Bangladesh ended up their second innings on 157 and set a target of 202 for Pakistan in the Chattogram Test on Monday at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium.

Liton Das hit 59 and Yasir Ali 36 for the hosts in the second innings. Yasir was doing well before getting a nasty blow on his head off Shaheen Afridi’s bouncer that stayed low.

The batter had to leave the field for a hospital and go for a quick scan that showed no worrying sign. To replace Yasir, Bangladesh added Nurul Hasan Sohan to the squad as a concussion substitute.

After Yasir left the field, Mehidy Hasan came in to bat and posted 11 while Nurul, the substitute, scored 15 off 33 balls.

Bangladesh had a lead of 44 runs in the first innings, in total, they got a lead of 202 runs.

Shaheen bagged five wickets conceding 32 runs in the second innings of Bangladesh. In the first innings, it was Hassan Ali, Shaheen’s bowling partner, who did the same.

In the first innings of the match, Bangladesh scored 330 riding on the maiden hundred of Liton and 91 of Mushfiqur Rahim. In reply, Pakistan scored 286 thanks to Abid Ali’s 133.
