Bangladesh vs Pakistan, Asia Cup 2018 Super Four: Former India skipper MS Dhoni is known to have a sharp cricketing brain and we saw a glimpse of that when he asked captain Rohit Sharma to incorporate a change in the field after Ravindra Jadeja got hit for two consecutive boundaries. The change of field immediately resulted in the wicket of Shakib al Hasan. Pakistan captain tried to repeat MS Dhoni’s feat but failed miserably. Ahmed removed the first slip off the bowling of Hasan Ali and what happened next was the ball went there at a catchable height but because nobody was there it ended up as a boundary.
Here is the video of the event.
And here is how Dhoni’s move resulted in the wicket of Shakib.
MS Dhoni is the most successful captain India has ever had, he has also led India to two World Cup triumphs. Recently, MS Dhoni captained India for the 200th time against Afghanistan as Rohit Sharma was rested ahead of the finals.
Meanwhile, Mustafizur Rahman starred with the ball scalping four wickets after Mushfiqur Rahim bailed Bangladesh out of trouble from 12/3 to 239, thanks to his marvelous 99.
Apart from Imam’s laborious 82 off 105 balls, there was nothing much to write about the Pakistan batting. The application seemed to be the problem.
“The bowlers did a good job, especially when we didn’t get the runs,” said Mashrafe. “But Mushi and Mithun batted really well and got us to a fighting total. We are proud of our fielding today. For a long time we haven’t seen this quality of fielding in our team, so hopefully, the boys can understand the value of good fielding.”
Sarfraz was upset with team’s showing in the six-team tournament.
“It’s not a good feeling,” said Sarfraz. “As a captain, I didn’t do well. We didn’t field well, our batting collapsed and as a team we didn’t do well in any department.
“It seems the team which won the Champions Trophy last year didn’t come here at all.”
Bangladesh beat Pakistan by 37 runs to enter the finals of the Asia Cup 2018 where they will play India. The summit clash is going to take place on September 28.
