Pakistan defeated Bangladesh by an innings and 8 runs in the second Test of the series. The play was only possible for two and half days due to rain and bad light but the visitors still managed to defeat the hosts.

Offspinner Sajid Khan ended with a match haul of 12-128. Bangladesh was forced to follow-on after being wrapped up for 87 in the first innings and was bowled out for 205.

Resuming on 76-7, Bangladesh was quickly dismissed for 87 and Babar Azam forced the follow-on.

Fast bowlers Shaheen Shah Afridi (2-31) and Hasan Ali (2-37) then got into act with the new ball, leaving Bangladesh 25-4.

Sajid claimed 4-86, the fourth-best individual total by a Pakistani bowler in an innings, to follow up his first-innings 8-42.

Pakistan is the first team to take 13 wickets to win on the last scheduled day of a 5-day Test match.
