That's it from me Ninaad Dixit, Wali and Anurag Singh. Stay tuned to OneCricket and Cricketexchange for more cricket coverage from around the world and join back tomorrow morning as we bring you coverage from day 4 of what is going to be a tight finish to a Test match.

Until then, take care and stay safe.
Ninaad: Bangladesh started making inroads straight away as Taijul Islam picked up 2 wickets in 2 deliveries in the very first over of the day. Debutant Abdullah Shafique was the first one to depart after scoring 52 and the experienced Azhar Ali was dismissed first ball after getting trapped plumb in front.

The Pakistan middle order showed no resistance as skipper Babar Azam, Fawad Alam and wicketkeeper Mohammad Rizwan were dismissed cheaply. Opener Abid continued playing his own game and was dismissed by Taijul Islam as the sixth wicket. He scored 133 off 282 deliveries. All rounder Faheem Ashraf showed some resistance and scored 38 off 80 balls. 

It was a dream outing for Taijul in whites as he became the highest wicket taker for Bangladesh in Test cricket against Pakistan, surpassing Mohammad Rafique. Taijul finished with astonishing figures of 7-116. Ebadot Hossain bowled a magnificent spell in the first two sessions and his figures of 2-47 off 26 overs don't do justice to the brilliant spell he delivered.

In the final session, Shaheen Afridi and Hasan Ali made some early inroads and put Pakistan in the commanding position as they managed to pick up the wickets of the Bangladesh top 4 before bad light forced them to bowl spinners in tandem. The light kept fading and the umpires had enough after the nineteenth over as they called stumps earlier on third consecutive day.

The match is well poised with Mushfiqur Rahim still on the crease and Liton Das yet to arrive, the heroes of first innings for Bangladesh. The day would have been won by Bangladesh if not for the wickets they lost in the third session which pushed the momentum in Pakistan's favor.
Another day and another early finish. The umpires have had enough and stumps have been drawn earlier due to bad light again.
