IND vs BAN: Mohammed Siraj And Litton Das Involved In Sledging Before The Latter’s Dismissal, Virat Kohli Joins Too

On Day 2 of the first Test match, the 28-year-old India National Cricket Team pacer Mohammed Siraj was involved in a heated exchange with Litton Das, who recently led Bangladesh National Cricket Team to a 2-1 ODI series win over the Men In Blue.

The first Test of the two-match series between the KL Rahul-led India and Shakib Al Hasan-led Bangladesh is currently underway at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram. 

Bangladesh were off to a poor start in their first innings on Thursday, December 15, as all the batters struggled against Siraj, who was bowling exceptionally well.

On the first ball of the 14th over, Siraj and Litton Das were involved in a verbal banter. Siraj bowled a 140kmph delivery to Litton, who defended it on the back foot, and then in his followthrough, the pacer said a few words to the Bangladesh batter. Litton Das came down the track to get back to Siraj and cheekily signaled that he didn’t hear anything.

 

The war of words with Siraj had an impact on the Bangladesh batter as on the very next ball of the over, he bottom-edged a good length delivery onto his stumps to get dismissed. Litton Das scored 24 runs off 30 runs, including 5 fours.

In their first innings, India posted 404 runs on the board with the help of good half-centuries by Cheteshwar Pujara, Shreyas Iyer, and Ravichandran Ashwin. Also, Rishabh Pant and Kuldeep Yadav contributed good 40s.

On Day 2, Iyer got out for 86, but Ravichandran Ashwin and Kuldeep Yadav had an amazing 87-run partnership. Ashwin scored amazing 58 runs and Kuldeep Yadav amassed good 40 runs.
