3.45pm Right. That's it, then, from all of us. All the quarter-final match-ups have been confirmed. The first quarter-final, Bangladesh v Nepal, will be played tomorrow. Do join us for that. Until then, goodbye!

Ali Imtiaz: "Love to see this young kids captaincy. That's the way to use his premium bowlers when you need a wickets. Some one tells Azhar Ali to learn the some tips from this young kid. Its not important you win or lose but surely you show your presence." -- A bit harsh on Azhar Ali, but yes, impressive captaincy from Zeeshan. Liked how he kept an extra fielder in the circle for the spinners in the middle overs, and also had a slip in for large parts of the game.

Hasan Mohsin is the man of the match. "I just played normal cricket, I was trying to play every ball on merit," he says. "I think we had enough total for our team. Randika and Silva played very well in the middle, but we [managed to pull off the win]."

3.40pm Pakistan finish top of Group B. They will face West Indies in the quarter-finals, and Sri Lanka will meet England. Excellent display with the ball. Sri Lanka will think they could have won this had Kamindu Mendis and Wanidu Hasaranga not holed out at a crucial stage. And before that, Asalanka and Ashan got out to soft dismissals as well. An excellent match to end the group stages.

Shadab to Asitha Fernando, OUT

and Pakistan have won it! Shadab rips a legbreak from outside off, slightly fuller than the previous one, and that's enough to find the edge to slip

Shadab to Nimesh, OUT

got him! Shadab sees him jumping out of his crease and shortens his length wide of off stump. Nimesh reaches out to jab at it and the ball turns just enough to beat his outside edge. Easy stumping for the keeper

back of a length, turning in from outside off, goes back and across and tucks it gently into the leg side

Ahmad Shafiq to Silva, no run

tossed up slow on middle and leg, clipped to short fine leg. Went straight to the fielder and the non-striker ran out of his crease. Sent back, he would have been out had Shafiq collected the throw cleanly, but he fumbled, allowing him home

Sri Lanka need 35 from 36. Only two wickets to go. Shafiq comes back into the attack.
