Bangladesh vs Pakistan 1st Test, Day Live Cricket Score:Bangladesh captain Mominul Haque won the toss and elected to bat against Pakistan on day 1 of the first Test that is now underway in Chattogram. It has not been a great start for the hosts though as the Pakistan bowlers have removed the entire top order for cheap. The first three batsmen, Shadman Islam, Saif Hassan and Najmul Hossain Shanto were all dismissed for the identical score of 14 runs respectively. Skipper Mominul could only muster 6 before he too was sent back. The onus to take Bangladesh to a big enough score is on the shoulders of veteran Mushfiqur Rahim and Liton Das. Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi and others have been on the money and will look¬† to end Bangladesh’s first essay early.
