Bangladesh’s cricket has been going through tumultuous times for the past 2- 3 months both on and off fields. Bangladesh local manager, Tapan Chaki, for the day and night Test match in Eden Gardens, Kolkata has come under the scanner of an anti-corruption unit (ACU) of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
Chaki broke the protocol by using a mobile phone inside the visiting team’s dressing room in spite of being warned against doing so.
A BCCI official confirmed the same and said that he will now be called for a hearing. He said, “The protocol is that the ACU officer on duty will report the matter and Chaki will be called for a hearing. If evidence is found against him, then the rest follows.”
Coming back to the Test, Virat Kohli and his quick bowling trio trampled Bangladesh by an innings and 46 runs to complete a 2-0 series whitewash and ace their maiden pink-ball Test in Kolkata on Sunday.
Within 47 minutes of play, the Indian team won the Test and series. India’s pace trio of Ishant Sharma (9 wickets), Umesh Yadav (8) and Mohammed Shami (2) grabbed all the 19 Bangladeshi wickets to fall in the match.
After India declared their first innings on 347/9 on Saturday, Bangladesh slumped to 14/3 by the seventh over and risked losing the match inside two days. But Mushfiqur Rahim stood tall and ensured the match went into the third afternoon.
This was India’s 12th consecutive home series victory as they also became the first team ever to complete four successive innings victories in the five-day format. India had won the first Test against Bangladesh by an innings and 130 runs in Indore.
