Bangladesh off-spinner Mehidy Hasan Miraz took a fifer in India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test match at Shere Bangla Stadium, Dhaka. He asked some really tough questions to the Indian batters with his ball. Indian batters were tricked by his brilliant bowling and lost their 7 batters on the score of just 74.

Talking about the match, Bangladesh won the toss and opted to bat first in the second Test match. The Bangla Tigers didn’t have a good time with the bat as they were bowled out for 227 runs in the first innings with Mominul Haque being the top-scorer, playing a brilliant knock of 84 runs. However, he couldn’t get support from any other batters from the other end.

Indian bowlers put up a great show with the ball as Umesh Yadav and Ravichandran Ashwin bagged 4 wickets each, while Jaydev Unadkat, who made his comeback after 12 years, took 2 wickets. Coming in to bat in the 2nd inning, India too had a bad start as out-of-form KL Rahul disappointed the fans, once again, getting out for only 10 runs. Shreyas Iyer and Pant stitched a 159-run partnership and helped India to take some lead before the whole team got out.

Bangladesh again had a bad start in the 3rd inning as well. They were in trouble as the team lost 6 wickets for only 113. But the partnership between Nurul Hasan and Litton Das helped Bangladesh fight back and shifted the momentum in their favor. Once Nurul departed, it was the partnership between Litton and Taskin Ahmed that stretched the lead, further, and set the target of 145 for India.

Coming in to bat in the 4th inning, India lost their 4 batters at the end of day 3. On day 4, left-handed batter Axar Patel looked promising in the start but couldn’t keep his wicket safe and got out to Miraz. Miraz also got the crucial breakthrough of Pant and had India reeling at 74 for 7.
