Earlier, Bangladesh skipper, Mushfiqur Rahim won the toss and elected to bat first on a flat batting track at Khulna. Bangladesh had two debutantes in the form of Soumya Sarkar, Mohammad Shahid and Sami Aslam. Pakistan, on the other hand, dropped their start leg-spinner, Saeed Ajmal.

Bangladesh openers, Tamim and Imrul were off to a slow start and were a bit shaky as well as the third ball of the game from Junaid Khan was a close call for a leg-before. Although initially turned down, Misbah-ul-Haq went upstairs for a review as the DRS showed the ball was striking outside off and was missing the stumps, thus the decision being grounded with the umpire. Live Updates: Bangladesh vs Pakistan 2015, 1st Test at Khulna, Day 1

The openers continued to bat sensibly and slow following the early call as the bowlers in the form of Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Hafeez, Zulfiqar Babar and Yasir Shah continued to bowl in good line and length. The first boundary of the innings came in the ninth over off Junaid who was pulled by Imrul.

Both the openers were able to bat almost throughout the session and also brought up the opening 50-run stand in 158 deliveries as Tamim contributed 25, while Imrul contributed 26 in the stand. However, just when this pair seemed to be going strong, leg-spinner Yasir delivered the first break-through for Pakistan after Tamim was caught by Azhar Ali at short leg. There was a close concern for a no-ball as well, but was fractionally saved and the decision stayed with Pakistan, as the session ended with Bangladesh on 60 for the loss of a wicket.

Brief scores:

Bangladesh 60 for 1 (Imrul Kayes 35*, Tamim Iqbal 25; Yasir Shah 1 for 8, Mohammad Hafeez 0 for 6) vs Pakistan.
