Mohammad Hafeez took centre stage with 224, Azhar Ali 83, Asad Shafiq 83, wicketkeeper Sarfraz Ahmed 82, and captain Misbah ul Haq 59. Bowling for Bangladesh, Taijul Islam picked up 6/163 from 46.4, and Shuvagata Hom took 2/120 from 34. At close of play on day 4, the Tigers are 273 without loss in their 2nd innings, featuring an unbeaten opening stand between Tamim Iqbal on 138 and Imrul Kayes on 132.
