DHAKA: Bangladesh Captian Shaikb Al Hasan, after winning the toss decided to bat first, after steady start, Tamim Iqbal and Mushifqur Rahim centuries paved the way for Bengal Tigers.
Pakistan, under the command of their new Captain Azhar Ali, looked bit edgy in the bowling and fielding departments. One short of regular bowler, Pakistan’s left-arm fast bowling attack could not cause trouble in the earlier phase of Bangladesh innings. Dosra master Saeed Ajmal, who made his come back in the side after clearing his illegal bowling action, does not seemed much effective as he was before, his quota of 10 overs costs 74 runs.
Partisanship of 171 runs between Tamim and Mushifqur for the third wicket, was the sight to watch, both players played tremendous stroke all around the ground.
