India are facing Bangladesh in the final Test of their ongoing series in Dhaka. 

On Day 1, the bowlers were at their best, with Umesh Yadav and R Ashwin at their best. 

The pace and spin duo bagged four wickets each as Bangladesh were bundled for 227 runs. 

Ashwin's four wickets put him on a special list which also has former spin stalwart, Anil Kumble.

He is now joint-fourth for the most 4-wicket hauls in Tests by spin bowler, alongside Rangana Herath of Sri Lanka.

Anil Kumble is third on the list with 66 four-wicket bags to his name.

The record for the most is held by Sri Lanka's Muttiah Muralidharan at 112. 

Second is late Australian legend Shane Warne, who ended his career with 85 such hauls.
