“Ye T20 Nahi hai….” Mohd Siraj Owned Litton Das After Bowling Him Out In The 1st Innings

In the ongoing first Test match between Team India and Bangladesh, the visitors were reduced to 133/8 in the first innings on Day 2. After KL Rahul decided to bat, the visitors scored a respectable 404 runs, with crucial half-centuries coming from Cheteshwar Pujara (90), Shreyas Iyer (87), and Ravichandran Ashwin (57). Kuldeep Yadav, a spinner, also played a significant role with the bat, scoring 40 runs in the first innings.

By dismissing Najmul Hossain Shanto with his first delivery of the innings, Mohammed Siraj gave India the perfect start with the ball. However, later in the innings when Siraj bowled to Litton Das, things got quite heated. The on-field umpire had to step in to stop a charging Litton Das as Siraj walked towards his run-up after Litton played a defensive shot towards the gully. The two then exchanged a few words.

Siraj castled Litton and made a finger-on-lips motion during the very next delivery. Siraj finished the day with strong stats of 3/14 and discussed the issue with Litton in the post-game press conference.
The Indian pacer laughed when the reporter inquired about what he said to the Bangladeshi batter. He said, “No, nothing. I said, ‘Ye T20 format nahi hai, ye Test cricket hai (this isn’t T20, this is Test cricket. Play sensible cricket.’”

When the play of Day 3 resumes on Friday, Kuldeep Yadav—who scalped 4 Bangladeshi batters for only 33 runs on Day 2—will be going for a third Test five-wicket haul after a strong showing with the ball.

Kuldeep Yadav after the day ended said, “I was a bit nervous. I was very lucky to get the first wicket in the first over and got the momentum back.”

He added, “After a couple of overs, I started feeling well, mixed my pace and variations, tried both the angles — over the wicket and round the wicket. I was getting proper turn, I was actually loving it. After I got injured, I started working on my rhythm, trying to be a bit quicker — that’s helping me a lot.”
