Live Score
Cricket fans can get the live score of the match from the following website link:
Pakistan may have lost both of their previous matches, but their performance was not overly disappointing. Pakistan could have won both the matches if they could hold their nerves till the end. In their opening game, Pakistan made an excellent fight back led by captain Shahid Afridi, but eventually lost the match by 16 runs.
Pakistan’s hopes to play in the final were finished after losing to India by 3 wickets on Sunday. Pakistan had enough chances to win the match. First of all, Pakistan failed to score a 300 plus score, despite having a good start from the openers. Later on, their bowlers could not keep the pressure on Indian batsmen.
Bangladesh, on the other hand, failed to live up to the expectations. They were not favorite, but many people thought Bangladesh would give some scary moments to the favorites. However, they were severely defeated by India and Sri Lanka. Now, they would like to prove that they are capable of creating upsets.
The match does not have any significance as far as the impact of its result on the tournament is concerned. So, both sides could opt to play some new players who could not play so far in the tournament.
Afridi confirmed that Shoaib Akhtar would be rested for the match and there is a possibility Asif could play in his place. Pakistan may like to play left arm spinner Abdur Rehman in place of Saeed Ajmal. There is also a possibility Pakistan could hand 24-year-old batsman Asad Shafiq his debut against Bangladesh.
Bangladesh would also like to test their squad strength by giving Jahurul Islam his ODI debut. Jahurul is a top order batsman and wicketkeeper. Bangladesh could also play pacer Rubel Hossain in place of Syed Rasel.
