Desk (bangladeshtime): The incredible 312-run opening stand between Tamim Iqbal and Imrul Kayes broke a 55-year-old record of test cricket on Saturday.
Before Pakistan managed to break the partnership at Sheikh Abu Naser Stadium, Colin Cowdrey and Geoff Pullar had held the record of highest first wicket-partnership in the third innings of any test match.
The English duo scored 290 runs against South Africa at The Oval on August 18, 1960.
Tamim and Kayes had played 75.4 over to build a 312-run partnership in the second innings of Bangladesh in the last day of the first test before Pakistan’s substitute player Zulfiqar Babar removed Kayes.
