Asia Cup, 2008 / Commentary

Asia Cup - 12th match, Super Four

Pakistan v Bangladesh

Pakistan won by 10 wickets (with 182 balls remaining)

Nazimudding and Tamim Iqbal walk out. Tanvir has the ball. It's the last match before the finals on Sunday. Let's have some fun.

Toss: Mohammad Ashraful has won the toss and Bangladesh will bat first. And by the way, Shoaib Malik's back as captain. The bigger news is that Shahid Afridi has been dropped. After a forgettable IPL, it seemed like the axe would fall on him anytime. Pakistan will however miss his legspinners/shooters.

Is the Karachi pitch the flattest ODI pitch in the world? Certainly appears so. Read more in The Numbers Game by S Rajesh.

Teams: I predicted yesterday that Bangladesh would want to try out their bench strength. Turns out that I was way off the mark. They've retained the same side. For Pakistan, like I mentioned above, the Afridi-Malik swap is the only change.

Pakistan: 1 Salman Butt, 2 Shoaib Malik (capt), 3 Younis Khan, 4 Mohammad Yousuf, 5 Misbah-ul-Haq, 6 Nasir Jamshed, 7 Sohail Tanvir, 8 Sarfraz Ahmed (wk), 9 Abdur Rauf, 10 Iftikhar Anjum, 11 Saeed Ajmal.

Bangladesh: 1 Tamim Iqbal, 2 Nazimuddin, 3 Mohammad Ashraful (capt), 4 Raqibul Hasan, 5 Alok Kapali, 6 Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), 7 Mahmudullah, 8 Farhad Reza, 9 Shahadat Hossain, 10 Abdur Razzak, 11 Mashrafe Mortaza.

Perhaps it wouldn't have been a bad idea for Bangladesh to try out guys like Mosharraf Hossain, Mehrab Hossain Jnr and Shahriar Nafess, who've been warming the bench from the beginning. The wait continues.

2.45 pm: In Planet Cricket, there's hardly a day left idle. It's unfortunate in the context of this tournament that there's a dead rubber, like the one today between hosts Pakistan and Bangladesh. But a formality is a formality. Good day to everybody, where ever you are, in what ever time zone. I'm Kanishkaa Balachandran, your commentator for this match. Joining me is Binoy George, who's scoring this match and Siddharth Ravindran, on bulletin.

Pakistan waited with bated breath on the result of yesterday's game between India and Sri Lanka, but as it happened, the Indian top order didn't have an off day. After the highs of a tri-series trophy, Pakistan have been forced to contend with an elimination in front of their home fans. You have to feel for them, really. Today, it's all about playing for pride.

115. In a tournament where a 300-plus total is a norm, this is an anomaly. Bangladesh, to their misfortune, were up against the most challenging batting conditions and Pakistan did their best to exploit them. The overcast conditions aided swing and seam and that rendered Anjum and Rauf at times looked unplayable. Ajmal didn't make life any easier for his doosras. Ashraful will rue his decision at the toss, for now. Join us in around 5 minutes for the chase.

Here's some trivia - Anjum's six maidens is only the second instance of a Pakistani bowler doing so in an ODI, after Sarfraz Nawaz, against England at Old Trafford in 1978.
