As expected, India wrapped up a comfortable win over Bangladesh in the only Test between the two sides at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad on Monday.
The Indian bowlers produced a devastating display in the post-lunch session to help secure a comprehensive 208-run victory.
Bangladesh put up a better display than most people expected and that impressed India legend VVS Laxman, who insisted they must learn from the defeat in order to keep improving.
Former New Zealand cricketers Simon Doull and Scott Styris, and former India opener Aakash Chopra also commended the visitors’ performance.
Here, we look at the top tweets of the day.

Heading into the final day, India are in the driver’s seat in the Test against Bangladesh at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad.
The visitors have done well to stretch the match to the fifth day, but will need something extraordinary if they are to get anything out of the game.
India, on the other hand, will be looking to take the remaining wickets without much hassle.
Who do you think will come out on top?
India need seven wickets while Bangladesh need 356 runs for a win on the final day of the Test between India and Bangladesh in Hyderabad.
The highlights of day four included Mushfiqur Rahim’s century, Ravichandran Ashwin becoming the fastest bowler to get 250 Test wickets and Cheteshwar Pujara getting a quick-fire fifty.
On Twitter, former Indian cricketers Aakash Chopra and Mohammad Kaif congratulated Ashwin on his incredible achievement while commentator Harsha Bhogle felt that it will be difficult for Bangladesh to not lose the match from here.
There was a lot of praise for Mushfiqur as well for his ‘gritty’ century.
Here, we collect the top tweets of the day.

So few occasions where I think the follow on is a good idea. Basically only in rain shortened games or with bad weather due— Peter Miller (@TheCricketGeek) February 12, 2017
