0 minutes, 41 seconds Read

Needing a little more than four runs per over, Bangladesh got a chance. But it was badly affected by Ubaid Shah, who put Pakistan on the front foot by dismissing both the openers – Ashikur Rahman Shibli (4) and Zishan Alam (19).

Ali Raza, who took 3-44, supported him in dismantling Bangladesh’s middle order before resistance from No. 10 batsman Borson. With Bangladesh’s score at 127-9, Borosan and Maroof Mridha gave the team a ray of hope by playing cautiously. However, as soon as Borosan hit a six to take the score past 150, Bangladesh again had a chance, which was ruined when Mohammad Zeeshan clean bowled Maroof Mridha to deny the Tigers the semi-final.

Shihab James was the top scorer for Bangladesh with 26 runs while Borson remained unbeaten with 21 runs. Chaudhary Rizwan scored 20 runs. Bangladesh will now play the playoff match.
