Mohammed Siraj celebrated with fervour and Virat too joined in by enacting the same cheeky gesture that Litton did
In a comfortable position, the Indian cricket team finished the second day of the first Test against Bangladesh in Chattogram on Thursday. At the end of the second day, the hosts had achieved 133/8 in response to India’s first innings score of 404. Mohammed Siraj, a pacer, replied with 3/14 while spinner Kuldeep Yadav finished with 4/33. There were a few sledging incidents as well, with one involving Siraj and Litton Das of Bangladesh garnering the most attention. During the day’s last session, it occurred in Bangladesh’s innings’ fourteenth over.
Litton Das had reached 24 and had not yet scored a run in the third session. After bowling the first ball of the 14th over, Siraj approached Litton and spoke with him. Das jokingly indicated that he didn’t hear anything when he approached the India pacer in response to Siraj’s dig. The umpire got involved and expelled Siraj. The very next ball, Siraj bowled Das with a nip-back delivery. Virat Kohli participated in the jubilant celebration of the bowler by making the same sly motion as Litton did.
Earlier, after adding 126 runs to their overnight total of 278-6, India was all out in the second session. Bangladeshi off-spinner Mehidy finished with 4-112 while left-arm spinner Taijul took 4-133.
In the India innings, Ravichandran Ashwin scored 58 runs against Bangladesh’s attack, the third half-century following Cheteshwar Pujara’s 90 and Shreyas Iyer’s 86.

Kuldeep Yadav (40), who helped Ashwin tremendously, contributed 92 runs for the seventh wicket. Iyer resumed on 82, but he was bowled by Ebadot in the morning’s eighth over, preventing him from reaching a century.
