India Test cricket captain Virat Kohli on Monday heaped praise on his bowlers for pulling off a massive 208-run win against Bangladesh on a flat wicket which had little for them on offer.

"Credit to our bowlers, they were able to get result on this kind of a track. Considering that the wicket was very good to bat on, it took a bit of patience for us to get wickets during Bangladesh first innings," Kohli, who has now led India to 19 Test wins, said at the post-match media interaction.

India captain Virat Kohli has credited the partnership between his spinners and pacers for being able to conjure up wickets on a track that did not have anything to offer on the fifth day of the one-off Test match in Hyderabad against Bangladesh.

India won by 208 runs at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium here to stretch their winning run in the home season that has seen them win six consecutive series since the first against Sri Lanka in 2015.

India's premier off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin on Sunday said he was happy with his form in the second outing because he was a bit rusty with the ball in the first innings of the one-off cricket Test against Bangladesh.

Ashwin has taken two wickets, giving away 34 runs in 16 overs so far in the Bangladesh second innings.

Bangladesh face a massive challenge in saving the one-off cricket Test as they reached 103-3 in their second innings after India set them a target of 459 on the penultimate day in Hyderabad on Sunday. Left with an unlikely 356 more to win on the final day, Bangladesh will need to survive 90 overs with just 7 wickets left as they play their first ever Test match in India.

Middle-order batsmen Mahmudullah (9*) and Shakib Al Hasan (21*) were at the crease when umpires dislodged the bails for the day which saw the visitors concede a 299-run lead after being bowled out for 288 in their first innings. India then scored rapidly and declared their second innings at 159 for four.

Seasoned all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan, whose belligerant half- century helped rescue Bangladesh from a precarious position in the one-off cricket Test against India here on Saturday, is unfazed with the criticism for his aggressive approach in the traditional format.

The 29-year-old Shakib, who fell short of his fifth Test ton by a mere 18 runs, forged a vital 107-run fifth wicket stand with skipper Mushfiqur Rahim (81 not out) to help the visitors crawl back into the match after being reduced to 109/4.
