Shafiul sent two openers Soumya Sarkar and Imrul Kayes and middle-order batsman Mahmudullah Riyad back to the pavilion in his very first spell of the innings. Soumya caught himself in the slip while Litton Kayes took an easy of Imrul behind the wicket.
It was a very embarrassing situation for Mahmudullah Riyad on the middle as he had to go back to the pavilion without scoring any run. Afterwards, captain Mushfiqur Rahim along with Nazmul Hossain Shanto tackled the pressure.
However, Mushfiqur couldn’t stay on the middle for long as Sanjit Saha sent him after scoring 30. Nazmul Hossain Shanto was the only batsman to score a half-century for Team Mushfiqur
However, the start was not that good for Tamim’s team as well. Litton Das who got a life when he was on 1, was picked by pacer Rubel Hossain. Afterwards Tamim and Mominul stayed on the crease to finish the first day of the match.
