And with that, Bangladesh topple to the bottom of the Group 2 table. Their run-rate is -2.75. This is a tough group to survive and it is very likely run-rate will be deciding who goes through. Mashrafe Mortaza and his side have a lot of thinking to do. Lots of analysis heading your way from ESPNCricinfo's Match Day, which will be live at 7.00. That's only minutes from now. So refresh the scorecard page and catch up with Sanjay Manjrekar and Ian Chappell. But from the commentary team, it's goodbye and thank you for joining us.

Khair Nassaz: "Visibly huge difference between Bangladesh teams with and without Mustafizur Rahman."

Karan: "I hope the ad for India vs Pakistan game is ceased with immediate effect. This Pakistani line up looks threatening. Lets not invite memes."

6.43 pm There will be plenty spoken about the Pakistan batsmen, and rightly so. But this bowling attack have looked a superb batting track in the face and suckerpunched it with their rapid pace and unflinching accuracy. No was offered to the Bangladesh batsmen. Cramped up and crumbled up, Bangladesh were out of it by the halfway stage. Only Sabbir looked like threatening the total, but Shakib's fifty may work for them leading into the tournament.

For Pakistan, Amir took a wicket in his first over for the seventh time in his T20 career, opening up the stage for Afridi to come in with his variety of leggies, offies, seam-up and googlies - 2 for 27 and 49 off 19 balls. Shoo in for the Man of the Match, and here he is.

"My performances play a key role, but I was hungry. I was keen to perform well for my country in this event," says Afridi. "Its a big event as captain, as senior player, I had to lead by example. I spoke to the coach and he said okay. I love to give chances to the rest of the batsmen, but sometimes. I think from the last two three series, the batsman struggled to find runs. First six overs was important and Hafeez and Shehzad did very well. That was what we missed in the batting, the partnerships. Openers are very important, Shehzad and even Sharjeel can be very attacking too, If he stays first six overs, the team will have 50-60. I expect them to perform well, as a captain. I don't want to talk about the past, we should learn from our mistakes and India have been playing good cricket, even with the last loss. Captaincy is not an easy job, but when the team gives you 100 percent, I enjoy it. People expect me to bat and ball as well and I enjoy both"

"Two hundred is always difficult with Pakistan bowling attack. And after six overs it was almost impossible. Shakib batted very well and we got 150, so its not that bad," Mortaza says. "We have to bowl better, we didn't bowl well today. First six overs we couldn't get much runs with the bat either. You can't practice much, you have to be mentally strong. With Australia's batting, it will be hard and Bangalore wicket will be flat. Bowling group must bring better plans. Mustafiz is getting better, hopefully he will be back"

Mohammad Amir to Mashrafe Mortaza, 1 leg bye, beaten on the slower ball this time. Mash will have to stow away those lap sweeps. Tame leg bye

Mohammad Amir to Mashrafe Mortaza, FOUR runs, that's stunning too. Amir goes for the yorker, just outside off, and Mash gets down low with it and steers it between backward point and short third man. Brilliant cricket

Mohammad Amir to Shakib Al Hasan, 1 run, superb strength in his wrists. He just stands on leg stump and then whirls his bat against a near-yorker on middle and the ball scampers away to deep square leg

Mohammad Irfan to Mashrafe Mortaza, SIX runs, ooh, that's huge! Irfan errs by bowling length, even as he followed Mash making room for himself. Heaved straight down the ground

Mohammad Irfan to Mashrafe Mortaza, no run, how is the offcutter rated at 137 kph? It sticks in the pitch, turns across the closed face of Mashrafe's bat and just bounces over the middle and off stumps

Mohammad Irfan to Mohammad Mithun, OUT, slower short ball, Mithun looks to glide it away to third man. Perhaps he was only wanting to chip it, but it carries all the way to the fielder there. Amir takes a fine catch, but the umpires are asking for a double-check on the front foot. It appears touch and go, I can't quite see anything behind the line. The heel is on it at best, but the umpire disagrees. It's out!

Mohammad Amir to Mushfiqur Rahim, OUT, That's the slower one and its befuddled Mushfiq. It was pitched short to tempt the batsman to go across the line, and when it sticks in the pitch longer, the top edge results. Clever bowling, and Sarfraz backs it up

Mohammad Amir to Shakib Al Hasan, 1 run, another short ball, Shakib goes for the pull again and has mistimed it awfully. Shehzad runs in off the midwicket boundary and shells a relatively simple catch. Apologies after the fact
