It took Pakistan more than an hour on the fourth day to clean up the lower order in Bangladesh and to win the innings and 44 runs in the first test in Rawalpindi.
Bangladesh, which had given it a 212 round lead in the first round and was stumped by 126/6 on the third day, lost its last four goals for 38 runs. In total, they did 42 runs on the fourth morning, with Liton Das, who had not yet opened his account on Sunday, doing 29 of them.
Leg spinner Yasir Shah claimed that two of these four gates would match 16-year-old Pacer Naseem Shah since both ended up with four gates each. Naseem was awarded the player of the game prize for his five goals in the game, including a hat trick on the third evening.
Mominul Haque was the first to drop on Monday when he was caught by Shaheen Shah Afridi in the first round of the day. Liton then took over and dominated with a score of 26 goals with Rubel Hossain, who defended himself against 26 balls and scored 5. But when that position was broken, the inning quickly got out of hand when Bangladesh lost the last three gates for twelve runs.
Bangladesh had performed slightly better in the first innings than their middle order had come on, but Afridi made sure she stayed at 233. In response, Pakistan rolled centuries before Shan Masood and Babar Azam and fifty before Asad Shafiq and Haris Sohail to capture 445 before their launchers made sure they didn’t have to hit again.
