KL Rahul’s mistake was huge, Team India was forced to field ‘Night Watchman’


highlights

The second test match between India and Bangladesh has become exciting
Bangladesh has set a target of 145 runs in front of India.

new Delhi. The two-match Test series being played against Bangladesh is considered important for the Indian cricket team. After winning the first match, now the team seems to be in trouble in the second match. On the third day of the match, the Indian bowlers managed to bundle out the hosts Bangladesh for 231 runs in the second innings. In the remaining game of more than two days, the target of 145 runs is in front of the team.

The form of the acting captain of the Indian team, KL Rahul, is constantly deceiving. Even against Bangladesh, he longed to score runs. In the absence of Rohit Sharma for Team India, Rahul, who came to captain the two-Test series, flopped badly with the bat. Captain Saheb, who failed to score runs in three consecutive innings, returned disappointingly in the last innings of the tour. For the entire duration, he was able to add only 57 runs in 4 innings of 2 matches.

The team needed to be handled in the second innings and because of them the team got into trouble. Cheteshwar Pujara was dismissed immediately after Rahul and in compulsion the Indian team had to field Akshar Patel as night watchman.

what is night watchman

Night watchman is a term used in Test cricket. When the leading batsman’s wicket falls in the last session of the match and there is talk of cutting some overs, then a lower-order batsman is sent to the field. The night watchman is sent in order not to lose the wicket of his leading batsman at the last moment in the day’s play. After the dismissals of KL Rahul and Cheteshwar Pujara on the third day in the second innings of the Mirpur Test, Akshar Patel was sent as night watchman.
