CRICDOT DESK : Bangladesh testing its own medicine as Bangladesh needed 25 runs to avoid follow-on. There were 3 wickets in hand. Bangladesh finished the fourth day’s play with 6 runs for 6 wickets. Sajid Khan picked up Taizul Islam (0) in the second over of the fifth and final day’s play today. Shahin Afridi returned Khaled Ahmed (0) in the next over. Then Sajid picked up Shakib (33) as the last wicket. Bangladesh all out for 6 runs. Pakistan has decided to follow Bangladesh. Bangladesh is still 213 runs behind Pakistan’s first innings.
In the first innings, Bangladesh started batting in response to Pakistan’s 300 runs. Mahmudul Hasan Joyer made his debut as the 99th cricketer of Bangladesh with Dhaka Test. But he could not paint his debut match. Mahmudul Hasan batted and bowled only 6 balls. In Sajid’s delivery, Babar Azam got out on the slip without a run. This is the 26th time that Bangladesh have been bowled out for zero in their debut.
From the start, Sadman was uneasy about Pakistan’s bowling attack. Sajid Khan’s ball came with an unreasonable shot. The opener made 3 off 26 balls before being caught by Hasan Ali. After one over, captain Mominul got a thorn in the suicide run out. Hasan Ali rang the farewell bell of Muminul who scored one run in direct throw.
Mushfiqur survived an umpires call a ball before Sajid Khan. The best batsman of the Tiger team lost his life in the next ball. He was caught by Fawad Alam in the short mid wicket after playing a slog sweep with Sajid’s ball.
Shant could have been the victim of Noman Ali in the 14th over. Mohammad Rizwan took a great catch in his over. Going to check the calm review, the umpire declared ‘no’ ball at the beginning. Survive the calm. There was no need to check whether the ball hit the bat as it was no ball.
Liton did not want to be on the wicket. Sajid also picked up Liton Das who played well in the first Test. Going to beat Sajid, Liton was caught and bowled for 6 runs. In the end, he did not stay calm. He returned to the toilet after falling victim to LB. Took reviews, but no profit. Shant went back for 30 runs. Mehdi Hasan Miraj defeated Sajid Khan by 61 runs. This batsman could not make any run by playing 6 balls. Bangladesh finished the fourth day with 8 runs.
The first three days of the Dhaka Test were in the grip of rain. Only 63.2 overs were played at the end of the third day due to rain. 56 overs were played on the first day. Only 6.2 overs were played on the second day. The cricketers could not come on the field on the third day.
On the fourth day, right-arm pacer Ebadat took the wicket with the tenth ball of the day. He made a catch behind the wicket and sent the experienced batsman Azhar Ali to the dressing room. Pak opener returned to the dressing room for 57 runs. His 123-run partnership was broken out.
Khaled Ahmed returned Babar Azam to the dressing room after scoring 198 runs. The wicket will undoubtedly be memorable for him. After making his debut in 2016, irregular fast bowler Khaled came in his third Test and got the first wicket. He also took his first wicket by returning one of the world’s leading batsmen in Test cricket. The inside ball was slightly bent. After getting on the pad, the umpire raised his finger and decided to get out. Babar took the review. It didn’t work. Babar returned to the dressing room for 7 runs. In his 126-ball innings, there were four 9s and six sixes.
In the 63rd over, the last ball of Ebadat touched the bat of Fawad Alam in Liton’s gloves. However, the fielders of Bangladesh did not understand. Bangladesh did not get his wicket as he did not appeal. Fawad Alam survived.
Fawad could not play Ebadat Hossain’s off-stump delivery properly. The ball goes to the side of the bat in the keeper’s gloves. No application was made. After a while Ultra AJ was seen in the TV replay, the ball felt light at bat. So Fawad survived by 12 runs.
Bangladesh took the second new ball after the end of 60 overs. Ebadat started attacking with new balls. 19.4 overs were played in the first session. Pakistan scored 54 runs for 2 wickets.
Bangladesh started well by returning two batsmen in a row. Mohammad Rizwan and Fawad Alam put up resistance for the fifth wicket. In the 94th over, Rizwan completed the fifth with a single off Taizul. He scored a half-century off four fours and one six.
After Rizwan, Pakistan completed 300 in Fawad’s fifty. After that the visiting team announced the innings. On the fourth day, Pakistan added 112 runs for the loss of 2 wickets. Babar scored maximum 6 runs. Rizwan is unbeaten on 53 and Fawad on 50.
