Najmul Shanto receives a mouthful from Siraj for two overs; the Bangladesh opener’s reaction is amusing.

Najmul Shanto receives a mouthful from Siraj for two overs; the Bangladesh opener's reaction is amusing.

Najmul Shanto responded differently to Siraj’s slur than Litton Das, and it was absolutely priceless. Immediately following Bangladesh opener Najmul Hossain Shanto’s heroic half-century score that propelled the hosts past the 100-run mark without a loss of wicket in their enormous pursuit of 513, India pacer Mohammed Siraj gave the opener a mouthful at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram during the first innings of the ongoing first Test. The Bangladeshi opener, though, responded differently than Litton, and it was absolutely priceless.

After Litton handed it back to Siraj, there was a heated argument in the opening innings. After being dismissed, the bowler joined Virat Kohli in making fun of the Bangladesh skipper, giving Siraj the victory in the end.

On Saturday, in the 34th over, shortly after Shanto reached his fifty, Siraj glared at the batter in an attempt to frighten him. Shanto, in contrast to Litton, preferred to turn his head and smile. The very next ball, Siraj approached Shanto once more, and this time some words were spoken. The Bangladesh opener looked at each other.

After an over, Siraj tried to irritate the batsman by continuing their battle, but Shanto simply grinned back at the Indian pacer. Then, in the third ball of the over, he smashed a four off Siraj’s shorter delivery to bring up the 100-run partnership for Bangladesh’s opening duo.

India had set Bangladesh a 513-run total on Friday in response to centuries from Cheteshwar Pujara and Shubman Gill, as well as three 50-run stands from the visitors. At 258 for two, India eventually declared their innings over.

At the end of day 3, Bangladesh’s starters had lowered the objective to 471.
