All-rounder Shakib Al Hasan let Bangladesh’s middle order in a brave resistance but could not salvage a draw as the hosts’ last wicket fell just minutes before sunset.

Shakib top-scored for Bangladesh with 63 of 130 balls and in the process made an all-around career double of 4,000 runs and 200 wickets, the quickest in history and beating a record long held by Ian Botham. But despite a 51-run partnership with Mehidy Hossain for the seventh wicket, Bangladesh’s hopes were dashed when Pakistan skipper Babar Azam trapped his teammate.

In the video shared by Pakistan Cricket Board on Twitter, skipper Babar Azam and Shaheen Shah Afridi could be walking towards the pavilion while waving to the cheering crowd. “Jubilant team, jubilant fans!” tweeted the PCB.
