Shreyash Iyer got a massive slice of luck in Bangladesh vs India first Test Match

When Ebadot Hossain breached his defence to hit the stumps, the Indian middle-order batter was on 77. In the match of Bangladesh in Chattogram, Shreyash Iyer got another chance by his luck.

Shreyash Iyer got a massive slice of luck late on day one of the first Test. It was against Bangladesh in Chattogram on Wednesday. To Bangladesh’s dismay, the bails failed to dislodge and rested back on the stumps. The bail has to be fully dislodged for a batter to be given out, says the Law 29.1 of the MCC Laws of cricket.

This caused a delay in play

According to the rules, the wicket is broken when at least one bail is completely removed from the top of the stumps. Or, when one or more stumps is removed from the ground.
That time, the bail was replaced only three balls earlier when it failed to light up. And this caused a delay in play. It was this exact bail that failed to come off when Ebadot hit the stumps, and this brought Iyer’s luck all over. also read:-Athiya Shetty and KL Rahul Wedding Celebration

An incredible sequence of play was noted in the match

An incredible sequence of play was seen in Bangladesh vs India’s Test match. In the match, Shreyas Iyer is bowled by Ebadot Hossain. But, the bails just refuse to fall Bangladesh. However, he somehow managed a wicket in the very next over. And he broke a solid 149-run partnership between Iyer and Cheteshwar Pujara. The latter was cleaned up by Taijul Islam with a sharp delivery. This turned square and beat the defensive push by the No.3 Indian batter.

To give Bangladesh a bit of relief, Axar Patel was dismissed off the final ball of the day . With India six down for 278 at the close of play,Shreyas Iyer remained unbeaten on 82 at stumps.
