This is a crucial game for them as they have to win this match at any cost to stay alive in the tournament. LIVE CRICKET SCORECARD: Bangladesh vs Pakistan, Asia Cup T20 2016, Match 8 at Dhaka.

On the other hand, hosts Bangladesh have made a bold statement in the ongoing tournament when they beat Sri Lanka quite convincingly. They had earlier beaten UAE and with two wins in the kitty, they are the prime contenders to the second finalist’s spot. India have already qualified for the final. Though Bangladesh will be without the services of their star bowler Mustafizur Rahman in this crucial encounter against Pakistan, the return of Tamim Iqbal at the top of the order will bolster their batting. Another left-armer, Abu Hider is expected to replace Rahman while Tamim will come in for Mohammad Mithun. एशिया कप टी20 2016: पाकिस्तान बनाम बांग्लादेश (लाइव ब्लॉग)

Soumya Sarkar is the Man-of-the-Match for his 48-ball 48. We have two more matches remaining, which are of course inconsequential now, with Bangladesh setting up a final date with India on March 6. India will play UAE tomorrow while Pakistan and Sri Lanka will play for some pride on Friday. That’s all from here! Do join us tomorrow. Ciao!

Don’t be surprised if Pakistan make wholesale changes to their World T20 squad. Sharjeel, Khurram, Afridi himself and last but not the least, Sami have been disappointing to say the least.


LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Bangladesh 131/5 in 19.1 overs: That’s it! Bangladesh are in final! Mahmudullah finishes it off in style. He hits a full-toss being bowled on the middle stump for a boundary with utter ease. The winning shot triggers wild celebrations. The Bangladeshi players are out in the middle. Crazy scenes here; the players form a huddle, slide on the park and do all sorts of stuff here. The crowd has erupted! Sheikh Haseena is happy too. Don’t be surprised if she declares a national holiday tomorrow. BATTING: Mahmudullah 22(15), Mashrafe Mortaza 12(7).

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Bangladesh 127/5 in 19 overs: Sami comes in. Can he redeem for his costly mistake? NO he does not. In fact, he commits another sin. Bowls a no-ball, and it’s almost a comedy-of-errors here! The fielder caught it and threw it high in the air instead of just returning it at the bowler’s end. The tension is gripping the entire stadium, as the anxious crowd eagerly awaits the result of the contest. Hang on, what has Sami done? With nine remaining off seven, he bowls another NO-BALL. What’s worse, it goes for a boundary. Poor man, he has given 15 off the crucial over. Mis-fielded in the previous over too. Don’t think he is going back to Pakistan. BATTING: Mahmudullah 18(14), Mashrafe Mortaza 12(7).

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Bangladesh 112/5 in 18 overs: A huge team huddle in the middle as Pakistan ponder on who bowls the 18th over. The ball is being given to Aamer, who does not disappoint. He cleans up Shakib, who was trying to hit it behind the legs. A frustrated Shakib breaks the stumps, but immediately apologises. With 26 required off 16, skipper Mortaza promotes himself ahead of Mithun. And what a move! He whacks two boundaries off next two balls. The first one could have just been a single, but a mis-field by Sami gives a boundary instead. The next ball, banged in short at great pace, goes to the boundary too. Mortaza was trying to save himself, but was lucky to get a four. Next two balls are dot. Aamer ends the over and kicks in the air in frustration. 18 needed off 12 now! BATTING: Mahmudullah 9(9), Mashrafe Mortaza 8(4).

OUT! Shakib Al Hasan b Aamer 8(13)

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Bangladesh 104/4 in 17 overs: Irfan comes back into the attack. Shakib takes a single on the first ball and gives strike to Mahmudullah, who ends the boundary drought with a huge six over the long-off boundary. What stood apart about that shot was the fact that Mahmudullah hit it off the back foot. It was stand and delivered, punched effortlessly. Speaks volumes about his immense strength. Irfan makes a comeback of sorts, as he gives away just two runs off the next four balls. BATTING: Shakib Al Hasan 8(11), Mahmudullah 9(9)

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Bangladesh 95/4 in 16 overs: Sami is back now, and though he has been bowling decently, Pakistan need wickets from him. The over concedes five runs and a huge lbw appeal off the last ball against Mahmudullah. It looked out at the onset, but there was a big edge. Sami is unlucky here to miss out on a wicket, so are Pakistan. The match is still going down to the wire. If Bangladesh leave it for too late; even 8 odd runs in the last over, Aamer may prevent them from scoring. So, it’s going to be exciting from here on. BATTING: Shakib Al Hasan 7(9), Mahmudullah 2(5)

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Bangladesh 90/4 in 15 overs: OUT!! With the Anwar Ali-card not working in this game, Afridi throws the ball to the seasoned campaigner Shoaib Malik, who does not disappoint his skipper. He removes Mushfiqur, who was a bit unlucky to be ruled out leg-before-wicket. It is even-stevens though, as earlier a decision went against Pakistan. But is the match on now? Can Aamer get a couple more? Pakistan need Sami and others to join the party as well, while Bangladesh need Shakib to stay till the end. That will do it for them. Mahmudullah is the new man in. BATTING: Shakib Al Hasan 3(5), Mahmudullah 1(3).

OUT! Mushfiqur Rahim lbw b Shoaib Malik 12(15)

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Bangladesh 87/3 in 14 overs: OUT!! Aamer returns and returns with a bang! The skipper brings Aamer back to get him a breakthrough and the left-armer addresses the SOS call. He delivers a peach of a delivery, a fast yorker, almost out of nowhere to surprise Sarkar, who could do little about it. He misses his fifty by two runs. Aamer has infused life in this match now. Shakib comes out to bat. This is easily their best and most experienced pair and they will hope the duo sees them through. BATTING: Mushfiqur Rahim 12(14), Shakib Al Hasan 1(3).

OUT! Soumya Sarkar b Aamer 48(48)

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Bangladesh 82/2 in 13 overs: Afridi comes back to bowl his first delivery and is stopped in his stride by the umpire as the 12th man was yet to leave the field. Sarkar and Rahim keep rotating the strike. Rahim does survive a huge appeal for lbw, which looked out. A dejected skipper returns to bowl even as Sarfraz tries to motivate him with the customary “Come on come on Shahid bhai!”. The over, a brilliant one, ends with four runs coming off it. BATTING: Soumya Sarkar 48(47), Mushfiqur Rahim 9(12).

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Bangladesh 78/2 in 12 overs: Mohammad Sami is back into the attack. Sarkar decides to go behind him as well. Comes down dancing the track but misses it completely. Quite wisely rotates the strike. So does Mushfiqur, who is showing experience and class in the chase. Pakistan need wickets in heaps, and seems only Aamer can get them at the moment. Sami has pace, but he is far from being ominous. Five runs come off his over. Bangladesh are now slowly inching towards win. BATTING: Soumya Sarkar 47(43), Mushfiqur Rahim 7(10).

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Bangladesh 73/2 in 11 overs: There’s simply no stopping Sarkar! He’s scoring runs at will. There were talks about him being out of form. But what a way and what occasion to get back into form! He punishes the old warhorse Afridi for missing out from his line. The crowd is going berserk and absolutely behind their team. Mushfiqur is smartly rotating the strike. BATTING: Soumya Sarkar 44(39), Mushfiqur Rahim 5(8).

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Bangladesh 65/2 in 10 overs: Just the magic we were talking about from Afridi, and the skipper delivers. He gets the in-form Sabbir against the run of play. The batsman charged at Afridi but missed it completely and lost his stumps. Mushfiqur Rahim came out to join Sarkar. In the 1oth over, Sarkar decided to take on Anwar Ali. He charged at him and hit the slower one way beyond the ropes into the stands. The intent is clear, they are treating Ali as the weakest link in this attack and are taking chances against him. A boundary off his last ball make things worse for the youngster, who also bowled a wide. Bangladesh are racing towards the total. BATTING: Soumya Sarkar 39(37), Mushfiqur Rahim 2(4).

OUT! Sabbir Rahman b Afridi 14(15)

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Bangladesh 46/1 in 8 overs: Anwar Ali introduced into the attack now, and almost instantly creates a chance, or half. Sabbir hits one in the air, which is chased by the fielder but falls just in front of him. He is lucky to survive. Six runs come off the over. Anwar Ali looks far from being the bowler he used to be in 2006 at the under-19 level. BATTING: Soumya Sarkar 23(30), Sabbir Rahman 14(14).

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Bangladesh 40/1 in 7 overs: Shahid Afridi comes into the attack now. A typical Afridi appeal soon follows, only to be turned down by the umpire. Sarkar hits a boundary off a poor ball. Come on Afridi! What are you doing? Your team needs a magical performance from you today. Or else, the match will be all but over pretty soon. BATTING: Soumya Sarkar 21(26), Sabbir Rahman 10(12).

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Bangladesh 34/1 in 6 overs: Irfan delivers another top over. He uses his height to great effect and extracts decent bounce, which troubles the batsmen. The second ball of the over creates an opportunity, as Sabbir edges one to the keeper and it seems as if he almost walks and then stops. A huge appeal follows which is turned down. He struggles all through the over and finally manages one runs off the last ball towards the thrid man region. BATTING: Soumya Sarkar 16(23), Sabbir Rahman 10(9).

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Bangladesh 30/1 in 5 overs: Mohammad Sami introduced into the attack. He bowls fast and the very first ball is sent for a boundary by Sabbir. He just uses the pace of the ball. On the very next ball, Sami makes a huge appeal for an lbw even as Sabbir takes a leg-bye. Umpire turns it down. The replays suggested that it was hitting the stumps but was pitched outside the line. Sarkar plays off the remaining balls quite awkwardly, with little or no footwork. The over ends with a single. BATTING: Soumya Sarkar 14(21), Sabbir Rahman 8(5).

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Bangladesh 24/1 in 4 overs: Irfan delivers a tight over here. Just two runs come off it. Irfan uses the pitch of the bounce and bangs in short. Sarkar deals with the stuff a bit hesitantly. Sheikh Haseena meanwhile appears once again on the giant screen, making the crowd go berserk. Two runs come from the over; a good one for them. BATTING: Soumya Sarkar 13(17), Sabbir Rahman 4(3).

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Bangladesh 22/1 in 3 overs: Bangladeshi batsmen are taking on Aamer. That’s a real transformation, speaks volumes about their evolution. Sarkar plays off first three balls before pulling him mercilessly for a boundary. Aamer would not have imagined this sort of aggression after the first two games. Sabbir plays the last ball. Bangladesh are scoring above seven runs per over at the moment. BATTING: Soumya Sarkar 12(12), Sabbir Rahman 3(2).

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Bangladesh 17/1 in 2 overs: Mohammad Irfan the giant comes in to bowl the second over and gets hit for a boundary by Sarkar. But Tamim’s heroics end even before he could get going, as he is trapped in front of the stumps. The umpire does not hesitate before raising his finger. The in-form batsman Sabbir walks in and straightaway gets off the mark with a wristy short that fetches him three runs. Eight come from the over. Bangladesh are flying, despite the early loss. BATTING: Soumya Sarkar 7(7), Sabbir Rahman 3(1).

OUT! Tamim Iqbal lbw b Irfan 7(4)

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Bangladesh 8/0 in 1 over: Mohammad Aamer opens the attack. Tamim is back for Bangladesh at the top. He gets off the mark on the first ball. Aamer troubles Soumya Sarkar a bit with his swing. He manages to get off the strike. Tamim sets the crowd roaring with a six off the last ball. It was bowled on the legs and Tamim flicks it over the deep square leg boundary without any difficulty. Good start this by the hosts. BATTING: Tamim Iqbal 7(3), Soumya Sarkar 1(3)


LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Pakistan 129/7 in 20 overs: Pakistan have set Bangladesh 130 to win!
They finish strong, as 95 come in last 10 overs. Sarfraz returns unbeaten on 58 off just 42 balls. His innings has set-up the match and given some hope to his bowlers. The last over saw Anwar Ali hitting a six off Al Amin, before getting out. He was caught on the last ball by Sabbir, who took his third catch of the day. It was also Al Amin’s third wicket, making him the highest wicket taker in the main round of Asia Cup. Will Bangladesh chase it down, or will Pakistani pacers spring a surprise win here, we will see once the Bangladeshi reply begins. BATTING: Sarfraz Ahmed 58(42)

OUT! Anwar Ali c Sabbir b Al Amin 13(9)

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Pakistan 117/6 in 19 overs: Taskin comes to bowl the final over. His spell so far reads 3-1-2-1. He has been brilliant so far. But Sarfraz has to have a go at him. He does, hitting him for a couple of boundaries in the over and bringing 12 from it. In the process, the wicket-keeper batsman brings in his fifty. What a knock it has been! He has given his bowlers something to bowl at. Final over remains now. Can Pakistan go past 130? BATTING: Sarfraz Ahmed 51(40), Anwar Ali 8(5).

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Pakistan 104/6 in 18 overs: Senseless batting by the Pakistani captain. Walks in, gets a juicy full-toss, but sends it straight into the hands of Sabbir. Afridi is neither scoring, nor bowling much and his captaincy has been unimaginative. And after all this, he talks about reconsidering his retirement! Meanwhile, Anwar Ali, the hero of Under-19 World Cup 2006, has joined Sarfraz. He is the same man who reduced India to 6 for 9 in the final and won it for his side with a fifer. Mind you, that Indian team had Rohit Sharma, Ravindra Jadeja and Cheteshwar Pujara.BATTING: Sarfraz Ahmed 45(37), Anwar Ali 0(2).

OUT! Shahid Afridi c Sabbir b Al Amin 0(3)

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Pakistan 101/5 in 17 overs: Shakib bowls the 16th over and gets punished by Malik, who hits last two balls for fours. Sunny comes in to bowl the next over and Malik’s carnage continues. He hits him for a four but perishes soon after, trying to hit him out of the ground. Sabbir takes an easy catch. Huge moment this in the match, as Malik was threatening to take the game away from Bangladesh. But the hosts will be happy to see his back. BATTING: Sarfraz Ahmed 43(35), Shahid Afridi 0(0).

OUT! Shoaib Malik c Sabbir b Sunny 41(30)

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Pakistan 79/4 in 15 overs: Another good over for Pakistan, and this time it is the skipper who is at the receiving end. The first ball is dispatched towards the sweeper cover region for a four by Sarfraz. Another four runs from the next four balls before that huge six! Mortaza comes around the wicket and Sarfraz, almost in anticipation of  a full-toss, covers the stumps and hits it hard over the deep square-leg boundary for a six. 14 come from the over and the momentum is now shifting towards the visiting side. BATTING: Sarfraz Ahmed 36(30), Shoaib Malik 26(23).

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Pakistan 65/4 in 14 overs: Good over this for Pakistan! 11 came off Sunny’s over. Five singles from first five balls and the final one is dispatched straight over the bowler’s head for a long six. This is a Malik special. Both these batsmen are now coming into the groove. Pakistan need Malik and Sarfraz to stay till the end. Even if they plan realistically and reach to a 130 odd total, their bowlers will have some bargain. BATTING: Sarfraz Ahmed 23(25), Shoaib Malik 25(22).

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Pakistan 54/4 in 13 overs: Mortaza comes back and gives away eight runs from his over. Malik finds a boundary in the over off a slower one. The time is running out for Pakistan here. They need to finish strong and get something for Aamer and company to defend. BATTING: Sarfraz Ahmed 20(22), Shoaib Malik 17(19).

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Pakistan 46/4 in 12 overs: Shakib completes another over in no time, giving away six runs this time. The Pakistanis are slowly picking up things here, but the overs too are getting over quickly. Anything less than 140 will not be sufficient on this track. BATTING: Sarfraz Ahmed 19(21), Shoaib Malik 10(14).

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Pakistan 40/4 in 11 overs: Arafat Sunny comes now, spin form both the ends. First three balls do not fetch a single run, however the next two concede a single while the last one goes for a boundary. It is Malik this time, who squeezes in a four past short fine leg. Gradully the boundaries are coming. But Pakistan, as I said, need more of them. BATTING: Sarfraz Ahmed 16(18), Shoaib Malik 7(11).

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Pakistan 34/4 in 10 overs: Shakib completes his over in virtually no time. That’s the benefit when the spinners are operating; the captain does not have to worry about the over rate. He bowls good lines but Sarfraz manages to find a four. He makes room and cuts one between point and short third man to find a boundary of the over. Five runs come from the over. BATTING: Sarfraz Ahmed 15(17), Shoaib Malik 2(3).

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Pakistan 29/4 in 9 overs: Taskin removes Umar Akmal and the crowd goes bonkers! He bowled one full and Akmal charged in, but only ended up skying it behind point, where Shakib came running and pouched it, triggering wild celebrations. Pakistan are going downhill here, can Malik revive their fortunes? Meanwhile, Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Haseena is also inside the park! BATTING: Sarfraz Ahmed 11(13), Shoaib Malik 1(4).

OUT! Umar Akmal c Shakib b Taskin 4(15)

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Pakistan 28/3 in 8 overs: Shakib Al Hasan comes into the attack and the crowd cheers loud. They simply love him. Three runs come from his over. Have to say Bangladesh are making smart bowling changes, not allowing the Pakistani batsmen to get adjusted to one particular bowler. BATTING: Sarfraz Ahmed 11(13), Umar Akmal 4(9).

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Pakistan 25/3 in 7 overs: Mortaza continues and concedes five from his over. The fifth ball is hit for a boundary between mid-wicket and min-on by Sarfraz. Pakistan need more of these at the moment. They need to break the shackles here and ensure a winning total is put on the board. BATTING: Sarfraz Ahmed 10(9), Umar Akmal 2(7).

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Pakistan 20/3 in 6 overs: Mortaza is making quick bowling changes to befuddle the Pakistanis, who clearly have no clue as of now as to what has hit them. They are not just bowling well, but the Bangladeshi fielding has also been extremely great tonight. Al Amin comes now and concedes two from his over. There was a close shave as Umar Akmal survived a run out chance. This concludes the power-play. BATTING: Sarfraz Ahmed 6(7), Umar Akmal 1(3).

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Pakistan 18/3 in 5 overs: Another bowling change and another wicket falls. Captain Mashrafe Mortaza walks in and gets Hafeez straightaway. The keeper was standing up to him so that Hafeez could not come out. He trapped him in front of the stumps, as the stadium resonated. Umar Akmal walks in and there’s a huge appeal for caught behind on the very first ball. The umpire declines and the Bangladeshi players are stunned. BATTING: Sarfraz Ahmed 5(3), Umar Akmal 0(1).

OUT! Mohammad Hafeez lbw b Mortaza 2(11)

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Pakistan 16/2 in 4 overs: MAshrafe Mortaza brings in spin early into the game, probably to tempt Sharjeel to play his shots and create a possibility. Sharjeel welcomes him with a boundary, but hold on, here’s the revenge. Sunny cleans him up soon after. Sharjeel tried to play out of the line and pays the price. Sarfraz Ahmed replaces him. Shoaib Malik and Umar Akmal preserved. Good move this? BATTING: Mohammad Hafeez 1(8), Sarfraz Ahmed 4(1).

OUT! Sharjeel Khan b Sunny 10(8)

Spin gets introduced, as Arafat Sunny gets the ball.

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Pakistan 8/1 in 3 overs: Taskin continues to bowl with the same intensity. Tests Hafeez with some serious pace. Hafeez plays out the maiden over. Taskin has been consistently clocking around 140 kph. Bangladesh on top at the moment. BATTING: Sharjeel Khan 6(3), Mohammad Hafeez 1(8).



LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Pakistan 8/1 in 2 overs: OUT! Al Amin strikes off his very first ball. Khurram was not at all comfortable in the middle, and his short stay comes to an end. Al Amin’s first delivery bounced a bit and angled away from the batsman, who awkwardly edged it to Mushfiqur. Big blow this for the Pakistanis, who are playing a must-win game here. This brings the ‘Professor’ in the middle. Hafeez gets off the mark straightaway. Time to see what Sharjeel Khan does here. Mind you, he has been rated very highly in Pakistan’s cricket cirlces. And he shows why. Flicks one bowled at his legs over the deep backward square leg boundary for a maximum. BATTING: Sharjeel Khan 6(3), Mohammad Hafeez 1(2).

OUT! Khurram Manzoor c Mushfiqur b Al Amin 1(7)

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Pakistan 1/0 in 1 over: Taskin Ahmed opens the attack for Bangladesh. The stadium is roaring with fans. Taskin bowls with some serious pace and intensity and is backed by the vociferous crowd. Khurram Manzoor plays out the first five balls before taking a single off the last, which he guides towards the third man. Good start this by Bangladesh. BATTING: Khurram Manzoor 1(6), Sharjeel Khan 0(0).

The anticipation for the game is building! Pakistani openers walk out. Surprise, surprise! No Hafeez, Khurram walks out with Sharjeel.


Pakistan: Sharjeel Khan, Mohammad Hafeez, Khurram Manzoor, Shoaib Malik, Sarfraz Ahmed (wk), Umar Akmal, Shahid Afridi (c), Anwar Ali, Mohammad Sami, Mohammad Aamer, Mohammad Irfan.

Bangladesh: Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Sabbir Rahman, Mohammad Mithun, Mahmudullah, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mashrafe Mortaza (c), Taskin Ahmed, Arafat Sunny, Al-Amin Hossain.

6:30 PM IST! TOSS TIME: Pakistan have won the toss and decided to bat first. Anwar Ali comes in place of Mohammad Nawaz. Bangladesh have made two changes; Tamim Iqbal comes in for Nurul Hasan and Arafat Sunny replaces injured Mustafizur Rahman.

It is expected to be a packed house at Mirpur, as the home team will be playing. The spectators will turn out in huge numbers to support their side and see them progress to the final. Pakistan too are expected to have a decent support at the venue. The pitch is expected to behave the same way it has been behaving so far, offering something for the seamers early on. The dew too shall come into picture so the toss will be an important factor in the match. Sabbir Rahman, Shakib Al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal, who in all likelihood will replace a struggling Mohammad Mithun, are expected to play key roles for the host. Pakistan will look up to their seniors Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, skipper Shahid Afridi and of course their bowling department, to come up good in this key encounter.
