Kolkata, Nov 24: India continued their domination in home Tests with a thumping win over Bangladesh here on Sunday. In what was their first ever day-night Test, India beat Bangladesh by an innings and 46 runs to complete a 2-0 series whitewash.

India thus became the first team ever to record four consecutive innings victories, extending their winning streak at home to 12 Tests.

Additionally, this was skipper Virat Kohli's seventh successive win in Test cricket, which took him past Mahendra Singh Dhoni's record of six consecutive victories in the five-day format as captain.

India had won four Tests against Australia and two against the West Indies in 2013 under Dhoni. Under Kohli, their winning streak started with the first Test against the West Indies in Antigua and has continued into their home series against South Africa and Bangladesh.

India now sit pretty at the top of the table of the World Test Championship with 360 points from seven matches. Second placed Australia are on 116 points.
