The second Test is now taking place at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka, and during the opening session of the second day of play, top wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant had to deal with an irate response from former Indian captain and great batter Virat Kohli.
After the miscommunication between the two in the middle nearly resulted in Virat’s dismissal, Kohli gave the 25-year-old stumper a death glare.

When Virat was at strike on the final ball before lunch, the event took place. He flipped a shot to mid-on and was eager to take a single as he was out of his crease and on the offensive foot. Pant, though, sent him back after refusing to join the chase. By diving, Kohli arrives to the crease just in time. However, he appeared a little irritated by the error and gave Pant a death gaze.
The death gaze Pant received from Kohli on Friday, December 23 was not the first time. Virat gave the Delhi youngster a death gaze when he went out for a golden duck during the third One Day International on India’s tour of South Africa in January of this year.
India Lose Early Wickets On Day 2
Speaking of the contest, India had amassed a score of 86 for three in 36 overs at the time of lunch on Day 2. Pant, who got 12 runs off of 14 balls with the aid of a four, is providing strong support for Virat, who is now batting at 18 runs off 65 balls.
In the morning session, India lost three wickets, and Taijul Islam was responsible for all three dismissals. On the first delivery of the 14th over of the innings, the 30-year-old left-arm orthodox spinner got rid of India’s acting captain KL Rahul (10) before dismissing his opening partner Shubman Gill (20) after 12 balls.
During the first session, Pujara, who had just become the eighth Indian batsman to surpass 7,000 runs in Test cricket, was the third hitter to be struck out. Mominul Haque managed to capture him.
Sourav Ganguly (7212), Virat Kohli (8112*), Virender Sehwag (8503), VVS Laxman (8781), Sunil Gavaskar (10122), Rahul Dravid (13265), and Sachin Tendulkar are ahead of Pujara with 7008 runs (15921). Pujara was fired for 24 just as it looked he was settling in when Taijul entered the scene.
