OUT! Caught. Yasir Shah to Abu Jayed. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, top edge in the air uncontrolled to short third man, by Shafiq. Filthy swipe, it balloons straight up and Shafiq has a safe pair of hands. Pakistan complete a very impressive victory. A clinical Pakistan performance has resulted in an innings and 44 run victory over Bangladesh in Rawalpindi. Their bowlers got things rolling on the opening day, maintaining consistency to keep pressure on the touring batsmen despite fairly placid conditions. Shaheen Afridi bagged four wickets and then it was all about Shan Masood and Babar Azam. A pair of classy centuries gave the hosts a massive first innings lead and even an impressive effort from the Tigers on Sunday wasn't enough to bring them back into contention. Naseem Shah provided the moment of the match with a sublime hat-trick, delivering reverse swing at high pace in front of a jubilant crowd. Yasir Shah put the cherry on top of the cake with four wickets of his own, completing the win on the morning of Day Four. There is a long break now before the Second Test in April, so attention will turn to the PSL for Pakistan while Bangladesh will be heading back home to play Zimbabwe.

OUT! L.B.W. Yasir Shah to Liton Das. Leg spinner half volley, to leg on the front foot sweeping, hit pad to. That looks very close, too full to sweep and the ball skids underneath Liton's bat. As soon as the umpire says not out Pakistan want to review it. Ball tracking shows why they were so excited, it's stone dead and Liton has to go. Yasir enjoyed that one, he was one step ahead of the batsman and got his man. Just one wicket left now.

OUT! Run Out. Shaheen Afridi to Abu Jayed. In-swinging length ball, down leg side on the back foot working, to mid on, direct hit by Abbas. Oh dear, village cricket from Abu Jayed. He wanders from the crease and turns his back on the ball, finding himself a couple of inches short as the throw from Abbas flattens middle stump. I have no idea what he was thinking there, absent minded stuff from the Bangladesh bowler to end the innings. Azhar Ali's decision to bowl first this morning has been fully vindicated as Pakistan have bowled Bangladesh out for just 233. Mohammad Mithun made a battling fifty for the tourists but too many others got starts and then gave their wickets away in a soft fashion. Shaheen Afridi was the pick of the bowlers, picking up 53-4 in a skilful display.

OUT! Caught. Naseem Shah to Mohammad Mithun. Seaming in back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, Gloved to wicketkeeper, by Rizwan. Prolonged appeal, Pakistan are convinced they have their man. The umpire isn't too sure and eventually Azhar asks for a review. Naseem got it to jag back prodigiously from the surface to cut Mithun in half and replays show it lightly brushed the glove on the way through. Rizwan scooped it up just above the turf and the hosts can celebrate. Three correct reviews now made by Azhar today.

FOUR! Naseem Shah to Mohammad Mithun. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Incredible batting, technically pure and gorgeously aesthetic. Mithun is really enjoying himself out there.

OUT! Bowled. Shaheen Afridi to Rubel Hossain. In-swinging length ball, middle stump on the front foot driving, missed to. Cleaned him up, that was far too good for Rubel who was attempting a rather ambitious booming drive down the ground. Lovely hooping inswing with the second new ball and it soars straight through the gate to make a mess of the stumps.

OUT! Caught. Haris Sohail to Taijul Islam. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid off, by Shah. A rush of blood from Taijul, there was absolutely no need for a shot like that with the light closing in. Looking to slam the ball over the top, it dips on him and balloons high into the air. Yasir keeps his eye on it all the way, out of the sunlight and into the shadows as Bangladesh lose their seventh wicket.

Skewed over the top, Taijul happy to take the aerial route although not the cleanest strike. As the shadows lengthen in Rawalpindi it's time for the players to take a drink. This partnership is really frustrating the hosts but they will have a new ball available very soon.

That's a gift, Mithun has ample time to go deep in the crease and smash it over the top. He's approaching fifty and fully deserves it after digging deep for his country.

OUT! L.B.W. Haris Sohail to Liton Das. Stock length ball, to leg on the front foot sweeping, hit pad to. What a riposte by the bowler, Liton is on his way. This has come out of nowhere, the Bangladesh keeper was looking in complete command. He attempted to sweep but the ball was too full and it skidded underneath the blade. Another superb review by Azhar Ali, ball tracking shows it was smashing middle stump. Haris makes immediate amends for his drop in the last over.

FOUR! Haris Sohail to Liton Das. Stock ball short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Dragged down, easy pickings for Liton to rock back and pick his spot. Pakistan only have four frontline bowlers so they are forced to turn to the part-time spin of Haris and Liton is licking his lips.

FOUR! Naseem Shah to Liton Das. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep point for 4 runs. Wonderful stroke, the ball rockets to the rope as Liton holds the pose. He found the fielder at cover with his previous drive so this time opens the face of the blade slightly more to find the gap with surgical precision. Two wickets in that hour leaves Pakistan firmly on top, however Bangladesh are mounting a recovery through Mithun and Liton. Time for some hydration in the Rawalpindi sunshine.

FOUR! Yasir Shah to Mohammad Mithun. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the back foot driving, thick edge past third man for 4 runs.

OUT! Caught. Shaheen Afridi to Mahmudullah. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge to second slip, by Shafiq. Sensational catch, Shafiq soars to his right and plucks it from the air before getting mobbed by his teammates. Magic moment for Pakistan. Mahmudullah won't want to see a replay of the shot, sucked into a very wide delivery to follow up the high bouncer previous ball. Shaheen gets his third wicket of the day and has his sights on more.

It's not often you get a delivery like this from Abbas so it's important to make full use of it. Mahmudullah does exactly that by carving the ball elegantly to the fence. Important runs for the tourists, Mahmudullah is key from this position.

OUT! Caught. Mohammad Abbas to Nazmul Hossain Shanto. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, top edge to wicketkeeper, by Rizwan. Gone, big moment early in the afternoon session. Abbas is so relentless with his line and length so Shanto was looking to force a scoring option when it wasn't really there for it. Rizwan gleefully pouches the edge and all of a sudden Bangladesh are in real trouble again. Shanto showed promise but couldn't make it count with a match-defining knock.

OUT! Caught. Shaheen Afridi to Mominul Haque. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Rizwan. Got him, that's what Pakistan have been striving for and it's Shaheen who provides it. A little bit of nibble off the deck is enough to kiss the outside edge as Mominul wafts well away from his body. The Bangladesh skipper will be gutted with that, he did all the hard work and now has thrown it away.

Shanto gets down low on one knee and unleashes a vicious sweep to put the spinner under early pressure. He absolutely crunched it, the fielders didn't move an inch.

Sharp thinking by the fielder and Naseem's foot is half an inch above the turf. Saif has a big smile on his face, now he can think about his batting. Pakistan have been bowled out for 445. They will have been hoping for more than that when they arrived at the ground this morning but Bangladesh have been disciplined and skilful to limit the lead to 212 runs. It's still a mighty deficit so the tourists will have to bat much better than they did in the first innings.

Filthy swipe, it balloons straight up and Shafiq has a safe pair of hands. Pakistan complete a very impressive victory. A clinical Pakistan performance has resulted in an innings and 44 run victory over Bangladesh in Rawalpindi.

Shaheen Afridi bagged four wickets and then it was all about Shan Masood and Babar Azam. A pair of classy centuries gave the hosts a massive first innings lead and even an impressive effort from the Tigers on Sunday wasn't enough to bring them back into contention. Naseem Shah provided the moment of the match with a sublime hat-trick, delivering reverse swing at high pace in front of a jubilant crowd. Yasir Shah put the cherry on top of the cake with four wickets of his own, completing the win on the morning of Day Four. There is a long break now before the Second Test in April, so attention will turn to the PSL for Pakistan while Bangladesh will be heading back home to play Zimbabwe.

OUT! L.B.W. Yasir Shah to Liton Das. Leg spinner half volley, to leg on the front foot sweeping, hit pad to. That looks very close, too full to sweep and the ball skids underneath Liton's bat. As soon as the umpire says not out Pakistan want to review it. Ball tracking shows why they were so excited, it's stone dead and Liton has to go. Yasir enjoyed that one, he was one step ahead of the batsman and got his man. Just one wicket left now.

OUT! L.B.W. Mohammad Abbas to Rubel Hossain. Reverse Swing-In length ball, outside off stump on the back foot working, hit pad to. Abbas strikes, Rubel's resistance is ended. The fast bowler was beginning to frustrate Pakistan but now Abbas has found a way through. It seemed as though he was beaten by the length, playing back when coming forward would have been the better option. Some hoop back into the right-hander and it's a simple one for the umpire. Two more needed now for Pakistan. Drinks are on the field and they will taste sweet for the hosts. They are on the verge of a massive victory. Liton Das might have to try and cut loose with not much batting left to come.

Off the edge but Rubel has played that with soft hands so it goes into the ground. There are two slips in place and they look at each other as the ball shoots between them.

FOUR! Mohammad Abbas to Liton Das. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs.

OUT! L.B.W. Shaheen Afridi to Mominul Haque. Reverse Swing-In half volley, off stump on the front foot working, hit pad to. What a response from Shaheen, swapping the direction of the swing to pin the Bangladesh skipper plumb in front. Mominul takes a punt on a review because he was very close to getting a bit of bat on it but it can't save him with the pictures inconclusive. Once again in this Test match a wicket falls very early in the day, that has been a common theme. Pakistan take a big step towards victory.

OUT! Bowled. Yasir Shah to Mohammad Mithun. Googly back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, missed to. A complete brain-fade from Mithun, wildly heaving across the line only to look down and see his middle stump pegged back. Absolutely no need for that at this time of the day, terrible batting. Mominul looks on with disgust from the non-striker's end, Bangladesh are collapsing in a heap at the end of Day Three. Yasir has his tail up, Pakistan cock-a-hoop.

OUT! Caught. Naseem Shah to Mahmudullah. Reverse Swing-Out length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge to first slip, by Sohail. He's done it, unbelievable scenes in Rawalpindi. Naseem charges off and the rest of the team can't catch him, unbridled joy for the hosts. Mahmudullah inexplicably attempted a big drive and the edge was snaffled by a jubilant cordon. Terrible shot in the circumstances. What a moment for the young fast bowler, he will never forget this evening. Bangladesh in turmoil now.

OUT! L.B.W. Naseem Shah to Taijul Islam. Reverse Swing-In half volley, off stump on the front foot working, hit pad to. Another one, Naseem doesn't even turn around to see the finger go up because he knows it is stone dead. Hooping reverse swing tails in late and Taijul is nowhere near it. The nightwatchman is gone first ball and all of a sudden Pakistan have a spring in their step again. Naseem on a hat-trick.

OUT! L.B.W. Naseem Shah to Nazmul Hossain Shanto. Reverse Swing-In length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, hit pad to. Prolonged appeal, that looked pretty adjacent but the umpire doesn't agree. Azhar doesn't take much convincing to send this upstairs. Naseem is generating good pace and got this to skid through off the deck to catch Shanto by surprise. Ball tracking has it hitting inline and wacking leg stump flush, great review by the hosts. Massive strike late in the day.

OUT! L.B.W. Yasir Shah to Tamim Iqbal. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to. You could sense this wicket was coming, Tamim never looked confident with Yasir pitching it in the rough outside his off stump from around the wicket. He accepts the decision and trudges off, fully aware that the ball was going on to hit leg stump. He ended up playing for too much turn and the ball beat his outside edge to cannon into the back pad. Big wicket for the hosts.

There's the breakthrough, Naseem Shah gets it right after a difficult start to his spell. Some variable bounce and Saif is leaden-footed on the crease, getting a thin nick back onto the sticks. Sheer pace from the young quick has extracted something different from the surface. Pakistan needed that.
