Dhaka: Taufeeq Umar struck an assured century to help Pakistan reach 292-3 at stumps on the third day of the second cricket Test against Bangladesh on Monday.

Pakistan still trails Bangladesh in its first innings by 46 runs after the hosts were dismissed for 338 on Sunday. Nazmul Hossain, who finished with figures of 2-51, and Shakib Al Hasan with 1-28 accounted for the Pakistan wickets.
After Bangladesh failed to make a breakthrough in the fog-delayed morning session, Shakib dismissed Ali in the second.
Pakistan leads the two-Test series 1-0 after the visitors beat Bangladesh by an innings and 184 runs in the first Test in Chittagong.
