Pakistan have won here, by four wickets, in a match that did not matter much. But you have to say Pakistan were nowhere near at their best against Bangladesh. Perhaps they found it hard to sustain the intensity with nothing at stake. However, even that was enough to get past Bangladesh who batted pretty frantically, with the exception of Junaid Siddique who made 71 in his first match of the tournament.
The Man of the Match for this game is Junaid Siddique for his excellent debut.
Asharful says: "We were 10-15 runs short." He talks of his team's experiences, saying, "We've done well in patches. We beat West Indies and played decent cricket. It's a learning experience for us. I think we've had a pretty ok tournament."
Malik says: "You must give the spinners credit. They bowled superbly, putting the ball in the right places. That's why they got wickets." He adds, "I asked Afridi where he wanted to open. He said he'd like to open and that's good for us."
This is Anand Vasu, signing off from this game. Do join us for the crucial India v South Africa match that's coming up in a little while.
