Bangladesh knock Pakistan out, book place in Asia Cup final

Bangladesh will face India in the 2018 Asia Cup final after beating Pakistan by 37 runs in a virtual semi-final.Bangladesh posted 239 at the Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi, owed largely to Mohammad Mithun (60) and a superb 99 by Mushfiqur Rahim, which nullified an earlier stumble.

Despite Junaid Khan’s 4/19 in his first appearance of this Asia Cup, Pakistan’s bowlers failed to find a cutting edge in the middle overs, while Imam ul-Haq’s valiant 83 was in vain as their batters struggled to keep up with the rate.
