Fifth One-Day International

Pakistan v Bangladesh

Utpal Shuvro

At Karachi, September 21, 2003 (day/night). Pakistan won by 58 runs. Toss: Pakistan.

The series ended as it began - with Pakistan reaching a total above 300, and the result never in question. Yasir Hameed returned after being rested at Rawalpindi and provided the anchor. He scored 82 off 107 balls, sharing a solid partnership of 95 with Mohammad Hafeez and an explosive one of 74 with Yousuf Youhana. Youhana came out blazing and hit a carefree 52 from 32 balls, taking his tally for the series to 366. In reply, Bangladesh made their highest total of the five one-dayers without ever really expecting to reach their target.

Man of the Match: Yasir Hameed.
