Commentary

The fact that the tenth wicket was the highest partnership in the innings speaks volumes about the miserable batting performance by Bangladesh. The sad part in all this is this capitulation is not the first time. Time and time again we have seen the batsmen throw their wicket away before getting accustomed to the wicket. No one remembers the last time Bangladesh ran a test playing nation close. Whats more saddening is that the batsmen dont seem to mend their ways, which always puts the bowlers performances into the background.

Something needs to be done about the way Bangladesh cricket or else it would be all downhill from here

Yousuf has been awarded the Man of the match award for his unbeaten century and thanks almighty for his innings and also remembers to thank the team trainer for the fitness levels.

Ashraful, Bangladesh captain laments the lack of the third seamer in the team and believes that the batsmen are doing well.

Malik, Pakistan captain thanks Bangladesh team for making the trip at the last moment and compliments his bowlers for rising up to the occasion

Please join us for the Second ODI from Faisalabad on Friday, April 11th at 10:00 GMT Till then it is good night from all of us at Cricinfo
