Pakistan lose the initiative
Pakistan Under-19s squandered a commanding overnight position, losing nine wickets for 110 runs on the third day of the one-off Test in Karachi
Bangladesh U-19 343 and 58 for 3 (Mithun 30*) lead Pakistan U-19 328 (Amin 112, Shehzad 104, Hossain 3-70) by 73 runs
Pakistan Under-19s squandered a commanding overnight position, losing nine wickets for 110 runs on the third day of the one-off Test in Karachi to allow Bangladesh a chance of salvaging a draw after taking an unlikely first-innings lead of 15. At the close, they were 58 for 3, a lead of 73.
Pakistan lost Ahmed Shahzad early on - he added four to his overnight 100 - and Umar Amin, who also failed to capitalise on his hundred the day before, followed soon after. Bangladesh kept up the pressure by rotating their bowlers - they used eight in the day - with slingy fast bowler Rubel Hossain the most successful, picking up 3 for 70. Subashis Roy, Suhrawardi Shuvo and Mahmudul Hasan chipped in with two wickets each.
Pakistan made good inroads in the final session, taking three wickets to leave Bangladesh needing to bat well on the last day if they are to force a draw
