Asia Cup - Final

Bangladesh v Pakistan

Pakistan won by 2 runs

4.2

Mashrafe Mortaza to Nasir Jamshed, OUT, Jamshed goes! Early wicket for Bangladesh, was the slower one, short of a good length, made room and tried to clear the in-field on the off side but found cover where Mahmudullah took it comfortably

Nasir Jamshed c Mahmudullah b Mashrafe Mortaza 9 (22m 8b 2x4 0x6) SR: 112.50

Pakistan 16/1   Mohammad Hafeez 5* (18b 1x4)   Mashrafe Mortaza 2.2-0-11-1

5.2

Nazmul Hossain to Younis Khan, OUT, Younis Khan has been trapped lbw! Looked really close, that one angled in and nipped in after pitching, Younis moved across and closed the face and was struck in front of off , can't really tell on the first replay. We also need to check if there was an inside edge, Younis wasn't too happy. He has to go, however. Yes, there was an inside-edge, we see that on the second replay, a hint of deviation inwards.

Younis Khan lbw b Nazmul Hossain 1 (6m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

Pakistan 19/2   Mohammad Hafeez 7* (19b 1x4)   Nazmul Hossain 2.2-1-4-1

14.5

Shahadat Hossain to Misbah-ul-Haq, OUT, run-out, another wicket, Nasir Hossain is an excellent fielder, that was defended in front of him at point, Misbah took off and then hesitated, Nasir ran in from point, picked it up and aimed accurately at the non-striker's end, Misbah has to go, he was well short

Misbah-ul-Haq run out 13 (48m 23b 1x4 0x6) SR: 56.52

Pakistan 55/3   Mohammad Hafeez 29* (53b 4x4)   Shahadat Hossain 1.5-0-6-0

21.2

Abdur Razzak to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, the frustration set in and it's cost Hafeez his wicket, he struck that hard but could not get the desired elevation, got to the pitch to that flighted ball and struck it straight into the hands of mid-on where Nazmul took a sharp catch

Mohammad Hafeez c Nazmul Hossain b Abdur Razzak 40 (104m 87b 4x4 0x6) SR: 45.97

Pakistan 70/4   Umar Akmal 4* (5b)   Abdur Razzak 5.2-2-8-1

33.3

Shakib Al Hasan to Hammad Azam, OUT, A wicket at the wrong time for Pakistan, shaped up for the slog-sweep, tried to clear midwicket, that short had worked well for him, ended up getting a top-edge and Shakib ran back and judged it well

Hammad Azam c & b Shakib Al Hasan 30 (49m 37b 3x4 1x6) SR: 81.08

Pakistan 129/5   Umar Akmal 29* (42b 1x6)   Shakib Al Hasan 4.3-0-19-1

34.5

Mahmudullah to Umar Akmal, OUT, caught-behind, Pakistan in further trouble, Umar Akmal is furious, that landed on leg stump and turned further down, Umar tried to work that behind square, replays didn't show a clear contact with the bat there, it may have flicked the trouser on the way to Mushfiqur, who took it well. Plenty of doubt there but the umpire had none, he raised his finger, Pakistan in deep trouble now.

Umar Akmal c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Mahmudullah 30 (80m 45b 0x4 1x6) SR: 66.66

Pakistan 133/6   Shahid Afridi 3* (5b)   Mahmudullah 2.5-0-13-1

41.3

Shakib Al Hasan to Shahid Afridi, OUT, Afridi goes! Holes out to a full toss, came down the track to smash that over midwicket but it turned out to be a miscue, got a top-edge and Nasir at long-off ran in and took a good catch diving forward, crucial blow

Shahid Afridi c Nasir Hossain b Shakib Al Hasan 32 (32m 22b 4x4 1x6) SR: 145.45

Pakistan 178/7   Sarfraz Ahmed 9* (23b)   Shakib Al Hasan 8.3-1-32-2

44.3

Mashrafe Mortaza to Umar Gul, OUT, Gul has to go, no encore of that performance in the opening game, short on middle, got across to turn it square, closed the face too early and got a leading edge, Shakib took an easy catch at extra cover

Umar Gul c Shakib Al Hasan b Mashrafe Mortaza 4 (12m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Abdur Razzak to Saeed Ajmal, OUT, crashed into the stumps, tried to close the face on that one again, it turned away to take out middle and off, another one for Razzak, Pakistan are now nine down

Saeed Ajmal b Abdur Razzak 4 (6m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

Pakistan 206/9   Sarfraz Ahmed 27* (37b 2x4)   Abdur Razzak 9-3-24-2
