The Tigers lost their first four wickets for just 47 runs inside the first ten overs. The two most experienced batters for the Bangladeshis, skipper Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim started the rebuilding phase.
The pair added exactly 100 runs for the fifth wicket but just when they were trying to up the ante, Al Hasan was caught at deep square leg.
The tail didn’t contribute, and once Rahim was dismissed for 64, Haris Rauf and Naseem Shah cleaned up the tail with ease.
Haris Rauf was the pick of the bowlers with four for 19 while Naseem Shah picked up three wickets.
