Bangladesh openers, Tamim Iqbal and Soumya Sarkar have given their team a steady start during their chase of 251 in the third One-Day International (ODI) at Dhaka. Pakistan started the bowling with the off-spin of Mohammad Hafeez, whose action has been cleared by International Cricket Council (ICC). Umar Gul partnered him on the other end.
