Mohammed Siraj reveals what he said to Litton Das during a heated argument on Day 2 of 1st Test
The first test between India and Bangladesh at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram, is enclining towards the visitors. Team India is in the driving seat with a 254-run lead in the first innings. After scoring 404 runs, the Indian bowlers didn't let the hosts get away with their batting.
For India, Kuldeep Yadav picked up four wickets while Mohammed Siraj took three. Siraj started the inning with a first-ball wicket in the second inning and ended with a figure of 3/20, which included the wicket of in-form Litton Das.
However, a heated moment came when Siraj had a few words with Litton Das, which led to the wicket of the batter on Day 2. Now the bowler himself has revealed what he said to the batter. Notably, Litton and Siraj were seen exchanging a few words on the field.
Even so, the on-field umpire had to intervene, and on the very next ball, the batter was dismissed. It occurred in the 14th over of Bangladesh's inning. Das was batting at 24 runs, including four boundaries, and was looking good.
Siraj came out to bowl the first 14 overs, and on the very first ball, the batter played a defensive forward shot. In his follow-through, the Indian pacer said a few words. In reply, the batter also replied and gave an "I can't hear you" gesture.

Siraj bowled an in-swinging ball that stayed low on the next ball, and the batter was out. The Indian pacer was seen putting a finger on his lips during his wicket celebration. However, after the end of the second day, Siraj revealed what he said to Das.
He said, "No, nothing. I said, 'Ye T20 format Nahi hai, ye Test cricket hai (this isn't T20, this is Test cricket. Play sensible cricket."
Furthermore, he also spoke on his bowling plans in test cricket. He said that he always tries to bowl wicket-to wicket in the red-ball game because when the bounce is uneven, there are chances of getting bowled or LBW.
