Virat Kohli Was Left Awestruck By Taijul Islam’s Bowling, His DRS Call Made Fans Unhappy
The Indian cricket team will try its best to clean sweep the 2-match test series against Bangladesh in order to improve its chances of playing the finals of the World Test Championship 2021-23 and in its first innings of the first test match which started yesterday at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram, team India has got all out at the score of 404 runs.
The Indian skipper KL Rahul who is leading the squad in absence of Rohit Sharma promised that the Indian side would play aggressive cricket but he himself played a slow innings of 22 runs (54 balls, 3 fours) and his opening partner Shubman Gill (20 runs, 40 balls, 3 fours) also played in the same manner. While senior batter Cheteshwar Pujara (90 runs, 203 balls, 11 fours) stood his ground strongly, fans were annoyed with the early dismissal of Virat Kohli on the bowling of Taijul Islam. Virat Kohli scored only one run but what hurt fans the most was the fact that first Kohli got confused with the delivery on which he got out bowled by Taijul Islam and then he wasted a DRS by opting for one.
However, here it is important to mention that it was difficult for the batter to understand whether the ball was in the line of the stumps.

Virat Kohli had scored his 72nd international century in the third and last ODI of the 3-match series against Bangladesh which India lost by 1-2 and his fans expected him to repeat the same performance in test matches as well.
As far as India’s first innings is concerned, Shreyas Iyer played a brilliant knock of 86 runs (192 balls, 10 fours) and Rishabh Pant played a quick innings of 46 runs (45 balls, 6 fours & 2 sixes). The tailenders Ravichandran Ashwin (58 runs, 113 balls, 2 fours & 2 sixes) and Kuldeep Yadav (40 runs, 114 balls, 5fours) made useful contributions which helped the Indian team in crossing the 400 mark.
Bangladesh is currently struggling in its first innings as it has already lost its 5 batters on the score of 95. Indian pacer Mohammed Siraj is bowling incredibly as he has taken 3 wickets in 9 overs and has conceded only 14 runs.
