Anamul Haque has been dismissed after scoring a century against Pakistan in the eighth match of the Asia Cup 2014 at Mirpur. This was his second century in One-Day Internationals (ODIs). He struck  six fours and four sixes so far in his innings. Bangladesh are at 205 for two after 40 overs. Anamul skied a length delivery from Saeed Ajmal towards deep mid-wicket. Ahmed Shehzad took the catch and Anamul departed for 100 off 132 deliveries.

 

Mominul Haque is batting on 33 and Musffiqur Rahim is on zero. Imrul Kayes was the first wicket to fall for 59 off 75 deliveries. He struck five fours and two sixes. The opening partnership was worth 150 runs. Mominul came in and immediately started scoring freely. The current stand is worth 54 runs for the second wicket.

 

Earlier, Abdur Rehman created a dubious world record by registering completed figures of 0-0-8-0 in an international cricket match. The Pakistan left-arm spinner bowled three above the waist no-balls in-a-row.

 

The hosts made five changes to their side that lost to Afghanistan. Shakib Al Hasan, Kayes, Mahmudullah, Shafiul Islam and Al-Amin Hossain have been included in the starting XI.

 

Pakistan also made two changes from the side that beat India. Opener Sharjeel Khan sat out with an injury and was replaced by Fawad Alam. Abdur Rehman comes in for Junai Khan.
