Bangladesh v Pakistan

Pakistan won by 70 runs

11.6

Dolar Mahmud to Kamran Akmal, OUT, Sharp acrobatic catch from Rahim, the keeper. It was full, outside off stump and Akmal, rooted to the crease, drove hard and got a thick outside edge. The ball was traveling really fast to right of Rahim who dived to pluck it safely.

Kamran Akmal c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Dolar Mahmud 25 (54m 27b 2x4 1x6) SR: 92.59

Pakistan 75/1   Salman Butt 49* (45b 10x4)   Dolar Mahmud 2-0-13-1

12.1

Abdur Razzak to Salman Butt, OUT, Younis is run out. It spun in towards middle stump, worked to right of midwicket where Raqibul Hussai moved quickly, dived to his right to make the stop and threw at the stumps at the non-striker's ends. Razzak collected the ball in front of the stumps and broke the stumps quickly. Gone! Two in two balls. Bangladesh are getting back in to the game courtesy some fab fielding. First Rahim and now Raqibul.

Younis Khan run out 0 (5m 0b 0x4 0x6) SR: -

Pakistan 75/2   Salman Butt 49* (46b 10x4)   Abdur Razzak 1.1-0-11-0

Alok Kapali to Salman Butt, OUT, Salman holes out to long-on. The innings was moving along in singles in the recent overs and he decides to up the ante but perishes in the process. It was tossed up outside off stump and Salman swung it on a bent knee to long-on.

Pakistan 179/4   Mohammad Yousuf 59* (54b 7x4)   Alok Kapali 5.2-0-32-2

30.6

Alok Kapali to Mohammad Yousuf, OUT, Kapali is the man of the moment. Another wicket. Big one too. Yousuf is gone. Flighted loopy delivery, turning away from Yousuf who tried to drive inside-out but hit it straight to covers. The ball dipped on him and he couldn't keep it down or get under it well enough to clear the fielder.

Mohammad Yousuf c Abdur Razzak b Alok Kapali 59 (74m 56b 7x4 0x6) SR: 105.35

Pakistan 180/5   Shoaib Malik 1* (2b)   Alok Kapali 6-0-33-3

37.1

Abdur Razzak to Shoaib Malik, OUT, And in the middle, Malik has been cleaned up. He was struggling out there, unable to find his timing and has finally perished. He moved outside leg stump and tried to drive inside-out a full delivery but missed it completely.

Shoaib Malik b Abdur Razzak 9 (26m 19b 0x4 0x6) SR: 47.36

38.1

Mashrafe Mortaza to Misbah-ul-Haq, OUT, Misbah is done in by a good off cutter from Mortaza. The ball cut in from outside off, the bat came down outside the line and caught him in front. There was some noise as the ball passed the bat, Misbah suggests it might have been inside-edge but he is gone
