Naseem was named Man of the Match for his hat-trick, in which he dismissed Najmul Hossain Shanto, Taijul Islam and Mahmudullah and surpassed former Bangladesh legspinner Alok Kapali as the youngest player to achieve this feat.

Bangladesh, who had conceded a 212-run first-innings lead and had gone into stumps on the third day at 126/6, lost their last four wickets for 38 runs.

Wasim Akram took a hat-trick towards Sri Lanka within the Lahore Test in 1988-89 whereas in the identical season he took a hat-trick towards Sri Lanka in Dhaka.

Pakistan struck on the sixth ball of the day as Shaheen Afridi removed Mominul Haque.

Pakistan quick bowler Naseem Shah came to be the youngest gamer to assert a Test hat- technique after tearing with Bangladesh on day 3 of the very first Test in Rawalpindi.

Tamim Iqbal returned when the scorecard was at 53-run.

He also felt that it was unfortunate that once the batsmen got in they could not go big. Mahmudullah was caught by Haris Sohail at the last ball of that over and Naseem completed his hattrick. Liton Das resisted for 59 deliveries before he was lbw against Yasir Shah. Other than Naseem Shah, spinner Yasir Shah (17.2-3-58-4) was also among the wickets.
