Pak too good for Bangla

Bangladesh, replying to Pakistan's modest 135 for seven, narrowly avoided their lowest ever total of 78 in this format of the game before finishing their chase on 85 for nine.

Nasir Hossain scored 35 not out to help Bangladesh past their lowest score but it was nowhere near enough against a Pakistani side playing their 50th Twenty20 International.
The home team struggled from the start, losing their first five wickets for only 23 runs.
Pakistan also had to curb their attacking instincts and settle for a below-par score despite starting well with a 30-run opening stand.

Hafeez top-scored for Pakistan with 25 off 31 balls and skipper Misbah-ul Haq was 21 not out as Pakistan hit only two boundaries in the last five overs. Umar Akmal provided the only fluent batting of the match, scoring 20 off 14 balls.
