At the last day of Hyderabad Test, team Bangladesh is in batting and chasing 459 runs. According to the latest news, they have lost five wickets and currently Mahmudullah and Sabbir are on the crease where Mahmudullah has already scored a fifty and Sabbir stand with his 13 runs so far.

Earlier on fifth day, the Tigers started to bat with seven wickets in hand where Mahmudullah and Shakib were on the crease. But, in the beginning of the last day, Shakib could not stand for long but lost his most precious wicket by scoring 22 runs. He gave catch to Pujara. Jadeja made that important breakthrough. However, later skipper Mushfiqur came up who was the high scorer of 1st innings of the Tigers, but in the second innings, he failed to play very wisely when his team needed his service most. He also stroke a worst shot and gave his wicket to Ashwin. He scored 23 runs so far. After his departure, the Tigers are in pressure and most responsibility goes to last experienced batsman Mahmudullah. He is now on the crease with Sabbir Rahman. Sabbir Rahman is basically a hard hitter batsman well enough for T20 and ODI but in Test, he is quite unsuccessful. He scored just 16 runs in the first innings. Now, the match is getting most complicated and the Tigers has not many options left but if they want to draw the match, they have to play very carefully though 1st session of the last day is yet to complete and the Tigers has only five wickets in hand and they are not the best or brightest.

However, as per the latest news from Hyderabad, team Mushfiq has successfully completed the first session of the 5th day and in the meantime, they have scored 202 runs with five wickets in hand.

Earlier at the 9th February, 2017, the Tigers started to play the only test match against India at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad. India won the toss and came to bat. In the first innings, India scored 687 runs where two players scored century each and Virat Kohli made his 4th double century in Test. At the end of the second day, India declared the innings and the Tigers started to bat. The Tigers played well in their first innings but not well enough but captain Mushfiq made a amazing century there. So, finally, they finished the first innings by scoring 388 runs. Though, they needed 100 more runs to avoid follow – on but Kohli decided to bat for the second time.
