Pakistan, in course of their epic win against Bangladesh in the eighth match of Asia Cup 2014, which has also ensured their spot in the final of the tournament, have now registered their highest successful run chase in ODI cricket, scoring 328 for seven in 49.5 overs in their chase of 327.

Pakistan’s earlier highest successful run chase in ODIs was 322 for six, which they recorded against India in Mohali in November 2007. Four of their seven successful run chases in ODIs in excess of 300 have come against India, but this is their first against Bangladesh.

Bangladesh batted out of their skins in the first innings, amassing the huge total of 326 for three in their quota of 50 overs. Their opener, Anamul Haque scored a wonderful hundred as all the other top-order batsmen supported him with fifties (Shakib-Al-Hasan was not out on 44).

They started well in the second innings as well, bowling good lines and keeping the Pakistanis in check till Shahid Afridi arrived in the crease and slammed a 25-ball 59 to turn the match on its head. He hit seven sixes and two fours during his power-packed innings.

Fawad Alam played the anchor role as he scored a fine fifty to guide Pakistan home.
