Yasir, Naseem seal innings win for Pakistan

Pakistan overwhelm Bangladesh by an innings and 44 runs in first Test

During the first Test of the ongoing Bangladesh's tour of Pakistan in Rawalpindi, Pakistan defeated Bangladesh by an innings and 44 runs to register a 1-0 lead in the two-match series.

The 16-year old, who became the youngest player to take a Test hat-trick on the third day of the Test, went off the field two balls after achieving the feat, with Mohammad Abbas completing the rest of the over.

After providing immediate first aid to worldwide cricket commentator Shamim Chowdhury, whose blood pressure shot high during Pakistan Bangladesh Test match, Rescue 1122 team received heaps of praises during live match on Monday. Bangladesh's leg-spinner AlokKapali was previously the youngest to record a Test hat trick - at 19 - also against Pakistan, in Peshawar in 2003.

Bangladesh started the fourth day on 126-6 needing another 86 runs to avoid an innings defeat with two days to play and with Mominul Haque and Najumul Hossain Shanto on the crease. Pakistan's innings ended in the second session of the day.

Pakistani sensation Naseem Shah in a recent interview revealed that bowling coach of the national team, Waqar Younis helped him a great deal to improve when it comes to the fast bowling.

"Pakistan bowled superbly and exploited our weaknesses and that hat-trick changed the game completely to open Pakistan's victory path".


The second Test will be played in Karachi from April 5-9. After picking up just one wicket in the first innings, Shah came back strongly in the second innings and made headlines.

Pakistan were bowled out for 445 in their first innings.

They will also play a one-day global in Karachi (April 3) before the second Test.

Naseem Shah sings the praises of Waqar Younis for making him an exceptional bowler:Naseem Shah. But losing 4 wickets in 2 runs now Bangladesh were waiting for a big loss.

It is to be noted that Bangladesh recently played their maiden Day-Night Test against India in November at Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Mominul and Liton Das will try and build for Bangladesh.
