After Early Fall Bangladesh Fought Back Strongly in the First Session

0

Second day of the Chittagong test showed a prominent prospect to Bangladeshi supporters to get an auspicious result in this test match. But England fought back hard in this morning to put Bangladesh on back foot by taking 45 runs lead.

Shakib al Hasan lost his wicket on the second ball of the day. No batsman in the lower order was unable to score any decent run and so Bangladesh got restricted within 248 runs.

Certainly the early morning was not favorable for Bangladesh but they tried to come back hard. Miraz took his seventh wicket of the match by sending Captain Cook to the pavilion. On the very next over, Shakib trapped Root and forced England to stumble for the second time in this inning. Bangladesh certainly returned to the match on the ball just before Lunch as Duckett got caught at the short leg by a phenomenal delivery from Shakib.

England went to Lunch on 28 runs. Meanwhile, Shakib became the first Bangladeshi to take 150 wickets in test. He has taken 151 wickets so far.
