BAN vs PAK Match Preview Pakistan Tour of Bangladesh 1st Test:

Pakistan’s tour of Bangladesh now moves on to the longest format, after the completion of the T20I series. The visitors whitewashed the hosts in the 3-match T20I series and will now aim to add a few more feathers to their cap before bidding goodbye to the country.

The 2-match Test series begins from the 26th of November at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium. The second Test will be played at Shere Bangla National Stadium from the 4th of December.

Things haven’t gone well for the Bangladeshis. After coming winless from the T20 World Cup, their streak became even longer against Pakistan. However, they will hope for a fresh start in this different format.

They have been hit with multiple injuries, the likes of Tamim Iqbal, Taskin Ahmed and Shoriful Islam are yet to recover. Their main man Shakib Al Hasan, who missed the whole T20I series due to a hamstring injury, is also subject to fitness in the 1st Test.

In their absence, a lot will rely on experienced campaigners Mominul Haque and Mushfiqur Rahim. Batsman Mahmudul Hasan Joy and pacer Rejaur Rahman Raja have received their maiden call-ups to the Test squad. The chief selector believes the hosts will compete fearlessly against the formidable Pakistani side.

On the other hand, Pakistan has recalled opener Imam-ul-Haq and off-spinner Bilal Asif into the Test squad. Experienced leg-spinner Yasir Shah is still recovering from a thumb injury, which has forced him to sit out of this series. The side will be led by the usual skipper Babar Azam, who looked a bit out of touch in the T20I series.

Shaheen Afridi, Hasan Ali, Naseem Shah, and Mohammad Abbas form the lethal pace department of the side. Azhar Ali, Mohammad Rizwan, and Fawad Alam are some of the notable names in the batting section. Overall, they have a pretty healthy side and would go into the game as favourites.

Pakistan is currently placed 5th on the ICC Men’s Test rankings while Bangladesh is placed 9th on the table. The two teams have met a total of 11 times in this format, where Pakistan won 10 of those games while the remaining one ended in a draw. When they last met in this format during February 2020, Pakistan hunted down the Bangladeshi team one-sided by an innings and 44 runs.
