Umesh and Ashwin enable India to prevail



In the first day of the second Test in Mirpur, India bowled out Bangladesh for 227 with the help of Umesh Yadav and R Ashwin's four-fors, as well as Jaydev Unadkat's 2 for 50 on his test comeback after 12 years. Mominul Haque led Bangladesh's batting as a few others blew good opportunities, scoring 84 in his first Test match back. The Bangladesh number three gave up around an hour before stumps as India continued to break dangerous stands. This was part of a late collapse of 5 for 14.

Shakib al Hasan chose to bat on a greenish Mirpur wicket, and India's acting skipper KL Rahul was honest enough to say he had no idea what to do. The visitors surprised everyone by making the difficult decision to substitute Unadkat for the Player of the Match on Test comeback from Chattogram, Kuldeep Yadav. The decision was quickly vindicated by the fact that the hosts had added Taskin Ahmed in addition to Mominul.

The Bangladesh openers kept up their end of the deal for the first hour, even though it was laced with a fair amount of luck. Shakib had intended his batsmen to see through the first session cautiously before the pitch eased out for batting. The ball frequently beat the bat thanks to India's three-pronged speed assault, but the openers persevered. One apparent opportunity was presented by Zakir Hasan off the first ball he faced, but it was snuffed out by a running-in and diving Mohammed Siraj among the several edges that eluded the fielders.

On the other side of the drinks interval, Unadkat, who had missed the second-highest number of matches (118) between his two outings for India, made his Test cricket debut. Zakir struggled to cut a ball of sufficient length because of the increased bounce and provided a straightforward catch for Rahul at fourth slip. Najmul Hossain Shanto was adjudged leg before wicket (LBW) in the following over after shouldering an Ashwin straight delivery. The on-field judgement was upheld after the Bangladesh opener was reviewed and it was discovered that the ball had barely touched an off-stump.

Mominul appeared reliable in the middle despite nine consecutive innings with single-digit scores earlier. He served as the focal point around which Bangladesh's batting circled. When the bowlers offered width or anything overpitched, he was quick to seize the opportunity. Shakib, who had moved up to the number 4 position, occasionally walked out to take on Ashiwn early in his innings.

Together, Rahim and Mominul put together a 48-run partnership for the fourth wicket to help the hosts recover. He began by driving through the off-side, and by the end of the 36th over, the team had reached 100. Both sides of it had LBW appeals that he managed to win; the first was after India burned a review because the hit was outside off, and the second was a case where they neglected to check (perhaps because of height) but the leg-stump was actually clipped. Rahim soon moved through it and ended Ashwin's subsequent over with a hat-trick of boundaries, taking the spinner out of the attack.

Mominul, on the other hand, continued in the same vein and further increased the stakes as he engaged Unadkat. On consecutive balls, he flicked the seamer through midwicket. Rahim was defeated by the pacer with a peach that was slanted in and shaped away from the right-hander, who nicked it to Pant's right and fell on 26. Mominul, who ramped a bouncer over the slip cordon for four before completing his half-century with a cut to backward point off a short and wide delivery, was unaffected by the breakthrough.

India wasted a second review in an attempt to overturn Mominul's LBW appeal, but the ball was pitching outside leg. Together with Mehidy Hasan Miraz, he and Bangladesh made it to tea with an addition of 102 runs for three wickets in the session, and upon his return, he continued the repair work. Mominul entered the 80s with a long-on slog over Ashwin, but Umesh came back to end yet another promising partnership just in time, resulting in a devastating collapse.

Shubman Gill got things going for India in the eight waning-light overs with a six straight down the ground against Shakib. Rahul, on the other hand, has already managed a few escapes, with Bangladesh using a review to overturn a caught-behind appeal and the India skipper using one of his to avoid being given out by leg before wicket as the ball was missing the stumps. India had gone 19 games without a loss by the time the game was close.
