IND vs BAN: Mohd Siraj reveals what he said to Litton Das in an altercation during India vs Bangladesh 1st test: The Indian team put themselves in a dominating position at the end of the second day of the opening test match against Bangladesh at Chattogram. A solid batting show by the tailenders followed by a roaring bowling performance by the Indians helped them to gain a solid upper hand in the match.
During Bangladesh’s innings, Indian pacer Mohammad Siraj got involved in a few verbal exchanges with Litton Das. The two mentioned players were caught having a go at each other before they were separated by the umpire.
Siraj, during the post-match press conference, revealed the words that he imparted on Litton Das, who was batting at the score of 24 runs, which certainly disrupted the batter’s concentration.
“No, nothing”. I said, ‘Ye T20 format nahi hai, ye Test cricket hai (this isn’t T20, this is Test cricket. Play sensible cricket,)” Siraj revealed when asked about his altercation with the Bangladeshi skipper.
Immediately after the exchange between the two, Siraj castled Litton Das’s stumps and sent him back to the pavilion. Following the dismissal of Litton Das, Virat Kohli also joined the aggressive celebration of Siraj.
