India Clinch Series as Zaheer Bags Career Best 7-87

With four wickets off eight balls, Zaheer Khan triggered off a sensational Bangladeshi collapse as India sweeps the series with a crushing 10-wicket victory in the second and final test on Wednesday, reported AFP.

Zaheer bagged 7-87, his career best, as Bangladesh were bowled out for 312 in their second innings in the opening over after lunch on the penultimate day, with visitors needing two runs to wrap up the series, said report.

In response to Bangladesh’s 233, India had scored 544-8 in their first inning, leading by 311 runs.

India completed formality in its second innings when Bangladesh conceded two byes in the opening over bowled by left-arm spinner Shakib Al Hasan, said report.

Zaheer finished the match with 10-149 to become only the fourth Indian paceman to take 10 or more wickets in an away Test. He was named both Man of the Match and Man of the Series.

India won the opening Test by 113 runs in Chittagong last week.
