Bangladesh beat Pakistan and thrashed them out of the Asia cup 2018 and book their place in the final with India which will be played on Friday in Dubai.
After being bat first Bangladesh scored 239 runs in 48.5 overs. Wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim scored magnificently 99 runs. Pakistan’s new ball bowler got early success in the bowling. Junaid Khan took four wickets for Pakistan after his comeback in the one-day team. At one time Bangladesh was 12/3 but Mushfiqur helped his team with the partnership to get out of the crises.
In response Pakistani team never seen in touch with the game and managed to score only 202 runs in 50 overs. Imam ul Haq has shown class with the bat and keep the hopes alive of Pakistani team till the end but did not succeed to get over the line his team.
Men in green already facing a lot of criticism due to their bad performance in Asia cup 2018. They already lost their two games against arch-rival India and now against Bangladesh.
The main reason for these back to back losses seems the top order of Pakistani team which is not working well put pressure on middle order batsman. Pakistan needs a lot of work on their batting before the upcoming series against Australia in UAE.
