Twitter reactions: Liton Das’ maiden ton powers Bangladesh comeback on Day 1 of 1st Test against Pakistan

Bangladesh scripted an impressive comeback on Day 1 of the ongoing first Test against Pakistan at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram on Friday.

After opting to bat first, the hosts were down and out, with the top four batters back into the pavilion for just 49 runs. Then, Liton Das and Mushfiqur Rahim joined hands to stage one of the finest comebacks in the fascinating game.

Both Liton and Mushfiqur stood up when it was needed the most for Bangladesh. The experienced pair put together an unbeaten partnership of 204 runs for the fifth wicket, denying Pakistan any hope to make a comeback in the game.

Though Liton was dropped on 67 by Sajid Khan, the 27-year-old cashed in the opportunity against a quality Pakistan bowling attack, which somehow felt the pressure and failed to continue with consistent line and length.

After the tea break, Liton brought up his maiden century off 199 deliveries in the 78th over of the innings. The senior partner, Mushfiqur, played a brilliant supporting hand and displayed tremendous application to ensure that the hosts did not lose any more wickets before stumps on Day 1.

Bangladesh reached 253/4 before the bad lights forced the match officials to end the day’s play. Liton was unbeaten at 113 (11 fours, 1 six), while Mushfiqur (82*) stood 18 short of his eighth Test hundred.
