Bangladesh take on Pakistan in the eighth match of the Asia Cup 2014 at Mirpur on Tuesday. Bangladesh enter the match with two losses in two and they face an almighty task of entering the final. Pakistan on the other hand, have won two and lost one from their three matches so far. A win for Pakistan would seal a spot in the final in the Asia Cup.

 

But when the high-octane match gets underway, the rivalry that these nations have will overpower evrything else. Bangladesh, in the past, have beaten Pakistan on quite a few occasions, and will be looking for another proud victory on Tuesday.

 

Squads:

 

Bangladesh: Mushfiqur Rahim (c&wk), Abdur Razzak, Al-Amin Hossain, Anamul Haque, Arafat Sunny, Imrul Kayes, Mahmudullah, Mominul Haque, Naeem Islam, Nasir Hossain, Rubel Hossain, Shafiul Islam, Shamsur Rahman, Shakib Al Hasan, Ziaur Rahman
