Pakistan set Bangladesh 550-run target in 2nd Test


DHAKA: Bangladesh were set a target of 550 runs to win the second and final Test in Dhaka after Pakistan declared their second innings at 195-6 on the third day on Friday.


Pakistan did not enforce the follow-on despite gaining a first-innings lead of 354 runs as they looked to put Bangladesh under pressure on the wearing pitch at the Sher-e-Bangla stadium.

Skipper Misbah-ul Haq led the charge with a 72-ball 82 before closing the innings soon after his dismissal in the post-tea session.
