Pakistan speedster Hasan Ali heaped praises on Bangladesh batters Liton Das and Mushfiqur Rahim for their opening day performance against Pakistan.
Liton and Mushfiq put on an unbroken 204-run fifth-wicket stand, the most by the side, and took control of the game after Bangladesh was reduced to 49-4.
Liton was undefeated on 113 while Mushfiqur Rahim is steady at 82 runs as Bangladesh scored 253/4 in 85 overs at the end of the day's play.
“We had a good first session by taking early wickets. We should appreciate the way Liton Das and Mushfiqur Rahim batted. They played really well,” said Hasan.
Hasan further said they need to bowl in good areas to restrict Bangladesh, however, he believes the Pakistan batter have the ability to put on better score.
“It's a slow pitch and we need to bowl in good areas to get break-through. Bangladesh is in a good position at the moment. Our batters are in a good form and they have the ability to score better on these tracks,” he added.
