The first session of the day was a nightmare for Bangladesh. Bangladesh had to lose four wickets. 69 runs were scored in 26 overs. However, in the second session, two batsmen Liton Das and Mushfiqur Rahim are doing the job of repairing the innings well.

However, the number of runs on the scoreboard before the lunch break was just right. But the number of wickets is huge. At the end of the first session, Bangladesh scored 79 runs. 4 wickets were lost. Two openers Saif Hasan, Sadman Islam, one-downer Nazmul Hossain Shant, and two-down Muminul Haque were out.
On the first day, Pakistani spinner Sajid Khan is spinning the ball like a latim on the wicket of Chittagong. The right-handed off-break bowler has also picked up success with his magic spin. But they were able to make a pair of only 15 runs. Muminul returned with 6 runs off 19 balls.
Sajid Khan’s first ball of the 17th over of the innings was caught by Mohammad Rizwan. If the umpire is not out, Pakistan will take the review. It can be seen that Muminul Haque put the ball on the edge of the bat. Nazmul Hossain Shant gave the wicket in the next over. Sajid Khan caught the point while playing the ball of Pakistan’s medium pacer Fahim Ashraf. The TV umpire gave out after watching the replay.
Chittagong Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium wicket batting friendly. But wickets in front of two Pakistani fast bowlers Shaheen Shah Afridi and Hasan Ali do not matter. They are capable of making a storm on any wicket. Inswing, outswing, cutter-slower, they can do a good job of spreading panic among the opponent’s batsmen.

Shahin Shah Afridi’s ball was handed over to Abid Ali. Then another opener Sadman Islam fell victim to Hasan Ali’s lbw for 33 runs. 14 runs came from the bat of the two openers.
