Pakistan take this easily. A handsome margin of 50 runs.. The win was set up by a beautiful unbeaten century from Ajmal Shehzad and once they had 190 on the board, it was always going to be difficult for Bangladesh batsmen against bowlers of quality..Gul picked three, the spinners struck whenever Bangladesh looked for big hits.. Bangladesh's loss means Australia are knocked out now and the winner of the match between Pakistan and West Indies two days from now will be a quarter final.

Mushfiqur says, "Razaak and Shakib bowled really well, but other bowlers didn't back them up. Those two overs cost almost sixty runs. When you are chasing a big target, you need someone from top four to bat all the way, but that didn't happen today."

Mohammad Hafeez says, "It is a great effort from the boys. Everyone knew how important these games were. A special knock from Ahmed Shehzad. He was a little under pressure before the game, but the management gave him the support ... He has all the shots and today he showed it in his game."

Ahmed Shehzad is the Man of the Match. He says, "For me it's very important to follow the team plans. I didn't want to let the team down. I stuck to my basics and delivered. I had a very good start and thought i can bat through the innings."

Well that's all from this match. Another match starting in roughly half an hour.. See you there. Ciao ciao

Umar Gul to Mahmudullah, 1 run

fuller delivery, cracked down to long off for a single..

Umar Gul to Mortaza, 1 leg bye

looks to paddle this one fine on the leg side, but gets hit on the pads.. Gul gives him a good proper stare as he walks back to his run-up

Umar Gul to Mortaza, no run

first moves to the leg side, then over to the off side as he tries to ramp it over his shoulder.. it's a good sharp bouncer and he fails to make contact

Umar Gul to Mortaza, FOUR runs

this time it's the slower ball, but Mashrafe targets the third man area again.. Allows the ball to come to him, then ramps it fine on the off side

Umar Gul to Mortaza, FOUR runs

oh this is beautifully played by Mortaza! It's very good yorker, but the batsman manages to get his bat down in time to run it down fine on the off side

Umar Gul to Mahmudullah, 1 run

he gets an inside edge to backward square leg as looks to heave this full delivery

Last over.. Chance for Gul to add another one to his figures..

end of over 199 runs

too quick for the batsman as he looks to pull the back of length delivery to the leg side, ends up playing it to mid off
