Pakistan complete crushing victory
Abdur Rehman claimed match figures of 7-97 as Pakistan completed an innings and 184-run triumph over Bangladesh in the first Test at Chittagong.
Starting the day 134 for four, Bangladesh were bowled out for 275 as Rehman returned 4-88 from 30 economical overs to add to his 3-9 in the first innings and was accompanied by Saeed Ajmal and Aizaz Cheema, who both took two wickets apiece.
Shakib al Hasan compiled 51 but when he departed, only Mushfiqur Rahim provided any real resistance with 49 as Bangladesh slumped to their 35th innings defeat in 73 Tests.
The hosts added 24 before losing Shakib, trapped lbw by Rehman moments after completing his ninth Test half-century.
Mushfiqur helped Nazimuddin move the score past 200 before the latter became Rehman's second victim of the morning, departing for 78 when he was caught at mid-off by Ajmal.
Moments later, Mahmudullah was bowled by Ajmal for a duck as Pakistan closed in on victory, but Mushfiqur progressed to the lunch interval on 34 in the company of Elias Sunny.
Sunny had got off the mark with an adventurous six over long-on and edged the third ball after lunch for four before settling down.
Mushfiqur took two boundaries off Ajmal but fell one short of his half-century when he was trapped plumb in front by Rehman’s arm ball.
A Shahadat Hossain boundary took the deficit below 200 and he found the ropes twice more before spooning a leading edge to Umar Gul at cover off Cheema eight deliveries after the new ball was taken.
With Rubel Hossain absent hurt, Sunny was left unbeaten on 20 as Pakistan took a 1-0 series lead ahead of the second and final game at Mirpur from Saturday.
