Commentary

Another innings defeat for Bangladesh, how can they stop their extended poor run in Tests? They did find an opener in Nazimuddin who seems like he can hang around a bit.

It was all too easy for Pakistan though. Rehman picked up four though he is still searching for his first five-for. Overall, a job well done by Pakistan, they can't have too many complaints about this game. Hang on for the presentation ceremony.

Andrew C from Australia, is looking for ways to cheer himself up: "I think that an innings victory should record the number of wickets left for the declaring side. Eg "an innings, 5 wickets and 150 runs victory". Since the number of wickets lost by the declaring side affects the degree of the victory. "

Andrew from New Zealand: "@Kazim: I didn't realise Kamran could 'keep... Maybe he did all the bowling."

Ahsan: "@Kazim, Akmal Brothers - They have four more brothers to bowl."

Here's the presentation:

Mushfiqur Rahim: "After I lost the toss, when you are 5 for 50, it's difficult to come back. But we fought back well in the second innings. All credit to Pakistan bowlers. Nazimuddin in his first Test showed how to play these guys, Shakib also. If we batted better in the first innings and took our catches. Sometimes we feel sorry for the crowd since they come and support us every time, though we haven't been able to win often."

Misbah: "The confidence the team has got from the wins, over the past year and a half is helping us. Our batsmen are experienced now, they know what the depends of Test cricket are. Rehman is our main spinner and he is performing well since the day he came into the side. We are not relying only on Rehman or Ajmal, Gul is bowling well, so is Cheema, Hafeez too. Everybody is friends in the dressing room, there are no seniors or juniors, we are enjoying ourselves. Younis has a terrific, every match he has been giving 110%, he has helped everyone."

The Man of the Match is Younis Khan. "As a senior guy, all the time I want to inspire the youngsters. The key is to enjoy cricket, we have a lot of travel, a lot of pressure, you need to enjoy the game. [About his fitness] Whenever I have a chance to play cricket, I just play. All the credit goes to the boys, every single player wants to perform."

It's on to Mirpur for the second Test starting on the 17th. Here's hoping for a tighter contest, do join us then.

Aizaz Cheema to Shahadat Hossain, OUT, it's all over in Chittagong, Shahadat backs away and looks to power a short ball through the off side, hits low on the bat, and that loops towards Gul at cover, a massive win for Pakistan

Aizaz Cheema to Shahadat Hossain, no run, shortish ball is forehanded back towards the bowler, who picks it up and pretends to throw the ball at the stumps, no timing on that shot from Shahadat

Aizaz Cheema is on as Pakistan look to finish this game off
