Right then, this brings us to the end of this fascinating Test series between Bangladesh and Pakistan. Both the Test matches were closely contested but in the end, we have to say that Pakistan was a better team. They have clinched the series 2-0 and have also bagged 24 WTC points on the way. We will be back with more such thrilling action and till then, goodbye and cheers!
Babar Azam, the skipper of Pakistan, says that he enjoyed his bowling and he is glad that he got his first international wicket. Adds that their openers gave them a good start and their bowlers did a terrific job. Says that even though they lost a couple of days due to rain, they wanted to dominate the game and he is very happy with the win. Credits all the groundsmen by saying that they did a good job of covering the whole ground at all times.
The Bangladesh skipper, Mominul Haque, says that they had opportunity to get better in the second innings. He adds that middle order played well but they need to work on their top order. Tells that there were some positives for them and hopefully these players can continue their form in New Zealand.
Abid Ali is the Player of the Series. He says that the pitch was not easy to bat and it was turning. He adds that they wanted to play with a positive approach and everyone backed each other. He mentions that his domestic form helped him to perform in this series.
Sajid Khan is the Player of the Match for his brilliant bowling performance. He says that his captain and team management backed him and he is very happy. Tells that it is a team effort and everyone has contributed equally for the win.
Stay tuned for the Presentation!
Earlier in this game, Pakistan batters played pretty well on the tough Dhaka pitch as four batters notched up their fifty. The rain played spoilsport for almost two whole days and that made Pakistan declare for 300. Then, it was time for Pakistan bowlers to unleash their full potential and they did that in style as they bundled out Bangladesh for 87 runs. Bangladesh followed on and lost four wickets quickly but there was some sensible batting after that but eventually, it is Pakistan who have clinched a very unlikely victory here.
For the most part of the session, Pakistan bowlers didn't look like they will get four wickets in this session. But just when all hopes were fading, Babar Azam brought himself on and broke the partnership by dismissing Mehidy Hasan. Sajid Khan took his 10-wicket haul in the next over and soon followed it up with the 11th wicket. The last wicket took some time after that but Sajid Khan again came to the party and trapped Taijul Islam in front to hand Pakistan crucial 12 WTC points from this Test.
The final session saw Shakib Al Hasan and Mehidy Hasan batting sensibly but just when it looked like Bangladesh will salvage a draw here, Babar Azam displayed his magic and took the wicket of Mehidy Hasan. The well set Shakib Al Hasan also departed in the next over and in no time they were nine down with Khaled Ahmed perishing on duck. Taijul Islam and Ebadot Hossain played out some overs but Sajid struck again and ended with 12 wickets in this Test match, to hand Pakistan a very special win.
What a Test match this has been! When two days were almost completely washed off, very few believed that this Test will get a result. But Pakistan believed and played some quality cricket and in the end, with less than half an hour remaining in this Test match, they have clinched a victory here.
Review! Taijul Islam has been given out here! He has taken a review against it. The Ball Tracker rolls in and it shows three reds. So Taijul Islam is out and Pakistan have won this Test match.

Sajid Khan To Taijul Islam OUT!
OUT! LBW! There it is! Sajid Khan gets yet another wicket and does the job for his side! What a Test match this has proved to be! This was a flatter ball, around middle and going on with the angle. Taijul Islam stays back to block but he misses and gets rapped on the pads. Sajid Khan appeals and the umpire raises his finger. Ebadot Hossain at the non-striker's end asks his partner to review it immediately. Islam obliges but the Ball tracker indicates three reds and Taijul Islam is a goner! Pakistani players are over the moon! Pakistan WIN THE MATCH BY AN INNINGS AND 8 RUNS!

DRINKS! Bangladesh have done really well to not lose anymore wickets after Tea, thanks to some sensible batting from Shakib Al Hasan and Mehidy Hasan. They will look to bat deeper into the Day and salvage a draw here. Pakistan will need to fight hard to pick four more wickets but a wicket here could just open the floodgates for them.

...DAY 5, SESSION 3...
Pakistan bowlers found it difficult to get breakthroughs in this session as Bangladesh batters finally displayed some application out there in the middle. Sajid Khan eventually got the wicket of Liton Das and there was enough turn in the pitch to keep them interested. But some resilient batting by Bangladesh after that did not allow Pakistan to make further inroads. But just at the stroke of the Tea, the run-out of Rahim has brought them back into this game now. Can Pakistan take the remaining four wickets to clinch 12 WTC points from this Test match? All questions will be finally answered in the last session of this Test match coming our way. This is Test cricket at its best. Do join us for some intriguing action in the final session of this Test match at 3:00 pm Local time ( 9:00 am GMT).
The session started with Liton Das and Rahim building up a nice partnership much to the frustration of Pakistan bowlers. But just when things were getting calmer for Bangla Tigers, Liton Das perished at the score of 45 while trying to pull a half-tracker. The experienced duo of Rahim and Shakib Al Hasan then got together and stitched together a nice partnership as they combined caution with aggression beautifully. But just at the stroke of Tea, the brain-fade moment from two batters sent Rahim back to the pavilion as he was run-out. Bangladesh still trail by 66 runs. Will the run-out cost them this Test match? We shall find out.
52.1
W
Nauman Ali To Shakib Al Hasan OUT!
OUT! RUN OUT! Oh, dear! Mushfiqur Rahim gets out just at the stroke of Tea and he would be absolutely gutted with himself! This is a huge moment in the context of this game and it is surely a body blow for Bangladesh. This was needless from Rahim and it could cost Bangladesh in the end. It was a flatter ball, on middle. Shakib Al Hasan tucks it to mid-wicket and goes for a run. Abdullah Shafique at mid-wicket collects the ball cleanly and throws it to the keeper Mohammad Rizwan who whips the bails off. Mushfiqur Rahim puts in a dive but his bat bounced off the ground and wasn't grounded before Rizwan took the bails off. The TV umpire has a good look at it and gives it out in the end. Mushfiqur Rahim walks back in anger and that will be Tea on Day 5.
They have gone upstairs for a Run-Out appeal! Mushfiqur Rahim has dived at the batter's end and can that save him? No, he has been given out! Big blow for Bangladesh.

Sajid Khan To Shakib Al Hasan
A slight mix-up but no harm done! Flatter ball, on off. Shakib Al Hasan works it to mid on and scampers through to the other end. Mushfiqur Rahim at the non-striker's end collides with the bowler but he manages to get up and reach the striker's end with a dive. The throw is a bit wayward at the keeper's end and Rahim was home.
