Zaheer casts spell on Bangla

Zaheer Khan sparked a sensational Bangladeshi collapse with four wickets off eight balls as India swept the series with a crushing 10-wicket win in the second and final Test yesterday.

The left-arm seamer bagged a career-best 7-87 as Bangladesh were bowled out for 312 in their second innings in the opening over after lunch on the penultimate day, leaving the visitors needing two runs to wrap up the series.

The hosts had conceded a 311-run lead after India scored 544-8 declared in their first innings in reply to their opponents’ 233.

India, which won the opening Test by 113 runs in Chittagong last week, completed the formality when Bangladesh conceded two byes in the opening over bowled by captain Shakib Al Hasan.
