Murali Vijay and Virat Kohli changed the equation of the only test match between Bangladesh. Their performance created an extra pressure on Bangladeshi cricket players. It was a great opportunity for Bangladesh to show their ability to play test cricket against the number one test playing nation of the world. Today Bangladeshi bowlers started very well. Taskin Ahmed got the first wicket of KL Rahul. That was just an amazing thing to see from a young pace bowler like Taskin Ahmed. But after that bowlers couldn’t continue consistency. Mehedi Miraz helped Murali Vijay to get a century.
In his over Murali Vijay gave an opportunity to gave away his wicket. Mehedi Miraz missed that chance and gave a huge chance to Murali to get his 9th century in test cricket. Taijul Islam didn’t make any mistake to get Murali’s wicket. He broke the stump and bowled him. He tried to sweep the ball, and on that moment Taijul Islam used his brain and took the most valuable wicket. After scoring 108 runs, that kind of sweep shot was unexpected from Murali. But what he did for his team that was appreciable.
Today it was a huge challenge for Virat Kohli to score a big one against Bangladesh. The average of Virat against Bangladesh was 14 runs. Some people can be amazed after fearing this. But it was true. Today he also scored well and got another century. He will be playing in the 2nd innings because still, he is unbeaten at 111 runs.
After Murali Vijay’s wicket, Bangladeshi players were thinking to create pressure on Indian batting lineup, but Virat Kohli didn’t let that happen. He showed his master class performance and got the driving seat of the only test match. India will start their 2nd day with a lot of aggressions to score more. Can Bangladesh survive in this test match or not this the most important question by now for sure.
