On Day 2 of the first Test match, the 28-year-old India National Cricket Team pacer Mohammed Siraj was involved in a heated exchange with Litton Das, who recently led Bangladesh National Cricket Team to a 2-1 ODI series win over the Men In Blue.
The first Test of the two-match series between the KL Rahul-led India and Shakib Al Hasan-led Bangladesh is currently underway at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram.

Bangladesh were off to a poor start in their first innings on Thursday, December 15, as all the batters struggled against Siraj, who was bowling exceptionally well.
On the first ball of the 14th over, Siraj and Litton Das were involved in a verbal banter. Siraj bowled a 140kmph delivery to Litton, who defended it on the back foot, and then in his followthrough, the pacer said a few words to the Bangladesh batter. Litton Das came down the track to get back to Siraj and cheekily signaled that he didn’t hear anything.

The war of words with Siraj had an impact on the Bangladesh batter as on the very next ball of the over, he bottom-edged a good length delivery onto his stumps to get dismissed. Litton Das scored 24 runs off 30 runs, including 5 fours.
