Ravichandran Ashwin revealed a humorous incident within the Indian dressing room involving Rishabh Pant in the course of the third day of the 2nd Test in opposition to Bangladesh within the not too long ago concluded sequence.

“Vikram Paaji asked Kohli whether he needed a night watchman. Kohli said that he will take care and didn’t need a night watchman. Rishabh Pant will usually keep the towel on top of his head and will lie down on the table. I don’t know the exact reason for him doing that,” Ashwin mentioned in his YouTube channel.

“Vikram Rathour said to Pant that’Virat said he didn’t need a night watchman. Do you need?” to which Pant replied, ‘I need watchmen throughout the night. I will go and play tomorrow’. I couldn’t cease laughing when he mentioned that casually. When I used to be extraordinarily nervous, there he was relaxed and cracking a joke,” he added within the video.

“Rathour Bhai was like, “We have only Jaydev Unadkat left. Who else should we send?” Pant was like, “Send Ash Bhai, or send whoever you want. I will go bat tomorrow,” Ashwin mentioned with amusing.

In the tail finish of the third day, Bangladesh spinners, led by their talismanic skipper Shakib Al Hasan and younger Mehidy Hasan Miraz, had compelled Indian batters to press the panic button in a tough chase of 145 because the guests ended an that day’s play, tottering at 45 for 4 within the second Test on the Mirpur Stadium.

Ultimately, a dogged 71-run stand between Ashwin and Shreyas Iyer got here to India’s rescue because the guests fought again from a hopeless scenario to tug off a three-wicket win over Bangladesh on Day 4.
