Virat Kohli scored a century against the pink ball before India torpedoed Bangladesh’s top order with it as they at one stage hunted a two-day win in the day-night Test at Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

Kohli (136) struck his 27th Test ton – the same number as Graeme Smith and Allan Border – to lift India up to 347-9 declared and a lead of 241.

India, who rolled Bangladesh for 106 on day one, reduced the visitors to 13-4 in their second knock, only for Mushfiqur Rahim (59no) to post fifty stands with Mahmudullah (39) and Mehidy Hasan (15) as they reached 152-6.
