Bangladesh v Pakistan

At Dhaka, January 12, Pakistan won by nine wickets. Toss: Pakistan.

Pakistan crushed Bangladesh with 16 overs to spare. Again, fog had intervened, reducing the game to 41 overs. When Rashid Latif asked Bangladesh to bat, they could not last even that long. The spinners, led by Saqlain Mushtaq, tied them up so that only Mohammad Rafiq reached 20. Saeed Anwar then hit 13 fours in an unbeaten 73 from 69 balls as Pakistan coasted into the final.

Man of the Match: Saqlain Mushtaq.
