Liton Das hits maiden Test ton as Bangladesh amass 253-4 on day one

CHATTOGRAM (92 News) – A brilliant maiden Test century by Liton Das’ lifted Bangladesh to 253 for four after they had been reduced to 49 for four on day one of the first Test against Pakistan at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium.

The wicketkeeper-batter was unbeaten on 113 off 225 balls as he smashed 11 fours and a six during a solid 204-run undefeated fifth wicket stand with Mushfiqur Rahim, who was not out on 82.

The hosts found themselves in a spot of bother in the morning session when Pakistan removed top four batters in a span of 58 minutes. Those, however, were the only wickets to fall on the day, as the pair of Liton and Mushfiqur pushed back the opposition during a remarkable rearguard effort.

Shaheen Shah Afridi, Hassan Ali, Sajid Khan and Faheem Ashraf took a wicket each.

The play was suspended in the latter half of the evening session because of fading light as 85 overs were bowled and the second day’s play will begin 11 minutes before the scheduled start to make up for the lost time.

Scores in brief:

Bangladesh 253-4, 85 overs (Liton Das 113 not out, Mushfiqur Rhaim 82 not out)
