Latest Cricket News / Asia Cup – Pakistan Won the 1st Match of Asia Cup 2012 Against Bangladesh, E Pakistan News reported on Sunday.
In This Match Pakistan played first and set the target of 263 runs in 50 Overs. Muhammad Hafeez was good and he contributed 89 runs while Jamsheed 54 runs in the strong target.
While completing target Bangladesh can not get the goal and lose the match with 21 runs. Bangladesh 241 / 10 in 48. 1 overs. This match was very interesting and there were very big gathering in the ground.
It was a very well-planned chase and the top order must be given credit for the way they played. Unfortunately the lower order could not step up.
Shakib was the lone warrior in the end and thanks to some good bowling combined with some mindless batting, he was stranded with too much to do. The bowling was decent with every bowler picking up a wicket.
it will be fair to say that Gul was the difference between the two sides. He played a brilliant cameo earlier with the bat and then, towards the end, came back and bowled excellently at the death to finish with 3 wickets. Bangladesh got close but not close enough.
Man of the Match Goes to – Muhammad Hafeez
