Hyderabad: After messing up with the Decision Review System (DRS) call on the first day of the one-off India-Bangladesh Test, Mushfiqur Rahim made a mess of a golden chance to dismiss Wriddhiman Saha, on Friday.
The mistake proved too costly as Saha made an unbeaten 106 to lead India to a mammoth total of 687/6. On the first delivery of the 118th over, bowled by left-arm spinner Taijul Islam, Saha – who was batting on 4- decided to come down the track. The batsman, however, failed to connect the bat with ball, ending up giving an opportunity to the Bangladesh skipper to remove the Bengal cricketer.
But as fate would have it, Rahim failed to take the bails off in two attempts, and by the time he did whip the bails off, Saha was back into the crease.
On the first day of the play, the Bangladesh captain asked for a review against Kohli as he played a harmless defensive shot off spinner Taijul Islam’s bowling.
The review revealed that the ball made absolutely no contact with Kohli’s pads. In fact, it had struck the India skipper’s bat in the sweet spot.
