Mossadek Hossain has been caught as he tried to increase the run rate. Bangladesh are now six wickets down. This is getting easy for Pakistan. BAN 197/6 in 40 overs
Mahmudullah and Mossadek Hossain have built a good partnership here now. But the reqd run rate is increasing. They need 125 to win in 67 balls. Someone needs to start hitting big shots.
An off cutter from Shaheen Afridi, just pitched it outside off stump, a bit of bounce and Shakib took a swing at it. Gets and edge and it is caught. BAN 154/5
A slow ball from Shaheen Afridi and Liton Das goes for a swing. The ball goes straight to Haris Sohail. BAN 136/4
Shakib al Hasan has scored yet another half century and he has also became Bangladesh’s top scorer. He is keeping Bangladesh in the hunt. 27 overs gone, BAN 123/3
Shakib still going
Shakib al Hasan is still in the middle and he is with Liton Das. The duo chased down over 300 once before against West Indies. Can they do it again?
Wahab Riaz has dismissed Mushfiqur as the batsman chops on to the stumps. BIG WICKET! Bangladesh are 78/3.
Shakib and Mushfiqur, the duo are yet again building a partnership. They will hope to take their side to a win.
Stunned by a slow delivery, Tamim Iqbal has been bamboozled. Shaheen Afridi strikes. Bangladesh are two wickets down for 48.
10 overs gone
10 overs gone, Bangladesh are now 47/1. Bangladesh would want Shakib al Hasan to take the side to a win and finish as the tournament’s run scorer. He has had a fantastic tournament.
First blow for Bangladesh
Bangladesh have been given their first blow as Fakhar Zaman takes a good low catch to get rid of Soumya Sarkar. BAN 26/1
Pakistan just dropped a catch at slips and also dropped the chance to qualify. Bangladesh reach 8/0 and this means, Pakistan are out of the contention and New Zealand have made it through.
The players are coming out in the middle and we are about to get underway with the Bangladesh chase. Tamim Iqbal and Soumya Sarkar are opening the innings for Bangladesh while Mohammad Hafeez has the new ball in his hands as Pakistan opt for spin early on.
End of innings
Mustafizur Rahman picked up two wickets and gave away six runs in the final over. Pakistan finish at 315/9. Bangladesh need 316 to win. Is that the magic number? Remember, Pakistan needed to win by 316 to qualify and that is the exact total here.
Fizz takes a one-handed diving low catch off his own bowling to get rid of Shadab Khan. Pakistan are seven wickets down for 288.
GOT HIM! AGAIN!
Mohammad Saifuddin cleans up Wahab Riaz with a menacing yorker. Pakistan are six wickets down for 288.
Sarfaraz walks off
Sarfaraz Ahmed has not been dismissed but he has walked off the field and Wahab Riaz has stepped in. A bid to accelerate the innings, maybe?
Mustafizur Rahman strikes and gets his 100th ODI wicket. Haris Sohail tried to go after a short one, gets a top edge and it flies straight to Soumya Sarkar. Pakistan 255/5
Mohammed Hafeez has hit it straight to a fielder at midwicket. He departs for 27. The end of an era? Pakistan 248/4
Imam ul Haq has been dismissed right after scoring his ton. He has hit the stumps on his own to set the dismissal. PAK 246/3
Imam has done it! Imam ul Haq has completely done it! He has brought his hundred in 99 balls. Pakistan 245/2 in 41.3 overs
Imam on path to 100
Imam ul Haq has been on the path to scoring a ton. Pakistan would hope he can bat for long as he can make a real impact in the final 10 overs.
Babar Azam has been trapped LBW and the DRS could not save him. He is dismissed for 96, and once again misses out on his ton. Shaifuddin gets the prize. PAK 180/2
Babar Azam on fire
Babar Azam has found a second gear since scoring his half century. He smashed Mustafizur for two consecutive boundaries. 30 overs gone, Pakistan 163/1
Imam ul Haq has also scored his fifty in 52 balls, courtesy of poor fielding from Bangladesh. Bangladesh are having a foregettable day on the field. PAK 135/1 in 26.4 overs
Babar Azam brings up his half century, and he brings it up in style. Solid batting from Babar, and he needs to take this forward today.
Azam approaching fifty
Babar Azam has moved i nto late 40s and he could be on the verge of scoring his half century here. Another big innings on the cards - or a typical Azam innings which ends on 60s and 70s...? Time will tell.
Expensive first over from Shakib
11 runs from the over, so unlike Shakib. He started the over by giving 4 wides and then Babar Azam and Imam ul Haq were smart enough to deal in ones and twos, productive over for Pakistan.
A nice dab down to third man from Imam-ul-Haq brings up Pakistan’s fifty. It hasn’t come in a quick time but considering they lost Zaman early, they will take it. Now for Babar Azam to really capitalize on the good start.
That’s the end of the first Powerplay. The Bangladesh, bowlers, Mehidy Hasan in particular have not allowed Pakistan to get off to a flying start, which they needed so badly after opting to bat first. Shaifuddin in fact, gave them a body blow by removing Fakhar Zaman early. Pakistan 38 for 1 after 10 overs
Shaifuddin removes Zaman
OUT! Straight to the hands. Zaman wasn’t timing the ball well today and he didn’t even this time. Nothing special about the delivery from Shaifuddin and Zaman in fact, it was there to be hit but Zaman doesn’t get the desired timing and provides a simple catch to the point fielder.
A photographer’s delight
FOUR! Majestic, wonderful, serene - Get all your adjectives out and it may still fall short to describe that shot from Imam-ul-Haq. Everything right about that cover drive and it pierced the packed off side field to race away to the boundary.
Close shave for Fakhar
It was miles up in the air and thankfully for Pakistan and Fakhar Zaman, it lands just short of Tamim Iqbal, who ran in at least 20 metres from the long-off boundary. A flighted delivery oputside the off stump from Mehidy, Fakhar dances down the track and attempts an outrageous heave only to get a top edge. 2 runs
SMASHED for four! Short and wide from Shaifuddin, it was there to be punished and was done so by Fakhar Zaman, just the ideal delivery for a batsman to get his innings going. Pakistan need a big one from Fakhar, if they have to post in excess of 400, then he has to come good.
Mehidy starts well
Very good start from Bangladesh off-spinner Mehidy Hasan, perfect line and length, no room provided to Fakhar Zaman to free his arms, only 1 run from it.
What the captains said
Sarfaraz Ahmed, Pakistan captain: Only chance we have is to bat first and put a big total on the board. So we will try our best. We are going with the same team, although we know that we need quick and big runs. It’s a long tournament and one game is different from the others. Unfortunate to be in this position but we will try our best.
Mashrafe Mortaza, Bangladesh captain: I’d love to bat first on this wicket as it’s a used wicket. Have to bowl well and restrict them to a chaseable total, We’ve been playing well against them but this is a fresh game and they’re a good side. They’re starting to take off in terms of momentum and we need to play well. Yes, it will be a good milestone for us if we manage to win four games in the World Cup. It is my final World Cup game and I will try my best.
Bangladesh (Playing XI): Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim(w), Mahmudullah, Liton Das, Mosaddek Hossain, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mehidy Hasan, Mashrafe Mortaza(c), Mustafizur Rahman
Pakistan (Playing XI): Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Haris Sohail, Sarfaraz Ahmed(w/c), Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan, Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Amir, Shaheen Afridi
Pakistan are playing an unchanged side. Bangladesh have made two changes, Mahmudullah and Mehidy are in for Sabbir and Rubel
Pakistan win toss and opt to bat first against Bangladesh and more importantly, stay alive in the tournament for now.
“Right handers will target the 62m leg-side boundary and 58 meters point boundary. Straight boundaries are longer. It’s pretty much the same at both ends. Lot of greenery on the surface but I guess whatever moisture is there will dry out. Looks a decent track to bat on.” reckon Simon Doull and a highly optimistic Rameez Raja who is backing Pakistan to post a 400-plus total.

Shakib is on the verge of joining legendary Sachin Tendulkar in an elite World Cup list.

Toss can end Pakistan’s hopes
Would you believe it if we tell you that the coin- toss can end Pakistan’s ray of hope? Yes, if Bangladesh win the toss and opt to bat first then Bangladesh will automatically be eliminated from the World Cup. To stand a chance for a semi-final berth, Pakistan first need to bat first then post a huge total.
