Afridi's century flattens Bangladesh

A new-look Pakistan, led by a new-look Shahid Afridi, bowed out of the Asia Cup with little to boast about but with their reputations enhanced, while Bangladesh ended their campaign by reaffirming the gulf between them and the top-flight teams

Uff! This was one huge nail in the coffin of 50-over cricket. It has undone all the good work done by two wonderful matches between Sri Lanka and Pakistan, and Indian and Pakistan. International cricket in 2010 can't afford ODIs where one side doesn't even try to win a match for as long as 50 overs. In fact it seemed like Tamim Iqbal was rebelling against a team gameplan. Thanks for those who joined us, and I can see why not many did

Shahid Afridi is MoM and also the winning captain "I was always expecting that as a captain you should set an example. As a captain I am very happy. The coaches did a very good job. There are a few lessons to be learnt surely but we played well."

Shakib Al Hasan "They got a great start, their openers batted really well. On the other hand, our new-ball bowlers didn't bowl well. We know our strength is to not chase 385, we are not batting well in the middle overs, so our plan was to bat well in the middle overs, we did that brilliantly today. There were plus points in our batting, we need to improve our bowling and fielding."

Junaid Siddique has been given the award for the most stylish player of the day. Somehow I can't see the humour there. He also wins a 1000 dollars for being the Jodi [partnership] of the Match
