Dhaka - Teenage opener Ahmed Shehzad and Test skipper Misbah-ul-Haq both smashed centuries as Pakistan piled up 285-9 against Bangladesh in a Cricket World Cup warm-up on Tuesday.

Shehzad, just 19, top-scored with 103 off 122 balls with nine fours and one six while Misbah cracked a 100-ball century with eight boundaries and four giant sixes at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur.

Despite the pair's pyrotechnics, Pakistan's other batsmen failed to fire with the next best score being a modest 21 from opener Mohammad Hafeez.

Bangladesh used nine bowlers with skipper and slow left-armer Shakib Al Hasan taking 3-49 off his 10 overs.

Seamer Rubel Hossain also claimed three wickets, but his 10 overs cost 73 runs.
