Verbal volleys exhanged between Litton Das and Mohammed Siraj

Litton Das struck a counter-punching fifty to enable Bangladesh’s lead to 108 against India at the end of the afternoon session in the Mirpur Test against India on Saturday. At Tea, Bangladesh were 195/7, with Das going great guns on 58 off 78 balls. His 15th Test fifty led the hosts’ retaliation as he forged crucial partnerships with Nurul Hasan and Taskin Ahmed. The visitors didn’t do themselves any favours with their slack groundwork, as Virat Kohli reprieved Das twice on 20 and 49.
