Watch live online as the First Test between Pakistan and Bangladesh moves into day four, with Pakistan looking to build on the commanding lead it put together on the third day at Sheikh Abu Naser Stadium in Khulna, Bangladesh. The Test Match format appears to have allowed the visitors to find their form after what star batsman Mohammad Hafeez called a "painful" blanking in the three-match One Day International series that opened the tour.
Hafeez led the Pakistan fightback with a stunning double century starting on day two and extending into day three, until he was finally caught out for 224, ending the batsman's first-ever 200-plus innings.
An impressive 83 from Azhar Ali and Test Captain Misbah-ul-Haq at 59 helped lift Pakistan to a 205-run lead, scoring 537 to the Bangladesh first innings tally of 332 — and Pakistan still have five wickets in hand heading into Day 4, with Asad Shafiq and Sarfraz Ahmed not out on 51 each.

His performance was especially meaningful to Hafeez after his disappointing showing the ODI series.
"I wanted to do something but it didn't go well for me. I had bad feeling in my heart for the whitewash in ODI was painful for me and for the team, and I worked hard in the nets to regain the form and everything worked for me," the 34-year-old all-rounder said.
