Azhar Ali credits bowlers for Rawalpindi Test victory

Pakistan's Naseem Shah has become the youngest player to take a Test hat trick

Bangladesh's leg-spinner Alok Kapali was previously the youngest to record a Test hat trick - at 19 - also against Pakistan, in Peshawar in 2003.

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.

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.

Hello and welcome to the live blog of the fourth day of the first Test between Pakistan and Bangladesh.

The second Test will be played in Karachi from April 5-9. Pakistan are now at No. 4 in the points table. In response, Pakistan coasted on centuries from Shan Masood and Babar Azam, and fifties from Asad Shafiq and Haris Sohail to rack up 445, before their bowlers ensured they wouldn't have to bat again. Bangladesh and West Indies are the only two teams who are yet to get among the points in the World Test Championship.

The reality is that I am happy and I look forward to what is coming, and even more for what is coming next season. I'm there to work, to do what the manager needs me to do and, to be honest, I'll play anywhere.

Saif, playing his first Test, was on a pair after his second-ball duck in the first innings but he started confidently to reach 16 with four boundaries before he was bowled by Naseem. The onus was on Mominul Haq (41) to try to erase the deficit but the Bangladesh skipper fell lbw to Shaheen Shah Afridi in the very first over of the day. Shanto was trapped by LBW in the fourth ball of that over. This becomes Bangladesh's sixth defeat in 14 months, including their fifth by an innings.

"I wanted to do something that people remember about me and this is a special achievement for which I thank (the) Almighty", Naseem said after the match.

As for Pakistan, they have already played four D/N Tests. They finished the day with 342 runs for 3 wickets.

Earlier, Pakistan lost seven wickets either side of lunch with Sohail holding the innings together. "It was a flat wicket and our batting was quite disappointing", he said.

Length ball from Abbas and it came back in a bit.
