Naseem Shah became the youngest bowler to take a hat-trick in Test cricket. Bangladesh were well poised at 124-2 with both Shanto and Mominul well set at the crease. The lead was narrowed down to around 100 runs as well. But Naseem Shah had other ideas as he ripped through Bangladeshi middle order. First, it was Shanto who was trapped leg before wicket. Taijul Islam came into bat as a night watchman but he was also trapped leg before. Mahmudullah then was caught by Haris Sohail off Naseem Shah giving the youngster his first-ever hat-trick in test cricket.
Bangladesh were batting very well when after the fall of Tamim but their good display of batting didn't last long. Earlier, Bangladesh did well to restrict Pakistan to 455. Babar Azam and Shan Masood brought up their centuries in the first innings. Both of them have been in good touch and they have scored most of the runs for Pakistan recently. While Babar Azam is a gifted player, Masood works very hard in the nets. Haris Sohail and Asad Shafiq also chipped in with fifties.
It will be interesting to see how long can Bangladesh bat tomorrow morning. They are still trailing by 86 runs and they have lost 6 wickets. However, their skipper, Mominul is still at the crease with Liton Das. Both are capable of making big scores but at the same time, Pakistani bowlers will be supercharged tomorrow morning.
