Pakistan strike after setting 550 target
Pakistan lost three early wickets in their second innings but it mattered little as they extended their first-innings lead of 354 to 446 by tea on the third day in Mirpur
The trophy has been presented to Misbah. Time for the celebrations. So, Pakistan sign off with a massive win. While they brace themselves for an immense, nervy occasion, Bangladesh will look to iron out the creases before the Indian challenge. Do watch out for analyses from Isam and Umar. Many thanks for tuning in over the last four days. Until next time, goodbye and good luck.
Azhar Ali, Man of the Match and Man of the Series: It is a very good combined effort from the team. We all played really well. The coach and management has backed our abilities and we got the result. Getting centuries is satisfactory. We look up to Younis Khan and senior players and look to score big. In the past few months, we have been doing well in Tests. We did well against Australia. All credit should go to the team.
Misbah-ul-Haq: It is a much-needed win for us. The team showed great character. After losing the toss, the first session was important for us. The way Younis Khan and Azhar Ali batted was the base for our victory. There was more bounce here than Khulna, our bowlers enjoyed bowling on this wicket. Yasir Shah bowled really well. I am not part of the T20 and ODI side, but I wish my team a good series against Zimbabwe. It is really really good to see cricket come back in Pakistan. Everybody should congratulate Bangladesh the way they played. The first Test draw was a victory for them. We were disappointed by the last Test. The way we won this match we were satisfied. It was a much-needed win for us.
Mushfiqur Rahim: It was disappointing. We bowled some no balls and we were also one bowler down. Nothing went right for us in the first day. Pakistan are ranked No.3 in Tests and they came back hard. We did not plan well and execute well and that is why we lost the game. We have been playing consistently and we will have to learn quickly. Tamim has had a great series and Imrul too. Mominul as always gets 50-plus runs. The bowlers will have to be aggressive and keep us in the game for five days. If you want to win and if you want to compete in Tests, you will have to take 20 wickets. We need to plan better and we will look to do that against India.
2:06pm:The players shake hands. Waqar Younis is pleased. After being whitewashed in the limited-overs leg, Pakistan have rebounded strongly to wrap up the Test series 1-0 with a 328-run victory.
Imran Khan bowled with verve and triggered a Bangladesh slide on the fourth morning. Yasir Shah ripped a few and exploited the rough to trouble the hosts further. Save for Mominul's fifty and late blows from Shuvagata Hom, Bangladesh offered only flimsy resistance before Pakistan cleaned up the innings with more than four sessions to spare.
Salman Zafar: "Stats: Pakistan's largest victory margins in terms of runs: 356 against Australia at Abu Dhabi in 2014, 341 runs against India at Karachi in 2006, 328 runs against Bangladesh at Mir Pur in 2015, 301 runs against Sri Lanka at Colombo in 1994, 299 runs against New Zealand at Auckland in 2001.

samran_mirza: "''another series in the Account of MISBAH !''"
This had actually grazed leg, but the bails refused to get dislodged.
