Bangladesh crashed to their 35th innings defeat in 73 Tests, after Pakistan’s spinners ran circles through the middle and lower order on the fourth morning in Chittagong. The result seemed inevitable right from the first day, when the hosts put on a batting horror show to fold for 135 in their first innings. They made a better fist of things in the second dig, though the pitch had turned much more difficult after baking under the sun for three days.

Their late defiance, however, only served to extend the game into its 11th session, before Pakistan completed their fifth win in nine Tests this year.That the hosts even survived until lunch was down to the opener Nazimuddin, whose approach contrasted sharply with the impatience of his top-order colleagues. He made 78 off 189 balls, taking his match tally on debut to 109, giving the hosts something to salvage from another shambolic Test match. Nazimuddin’s vigil was particularly impressive given the sheer quality of spinners he was facing.

With the rough patches on the leg-stump area opening up finally, Saeed Ajmal was lethal from round the stumps, while Abdur Rehman produced drift and sharp turn with an attacking line. Together, they made short work of a line-up that lacked the technique to survive against a spin attack far superior to their own.
