On the opening day of the first Test at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram, an odd incident occurred between India and Bangladesh. When Shreyas Iyer, who was batting at 77, received a back-of-a-length delivery from Ebadot Hossain, the ball crashed onto the stumps but the bails stayed in place.
Vice-captain Cheteshwar Pujara and batsman Shreyas Iyer shared a 149-run fifth-wicket stand after the visitors were reduced to 112 for 4 at that point. Iyer was dropped behind the stumps by Bangladesh wicketkeeper Nurul Hasan before he had even hit his fifty-first run. Later, when he attempted a big shot off all-rounder Mehidy Hasan Miraz, he was dropped once more by pacer Ebadot Hossain.
Aakash Chopra, a former Indian hitter, thinks that rather than waiting for the bail to entirely fall, batsmen should be dismissed if the ball makes contact with the stumps and the bails light up. The bail must entirely drop in order for a batter to be bowled, according to the current rule.
Aakash Chopra took to the social media platform Twitter to express displeasure with the rule. and wrote, “Zing Bails are a bit of a joke… Honestly…if it lights up, it should be OUT.”

Shreyas Iyer, an Indian hitter, eventually ran out of chances and was out for 86. On the final ball of the eighth over of Day 2 of the match, Bangladesh pacer Ebadot Hossain bowled him with a stunning delivery that straightened just enough to get past Iyer’s defense and take the off-stump.

Contemporary bails are considerably heavier than older wooden bails. The ball has frequently struck the stumps without bailing out. David Warner, an Australian batsman, has played in both Test matches and ODIs. Other batters who have profited from this regulation include Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Joe Root, Dimuth Karunaratne, Quinton de Kock, and Virat Kohli.
