None of the Bangladeshi players could score 50 runs in the second innings while only Mohammad Mithun scored 63 runs with seven boundaries in the first innings.
Bangladeshi skipper Mominul Haque also couldn’t complete his fifty earlier today despite having played nicely with five boundaries when Shaheen Afridi trapped Ibw on 41 when play resumed on Day 4 of the first Test versus Pakistan at Rawalpindi.
The second Test would be played in Karachi from April 5 to 9 after a two-month break.
