WATCH: Ebadat Hossain comes up with salute celebration after Taijul Islam’s stunner to dismiss Virat Kohli

Posted On

Bangladesh concussion substitute Taijul Islam on Saturday sent back India captain Virat Kohli for 136 with a stunning catch in the outfield on Day 2 of the ongoing Day-Night Test.

Taijul was called in along with Mehidy Hasan as substitutes for Nayeem Hasan and Liton Das, both of whom ruled out of the remaining match due to concussion fears after being hit on the helmet in the first innings.

Taijul, a left-arm spinner, made his presence felt by picking the wicket of Ajinkya Rahane for 51 and then played a crucial role behind Kohli’s big wicket off fast bowler Ebadat Hossain.

Kohli, who completed his 27th Test century in the first session, flicked a sliding leg-side delivery from Ebadat to be caught by a diving Taijul at fine leg.

It was Ebadat’s third delivery with the second new ball that Bangladesh took in the 81st over, and the bowler proceeded to give Kohli a Sheldon Cottrellesque salute.
