Abu Jayed run-out vs Pakistan: The Bangladeshi seamer had to take the long walk back to the pavilion due to his carelessness.
During the first day of the first Test of the ongoing Bangladesh’s tour of Pakistan in Rawalpindi, Bangladesh seamer Abu Jayed was found wanting for his carelessness which saw him taking the long walk back to the pavilion.
It all happened on the penultimate delivery of the 83rd over when Pakistan seamer Mohammad Abbas’ pinpoint throw from mid-on dismissed Jayed. Having awkwardly defended a Shaheen Shah Afridi delivery to mid-on, Jayed was casually walking outside his crease.
It was only when Abbas attempted a direct-hit that Jayed thought of returning back to the crease. A sloppy effort at the same saw him grounding the bat before the crease and not moving it until the ball hit the stumps. Coming in to bat at No. 10 in the 82nd over, Jayed scored 0 (5) as he became the last Bangladeshi batsman to get out.
After Pakistan captain Azhar Ali won the toss and invited Bangladesh in to bat, his bowlers bundled out the visitors for 233 in 82.5 overs. Batsmen Mohammad Mithun’s second Test half-century, 63 (140), with the help of seven fours and a six saw him top-scoring for his team.
With bowling figures of 21.5-3-53-4, Afridi was the pick of the Pakistani bowlers. Apart from him, Abbas and all-rounder Haris Sohail picked two wickets apiece.
With play getting suspended due to bad light right before the Pakistani innings began, the home batsmen will commence their first innings today.

Bangladesh have been bowled out for 233 after Abu Jayed was run out for 0 (5); Excellent performance by Shaheen Shah Afridi and Mohammad Abbas but disappointing from Yasir Shah!
