Disciplined bowling and outstanding effort in the field helped Bangladesh defeat Pakistan by 37 runs in the final Super Over encounter at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. By the virtue of the win, Bangladesh entered the final of the 2018 Asia Cup and will now face defending champions India on Friday. Defending a small total, Bangladesh restricted Pakistan to 202/9 in 50 overs. Chasing a tricky target of 240, Pakistan got off to a poor start losing first three wickets inside first five overs. Although Shoab Malik and Imam-ul-Haq steadied Pakistan's inning (67-run partnership) after the early debacle but Bangladesh skipper Mashrafe Mortaza took a brilliant catch of Malik to bring his team back into the game. Imam remained solid at one end but wickets continued to tumble from the other. Eventually Imam crumbled under pressure getting stumped off Mahmudullah for 83 runs. Mustafizur Rahman was the most impressive bowler for Bangladesh, claiming 4/43. Along with Rehman, Mehidy Hasan grabbed two wickets while Rubel Hossain, Mahmudullah and Soumya Sarkar bagged a wicket each. (SCORECARD)

16:10 IST: Hello and welcome to the live commentary from the Super Four clash between Pakistan and Bangladesh. 

Eariler, in the first innings, Bangladesh posted 239 before bundling out in the 49th over. Mushfiqur Rahim (99) and Mohammad Mithun stitched a crucial 144-run partnership for the fourth wicket after Bangladesh got off to a troubled start. Mashrafe Mortaza after winning the toss elected to bat first but his team got off to a horrible start, losing three top-order batsmen inside the first five overs. Soumya Sarkar (0), Mominul Haque (5) and Liton Das (6) got out in quick succession, leaving their side reeling at 12/3 after 4.2 overs in the must-win game. Post the initial setback, Mushfiqur, along with Mithun (60) stitched a composed partnership taking their team out of trouble. Both batsmen notched up their respective half-centuries and played against Pakistan spinners superbly in the middle overs. Bangladesh were inching towards a decent total but bowlers bounced back for Pakistan, dismissing batsmen at crucial intervals. Big hitters like Mahmudullah (25) and Mashrafe Mortaza (13) failed to capitalize on a solid platform provided by Rahim and Mithun as the team got bundled out in 48.5 overs. For Pakistan, left-arm pacer Junaid Khan claimed 4/19 in his comeback match while Shaheen Shah Afridi and Hasan Ali grabbed two wickets each restricting Bangladesh to a relatively low total.

Bangladesh skipper Mashrafe Mortaza won the toss and elected to bat first against Pakistan in the final Super Four encounter of the 2018 Asia Cup at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. Bangladesh have gone in with three changes for the match. Shakib Al Hasan misses out with a fractured finger. Soumya Sarkar, who is back in the Bangladesh team will replace Nazmul Hossain Shanto. Rubel Hossain and Mominul Haque come back into the side. On the other hand, Pakistan have gone in with one change. Junaid Khan comes in for Mohammad Amir. The winner of this game will meet title holders India in Friday's final in Dubai.

After facing a humiliating 9-wicket defeat against arch-rivals India, Pakistan would want to make a mark when they face Bangladesh in their third and final Super Four encounter of Asia Cup 2018 at Sheikh Zayed stadium in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday. On the other hand, Bangladesh will be coming into this match with a narrow 3-run victory over Afghanistan. As far as batting is concerned, surprisingly Bangladesh seem to have the upper hand. Whereas Pakistan's batting line-up has not looked promising, except Shoaib Malik.

Both the teams have been disappointing with their bowling attack. Pakistan bowlers could not manage to take any wicket in the game against India. The only wicket they got was of Shikhar Dhawan, but that was a run-out. This battle between two mercurial sides will be an interesting watch. The winner of this match will meet India in the final at Dubai International Stadium on Friday.


Bangladesh: Liton Das, Nazmul Hossain Shanto, Mohammad Mithun, Mushfiqur Rahim(w), Shakib Al Hasan, Imrul Kayes, Mahmudullah, Mashrafe Mortaza(c), Mehidy Hasan, Mustafizur Rahman, Nazmul Islam, Rubel Hossain, Abu Hider Rony, Soumya Sarkar, Mominul Haque, Mosaddek Hossain, Ariful Haque
