    Pakistan reach 161/2 on a rain-shortened Day 1 of the 2nd Test against Bangladesh

    With 1-0 down in the two-match Test series but boosted by the return of star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan, Bangladesh will look to restore parity when they face Pakistan in Dhaka on Saturday.

    Overview

    Bangladesh v Pakistan, second Test
    Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium, Mirpur
    December 4-8, 10:00 am local

    Pakistan are in the second spot on the ICC World Test Championship standings, while Bangladesh are languishing at the bottom. A win in the second Test will not only help them save face but also catapult them in the middle of the table.

    The hosts will be happier with the return of Shakib as it fortifies both their batting and bowling departments. Considering their poor showing with the bat in the first Test, it will be an added advantage. Taskin Ahmed will inject some pace in a bowling attack bolstered by spin.

    On the other hand, Pakistan will be confident about their batting strength. They have been a well-balanced team, buoyed with the form of their openers and their bowlers, which has helped them gain crucial points in the new WTC23 cycle. With momentum on their side, they will be looking to consolidate their position on the WTC table before their next Test assignment.

    Remember the last time

    Batting first in Chattogram, Bangladesh put up a decent first-inning total of 330 and managed to get a handy 44-run lead after bowling out Pakistan for 286. But the visitors turned things around in the second innings with a wonderful display of bowling led by Shaheen Afridi. The young bowler rattled the Bangladesh top order and strangled the run flow along with Sajid Khan and Hasan Ali. Despite fighting knocks from Liton Das (59) and Yasir Ali (36), Bangladesh were bowled out for 157, with Pakistan needing just 202 runs for victory and 1.5 days of play left.

    Their openers gave them the right start with both Abid Ali (91) and Abdullah Shafique (73) getting their fifties and putting up a 151-run stand. The wickets came too late for Bangladesh as Azhar Ali (24*) and Babar Azam (13*) led them to a comprehensive eight-wicket victory to go 1-0 up in the series.

    What they said

    Mominul Haque (Bangladesh captain): "The most important thing in the Test match is the first hour, regardless of who is batting. If we can start well, things will be easier. Our strength is batting, so if we can bat for five or six sessions, we can certainly be in the game. We are going out there to win the Test."

    Team batting first has a huge advantage

    This pitch is a minefield on 4th innings. England and Australia have lost here when Bangladesh batted first.

    In what sense is Zahid a better option in Tests than Nauman? Their FC record speaks for itself. One is excellent, other is pretty rubbish.

    Shakib is a left hander. It’s not possible for him to get you unless the ball Is aimed at leg stump . This is like cricket 101

    Yes one thing I have learned is to stop believing in the hype of youngsters. The batting performances for a period of time will speak for itself.

    No confidence in Babars batting now. Pakistan will do well to reach 200 from here.

    Itís a shame when you think the best batsman in your team and one of the best in the world is a walking wicket in these conditions.

    Babar has to turn it around today. He has the platform and the ball is relatively hard for him to settle down.

    Come on.

    Is it bad of me to wish Azhar had been given caught behind at 0. Put us out of our misery.
    Awful man just retire.

    He does look like a walking wicket. Might as well hit out. Don't get why he's going back on every ball.

    Never came across a top order batsman with such a horrible technique.

    Babar looking really good but now as match is delayed by the rain he will probably get out in 1st or 2nd over when the play resumes.
