Pakistan won 2nd T20 against Bangladesh with quite ease in Lahore Qaddafi Stadium.
Innings of Bangladesh
Bangladesh won the toss and elected to bat first. Batting line of Bangladesh did not play well and looked like playing without any firm plan.
Bangladesh could not have any partnership to score a good total on score board. Tamim Iqbal played well under pressure and secure one batting end while on other side, batsmen were getting out on regular intervals. Tamim scored 65 runs on 53 balls.
We have to admire Pakistan’s bowling unit for their great effort with the ball. Seven bowlers bowled from Pakistan side and Mohammad Husnain was the most successful one with two wickets in four overs.
All bowlers bowled well as a unit. Shaheen Shah Afridi, Shadab Khan and Haris Rauf took one wicket each. Shoaib Malik and Imad Wasim were also handy with the ball.
Bsnglsdesh was restricted to 136 runs by fine bowling attack of Pakistan.
Innings of Pakistan
Pakistan lost their 1st wicket very early like first match in second over. Ahsan Ali was the first one to go. He was not comfortable on the crease and he scored only 1 run on 7 balls.
Muhammad Hafeez came out at number three to join skipper Babar Azam on crease. They started playing the balls on merit with confidence. This was the time when it felt that these two experienced and talented guys will take this match to the end in favor of Pakistan.
Bowling attack could not get Babar and Hafeez in any trouble and they stayed on pitch with easy score flow. Babar Azam and Muhammad Hafeez scored 66 and 67 respectively and took Pakistan towards victory.
Shafiul Islam took the only wicket from Bangladesh bowling side.
