Join us then with the match starting at PM. Till then it's goodbye! Exactly why we wanted to bat first. If you saw later half of the West Indies innings, it was difficult to bat on.
Comment Bubble Icon A. The sides meet again on Sunday with the hosts hoping to claim a maiden series victory over their Asian rivals. For Bangladesh, it will be a case of more of the same.
Pakistan's new skipper Azhar Ali has plenty to ponder. Local, a. Weather: Heavy, thundery showers are forecast according to AccuWeather.
Keep that Duckworth-Lewis sheet handy.
Overview Stand-in skipper Shakib Al Hasan said that Bangladesh were favourites ahead of the series opener against Pakistan. His side lived up to that bold prediction, gaining their first victory over Pakistan in 16 years. The recipe for success both in the World Cup and against Pakistan has been similar.
Bat first, build up a decent total then scrap like mad in the field to defend it. It worked a treat in Mirpur and they're more than capable of doing it again. Tamim Iqbal and Mushfiqur Rahim, centurions in the first game, look in fine touch.
Add the talented duo of Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmudullah and the Bangladesh top order has plenty of potential. We just wanted to contain. It was a professional performance.
Win after 16 year against Pakistan! Well done boys. That's assuming he gets picked after such a spectacular effort. His opposite number Azhar Ali has plenty of headaches ahead of Sunday's match.
Alongside a promising 67 from debutant Mohammad Rizwan, the captain's 72 was one of the few bright spots from an inexperienced Pakistan side. The Pakistani brains trust will look to shore up a batting lineup that subsided feebly at the business end of the chase.
The visitors lost their last six wickets for just 33 runs. Pakistan's batting woes have been well documented. More worrying perhaps is the state of the attack ahead of the second ODI. Bangladesh's total of for six was the highest in their history.
Saeed Ajmal showed plenty of rust, his final five overs going for 63 runs.
The seamers, with the exception of the reliable Wahab Riaz, struggled too. They should be better after a decent workout, though. They got runs extra. Rizwan batted well, we had a few positives.
We will fix the mistakes and come strong in the next game. They'll have their work cut out turning around this three-match series, though. Bangladesh are talented and extremely hungry, which is a dangerous combination.
They could quite easily be celebrating a first series victory over Pakistan come Sunday evening. More runs at the top of the order will be the foundation for more success for Bangladesh.
A confident Shakib Al Hasan produced a nice cameo of an innings and was solid with the ball in the opening match. The year-old is Bangladesh's most talented player and capable of match-winning performances with bat and ball.
He'll be key to another win.
Pakistan: After a shocker on Friday, where his 10 overs went for a career-worst 74 runs, things can only get better for Saeed Ajmal. Wahab Riaz showed once again why he's one of the best bowlers in the game today.
He'll need to perform again on Sunday. The batting remains a concern. Much will rest on the shoulders of skipper Azhar Ali. Facebook Logo.
