the fine sweep this time. Fuller down the leg side and swept past the leg slip. Back-to-back boundaries and Pakistan take 1-0 lead
That's all from our side for this game. Hope you enjoyed our coverage. See you soon.
Babar Azam: The way Bangladesh played in the first innings that was really good but Shaheen and Hasan were outstanding. That's the beauty of Test cricket that it allows you to make a comeback. We didn't have much time to prepare for the Test but we gave our best. I am really pleased with the way Abdullah Shafique built his innings. Abid Ali was outstanding, scoring tough runs to pull the team out from difficult position.
Abid Ali is the Player of the Match: Abdullah Shafique was making his debut, so we tried to stay on the crease, waited for bad balls and succeeded in putting those away. I had done well in the domestic cricket and carried that positive mindset here too. Abdullah played really well, I gave him more credit. He was outstanding and my best wishes are with him. I am a bit disappointed that I got out for 91 in the second innings but at the same time I am happy that we won the match.
Mominul Haque: I think we lost in the first one hour on both our innings. In first innings, Mushfiqur and Liton stepped up. If we had got 100 more runs, it would have been different. We have to improve against new ball.
Stay tuned for the presentation ceremony.
Isam: If Shakib is available, Bangladesh will likely drop Abu Jayed. Playing three spinners in Mirpur makes more sense with Shakib around.
Ahsan : "Shakib would come in for Yasir!!!"
Ahad: "If Shakib is fit for the next match, who makes way for him? Do you play him, Taijul and Mehdi? Can't drop Taijul after this game but would you go in with 2 left arm orthodox and drop a right arm spinner? Questions questions..."
11.36am A comfortable victory in the end despite conceding a first-innings lead. The only thing Pakistan would rue perhaps is they couldn't make it a ten-wicket win and their openers couldn't get to the three-figure mark. Smiles in the Pakistan camp as the players shake hands.
