Bangladesh took control against Ireland with a strong performance on Wednesday on Day 2 of the one- off justice test, stressed by Mushfiqur Rahim’s century.
The stager batter hit 126 to lead Bangladesh to 369 all out despite off spinner Andy Mc Brine’s career-stylish 6- 118.
Bangladesh baits also came into the act on an decreasingly deteriorating pitch to reduce the Irish to 27- 4 at wholes, leaving them demanding 128 runs to force the hosts to club a alternate time.
Skipper Shakib Al Hasan and fellow left- arm incentive Taijul Islam participated four lattices to keep Bangladesh’s nose in front.
Peter Moor was on 10 and Harry Tector, the half- centurion of first innings, was on 8.
Shakib before missed his sixth century by 13 runs but put Bangladesh in control, alongside Mushfiqur after the early trouble.
After continuing Day 2 at 34- 2, Bangladesh lost Mominul Haque in the third over when he was sailed by Mark Adair( 2- 64) with a delivery that moved slightly.
Shakib and Mushfiqur participated 159 for the fourth gate, scoring runs at nearly five per over, which epitomized Bangladesh’s aspiration of playing attacking justice.
Shakib started with a boundary first ball, driving Adair’s half- blitz through cover and he didn’t look back.
He raised his 31st test half- century off just 45 balls, whipping a turning delivery off leg spinner Ben White for four through long- on.
Mushfiqur played with caution in discrepancy to Shakib’s aggressive approach.
Mc Brine broke the dangerous cooperation as Shakib lazily sculled a delivery well outside of off refuse after hitting 14 fours for his 87 off 94.
Mushfiqur went into high gear after Shakib’s redundancy and Liton Das rounded him well, starting with three straight fours against Curtis Campher.
Mushfiqur completed his 10th test century and third in the last eight innings off 135 balls, with an outside edge against Adair that flew between wicketkeeper and a wide slip.
Ireland’s poor ground fielding and lackluster bowling also boosted Bangladesh as the brace kept ticking scoreboard fleetly.
They also missed a run- eschewal chance after Liton and Mushfiqur got involved in a blend- up. But with Liton stranded half down the pitch, wicketkeeper Lorcan Tucker fumbled comically.
Still, it bring them little as Liton one ball latterly was caught at mid-off for 43, giving White his debut gate. White ended with 2- 71.
Bangladesh also endured a collapse, losing five lattices for 38 runs.
The spoilage began with Mushfiqur caught at long- on as he tried to hit a six from a Mc Brine delivery.
Mushfiqur 126 off 166 including 16 fours and one six.
Mehidy Hasan meanwhile picked up his fourth test half- century amid the regular lattices tumbling. He was the last batter out after hitting 54.
