On Day 2 of the first match in the series between the two teams, pacer Mohammed Siraj and spinner Kuldeep Yadav wreaked havoc with the ball after Cheteshwar Pujara, Shreyas Iyer, and Ravichandran Ashwin’s outstanding batting performance propelled India to a challenging total against Bangladesh in the first Test. On Day 2 at Chattogram, the Shakib Al Hasan-led Bangladesh team was reduced to 133-8 by pacer Siraj and spin wizard, who shared seven wickets.

Former Indian pacer Ajit Agarkar praised speedster Siraj for India’s bowling performance in the first Test against hosts Bangladesh. Former Indian bowler Agarkar offered an interesting comment regarding Siraj’s faultless bowling effort in the first innings after KL Rahul-led Team India beat Bangladesh on Day 2 of the first Test.

He bowls without showing any signs of weakness. He can bowl quickly through the air and pitch it high if you need him to. He is capable of hitting the length if necessary. There is an outswing for right-handers when the ball exits his hand appropriately. He is thus capable of playing a variety of bowling games. His commitment to giving every over and every delivery of his bowling his all has been a career high point. It has been a highlight, but I’m not suggesting nobody else does it, Agarkar told Sony Sports.

On Day 2 of the first Test at Chattogram, pacer Siraj bowled 9 overs and claimed 3 wickets. Najmul Hossain Shanto, the leadoff batsman for Bangladesh, was struck out by the first ball of the game for India. Najmul Hossain Shanto and Litton Das, two prominent batsmen, were also defeated by the effective bowler. Bangladesh, captained by Shakib, is 271 runs behind.

“Since of his quickness, the hitters don’t have time to react when there is an irregular bounce because the lines were so close together. If you have to dismiss a good hitter who has played for some time, you need to have the ability that he has, and Litton Das was looking excellent “Agarkar said.
