Default Last Day of Test Cricket at BNS

Folks, amid the anticipation of an exciting last day of play, we may have forgotten that this is supposed to be the last day of Test cricket at the beloved Bangabandhu National Stadium. With the stadium to be turned over to football for the upcoming season, this is the last cricket Test to be played here unless there is a policy change in the future.

The expansive bowl seats only 35,000 when most people swear there are tens of thousands more when there is a full house. Most of us remember this place simply as "Dhaka Stadium". Since it was renamed to BNS, Bangladesh have played all of its Dhaka Tests here. But test cricket was of course first played here by Pakistan. The current Test against Zimbabwe is the 17th Test to be played here. Here is the summary of results of the previous 16:

overall 16 2 8 0 6 62% 25.84 22.3 35.8 17.6 35.5 2.47
