4.1

Nazmul Hossain to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, gets a wicket off his first ball in Test cricket in seven years, the faintest of nicks to the keeper, good length outside off, just a hint of away movement, Hafeez got forward and played at it and edged it to the keeper

Mohammad Hafeez c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Nazmul Hossain 14 (22m 17b 3x4 0x6) SR: 82.35

Pakistan 23/1   Taufeeq Umar 6* (11b 1x4)   Nazmul Hossain 0.1-0-0-1

51.4

Shakib Al Hasan to Azhar Ali, OUT, a beauty from the Bangladeshi Superman! Shakib gets the runs, Shakib gets the wickets. Tossed up from wide of the stumps, it drifts in towards middle and off and spins away sharply. Azhar was prodding forward in hope, but he wasn't to the pitch and the ball took a thid outside edge into Rahim's gloves. Yet another 50+ sub-100 effort for Azhar Ali. Is he Pakistan's Shane Watson?

Azhar Ali c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Shakib Al Hasan 57 (205m 147b 7x4 0x6) SR: 38.77

Pakistan 150/2   Taufeeq Umar 71* (153b 9x4)   Shakib Al Hasan 12.4-4-17-1

83.3

Nazmul Hossain to Taufeeq Umar, OUT, edged, and taken! Well bowled Nazmul, he's worked Umar over with his relentlessness. A spark of excellence this from Bangladesh. Pitched well up on middle and off, once again lands on the threadwork and angles across sharply. Umar was forward and had to play at it. He got a low outside edge that shot across towards second slip, who held on at shin height. Very well taken.

Taufeeq Umar c Shahriar Nafees b Nazmul Hossain 130 (361m 256b 16x4 0x6) SR: 50.78

Pakistan 245/3   Younis Khan 28* (92b 1x4)   Nazmul Hossain 14.3-2-39-2

97.2

Elias Sunny to Younis Khan, OUT, thin edge and Sunny gets his man! Nice delivery there, tossed up outside off, draws Younis forward to defend, perhaps a bit more bounce than he expected, Mushfiqur juggles and takes the catch

Younis Khan c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Elias Sunny 49 (205m 122b 4x4 0x6) SR: 40.16

Pakistan 293/4   Misbah-ul-Haq 26* (54b 4x4)   Elias Sunny 8.2-0-36-1

120.1

Shakib Al Hasan to Misbah-ul-Haq, OUT, some relief for Bangladesh! Misbah was shaping for a powerful sweep, he tried to fetch that from around the off stump, the ball flew off the top edge of the bat and Mahmudullah Riyad, who's been alert all morning, took it easily

Misbah-ul-Haq c Mahmudullah b Shakib Al Hasan 70 (161m 123b 11x4 0x6) SR: 56.91

Pakistan 359/5   Asad Shafiq 22* (68b 3x4)   Shakib Al Hasan 23.1-6-38-2

129.3

Robiul Islam to Asad Shafiq, OUT, reward for Robiul! He bowls a delivery similar to the previous one, aims for a fuller length and gets it to swing in, Shafiq tries to whip it away but fails to cover the movement, hit on the pads pretty much in line with the leg stump

Asad Shafiq lbw b Robiul Islam 42 (123m 101b 5x4 0x6) SR: 41.58

Pakistan 389/6   Adnan Akmal 9* (23b 1x4)   Robiul Islam 19.3-3-66-1

140.1

Shakib Al Hasan to Abdur Rehman, OUT, this one sticks! Good reflexes from Mahmudullah, Rehman tries to slash it wide of slip down to third man, rocks back, bit of extra bounce and the ball flies off the top edge and Mahmudullah cups it to his left, makes up for the catch he spilled earlier in the opening session

Abdur Rehman c Mahmudullah b Shakib Al Hasan 24 (37m 30b 5x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

Pakistan 430/7   Adnan Akmal 26* (57b 3x4)   Shakib Al Hasan 33.1-7-60-3

152.2

Shakib Al Hasan to Umar Gul, OUT, Gul goes for the big swing, top-edges it towards mid-on, the ball swirls high, Gul was certain that skier was going to be taken, turns out he's right as it is safely pouched, relief for Shakib, Mushfiqur sports a huge grin

Umar Gul c Elias Sunny b Shakib Al Hasan 11 (46m 31b 1x4 0x6) SR: 35.48

Pakistan 464/8   Adnan Akmal 48* (99b 6x4)   Shakib Al Hasan 39.2-7-80-4

152.5

Shakib Al Hasan to Saeed Ajmal, OUT, Shakib gets two in the over, and that's five in the innings, Ajmal looking for the sweep, gets a bottom-edge onto the stumps, what a match this is for Shakib, his highest score and then a five-for

Saeed Ajmal b Shakib Al Hasan 0 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 465/9   Adnan Akmal 49* (100b 6x4)   Shakib Al Hasan 39.5-7-81-5

154.5

Shakib Al Hasan to Adnan Akmal, OUT, Pakistan are finally dismissed and Shakib takes six! Floated wide of the leg stump, Adnan made room and chipped down the track, the ball kept low and beat the bat, he didn't bother trying to make his ground, Mushfiqur tried whipping off the bails but at first attempt failed to break the stumps, did it in the second attempt though! They can all afford a laugh

Adnan Akmal st †Mushfiqur Rahim b Shakib Al Hasan 53 (132m 108b 7x4 0x6) SR: 49.07

Pakistan 470/10   Aizaz Cheema 1* (4b)   Shakib Al Hasan 40.5-7-82-6
