Pakistan win first Test against Bangladesh by innings and 44 runs

Pakistan won the first Test against Bangladesh by an innings and 44 runs at Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium in Rawalpindi on Monday (Feb 10).

Pakistan thus secured a 1-0 lead in the two-match Test series. The second match will be played in Karachi from April 5-9.

Bangladesh were bowled out for 168 in their second innings after resuming the day on 126-6.

On Sunday, teenage paceman Naseem Shah became the youngest player to record a Test hat trick as Pakistan closed in on victory against the visitors. He finished with 4-26. Shah was awarded the Man of the Match.

Bangladesh was originally scheduled to play three Twenty20 Internationals and two Test matches, but agreed to split the tour into three phases because it did not want to stay in Pakistan for a longer duration due to security concerns.

Bangladesh will return to Pakistan in April for a one-off One-Day International (April 3) and the second and final Test (April 5-9) at the National Stadium in Karachi.

Pakistan earlier won the T20 series 2-0 last month at Lahore, with the third game abandoned because of rain.
