India on the verge of the historic victory in Eden Gardens

India probably might finish their first-ever Day and Night Test Today as Bangladesh has shown some resistance in the later part of the Day 3. Mahmadhullah has scored some quick runs to put the Indian bowlers under pressure negotiate the hosts’ victory and negotiate the things with his former skipper Mushfiqur Rahim before retired hurt. 

 
Mushfiqur Rahim slammed an unbeaten 59 as Bangladesh ended the second day of the Day-Night (pink-ball) Test in Kolkata's Eden Gardens at 152/6, trailing India by 89 runs in the second innings. 
 
India had declared their first innings at 347/9 driven by captain Virat Kohli's 136(194) before a surprising collapse from the Indian Middle order. Kohli took the same innings (141) as Sachin Tendulkar to score 27 Test hundreds. Team India captain Virat Kohli also equaled former Australia captain Ricky Ponting's world record for most international hundreds as captain after scoring his 41st on Saturday. 
 
Kohli slammed his 41st hundred in his 188th international innings as captain. Ponting slammed 41 hundreds in 376 international innings as captain. Kohli has now hit 70 hundreds in international cricket. The 31-year-old became the third batsman after Sachin Tendulkar and Ricky Ponting to slam 70 international hundreds. Kohli has now hit 27 tons in Tests and 43 in ODIs.
