During this time, the wicket of the Bangladeshi batsman Taijul Islam is gaining a lot of headlines. In the world of cricket, hardly anyone has seen a batsman getting out in this way before.
In fact, Taijul was trying to defend by going to the backfoot on the short ball of Pacer Suranga Lakmal in the first innings. Just then, his shoe opened to the stumps and he was out to be a hit wicket.
Everyone was surprised at this wicket of Taijul. Even the commentators could not stop laughing. This video of him is becoming quite viral on social media.
