After a valiant stand for the opening wicket, the hosts were jolted with the first wicket in the 47th over of the last inning of the first Test match on Saturday. After opting to bat first, KL Rahul & men scored 404 in the first inning. They then bowled out Bangladesh at a score of 150 and then came into bat again, putting in 258 before declaring the innings. With more than 300 runs still required for Bangladesh to win this Test and a full day remaining, let’s see where the game goes.
On the fourth day of the ongoing 1st Test, Umesh Yadav drew the first blood for India. Opener Najmul Hossain Shanto was caught in awe as Virat Kohli almost dropped the batter before wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant completed it. Being Virat Kohli’s catch, the Indian batter messed it up, but Pant’s presence of mind called for it as he dived left to complete after leaving in the first attempt.

The fans praised Pant but also trolled Kohli for dropping the catch. Here's a look at some of the reactions on the same:
