Tuesday 20 December 2011
Taufiq Umar completed his seventh Test century as Pakistan, England's opponents in the new year, closed in on a first-innings lead by reaching 292 for 3 before bad light ended play on the third day of the second Test against Bangladesh yesterday.
Taufiq hit 130 before paceman Nazmul Hossain broke through with the second new ball. Shahriar Nafees took the catch at slip to end Taufiq's innings.
Former captain Younus Khan was unbeaten on 48 alongside successor Misbah-ul Haq (26 not out), with Pakistan needing another 47 runs to overhaul Bangladesh's first innings 338.
