A spinner-dominated game, not surprising for a game in Bangladesh, but the hosts will be disappointed at not being able to put up a tougher fight after restricting Pakistan. The first boundary in the chase didn't come until the ninth over, they lost three wickets early and found it difficult to get going on a slow pitch. Pakistan continue their good run, another win to their name. A disappointment for a near-capacity crowd that came to watch this. Join us in a bit for the presentation.

Mohammad Hafeez is the Man of the Match: "Thanks to Almighty Allah. In every second game, some guys come up and give some match-winning performances. The management and captain have given me the confidence by giving me the new ball. The ball wasn't coming on to the bat and we had to take singles and rotate the strike. We put them under pressure and got the result we wanted."

Hafeez made 25 and picked up two wickets in a miserly spell.

Mushfiqur: "It was a tough wicket to bat on. Pakistan are playing very consistent cricket and it'll be tough to beat them, but if are boys are up for it, we should be able to do it. It will be very difficult to beat them on pitches like these, they are one of the best sides at the moment. Nasir Hossain played very well."

Misbah: "We're really doing well, it's a good time for the team. It's good to have this kind of a team, and we're enjoying the experience. The way everyone's responding, with the bat and ball, everyone's performing. I had a look at the wicket, I thought 150 might be a good score but as it turned out, 130-plus was a good score. The openers started well, and the guys batted well in the middle overs. We lost two or three quick wickets, though. It was a tough wicket to bat on. When the tracks are good, we can really make out what the other team is like. The Bangladesh crowds support everybody, and support good cricket and we're happy to be playing here."

Many thanks for joining in, folks. Do tune in to the next game, the first ODI of the three-match series, on December 1. Do take care, goodnight and see you soon.
