India win Test series against Bangladesh

India win by 10 wickets and win the test series 2-0

Zaheer Khan is the Man of the Match as well as the Man of the series, for picking up 15 wickets in the series, ending up as the highest wicket taker in the series.
Sachin Tendulkar collects a special memento for becoming the 1st cricketer to cross 13,000 runs in Tests.

Zaheer had previously taken 2 wickets in 2 balls twice in his career. The others to do it are Ravi Shastri, Kapil Dev and Anil Kumble. Only Harbhajan Singh and Irfan Pathan have a Test hat-trick to their name.

Things looked hunky dory for Bangladesh until Zaheer struck late on day 3 to remove Siddique and Iqbal in successive overs. Ashraful and Shahadat got through the first hour unscathed but once Shahadat fell, Bangladesh collapsed like a house on fire. The spinners chipped in with 3 wickets before Zaheer finished it all off. With his devastating spell with the old ball, he bowled a 3-wicket maiden before getting rid of the last man after lunch to finish with his first 10-wicket haul. For Bangladesh, its been a familiar story. They were in a position of strength but threw it all away as they failed to capitalise, losing 7 wickets for 22 runs this morning to hand India an easy win.
