Men in Green now join arch-rival India in semifinal from Group 2
ADELAIDE – Pakistan pulled off a shock win over Bangladesh and their semi-final berth has been confirmed after the crucial game in the ongoing T20 World Cup.
Pakistani openers Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan struggled to middle the ball in the first innings. The duo was then dismissed on 25 and 32 respectively as the Bangladeshi bowlers made it difficult for GreenShirts to find boundaries.
Young gun Haris played a quickfire knock of 31 off just 12 balls as he helped his side defeat the Tigers by 5 wickets.
Earlier in the game, ace speedster Shaheen Afridi got four scalps as Pakistan restricted Bangladesh to a score of 127/8.
In the last match, the Dutch side stunned South Africa and made this match a virtual quarter-final, and Pakistan joins India as the second semi-finalist from Group 2.
Bangladesh captain Shakib al Hasan earlier decided to bat first after winning the toss against Pakistan here on Sunday.
The Pakistan team so far played four matches two won and two lost while Bangladesh two won and two lost. The Green Shirts will be hoping to forget the previous defeats and make a comeback with a win over the Bangal tigers' to make their chances more positive to get a berth in the semifinals.
Team Pakistan, currently third in the wide-open Group 2 table, can advance if India loses to Zimbabwe in the last league match today. They are also in if South Africa loses their clash against the Netherlands or the match is a washout.
In the past, Pakistan never won two games in Super 12s in the history of Bangladesh cricket, if they beat them this time it will be another honour for Captain Babar Azam's boys.
