In the previous over of Taizul, there was a strong appeal of leg before against centurion Abid Ali. The umpire did not give out the service. Later Bangladesh review showed that the ball touched the inside edge of Abid's bat before it hit the pad. So the Pakistani opener survived.
After dismissing Fawad, Taizul created a clear chance against Abid in the 70th over of the innings. His light curved delivery touched the outer edge of Abid's bat and went off on the first slip. But Nazmul Hossain Shant could not palpate it. As a result, Abid got life for 113 runs.
Abid and new batsman Mohammad Rizwan did not give any chance during the rest of the session. The two of them took the team to the lunch break.

Abid went ahead to play the second ball of Taizul's over. But the ball was going towards the square leg with the inner edge of the bat. Yasir Ali Rabbi, who was standing on short leg, took control of it with great speed. But in the end could not hold.
However, after one ball, Pakistan's Centurion was defeated in the delivery. The umpire ruled in favor of Taizul's strong plea. Abid could not save his wicket even with the review. He had to return to the dressing room with 133 runs. He made the lion's share of the team's runs alone before being dismissed.
After dismissing Abid, Taizul also sent Hasan Ali to the toilet. Hasan hit fours and sixes in the first two balls of the 96th over. He went on to hit the third ball in the same series in the hope of a boundary. But missed that turn and bounced delivery.
Liton made no mistake behind the wicket. He immediately broke the stamp and handed the address of the pavilion to Hasan. And Taizul's Pifer is fulfilled. This is the ninth time in his career that he has taken five wickets. Among the Bangladeshi bowlers, he rose to number two in the list of Fifa.
