Mehedi Hasan Miraz and Mushfiqur Rahim’s partnership was the main turning point for Bangladesh in the 3rd day of Hyderabad test match. In this only test match, Indian players put a large total in front of Bangladesh. Because of some early wickets, Bangladesh was going to lose the momentum. But Mushfiq and Miraz didn’t let that happen. After Shakib’s wicket, Miraz came to the crease and helped Mushfiq to finish the day three without losing any more wickets.
Captain Virat Kohli was surprised quite a bit by Miraz. When the entire team was waiting take all wickets of Bangladesh, then Miraz and Mushfiq forced them to change their game plan. Bangladesh’s innings was ending quickly after Shakib’s wrong shot selection. He gave away his wicket when he was just about to get a century. No one thought that Shakib could get out by playing that kind of wicked shot. A partnership was necessary at that time.
Mushfiq and Miraz did that very well. Their most important partnership of 87 runs helped them to end the day. By the end of the day players of Bangladesh cricket team scored 322 runs by losing six wickets.
Tamim and Mominul started the day with a lot of expectations.All went in vain after Tamim’s run out. Miss understanding between Tamim and Mominul gave a huge shake to Bangladesh’s batting line-up. After playing a few balls Mominul also gave away his wicket. Before going to the pavilion he added 12 runs from 36 balls. Top order batsmen were showing their old performance as always. Middle order batsmen tried a bit to rescue their team from follow on.
As usual, Mahmudullah Riyad couldn’t give his best. From the beginning of the New Zealand series, this valuable batsman is trying to get back his rhythm. Which is most important for him and his team also. Today he got out at 28 runs after playing 57 runs. Miraz and Mushfiq will start the new day tomorrow. In the 4th day, Bangladesh will be looking forward to taking some leads.
