Thursday, India bowled out Bangladesh in their first innings of the second Test match being played in Dhaka. The total number of runs scored by Bangladesh was 227. Umesh Yadav and Ravichandran Ashwin each took four wickets for India.
After winning the toss and opting to bat first, Bangladesh’s first innings was ended after they lost wickets at regular intervals, despite the fact that Mominul Haque had the highest score with 84 runs.
India had reached a score of 19-0 when poor lighting brought an early halt to play on the first day of the match. Six overs had yet to be completed. At the close of play, India’s stand-in skipper KL Rahul was batting on three, and Shubman Gill was not out after scoring 14 runs.
In the penultimate over of the day, Rahul was ruled out leg-before on three after being bowled by Shakib, but the judgement was overturned when it was reviewed.
Even though numerous batters got off to good starts, India was able to prevent the hosts from forging a substantial partnership because to Umesh’s earlier four wickets for 25 runs and Ashwin’s four for 71 runs.
All three of Mominul’s other supporters, Mushfiqur Rahim (26), Liton Das (25), and Najmul Hossain (24), were unable to provide her with sustained assistance.
Mominul, who was participating in his debut game of the series, was out for the ninth wicket when he was dismissed after nicking Ashwin behind the wickets.
The left-hander reached his 16th Test fifty by hitting 12 fours and a six during the innings, which was also his first fifty in the last seven tests.
The Bangladeshi batting effort came to an end two balls later when the last man, Khaled Ahmed, gave a catch to Jaydev Unadkat at deep mid-wicket. Ashwin then declared the innings over.
Unadkat, a fast bowler, made his comeback to test cricket for the first time since his forgettable debut against South Africa in 2010. He shined in the first two sessions of the match before concluding with 2-50.
At the time of the tea break, Bangladesh had a score of 184-5, but in the final session, they were bowled over by Umesh’s accurate bowling, which led to the loss of three wickets in a row.
India won the first test by a score of 188 runs, but they are once again without their injured captain Rohit Sharma. Rahul is leading the team in his place.
Unadkat, a fast bowler, was brought into the game in place of Kuldeep Yadav, a left-arm spinner who had taken eight wickets in the first test and was subsequently voted player of the match for his performance.
The team from Bangladesh made two substitutions, putting Taskin Ahmed in for Ebadot Hossain, who was injured, and Mominul in for Yasir Ali.
