Regarding the Pakistan-Bangladesh game, the team led by Babar Azam currently has the upper hand in Mirpur. Due to several rain breaks, Pakistan declared its first innings at 300/4.
They defeated Bangladesh for 87 runs in the first innings and forced a replacement. Bangladesh are 96/4 after 32.2 overs in the second innings. The home side are still 117 runs behind. Pakistan will try to take the remaining six wickets and claim a win at Mirpur.There are at least 56 overs left in the current friendly between Bangladesh and Pakistan.
Pakistani fans will hope the rain gods don't stop the game and their team do the job as they will lose some valuable ICC World Test Championship points if the game ends in a draw.
Pakistan currently ranks second overall in the ICC World Test Championship. A win at Mirpur today could help Babar Azam's men consolidate their place in the top two.
