Pakistan all out at 286 as Taijul takes 7 

Taijul Islam claimed seven wickets to put Bangladesh on top in the first Test against Pakistan at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram on Saturday on Sunday.

The hosts bowled out Pakistan for 286 on the stroke of tea on the third day to take a 44-run lead into the second innings thanks to the mesmerising bowling of Taijul, who finished with 7-116.

Ali made 133 off 282 balls, holding one end for Pakistan for a long stretch after Taijul's early strike of two wickets in two balls in the day's first over.

Faheem Ashraf added 38 late in the innings to keep Pakistan in contention before he was last man dismissed.

Pakistan, who resumed on 145-0 and looked poised for a big total, suffered a setback very early when Taijul trapped debutant Abdullah Shafique leg-before on his fifth ball.

Shafique left without adding to his overnight 52, and Taijul took Azhar Ali for a duck in the very next ball when the delivery hit him on the foot.

Azhar was initially given not out but the decision was reversed on review.

Babar Azam saw off the hat-trick ball in Taijul's next over but did not survive long.

Mehidy uprooted his off-stump with a straight delivery after the Pakistan skipper made only 10 runs.

In the first innings, Bangladesh lost all wickets to score 330 on day two at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram on Saturday.
