Pakistan defeated Bangladesh in the first Test in Rawalpindi on Monday, Day 4 of the match, by an innings and 44 runs taking a 1-0 lead in the two-match series as the visitors batting order collapsed.

Bangladesh were bowled out for 168 in their second innings after resuming the day on 126-6 as Pakistan’s pace and spin attack was too hot to handle despite a flat Rawalpindi stadium pitch.

Earlier today, Bangladeshi skipper Mominul Haque could not complete his fifty despite playing handsomely with five boundaries when trapped Ibw on 41 by Shaheen Afridi when play resumed on Day 4 of first Test against Pakistan in Rawalpindi.

Fast bowler Naseem Shah, who at 16 years and 359 days became the youngest bowler to take a Test hat-trick on Sunday, finished with 4-26 and was declared man of the match.

Despite Naseem being unavailable to bowl on Monday with rib pain, Pakistan mopped up the last four wickets in 90 minutes, inflicting their 10th defeat on Bangladesh in 11 matches with one draw.

Liton Das (29) and tail-ender Rubel Hossain kept Pakistan at bay for 11.5 overs before Mohammad Abbas trapped Rubel leg-before for five.

Leg-spinner Yasir Shah dismissed Das lbw and had Abu Jayed for three to finish with 4-58 and complete the win.

With the victory, Pakistan gained 60 points in the World Test Championship, taking their tally to 140 points.
