BANGLADESH: In the second test match in Mirpur, India defeated Bangladesh by three wickets with the crucial assistance of Shreyas Iyer and Ravichandran Ashwin.
India whitewashed Bangladesh 2-0 in the two-match Test series.
After Mehidy Hasan Miraz and Shakib Al Hasan took five and two wickets, respectively, Team India’s 145-run chase took a severe hit.
But a magnificent 71-run partnership between Shreyas Iyer (29) and Ravichandran Ashwin (42) propelled Team India to a three-wicket victory. Axar Patel also scored 34 runs in addition to them.
Earlier, Axar took three wickets for India, while Mohammed Siraj and Ashwin each took two.
In the second innings of the second Test match in Mirpur, Virat Kohli was out for one run and got into a heated argument with a few Bangladesh players.
Being the senior batter, Kohli was held in high regard. India was in disarray following Mehidy Hasan Miraz’s onslaught, and much was expected of him.
Instead, he managed to hold on for 21 balls before being caught at the short forward leg, which sparked a commotion across the entire crowd.
But what transpired next shocked everyone who saw Kohli invite a certain player to come and speak to him privately.
In fact, while things were tense, the India batsman overheard a few remarks being made to him and notified Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan of his displeasure.
Kohli might have also been hurt by his inability to
save the contest for India.
