Pakistan won by 21 runs

10.5

Aizaz Cheema to Nazimuddin, OUT, Nazimuddin goes, short and wide and it's slashed hard, flies off the outside edge and Umar Gul at third man back-pedals and takes it over his head, judged really well a few yards inside the ropes

Nazimuddin c Umar Gul b Aizaz Cheema 30 (41m 33b 4x4 1x6) SR: 90.90

Bangladesh 45/1   Tamim Iqbal 15* (32b 2x4)   Aizaz Cheema 0.5-0-2-1

20.5

Shahid Afridi to Jahurul Islam, OUT, Jahrul admonishes himself for that lapse, flighted and he was tempted, bent low and tried to slog-sweep that into the stands, it went on straight, he missed and that crashed into the stumps

Jahurul Islam b Shahid Afridi 23 (40m 31b 3x4 0x6) SR: 74.19

Bangladesh 90/2   Tamim Iqbal 35* (61b 2x4 1x6)   Shahid Afridi 3.5-0-13-1

22.3

Shahid Afridi to Mushfiqur Rahim, OUT, too close to cut, he'd tried doing that off his first ball against Afridi as well, fired in quick from Afridi and that kept low, he was trying to cut that, misjudgement on his part there, he missed and off stump was pegged back

Mushfiqur Rahim b Shahid Afridi 3 (8m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

Bangladesh 100/3   Tamim Iqbal 42* (66b 3x4 1x6)   Shahid Afridi 4.3-0-19-2

28.3

Mohammad Hafeez to Tamim Iqbal, OUT, Tamim goes, another batsman goes trying to cut the ball, Hafeez angles that in from round the wicket, Tamim waited for it and was trying to run it past short third man, gets an inside edge onto the stumps, Pakistan have struck a crucial blow

Tamim Iqbal b Mohammad Hafeez 64 (116m 89b 6x4 1x6) SR: 71.91

Bangladesh 135/4   Shakib Al Hasan 13* (13b)   Mohammad Hafeez 7.3-1-33-1

28.4

Mohammad Hafeez to Mahmudullah, OUT, Bangladesh are sliding now, Mahmudullah goes! Tossed up and he shapes up to play the sweep first ball, missed, it struck him on middle and leg, it did turn down and would have slightly missed leg stump as the replays show. The umpire, however, felt otherwise

Mahmudullah lbw b Mohammad Hafeez 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Bangladesh 135/5   Shakib Al Hasan 13* (13b)   Mohammad Hafeez 7.4-1-33-2

43.3

Umar Gul to Nasir Hossain, OUT, bowled'im! Gul has fought back by castling Nasir, was fired in towards middle and leg, Nasir moved across and tried to close the face on that one, was probably done in for pace there, ricocheted off the pads onto the stumps

Nasir Hossain b Umar Gul 47 (70m 49b 3x4 1x6) SR: 95.91

Bangladesh 224/6   Shakib Al Hasan 52* (53b 3x4)   Umar Gul 7.3-0-50-1

44.1

Saeed Ajmal to Abdur Razzak, OUT, Razzak has thrown it away, that was a mindless slog, tossed up on middle from round the wicket, took his left leg out of the way and tried to thrash it over deep midwicket, missed and was bowled

Abdur Razzak b Saeed Ajmal 1 (6m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Bangladesh 228/7   Shakib Al Hasan 53* (54b 3x4)   Saeed Ajmal 8.1-0-38-1

44.6

Saeed Ajmal to Mashrafe Mortaza, OUT, bowled'im, another one goes, bowled by the doosra! Shakib is being left stranded, the crowd is stunned into silence, tossed up and Mashrafe's eyes lit up, landed on middle and spun the other way, he was looking to hit that through the line but missed, it knocked back off

Mashrafe Mortaza b Saeed Ajmal 1 (4m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Bangladesh 230/8   Shakib Al Hasan 54* (56b 3x4)   Saeed Ajmal 9-0-40-2

45.5

Umar Gul to Shafiul Islam, OUT, can't keep that inswinging yorker out, superb ball from Gul, that looked out to the naked eye, swung in and Shafiul was caught on the toe, would have gone on to hit middle and leg as the replay confirms, Shafiul was too late in bringing his bat down, he has to go back

Shafiul Islam lbw b Umar Gul 1 (4m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Bangladesh 235/9   Shakib Al Hasan 58* (59b 3x4)   Umar Gul 8.5-0-58-2

48.1

Umar Gul to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, bowled'im! Pakistan have won, Gul came over the wicket, bowled it on a good length and he swung mightily at that one, had no choice, got an inside edge onto the pads and then onto the stumps. The umpires want a replay to check if that was a no-ball, it wasn't.

Shakib Al Hasan b Umar Gul 64 (130m 66b 4x4 0x6) SR: 96.96

Bangladesh 241/10   Shahadat Hossain 0* (7b)   Umar Gul 9.1-0-58-3
