Virat Kohli shouts at Najmul Shanto for wasting time during Day 2 of Bangladesh vs India 2nd Test. The ineffective behavior of the Bangladesh batsman in Bangladesh vs India irked the former Indian skipper, who decided to give a befitting reply by threatening to take off his jersey.
The Bangladeshi opener’s tactics failed to impress Kohli, who was heard shouting, “shart bhi khol le apni” (open your shirt too), as he started pulling off his jersey.

A few overs before the end of the second day’s play, the entire team of Team India was dismissed for 314 runs. After the fifth ball of the sixth over, Bangladeshi batsman Najmul Hossain Shanto began tying his shoelaces and ensured that the timer ran out to avoid an extra over being bowled.
Bangladesh opener Zakir Hasan faced off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin while non-striker Shantu bent down to tie his shoelaces. Shanto’s tactics enrage Virat, who hilariously tells Shanto to take off his shirt and starts bending over his jersey.
Bangladesh vs India: Shanto changes his bat multiple times to waste time.
It is important to note that this was not the only time Shanto slowed down proceedings. As soon as the Bangladesh batsmen opened the batting, Shanto requested a new bat. Bangladesh came with several bats to choose from as their 12th man. But Shanto kept on using the same bat after inspecting each one.
Earlier, India’s Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer scored brilliant runs as India posted a total of 314 runs. And took a crucial lead of 87 runs in the first innings. Iyer and Pant scored 87 and 93 respectively for the crucial fifth wicket partnership.
After scoring a modest 227 in the first innings. India’s veteran bowlers Ravichandran Ashwin and Umesh Yadav took 4-4 wickets. While Undictated took a few, Bangladesh will now look to bat better in the second innings to add some interest to the game.
