Ahmed Shehzad is named the Man of the Match. That's all we have from this game. The India vs Australia game is up next.
Pakistan have been very clinical in their performance. Riding high on Shehzad's splendid ton, the spinners kept it tight and kept ticking away wickets at will, giving Bangladesh absolutely nothing away. So now, the Pakistan vs West Indies on April 1st becomes a Quarter-final.
THE HOSTS ARE KNOCKED OUT OF THE TOURNAMENT and they also make sure that now, Australia too are knocked out of the tournament! A very sad story but in all the three games and even in the qualifiers, their performances have been quite average. It all started with that loss to Afghanistan in the Asia Cup and they're yet to recover from that.
