Fall of wickets: 1-9 (Mohammad Hafeez, 3.3 ov), 2-58 (Sami Aslam, 22.5 ov), 3-308 (Younis Khan, 84.5 ov), 4-323 (Misbah-ul-Haq, 91.4 ov), 5-530 (Azhar Ali, 146.1 ov), 6-545 (Asad Shafiq, 148.6 ov), 7-552 (Wahab Riaz, 151.2 ov), 8-557 (Yasir Shah, 151.6 ov)
3.3 to Mohammad Hafeez, Mohammad Shahid claims the outside edge of Hafeez, Mushfiq pouches it. This was an impressive ball from Shahid - angled in on a back of a length and straightens with extra bounce. Hafeez dangles his bat out and prods at it with no feet movement, nicking it off to the keeper off a thin outside edge. 9/1
84.5 to Younis Khan, The Mirpur crowd finds its voice. The umpires check for a possible no ball. Its a legal ball and Shahid exults. No 150 for Younis, end of a 250-run stand. Fractionally short and outside off, Younis loads up for a cut and slices it to gully, where Hom juggles and snaffles it on the rebound. 308/3
22.5 to Sami Aslam, Shahadat judges it well and takes it, Taijul strikes! Not a judicious shot, this. On a length and on middle, Aslam skips out and flicks it in the air. Shahadat runs to his left and pouches it safely. 58/2
151.2 to Wahab Riaz, down the ground and taken at long-on this time, another good catch! He got a full delivery around middle and leg, and slogged it against the turn down the ground. Imrul Kayes ran to his left to take a good running catch over his left shoulder. 552/7
151.6 to Yasir Shah, keeps low, they appeal for lbw, given out, and Yasir reviews it! The flatter delivery was sliding towards the leg side, Yasir went back in the crease to pull it, but it kept low and struck him on the pads just in front of leg stump. It might have hit him on the front pad first, but ball tracking says it was clipping so the decision stays with the umpire. 557/8
146.1 to Azhar Ali, the big wicket has fallen, Azhar holes out to long-off! He danced down the track for the length delivery outside off, couldn't take it on the full, only got the toe end of the bat and Mahmudullah at long-off caught it comfortably. Azhar gets a pat on the back from Mushfiqur as he walks back. 530/5
148.6 to Asad Shafiq, Shafiq also holes out to long off, this one a good catch! He came down and got under it, but didn't get enough distance to send it over the rope. Mahmudullah came in from long off and dives forward to get his hands under it. 545/6
91.4 to Misbah-ul-Haq, beaten and bowled'im! Excellent spin bowling to beat Misbah's defence. The length ball pitched on leg stump as Misbah came down the track to block it before letting it turn, but it did turn and just beat the outside edge to disturb leg stump. 323/4

TOTAL47.3 Ov (RR: 4.27)203
Fall of wickets: 1-4 (Tamim Iqbal, 0.4 ov), 2-38 (Mominul Haque, 8.5 ov), 3-69 (Imrul Kayes, 17.3 ov), 4-85 (Mahmudullah, 20.4 ov), 5-107 (Mushfiqur Rahim, 27.5 ov), 6-113 (Soumya Sarkar, 30.6 ov), 7-119 (Shuvagata Hom, 32.1 ov), 8-140 (Taijul Islam, 38.3 ov), 9-203 (Mohammad Shahid, 47.3 ov)
0.4 to Tamim Iqbal, first over, first wicket for Junaid, gets Tamim lbw, but the batsman reviews it! The ball swung in sharply from outside off, it was back of length, and it struck him just above the knee roll on the front foot in front of middle and leg. Ball-tracking shows 'umpire's call' for hitting the stumps, as the ball is clipping because of the extra bounce. Tamim has to go back. 4/1
8.5 to Mominul Haque, loud and confident appeal from the bowler, keeper, everyone for caught behind as Mominul chased this one outside off, and there was some sound! It was back of length without much bounce, Mominul chased off the back foot and the third umpire is checking if there was an edge and if Sarfraz got his gloves under it. Yes, there was an edge, yes the catch is clean, the finger has gone up. 38/2
20.4 to Mahmudullah, the bouncer has worked, Wahab has struck! 139kph, appeared to be quicker as it was a bouncer and came in sharply, there was not much room and time for Mahmudullah to react, he only managed to take evasive action and got a leading edge off the handle, which ballooned to short leg for an easy catch. 85/4
30.6 to Soumya Sarkar, Wahab gets his man now, Soumya picks out short cover. After a barrage of short ones, the length-ball does the trick. The line is outside off, Soumya wants to drive after backing away, but hits it in the air. The helmeted Azhar Ali takes a good overhead catch. 113/6
32.1 to Shuvagata Hom, Hom gone for a golden duck! Wahab greets the new man with a shortish ball outside off with extra zip. He seeks to fend it away but can only pop it to Shafiq at gully. This one is a simpler catch and Wahab is on a hat-trick. 119/7
17.3 to Imrul Kayes, oh he's struck on his third ball, that's what flight and turn can do! Tossed it up around length on middle stump, Kayes wanted to drive it down off the front foot but was beaten by the turn. The ball turned a laong way actually and hit the pads before disturbing leg stump. 69/3
27.5 to Mushfiqur Rahim, got'im with the googly, Yasir exults! He set him up with four conventional legspinners earlier, the fifth one turns in from outside off, Mushfiqur doesn't pick ip and goes back in the crease to cut, but is beaten by the turn and loses his off stump. 107/5
47.3 to Mohammad Shahid, Bangladesh have been skittled for 203. Shahadat won't bat. Yasir Shah has his third. This was tossed up around the leg-stump line, Shahid aims to nudge it perhaps over midwicket. It goes all wrong for him as he lobs it to silly-point off a leading edge. 203/9
38.3 to Taijul Islam, Hafeez strikes, this clatters into off. Pushed through, Taijul loses his balance as he goes for a crude swipe across the line. He can't connect. Hafeez's joy may translate as you miss and I hit. Bangladesh slump to 140 for 8. 140/8

Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Mohammad Hafeez, 0.4 ov), 2-25 (Sami Aslam, 12.1 ov), 3-49 (Azhar Ali, 15.3 ov), 4-107 (Younis Khan, 28.4 ov), 5-140 (Asad Shafiq, 35.1 ov), 6-195 (Misbah-ul-Haq, 41.1 ov)
0.4 to Mohammad Hafeez, Shahid sets off on a celebratory run. Fuller and with a hint of away movement outside off. Hafeez is sucked into an away-from-the-body drive and feeds an outside edge to Mushfiq. Hafeez falls caught behind to Shahid again. 0/1
12.1 to Sami Aslam, and Shahid strikes! The Mirpur crowd roars. Mahmudullah pulls off a smart, low catch at first slip. This was full and outside off, Asam is a bit squared up as he pokes feebly and edges it. Mahmudllah moved low to his right and snapped it up even as Mushfiq was diving across to his left. 25/2
28.4 to Younis Khan, return catch! Younis nips down the track, but is beaten in flight. He checks his attempted drive and lobs it back to Tajul, who dives to his left and snaffles it. 107/4
15.3 to Azhar Ali, Azhar Ali falls. Maiden Test wicket for Soumya, he has his hands aloft in joy. Back of a length and outside off, Azhar leans back and guides it straight into the hands of gully. Dolly catch for Hom. 49/3
35.1 to Asad Shafiq, leg stump knocked out! This was pushed through, spins in and keeps low. Shafiq was expecting it to bounce further and went for the pull. Missed it entirely as Hom sneaks through and splinters the leg stump. 140/5
41.1 to Misbah-ul-Haq, Misbah holes out! Pakistan have declared. Sarfraz runs back to put his gloves on. Flighted and outside off, Misbah sinks to one knee and slog-sweeps it straight down the throat of the sub fielder at deep midwicket. 195/6

Fall of wickets: 1-48 (Imrul Kayes, 11.1 ov), 2-86 (Tamim Iqbal, 22.4 ov), 3-95 (Mahmudullah, 26.2 ov), 4-121 (Shakib Al Hasan, 34.3 ov), 5-126 (Mushfiqur Rahim, 37.3 ov), 6-139 (Soumya Sarkar, 40.5 ov), 7-143 (Mominul Haque, 41.2 ov), 8-177 (Taijul Islam, 49.2 ov), 9-221 (Shuvagata Hom, 56.5 ov)
56.5 to Shuvagata Hom, Pakistan take the series 1-0 with a massive win! Shahadat will not come out to bat again. Timber. Junaid hurls in a yorker at 139.4ks, Hom backs away, looks to slash it away but can't do so. This slides under the bat and rattles the middle stump. 221/9
22.4 to Tamim Iqbal, Tamim has nicked off! This was on a length and angling away outside off, Tamim chases it and flashes with his feet glued to the crease. He only manages an outside edge that is snapped up by Sarfraz behind the wicket. Imran is pumped, he roars and gives the batsman a send off... Tamim has thrown it away. He would have been better off had he let that pass. 86/2
26.2 to Mahmudullah, The second grab does it for Younis. Wahab softened up Mahmudullah, Imran makes the incision. This was on a back of a length and outside off, he is caught on a fishing expedition, pushing away from the body. The outside edge is grazed, Younis bobbled it up on the first attempt before catching it on the second, around chest height at second slip. 95/3
11.1 to Imrul Kayes, that's a rippaah! Tossed up and spins in viciously from outside off. Kayes wants to drive it through the covers but is befuddled by the turn. The ball bursts through the bat-pad gap to hit middle. 48/1
37.3 to Mushfiqur Rahim, Mushfiq has played on! The crowd hushed into silence. This was on a length and turns away, Mushfiq seeks to defend away from the body and drags it to the off stump off an inner edge. The off bail is tipped off.. 126/5
41.2 to Mominul Haque, sharp, low catch at cover. Mominul departs for 68. This was tossed up and full outside off, he advances and drives. Asad Shafiq dives to his right and pouches it. Bangladesh hurtling to defeat in Mirpur. 143/7
49.2 to Taijul Islam, Yasir pumps his fist. This was floated outside off with some extra bounce. Tajul sinks to one knee and top-edges the attempted sweep. Sami Aslam runs across to his right from short fine leg and snaffles it, tumbling onto the ground. 177/8
40.5 to Soumya Sarkar, Soumya has been caught down the leg side. Umpire Llong's forefinger goes up. This was a harmless shortish ball directed down leg, Soumya wants to help it away fine on the leg side. But the ball brushes the glove and Sarfraz completes a good catch, diving to his right. 139/6
34.3 to Shakib Al Hasan, Hafeez strikes in his first over! He gives this more air and invites Shakib to go for a big shot. The batsman obliges, makes a trip down the track and seeks to loft it. However, he can only slice it into the hands of Wahab, who pedals back from mid-off. 121/4
