Virat Kohli’s confrontation with the Bangladesh players was the subject of Gavaskar’s slightly different perspective. According to the former India captain, the incident that occurred on Saturday originated in the first Test in Chattogram, when Kohli and Mohammed Siraj imitated Litton Das after getting him out.
In response to the Bangladesh cricketers’ raucous celebration of Virat Kohli’s wicket late on Day 3 of the second Test in Mirpur, legendary Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar responded. In the 20th over of India’s second innings, Kohli was bowled while attempting to play a forward defense off Mehidy Hasan Miraz.
After a shaky 22-ball 1-run inning, Mominul Haque made a brilliant low catch to remove the former India captain from the game.
Miraz sprinted towards his teammates while yelling his loudest, and nothing could stop him. Shakib Al Hasan, the captain of Bangladesh, Mushfiquir Rahim, the veteran batter, and pretty much all the Bangladesh players got into an emotional frenzy of celebration. At that very moment, something was stated to Kohli.
That was not taken lightly by the seasoned right-handed batter. He maintained his position and spoke briefly to the cricket players from Bangladesh who have huddled around.
Shakib Al Hasan, the captain of Bangladesh, crossed across, and Virat Kohli approached him while pointing at the huddle. Only after the umpires entered the room did Kohli turn around.
“It’s possible that someone said anything. I’m sure I was on the air. Nothing caught my eye. Who said what? Sunny Bhai was inquiring. I’m not entirely clear on what occurred. They were quite a distance from Kohli when the celebrations began. But he was not at all content,” Athar Ali Khan, a former cricketer for Bangladesh, made this statement on the post-match show on Sony Sports Network.
Gavaskar’s perspective was a little different. According to the former India captain, the incident that occurred on Saturday originated in the first Test in Chattogram, when Kohli and Mohammed Siraj imitated Litton Das after getting him out.
When Litton Das put his palm to Siraj’s ear during the first test and spoke to him, something strange occurred. He later received two balls. Although I was not present, I read about it. Siraj’s actions were imitated by Kohli and Siraj, who also placed their hands behind their ears.
