BAN vs IND, 1st Test: Here’s Why India Got 5 Penalty Runs As Gift In The 1st Inning

India has made a strong start in the Test series and is outperforming the hosts after suffering heartbreak in the ODI series. After two days of play, the KL Rahul-led team has a large lead of 271 runs, and a significant victory for the visitors appears to be in the cards.

India passed the 400-run threshold and posted a massive total of 404 thanks to a half-century by R Ashwin and a pivotal 40 by Kuldeep Yadav. India briefly appeared to be incapable of breaking over that barrier. India passed the 400-run threshold because of the game-changing 92-run partnership between Kuldeep and Ashwin.

To surpass 400, India also required a little assistance from Bangladesh. After Bangladesh was penalized in the 112th over, India was given 5 additional runs. Ashwin and Kuldeep sprinted two when the ball traveled behind the wickets on the second delivery of the over.

India was given five additional runs after the third man fielder’s throw struck a helmet that was positioned behind the wicketkeeper. According to the rules, if a throw strikes a member of the fielding team’s helmet, the batting side is given 5 extra runs.
The fielding team has been penalized for this on numerous occasions, and India received 5 additional runs for it on Day 1 of the Chattogram Test match.

In the first innings, Shreyas Iyer and Cheteshwar Pujara fell short of a well-deserved century. Iyer was dismissed for 86 on day 2, while Pujara was knocked out for 90 on day 1. Only 4 runs were added to his overnight total.
Kuldeep Yadav and Mohammed Siraj have handled the ball well for Team India. In just 10 overs of bowling, Kuldeep produced a four-for, while Siraj has taken 3 wickets thus far.
