Gambhir hits five consecutive tons in tests
Gautam Gambhir, who scored 116 in India’s second innings in the first test against Bangladesh, became the fourth batsman to score a century in five successive Tests. Australian Don Bradman holds the world record of making hundreds in six consecutive Tests. South African Jacques Kallis and Pakistan’s Mohammad Yousuf are the others to have made centuries in five consecutive Tests.
India added 291 to their overnight total of 122/1, with Gambhir, Laxman (69 not out) and night watchman Amit Mishra (50) being the contributors. India declared their second innings at 413-8 shortly after tea. Bangladesh made 67/2 in their second innings at stumps on the fourth day.
