Summary of the match between Bangladesh and Pakistan:

Ban vs Pak, 2nd Test

Following the total, Shadman Islam and Mahmudul Hasan Joy opened the innings for Bangladesh. However, they didn't provide the start that the team expected from them as Sajid Khan removed both the openers for 0 and 3.

Then Najmul Hossain Shanto played decent in the middle for his team but didn't get enough support from the other end. Monimul Haque, Mushfiqur Rahim and Liton Das have been sent back by Hasan Ali and Sajid Khan for cheap numbers.

Then Najmul Hossain Shanto also returned to the pavilion for 30 runs. The lower-order batters of Bangladesh didn't perform up to the expectations of the fans and warmed the bench with three zeros each.

Shakib Al Hasan is currently playing with the last batsman Ebadot Hossain, as the left-hander remains unbeaten on 23 runs. Shakib Al Hasan will be the only hope for Bangladesh in the upcoming day. However, after back to back wickets of the hosts, the skipper of Pakistan, Babar Azam took the ball and bowled an over for his team.
