Ramiz Raja, the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), expressed his delight after the national cricket team trounced Bangladesh in the first Test match of the two-match series on Tuesday.

The former cricketer and current chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) came to Twitter to congratulate Babar Azam XI on their victory on a track that was favourable to spinners.

“Congratulations, gentlemen! It was a challenge of sorts to go for 200 on a pitch that was turning. It’s fantastic that the pursuit was handled flawlessly. Furthermore, winning away from home is usually more memorable “He sent out a tweet.

Pakistan overcame Bangladesh in the first Test match, with Ali’s 151-run partnership with fellow opener Abdullah Shafique playing a significant role in the victory. On the last day, the match was completed before midday.

Abid Ali and Abdullah Shafique had already scored 109 runs overnight, putting them in position to chase down Bangladesh’s 202-run mark.

A fuller delivery from Mehidy Hasan on 73 caught debutant Shafique leg before wicket in the tenth over of the day, giving Bangladesh their first victory of the day at the end of the 10th over.

Shafique, who also had a fifty-run first innings, was dismissed after hitting eight fours and a six in the innings.

Ali, who scored 133 runs in Pakistan’s first innings, seemed on course to become the first Pakistani to score a century pair in a Test match in six years, after Misbah-ul-historic Haq’s achievement against Australia in 2014.

However, Taijul Islam struck him in front of the middle stump with a straighter ball, leaving Pakistan needing 31 runs to win the match.

“Our thinking process was to remain at the wicket and form a partnership with the other team. I’ve been participating in domestic cricket and have had good results. That’s what I brought with me into this game “Ali was named the man of the match.

In addition to receiving a standing ovation, the Bangladeshi fielders commended him on a magnificent effort that included 12 fours and six sixes in 148 balls of cricket.
