Opting to bat, Bangladesh lost their opener Mahmudul Hasan cheaply as he was trapped right in front by medium pacer L Vignesh
Half-Centuries by Md Shadman Islam (89; 194b, 9×4) and Mohammad Mithun (74 batting; 128b, 5x4s, 4x6s) enabled Bangladesh XI to post 230 for 5 in 84 overs against Tamil Nadu XI on the first day of the Bangladesh XI tour of Tamil Nadu, played at the MA Chidambaram Stadium here on Tuesday.
Opting to bat, Bangladesh lost their opener, Mahmudul Hasan, cheaply as he was trapped right in front by medium pacer L Vignesh.
Thereafter, Shadman and Mohamed Saif Hasan (38) played sensibly, adapted to the conditions and raised 85 runs in 198 balls for the second wicket. When Saif looked well set for a big score, he was castled by Vignesh, done in by a change of pace.
The host’s skipper, B Indrajith, who donned the gloves too in the four-day game, shuffled his bowlers in earnest. But Shadman and his skipper Mithun were stubborn, managing to raise 105 runs in 186 balls for the fourth wicket.
Shadman was unlucky to his miss his ton as he was done in by the guile of left-arm spinner Ajith Ram, who induced him to play a false stroke to NS Chaturvedi at mid-on.
Vignesh was the pick of TN bowlers picking up three wickets (3/37).
Brief scores: Bangladesh XI 230/5 in 84 ovs (Md Shadman Islam 89, Mohammad Saif Hasan 38, Mohammad Mithun 74 batting , L Vignesh 3/37).
