Commentary

Its closing time. Can Misbah and Younis spark a turnaround for Pakistan in Tests? Do tune in then to find out. Until then, this is Deivarayan Muthu saying ciao.

Mashrafe collects the trophy and poses for the photographers. Read Al Muthu's report.

Sabbir Rahman, Man of the Match: I enjoyed batting and I am very happy. This is my first fifty and I dedicate it to my family. Credit to our coaching-staff. Hopefully, we win the Test series.

Mashrafe Mortaza, Bangladesh captain: Nice moment for us. We have been waiting for this for the past 6-7 months. We have been working hard. I am sure that the boys will deliver in Tests too. I am going alright [on his fitness].

Shahid Afridi, Pakistan captain: I want to congratulate Bangladesh. They have great momentum, especially in home conditions. I think our team is balanced in Test cricket. Misbah and Younis will be back for Tests. I would love to come back to Bangladesh

9:30pm: Joyous scenes in the Bangladesh camp, they continue their dominance over Pakistan. The hosts lost both their openers inside three overs, Mushfiq flickered briefly, but unbeaten fifties from Shakib and Sabbir ensured that Bangladesh aced their chase. Pakistan's bowling was once again ordinary. Do stick round for the presentation, guys.

Moin: "@Saif Tonmoy: You're absolutely right! This is not the experience that made the difference between these two teams in this tour. Bangladesh is just an improved side. Look at the guy Sabbir who made 50 in his 5th T20I and Mostafizur who bowled really well as a debutant."

fayyaz: "Misbah.....Where are you!!!"

Ahsan Butt: "Once again, batting letting down Pakistan. Not sure, when will Pakistan learn to change its defensive mindset. " Their bowling too has left a lot to be desired.

Farhan Mumtaz: "@Syed: Not 14, its 21 out of 49 squandered by Shehzad!"

Rakib: "Format changes but same old Bangladesh. Sheer domination "
