Bangladesh vs Pakistan 1st Test, Day Highlights:Liton Das hit a sparkling century and veteran Mushfiqur Rahim looked set to get another Test century as Bangladesh ended Day 1 of the 1st Test in Chittagong at 253/4. Both Liton and Mushfiquir displayed impeccable resilience after Pakistan reduced Bangladesh to 49/4. Captain Mominul Haque had won the toss and elected to bat against Pakistan. Pakistan bowlers removed the top-order for cheap. The first three batters, Shadman Islam, Saif Hassan and Najmul Hossain Shanto, were all dismissed for identical scores of 14 runs. Skipper Mominul could only muster 6 before he too was sent back. Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi started well but were rendered ineffective by Liton and Mushfiqur.
