BALL BY BALL
A A Hossain
Bangladesh were expected to come harder today but they have been outclassed by Pakistan in all departments. After winning the toss, the visitors opted to bat first and stumbled early on, losing wickets at regular intervals and not managing to exert pressure on the bowlers. Another concerted effort from Pakistan bowlers never really allowed the batsmen to tee off at any stage of the game and apart from the lone-ranger Tamim Iqbal, nobody got quickfire runs which meant when Pakistan came out to bat, they didn't have that scoreboard pressure. Babar Azam seldom misfires and he showed his class again today with a nimble-footed measured half-century and he was complemented marvellously by the seasoned campaigner Mohammad Hafeez, who scored a masterclass innings, doing what Shoaib Malik did yesterday.
