In the first innings of the inaugural Test match against Bangladesh on Thursday, Team India scored a respectable 404 runs. India had a challenging start in Chattogram when KL Rahul decided to bat, as the team lost three fast wickets within the first 20 overs. Shubman Gill, the opener, was the first to go down; after having an encouraging start to his innings, Gill was dismissed softly by Taijul Islam on 20 off 40 deliveries. Virat Kohli fell on 1 before Rahul was quickly removed on 22.

Salman Butt, a former captain of Pakistan, discussed in-depth India’s batting performance on Day 1 of the Test and expressed regret in the manner in which Gill lost his wicket. Gill committed to do a paddle sweep but encountered a heavy top edge that carried to Yasir Ali at leg slip.

Although Gill is a skilled player, Butt said that such innings would endanger him more than help.

“It was negligent. In Test cricket, the sweep and the catch are both performed. Shubman Gill said, “Aaj bhi usne do cuts jo maare, kya baat hai,” in response to the question. Mark Waugh and Damien Martyn are here, please go ahead and leave. (You do a sweep in a Test match of cricket and lose a catch at slip. The minute you think you’re witnessing a Mark Waugh or a Damien Martyn because Shubman Gill looks so fantastic, he exits),” Butt stated on his own YouTube account.
