Commentary (Pakistan innings)

That's it from us then. Now we head into the Super Eights. Sri Lanka play New Zealand and England play West Indies on 27th September. Do join us for that. Till then, good bye and take care!

Imran Nazir is the Man of the Match for his wonderful innings of 72 runs from just 36 balls.

Bangladesh have now lost all the 6 T20Is against Pakistan and this was Pakistan's 14th win in World T20, the most by any team. It means, Pakistan to face India on Sunday for the Super Eight match. You couldn't ask more.

Earlier, Bangladesh managed a strong total of 175/6 in their 20 overs. Shakib Al Hasan (84 off 54) played a fantastic knock before getting caught off Yasir Arafat and he was the star of the match. Mushfiqur Rahim and Tamim Iqbal played decent hands too. Yasir Arafat picked up three wickets but was a touch expensive.

Pakistan win by eight wickets and qualify convincingly for the Super Eights! It was a fabulous performance for them in their batting after their bowling was wayward in the first innings.

This should be a defendable total but expect Pakistan to blaze all the guns and chase down. Yasir Arafat finished with 3/25 in his 3 overs.
