Pakistan eye victory despite Shakib show
Umar Gul and Aizaz Cheema each took two wickets to boost Pakistanís
chances of winning the second and final Test against Bangladesh on
Tuesday despite Shakib Al Hasanís superb all-round display.
The hosts were struggling at 114-5 in their second innings at stumps
on the penultimate day after conceding a lead of 132, with paceman Gul
bagging two wickets off successive balls and Cheema finishing the day
Nasir Hossain was unbeaten on 30 with Mushfiqur Rahim on seven not
Pakistan lead 1-0 in the series after winning the first Test in
Chittagong by an innings and 184 runs.
Gul dismissed free-scoring Tamim Iqbal (21) and Shahriar Nafees for
no score with his last two balls before the tea break after Pakistan
were bowled out for 470 in their first innings in reply to Bangladeshís
Tamim, who hit Cheema for three fours in an over, looked surprised
when adjudged caught by skipper Misbah-ul-Haq at first slip while
attempting to hook Gul. Shakib, also impressed as a left-arm spinner as
he took 6-82 to become the first Bangladeshi to score a century and bag
five or more wickets in a Test.
