Wicketkeeper-batsman Saha scored his second Test century to entertain a raucous home crowd, including seven fours and two sixes, helping India maintain an impressive run rate of more than four.
Talking about those two incidents in the press conference, Saha revealed. On the second occasion, I told him that impact might outside off. This is unlike the audience at a cinema all for, let's say, a Salman Khan movie where you KNOW there will be punches, bullets, song and dance.
India took further control of the one-off Test against Bangladesh as pacers Umesh Yadav and Ishant Sharma tore through the top order on Saturday.
The visitors, who resumed the day on 1-41 in response to India's first innings score of 6-687 declared, still trail India by 562 runs. His ton came with a six down the ground off Bangladesh's most successful bowler Taijul (3/156). TeamIndia's fighter and 2011 World Cup man-of-the-series victor, Yuvraj Singh congratulated him saying, "It is incredible, and he'll keep raising the bar to the next level everytime he goes to bat captain". Another day, another game, but the same intensity, now synonymous with the run-machine, as Kohli took the Bangladesh bowling by the scruff of the neck.
He had a brief chat with Saha before going for the review. After consulting with Shakib, Mahmudullah chose to challenge the umpire's decision but to no avail as the ball tracker suggested the ball would have clipped the stumps anyway.
But unfortunately, Taijul Islam gets the big wicket of Virat Kohli at the start of the 126th over, and that is the end of magnificent innings by the Indian skipper.
Just when the Bangladesh bowlers would have heaved a sigh of relief, Jadeja walked in to join Saha. He chooses his variation of the sweep shot depending on the line and length: a really full ball within the stumps is paddled fine, a slightly shorter ball is conventionally swept towards long leg, and he picks deliveries from outside off to go over the midwicket fielder.
The grey area was stamped out for Kohli on Friday when he successfully used DRS to overturn the decision that would have stopped him from achieving the historic double ton.
His first one came against the West Indies in July.
"The other one I thought I was plumb in front, I was falling back when I got hit and that's why the umpire couldn't give it not out either because I wasn't standing there, I was falling behind". But, once again, he put the team ahead and this is one of the reasons why he is successful.
Even when the Vijay-Pujara combine is not putting up the big numbers, they make significant small contributions.
