Chasing a daunting target of 459, Bangladesh were all out for 250 in 100.3 overs but put up a stiffer resistance than what the final outcome of the match would suggest.

The win was Indian team's 8th victory in 9 home Tests this season with the only draw coming against England at Rajkot. (Kohli breaks Azharuddin's record)

This was India's 6th successive series victory under Virat Kohli starting from Sri Lanka series in 2015. 

India's unbeaten streak in Test matches is now 19 with the last defeat coming against Sri Lanka in Galle in August, 2015.

For a team ranked world number 9 in ICC rankings, Bangladesh hung on for four days and two sessions - something that nobody had expected from the minnows. They played close to 230 overs, both innings included.
