END OF OVER:
38 | (wicket maiden) | BDESH: 119/10

Right, so Pakistan are winning everything on this tour. Two Tests to come, the first in a couple of days. Can Bangladesh surprise everyone and us in that series? Join us to find out. Until then, on behalf of Alex Winter, Sanjay Murari and the rest of the gang, it is cheers and goodnight from Nitin Sundar. Ta.

Misbah: "This was a really tough game, and our bowlers did wonderfully. We need to improve our batting though. When there is self-belief, you manage to get through. Bangladesh were only one wicket down when the lights went out, and we were a little down. But Mohsin and Ijaz assured us that the game isn't over, and a wicket would bring us back. Umar came in a difficult situation, read the pitch well and that's what was required. Good to have everyone performing, and winning games from such difficult positions."

Mushfiqur: "Our bowlers did well all series, but our batsmen let us down. Hopefully we will overcome this in two days and do well in the Tests."

Umar Akmal: (Translated from Urdu): "It was a difficult wicket, Misbah asked me to build a stand, the ball was skidding, but it got easier. Both batting and keeping are difficult, since our bowlers are good. Thanks to Shahid Azlam Saab for helping me with my work-outs."

Rameez Raja does the presentation, and is a little carried away by the win and terms this "another nail-biting thriller". Mohammad Hafeez is invited for the highest wicket-taker award, and some sheepish faces in the presentation dais as he is wrongly handed the Man of the Match award. The lights are working, in case you were wondering. Nasir Hossain is given a bike for being the most valuable Bangladesh player. Not as strange as Sehwag winning an award in Ahmedabad yesterday for just turning up. Umar Akmal is Man of the Series as well as Man of the Match.

"Shoaib Malik : Man of the Match , is it possible?" Getting ahead of ourselves are we, Asman!

58 for 9 since that ill-fated black-out, and that includes a semi-decent partnership. Since then, Bangladesh have been spun out like a deer caught in the back-up lights that came on later. They looked as incapable of dealing with the situation as the simile in the previous line.

Shoaib Malik to Shafiul Islam, OUT, And then there were none. Shafiul looks to lash to the leg side as a length ball spins in sharply and breaks the stumps. Malik looks relieved, Misbah smiles like a Cheshire cat, and the crowd looks distraught. Pakistan have swept the series.

Shoaib Malik to Shafiul Islam, no run, that jumps up and turns in sharply, and goes off pad (and maybe bat) to the leg side. Akmal can't get there.

Shoaib Malik to Shafiul Islam, no run, Shafiul gets the front foot forward and tries to defend down the line now.

Shoaib Malik to Shafiul Islam, no run, flighted on leg stump, No. 11 goes for a big heave and misses.

Shoaib Malik to Elias Sunny, OUT, cleaned him up! Sunny is squared up by grip and spin, and is left groping as the ball breaks past and disturbs spin. This dismissal complements the Tamim wicket at the start of the innings. Sums up Bangladesh's day. They have been squared, and quartered, by Pakistan's spin.

Shoaib Malik to Elias Sunny, no run, short and big spin away, Sunny cuts it away to point.
