Taijul regretted coming to the press conference
Bangladesh beat India in the Chittagong Test. Cheteshwar Pujara and Shreyas Iyer formed the pair. Bangladesh also contributed to the pair by taking multiple catches. Dhaka Test is also under India’s control at the end of the second day. Rishabh Pant and Iyer saved the team in danger. Catch misses play a big role in that pair.
Taijul had to regret coming to the press conference. But he said that they want to win the match. That is why he is expecting good batting from the batters in the second innings. India took a lead of 87 runs from the first innings. He wants 250 runs on the board after repaying that lead.
The left-arm spinner, who took four wickets in the first innings, said, “It will be good if we can take a lead of 250 runs.” To make the lead 250, we have to bat the entire third day. After that, we have to see how the wicket is used on the fourth and fifth day.
Mirpur’s wicket is difficult to bat on the fourth and fifth days. Even on the third day, a tough test awaits the Bangladesh batters. Taijul feels that once the batters are set, they should try to extend the lead as much as possible. According to him, lead 300 to 350 is better.
He also thinks that Bangladesh scored a lot of runs in the second session during India’s batting, “If we didn’t get wickets, even if we scored less runs, it would have been very good for us.” We also dropped a lot of catches. There were three clear chances. If given a chance against a big team, they will not give up.
Bangladesh were all out in the first innings after two hundred runs. India lost 4 wickets for 94 runs. After making a pair of 159 runs, it was also a success to get the team all out after 300 runs. According to Taijul, they are not far behind in the match. Apart from this, the Test expert also mentioned that Shakib, who had fitness concerns, bowled with 100%.
