Twitter goes mad on Bangladesh win over Pakistan

It’s the third time the Tigers have qualified for Asia Cup finals (second instance in ODI Asia Cups). Bangladesh elected to bat first at the toss and made three changes including Soumya Sarkar, Mominul Haque and Rubel Hossain in the XI. Shakib Al Hasan was ruled out with fractured finger.

Pakistan finished off Bangladesh’s innings for 239 runs in 48.5 overs as lower-order couldn’t contribute much. Only Mahmudullah Riyad had a reasonable score – 25. Skipper Mashrafe Bin Mortaza made run-a-ball 13. [Click here to get full scorecard of the match]

Opening bowlers Mehidy Hasan Miraz and Mustafizur Rahman helped Bangladesh make a good start with the ball taking three wickets for 18 runs early in Pakistan’s run chase. Imam-ul-Haq and experienced Shoaib Malik then put on 67-run partnership.

Malik was dismissed 30 off 51 by Rubel. Mashrafe took a stunning catch to dismiss Malik. Meanwhile Asif Ali hit 47-ball 31 during a 71-run seventh-wicket stand with Imam.

In the 41st over, Mahmudullah finally got rid of Imam, who made 83 runs from 105 deliveries hitting just 2 fours and a six. Pakistan slipped down from the match as they could not score more than 202/9. Shaheen did enough to deny Mustafizur a five-wicket haul.

Mustafizur scalped 4 for 43 in his 10 overs. Miraz took two wickets. Soumya took the only wicket of Shadab Khan while Mashrafe remained wicket less.
