Bangladesh openers began positively in the second T20I against India at the Saurashtra Cricket Association (SCA) Stadium in Rajkot, with some help from the Indian fielders.

Yuzvendra Chahal could have had his first wicket of the match if not for wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant's slip-up behind the stumps. Off the third ball of the fifth over, Chahal tossed the ball around off-stump and beat Liton Das, who skipped down the track and tried to go aerial.

Pant collected the ball and took the bails off in a jiffy, only for the replays to reveal that a part of Pant's gloves was in front of the stumps when the ball made the first contact with the gloves.

It was given a no-ball, and Liton celebrated the reprieve with two back-to-back boundaries. Liton got yet another life on 26 when a top edge off his slog sweep evaded the hands of a diving Rohit Sharma.

However, Chahal eventually had Liton out; Pant redeeming himself by hitting the stumps direct at the non-striker's end.
