Pakistan will need 202 runs to win the second Test match as spinner Sajid Khan and pacer Shaheen Afridi stunned the Bangladeshi batting order to dismiss the hosts for 201 runs on Day 4.
The fourth day of the first Test match between Pakistan and Bangladesh resumed on a good note for the visitors on Monday when fast bowler Hassan Ali provided the Men in Green an early breakthrough followed by Sajid Khan’s dismissal of Mehidy Hasan.
Bangladesh, batting to survive and give Pakistan a fighting total, were five wickets down before they reached three figures on the scoreboard.
Earlier, Afridi in a video message, said that he wants to give his hundred per cent and he credited his fellow pacer Hassan Ali that he is enjoying the bowling spells with him. He said that we want to give our best to achieve the best for the national side.
Meanwhile, Pakistan is hopeful to defeat the hosts with Abid Ali and Abdullah Shafique’s exceptional opening partnership. The national side only need 93 runs to win the first Test on the fifth day of the match.
