DHAKA: Pakistan were 323 for three at stumps on the opening day of the second and final Test against Bangladesh at the Sher-e-Bangla stadium on Wednesday.
Younis Khan scored 148 and Azhar Ali was unbeaten on 127, the pair having put on 250 for the third wicket.
The tourists lost Mohammad Hafeez (eight) and Sami Aslam (19) in the morning session to slide to 58-2 after Bangladesh won the toss and elected to field.
Younis was dismissed shortly before stumps, but skipper Misbah-ul Haq kept Azhar company at the close on nine.
The first Test ended in a draw in Khulna last week. (AFP)
