Asia Cup highlights: Pakistan beat Bangladesh by 3 wickets in last-over
So, Pakistan’s three-wicket win over Bangladesh means India will not play in the Asia Cup final on Saturday. It will be a Pakistan vs Sri Lanka final as both teams sit pretty at 13 points atop the table leaving the others (Afghanistan, Bangladesh and India) no chance to catch up. It was a mature chase from Pakistan, their highest in ODIs and Ahmed Shehzad impressed with his careful century-knock. Shahid Afridi showed that Pakistan cannot be ruled out of any game when he is still batting. He hit seven sixes in his 25-ball 59, while recording the joint second-fastest fifty in ODI history. Fawad Alam also made a huge impact on the mind of the national selectors with his 70-ball 74 that virtually saw Pakistan through before he was run-out in the last over. Umar Akmal won it comfortably though for Pakistan with a four off the next ball.
