Asia Cup - Final

Bangladesh v Pakistan

Pakistan won by 2 runs

45.3

Aizaz Cheema to Mashrafe Mortaza, 2 runs, length ball and Mashrafe connects, didn't time it too well, got it over the man at midwicket for a couple

45.4

Aizaz Cheema to Mashrafe Mortaza, (no ball) 1 run, a beamer? Slipped out of his hand there, plus a single so that's two, was a slower one there and Mashrafe moved away too quickly, the ball was dying down

45.6

Aizaz Cheema to Mashrafe Mortaza, 2 runs, pitched on a length outside off, crunched through wide of deep cover for a couple more runs

Bangladesh 198/6   Mashrafe Mortaza 5* (3b)

46.3

Umar Gul to Mashrafe Mortaza, FOUR, Mashrafe pulls off a beauty, banged in short outside leg stump, shuffles across and shovels that over short fine leg, four more

46.4

Umar Gul to Mashrafe Mortaza, FOUR, Mashrafe's proving dangerous for Pakistan, pitched up outside off, moved away and drove it hard over extra cover, length ball and it gets the treatment, he's pumped up

46.5

Umar Gul to Mashrafe Mortaza, 1 leg bye, swung wildly at that slower one, didn't pick it, stole a leg-bye in the end

Bangladesh 212/6   Mashrafe Mortaza 13* (6b 2x4)

47.1

Saeed Ajmal to Mashrafe Mortaza, 3 runs, three more, superbly fielded by Azam, he ran a mile from long-off and dragged it just in, Mashrafe made room and slapped that over extra cover

47.3

Saeed Ajmal to Mashrafe Mortaza, 2 runs, moves back and swats that over extra cover for two more, Azam runs across and cuts it off

47.4

Saeed Ajmal to Mashrafe Mortaza, OUT, another twist, Mashrafe was trying to be cheeky there, Ajmal went round the stumps and tried to paddle it over short fine, couldn't, Jamshed was placed perfectly there and took a nervous catch falling ahead, effective though

Mashrafe Mortaza c Nasir Jamshed b Saeed Ajmal 18 (15m 9b 2x4 0x6) SR: 200.00

Bangladesh 218/7   Mashrafe Mortaza 18 (9b 2x4)
