The spinner took 8 wickets and conceded only 42 runs against Bangladesh
Sajid Khan took 8 wickets as Pakistan bowled out Bangladesh for 87 runs in the first innings of the second Test on Wednesday and enforced the follow-on in search of victory on the final day in Dhaka.
The off-spinner managed the bowling figures of 8/42, which are the fourth-best in the history of Test cricket for Pakistan. Leading the list is legendary Abdul Qadir who took 9/56 against England back in 1987.
Resuming on 76-7, the hosts needed to reach 101 to avoid following on after Pakistan declared their first innings at 300-4 in the rain-affected encounter.
But they added just 11 runs to their overnight score as Khan and Shaheen Afridi mopped up the tail in the space of only six overs, leaving Bangladesh trailing Pakistan by 213 runs.
Khan, who claimed six wickets on the previous day, struck in his first over of the morning to trap Taijul Islam leg before for nought before Afridi bowled Khaled Ahmed, also for a duck, next over.
Shakib Al Hasan was the last man dismissed when he holed out a catch to Azhar Ali at short cover off Khan after making 33 runs, the highest in the Bangladesh innings.
