it is tough even to think that they will lose any game. After dismantling West Indies and South Africa in the last three months, India have successful dismantled Bangladesh too.

They beat the visitors by an innings and 46 runs at the iconic Eden Gardens to sweep the two-match Test series. Living up to the expectations, India blew away Bangladesh inside three days. The tourists were all out for just 106 runs in the first innings as the home pacers spitted venom. Ishant Sharma led the way by taking five wickets while Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami picked up three and two wickets respectively.
