On Day 2 of the second Test against Bangladesh in Chittagong, Australian cricketer Peter Handscomb went through a lot. He fought the immense heat and faced fatigue at times. In such boiling heat and humid conditions, Handscomb scored an unbeaten 69 off 113 balls and lost an unbelievable 4.5 kilograms in just two and a half hour.
He had to take several breaks as he grappled in the extreme conditions. Austraila needs to win the second test in order to level the series. Bangladesh has scored 305, so Handscomb had to bat for more than two hours alongside David Warner to keep the match under their control. During the match, he fell on his knees several times, because of the fatigue.
By the end of the day, Handscomb was so exhausted that was not being to stand on his feet. The doctors raced to the batsman in the midst of the match with drinks and placed a wet cloth around his neck and head to help him recover from the fatigue.
