Pakistan clinched a dramatic final against Bangladesh to lift the Asia Cup 2012.

Pakistan were restricted to a modest 236 for nine but held their nerve to stop the spirited hosts at 234 for eight, shattering Bangladeshi hopes of notching up their maiden Asia Cup title.

Earlier, Bangladesh halted Pakistan within a reachable target with the help of some fine bowling.

But some lacklustre bowling by Shahdat Hossain towards the end and useful contributions from Shahid Afridi (32) and wicket-keeper Sarfaraz Ahmed (46 not out) propelled Pakistan to 236 for nine.
