The last two sessions at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong, the Bangladesh team did not spend any misfortune! After being bowled out for 330 in the first innings, the Bangladeshi bowlers had to give up. Despite bowling two sessions, the Taizul-Ebadatars could not take a single wicket for Pakistan. Proponents of her case have been working to make the actual transcript of this statement available online.
That day was today and that morning. On this day, Bangladesh took only 5 balls to break the opening pair of Pakistan. Taizul came to bowl in the first over of the day and picked up Abdullah Shafiq as the fifth. Pakistan, who started the day with 145 runs without wickets, managed to add only one run earlier. Taizul hit again with the next ball. Azhar Ali of Pakistan, who came down to bat at number three, got the ‘golden duck’. Pakistan were bowled out for 26 in the first innings on the left-arm spin of Taizul.
After giving a sweet morning gift to Bangladesh, Taizul also made the afternoon great. Bangladesh left-arm spinner took 3 wickets in the first session and 4 in the second session. He took 6 wickets in this innings with 118 runs in all. Fighting with the ball yesterday, Bangladesh also took a 44-run lead in the first innings.
While the Bangladesh bowlers were swinging the stick in Pakistan’s innings, Abid Ali, who was unbeaten on 93 the day before, continued to move towards the century in the opposite direction. Abid Ali completed his fourth Test century in the 8th over after a pair of injuries to Taizul and captain Babar Azam. It was Taizul’s over, Abid Ali completed his century with 2 runs in the first ball at deep midwicket.
Although Abid Ali scored a century, his partnership with Babar was not very big. Off-spinner Mehedi Hasan Miraj broke the 23-run partnership off 8 balls. He has returned the Pakistan captain. Babar made 10 runs off 46 balls before being dismissed. With Abid Ali Fawad Alam. Fawad also did not last long. Taizul returned him. Abid teamed up with Mohammad Rizwan. They didn’t let any more wickets fall before the lunch break. Pakistan went to the lunch break with 203 runs for 4 wickets.
Ibadat ignited after the lunch break. After Rizwan was caught in the lbw trap, he bowled Sajid Khan. However, Taizul is the best bowler of Bangladesh in this session too. Along with Abid Ali who scored a century, he picked up two more Ali Hasan and Noman and Fahim Ashraf. Abid Ali made 133 off 262 balls before being dismissed. He hit 12 fours and two sixes in the 48.18 strike rate innings.
