Wisden's review of the third ODI, Bangladesh v Pakistan, 2014-15

Third one-day international At Mirpur, April 22, 2015 (day/night). Bangladesh won by eight wickets. ‡Pakistan 250 (49 overs) (Azhar Ali 101, Sami Aslam 45, Haris Sohail 52); Bangladesh 251-2 (39.3 overs) (Tamim Iqbal 64, Soumya Sarkar 127*, Mushfiqur Rahim 49*). MoM: Soumya Sarkar. MoS: Tamim Iqbal. ODI debut: Sami Aslam (Pakistan).
Azhar Ali continued his fine form since assuming the captaincy with his maiden ODI hundred. He put on 91 for the first wicket with debutant Sami Aslam, a 19-year-old left-hander, and 98 for the third with Haris Sohail - but the last seven wickets could scrape together only 47. Tamim was on song again, although he was outdone by Soumya Sarkar, another left-hander, whose 127* - also a maiden ODI hundred - included six sixes. They put on 145 for the first wicket in 25.3 overs to hasten the whitewash.
