OUT! Sami Aslam tried to chip one over the mid-wicket fence but found the fielder in the deep. Pakistan’s most experienced batsman Younis Khan is the new batsman and he will look to build a solid partnership with the well set batsman, Azhar Ali. Bangladesh will be delighted to pick up this wicket.

Drinks: The last half an hour hasn’t been good for Bangladesh and its getting worse. Azhar Ali gets a lucky break. He was caught in the slips. But replays showed Mohammad Shahid’s foot was on the line and it was declared as NO BALL. Unlucky for Bangladesh. Also It seems Bangladesh have missed a trick by not choosing an extra pacer on this greenish wicket. Currently Shahid is their only front-line pace in the field. Shahadat Hossain is yet to come back.

Sami Aslam 2 (3), Azhar Ali 1 (5)

OUT! First wicket of the day for Bangladesh. Mohammad Hafeez departs, after being caught behind in the bowling of Mohammad Shahid. What a ball it was! A Short of a length delivery angling into the right-hander, the ball just left the batsman after pitching and Hafeez couldn’t control it.

OUT: Mohammad Hafeez c Rahim b Mohammad Shahid 8(16)

Mohammad Hafeez 6 (5), Sami Aslam 0 (0)

Well, well, well. A very eventful first over. Shahadat Hossain who has replaced Rubel Hossian in the playing eleven has been given the first over. But after bowling just two balls he has collapsed in his follow through and tumbles on his knee. The physio comes out and Shahadat is going of the the field. Soumya Sarkar completes the over.


Bangladesh win the toss and decide to bowl first.

Teams:

Bangladesh: Mushfiqur Rahim(c & wk), Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Mominul Haque, Mahmudullah, Shakib Al Hasan, Soumya Sarkar, Shuvagata Hom, Taijul Islam, Shahadat Hossain, Mohammad Shahid

Pakistan: Misbah-ul-Haq(c), Mohammad Hafeez, Sami Aslam, Azhar Ali, Younis Khan, Asad Shafiq, Sarfraz Ahmed(wk), Wahab Riaz, Yasir Shah, Junaid Khan, Imran Khan

So both teams have made one change each. For Bangladesh Shahadat Hossain replaces Rubel Hossain. Pakistan on the other hand have brought in Imran Khan in place of  Zulfiqar Babar. The pitch has some grass, so pacers can get something out of it.
