Shubman Gill and Virat Kohli were two of the crucial wickets that Taijul took
14 December, 2022
Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan lost the toss and was asked to field by his Indian captain KL Rahul in the first Test match in Chattogram.
He said that at this location, wickets often fall more frequently in the first session of Day 1 and then at the end of the third, fourth, and fifth sessions. With 85 on the board, left-arm spinner Taijul Islam proved Shakib correct as India headed to lunch three down.

Shubman Gill and Virat Kohli were two of the crucial wickets that Taijul took. While Gill's shot was disappointing, Taijul's pass to Kohli was outstanding.
Taijul totally outsmarted Kohli, who had just came in to bat after India lost Rahul, who is leading the team in place of the injured Rohit Sharma.
In the third delivery of the 20th over, the left-arm spinner got one to just drift and turn to avoid Kohli's bat and hit his pads right in front of the stumps. In fact, Kohli would have done better if he had played the ball with his front foot.
"Kohli was completely bamboozled by Taijul," said former Australia spinner Brad Hogg during commentary.
Reminder for all is that India already lost the ODI series against the Bangal Tigers 2-0.
