Pakistan v Bangladesh

Pakistan won by 150 runs

Here come the players onto the field. Salman Butt and Kamran Akmal to open the innings. It will be Mortaza to bowl first up, with a slip and gully in place.

Hello and welcome to Cricinfo's live coverage of the 5th ODI at Karachi. We will go right for the toss: Pakistan won the toss and they will have a bat.

Team changes: Bangladesh are unchanged. Pakistan make three changes Naumanullah in for Bazid Khan, Younis Khan in for Fawad alam and Wahab Raz in for Sohail Khan. Naumanullah makes his debut for Paksitan, a heavy domestic scorer.

Pitch report: Hard, cracks, bit more grass on the wicket and it looks a good batting track.

Pakistan need to one more win to register their 11th successive ODI victory, which will be a record for them. Bangladesh will be playing for pride and they have to show lot of improvement for any chance in the game.

Shoaib Malik: "Winning is winning, it's not in our hands who our opponents are."

Jamie Siddons: "If we bat first and put up a total something like we posted in third game then we have a chance in the last match."
