Pakistan need 164 runs to beat Bangladesh in 1st Test

Pakistan needed 164 runs to win the first Test after reaching 38 for no loss at tea on the fourth day at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium here today.

Opener Abid Ali was batting on 20 with debutant Abdullah Shafique on 18 at the second break of the day.

Earlier, Pakistan fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi claimed 5-32 as Bangladesh were shot out for 157 in their second innings, setting a 202-run target for the visitors.

Bangladesh were bowled out for 330 in their first innings before gaining a 44-run lead, dismissing Pakistan for 286.

Liton Das, who struck his maiden century in the first innings, again top-scored for the side with 59.

Yasir Ali, who had to leave the ground after being struck on his helmet by a sharp bouncer of Shaeen Afridi, was on 36. His concussion sub Nurul Hasan Sohan made 15 and Mushfiqur Rahim scored 16.

Bangladesh began the fourth day on 39-4 at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium here today with a lead of just 83 runs.

Mushfiqur Rahim though struck a boundary in the first ball, he was dismissed in that over as he offered no shot against fast bowler Hasan Ali, who got the delivery jagged in.

Yasir who made just 4 in the first innings appeared to be in full control, dealing with pacers and spinners confidently and sometimes with disdain. He and Liton combined for a 47-run to bring the side back into the contest but the progress was stalled as he had to leave the ground.

Off Spinner Sajid Khan had Mehidy Hasan Miraz lbw for 11 with a delivery that spun sharply.

Liton Das meanwhile played confidently to bring up his 10th half-century off 83 balls, guiding an Afridi delivery to backward point for a single.

However as Bangladesh looked to be in control, Sohan played a wretched shot off Sajid Khan to be dismissed.

Afirdi then came up with fire and had Liton lbw with an inswinger to break the resistance of Bangladesh. Liton clobbered six boundaries for his 59 off 89.

Three balls later Afridi roughed up Abu Jayed Rahi with a snorter to bag his fourth five-for in Test cricket.

Sajid Khan who finished with his career-best 3-33, had Taijul stumped by the wicket-keeper to bring an end to Bangladesh's innings as the hosts lost the last three wickets in six balls for no run.
