On the other hand, Pakistan bowlers delivered with disciplined lines and lengths and kept the opposition in check. The bowlers ensured to not concede a lot of runs in the powerplay and death overs. Hasan Ali was the pick of the bowlers as he accounted for three dismissals. Mohammad Wasim Jr took a couple of wickets. Mohammad Nawaz and Shadab Khan took a wicket apiece.

Hasan Ali was named the Man of the Match for his bowling performance. During the game, the speedometer helped Hasan Ali surpass Shoaib Akhtar’s record. Well, some fans thought it was for real, it turned out to be a technical glitch in the speed gun, leaving the cricket fraternity bemused.

In the end, Bangladesh managed to score 127/7 in their allotted quota of 20 overs. Pakistan was really pleased with their bowling performance but they struggled to score runs in the run-chase. Pakistan opening pair Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam scored 16 runs in 2.4 overs. Meanwhile, Mustafizur Rahman provided a sudden breakthrough for the hosts. The southpaw fast bowler got rid of Rizwan with a gem of a delivery.
