Pakistan Vs Bangladesh Live Score (ODI) Full Scorecard & Live Streaming 26/9/18
A win and a loss each in the group stage. A big loss to India, and a narrow win against Afghanistan in the Super Fours. This has been the common theme in Bangladesh’s and Pakistan’s journey so far in the 2018 Asia Cup. Now, they find themselves facing off against each other in a virtual semifinal, with the winner taking on India for the title on Friday.
The similarities in the campaign make it difficult to pick a favourite. They haven’t played each other in a long time too; the last time these two sides met was in March 2016 during the World T20. The last time they met in a One-Day International was in April 2015.
Both sides have changed a lot since then, for the better. Bangladesh made it to the knockouts of an ICC event for the first time when they reached the semifinals of the Champions Trophy last year. They even went on to beat Windies in the Caribbean earlier this year. Pakistan, meanwhile, stunned many to win the Champions Trophy.
The Asia Cup is another important tournament for both sides in their upward journey. Yet, both have been inconsistent through their campaign. It’s time to fix that, for they face a do-or-die situation at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi on Wednesday.
Bangladesh’s biggest problem has been their over-reliance on individuals. With Tamim Iqbal injured in the very first game, Mushfiqur Rahim has had to carry the team on his shoulders. It was only because of his century that they won against Sri Lanka in the group stage. The rest have been on and off, although most of the batsmen have had at least one decent score through the campaign. It all seemed to come together in their previous match against Afghanistan, where Imrul Kayes and Mahmudullah helped them post a competitive 249 for 7 after being 87 for 5 at one stage.
