Pakistan take driver’s seat as Bangladesh fail to break opening pair!

opening pair!

CRICDOT DESK : The first day of the Chittagong Test supposed to be in favour of Bangladesh, but things went wrong as the Tigers failed miserably on the second day both batting and bowling department. Bangladesh lost 6 wickets only  for 6 runs on the second day.

The Bangladesh team, who failed to bat on Saturday, could not do well in bowling either. Even after bowling two full sessions of three sessions a day, Pakistan could not break the opening partnership.
Abid Ali and Abdullah Shafiq’s impeccable batting helped the Pakistan cricket team score 145 runs without losing a wicket on the second day. Abid Ali and Abdullah Shafiq are unbeaten on 93 and 52 runs.

Bangladesh, who lost 4 wickets for 49 runs at the start of the first day on Friday, returned to the game with the responsible batting of Liton Das and Mushfiqur Rahim. They added 204 runs to the pair on Friday.
Batting on the second day on Saturday, Liton Kumar Das, who had scored the first century of his Test career the day before, fell into danger. Liton was dismissed after collecting only 1 run on the second day on Saturday. Earlier, Mushfiqur scored 208 runs for the fifth wicket. Before returning to the dressing room, Liton returned with 114 runs in 11 fours and one six.

No batsman was able to last long after batting on the morning of the second day after Liton was out. Yasir Ali returned with only 4 runs off 19 balls.

Mushfiqur Rahim, who was on his way to a century after scoring 72 runs on the previous day, returned with a regret of 9 runs. He went out on the nervous ninth. Before that Mushfiqur returned with 91 runs with the help of 11 fours.

After Mushfiqur’s dismissal, all-rounder Mehdi Hasan Miraj kept one side of the wicket at bay for some time. Taizul Islam, Abu Zayed Rahi and Ebadat Hossain could not give him a worthy company.

Miraj made 26 runs for the eighth wicket with Taizul and 26 runs for the ninth wicket with Abu Zayed Rahi. Ebadat Hossain got the golden call after batting. With his departure, Bangladesh’s innings stopped at 330 runs. Mehdi Hasan Miraj remained unbeaten on 37 off 6 balls with the help of 6 fours.

Short score

Bangladesh: 330/10 in 114.4 overs (Liton Das 114, Mushfiqur Rahim 91, Mehedi Hasan Miraj 36 *, Sadman Islam 14, Saif Hasan 14, Nazmul Hossain Shant 14, Taizul Islam 11, Muminul Haque 6; Hasan Ali 5/51 ).
