Pakistan sets Bangladesh target of 550

Misbah declares second innings on 195/6 before Bangladesh ends Day 3 of the final Test on 63/1
68035

Bangladesh was set a target of 550 runs to win the second and final Test in Mirpur after Pakistan declared its second innings at 195 for 6 on the third day on Friday (May 8).

The home side started aggressively in pursuit of the target courtesy Tamim Iqbal and Imrul Kayes, who added 48, before Yasir Shah, the leg-spinner, gave Pakistan a boost just before stumps. Kayes, who made 16, was drawn forward and beaten in the drive as the ball spun back in to crash into the stumps.

Mominul Haque smashed three successful boundaries off Wahab Riaz before Iqbal saw off the last over, with Bangladesh ending the day at 63 for 1, still needing another 487 runs to win the Test with two full days to play.

On a pitch that showed signs of deterioration, Pakistan chose not to enforce the follow-on despite gaining a first-innings lead of 354 runs. Misbah-ul-Haq led the charge with a 72-ball 82 before closing the innings soon after his dismissal in the post-tea session. Younis Khan fell for a 55-ball 39, caught and bowled by Taijul Islam, before Asad Shafiq was bowled by Shuvagata Hom for 25.

Mohammad Hafeez had been dismissed before lunch off the fourth ball of the innings, caught behind off Mohammad Shahid. Shahid struck again soon after resumption when he removed Sami Aslam, before Azhar Ali, a double-centurion in the first innings, became Soumya Sarkar’s first Test victim after making 25.

Earlier in the day, Bangladesh, who resumed at the overnight score of 107 for 5, was bowled out for 203 in its first innings shortly before lunch. Shakib Al Hasan, who remained unbeaten on a defiant 89 off 91 balls, stood out.

Riaz claimed the wickets of Sarkar and Hom to end with 3 for 73. Riaz peppered Sarkar with a barrage of short balls before a length ball had him picking out Azhar at short cover. Off the first ball of his next over, he had Hom popping one to gully, and Bangladesh were reduced to 119 for 7.

Taijul came in and scored a 22-ball 15, providing Shakib with some support in a 21-run stand for the eighth wicket. However, in his attempt to attack, Taijul tried a swipe, missed and had his stumps clattered by Hafeez.

Shahid was the new man in, and with Shahadat Hossain absent – a knee injury picked up on the first day ruling him out for up to six months – Bangladesh were effectively down to their last wicket. Shakib took charge and attacked, scoring 62 in a 63-run stand. His knock included 14 fours and two sixes, while at the other end, Shahid prodded away at 20 deliveries, scoring 1. The innings ended when Shahid popped Yasir to silly point, giving him his third wicket.
