BAN 260, 45/1 (22.0 Ovs) CRR: 2.05
Stumps, Day 2: Would have been a big advantage for Bangladesh to go no loss into Day 3, had it not been for that brain-fade moment from Soumya Sarkar in the penultimate over of the day. But I would say, they are well on top in this Test, effectively at 88 for 1. The wicket is breaking rapidly and making life more difficult for the batsmen to go on to score a big knock. Earlier in the day, Bangladesh wrapped up the visitors for 217. Ninth wicket partnership did give them a breather, else they would have been well short of even the 200 mark. Shakib Al Hasan went on to achieve a unique record by becoming the fourth bowler to pick a five-wicket haul against nine Test playing nations. That’s about it for today.
