However, the experienced, Mushfiqur Rahim once again paired up with Mohammed Mithun to lift the souls in Bangladesh dugout. They both added a fantastic 144-run partnership to bring Bangladesh to a commanding position.

Despite the stage was set, Bangladesh couldn’t quite carry on with the flow thus giving a moderate 240-run chase for Pakistan. In reply, it was the repeat of the first innings, as Bangladesh struck three quick wickets with the new ball.

However, Imam Ul Haq and Shoaib Malik tried their best to balance the ship. Meanwhile, a tremendous catch by Mortaza sent Malik and the team never looked like chasing the total. In the end, it can get tagged as a one-sided affair.
