Cricket fans can watch live online as Pakistan and Bangladesh move into Day Two of their First Test Match, to see if Bangladesh — who won the toss and elected to bat first — can build on their Day One total of 236/4 highlighted by a solid 80 from Mominul Haque, who topped a half-century for the 10th straight Test match.
To find out how and when to watch Day Two of the Pakistan vs. Bangladesh First Test live online from Sheikh Abu Naser Stadium in Khulna, see the information at the bottom of this article.
And for those who missed Day One, a video highlight package of the most exciting cricket action from the Test Match can be viewed on this page, above.
Just 23 years old, Haque finds himself tied with Indian legend Sachin Tendulkar and England’s John Edrich, just two consecutive Test 50s short of the record 12 held by South Africa’s A.B. de Villiers.
But when the day was done, Haque was not celebrating his accomplishment, but bemoaning what he admitted was a moment of poor concentration when he was caught leg before wicket on the fifth ball of the 89th over.
With 90 overs scheduled for the day’s play, the umpires waved off the final ball and pulled up stumps.
“I played that ball quite poorly,” the youngster from the seaside tourist town of Cox’s Bazar said later, quoted by the ESPN Cricinfo site. “Maybe I was a bit casual. Sometimes the mind wanders when you are out in the middle for a long time. I think I got out because I had a lapse in concentration. We would have been in a better position had I not been dismissed. But still I feel we are in a good position. A wicket at this late stage is a bonus to them.”
Imrul Kayes posted a total of 51 while Mahmudullah came one short of his own half-century. Shakib Al Hasan will bat when play resumes, standing at 19 not out when Haque was retired.
