Chance missed for Mithun

If Mithun could have scored few runs with the team in a dire position, like he had done on previous occasions in the one-day format, he could have surely marked his arrival in Tests with a strong message

The stage was set for debutant Mohammad Mithun to show his class and temperament at the Test level. Bangladesh were two down, with both openers back in the pavilion and Zimbabwe on top. 

If Mithun could have scored few runs with the team in a dire position, like he had done on previous occasions in the one-day format, he could have surely marked his arrival in Tests with a strong message. 

But unfortunately, the right-handed batsman managed to face only four balls before getting out for a duck. Not only the duck but also the way he lost his wicket was also disappointing. It was a wide half-volley delivery outside off from Donald Tiripano. 

Mithun chased it, played a casual late cut, got the edge, and was caught at second slip. It was a disappointing start for Mithun in Tests.
