Pakistan vs Bangladesh Match 6, Asia Cup 2018 Super Four: Things did not go according to the script as Bangladesh beat Pakistan by 37 runs to set up a finals date with India. Going into the virtual semis, Pakistan was the better team on paper, but a lackluster performance meant they were not going to meet arch-rivals in the finals. Nevertheless, it was a clinical performance by Bangladesh who showed they as a team have come of age and are among the best in the Asian continent.
For Pakistan, as was expected trolls started after their defeat and here are some of the most hilarious memes that went viral after the loss.
Earlier, it was Mushfiqur Rahim’s brilliant 99 runs that helped Bangladesh recover from 12/3 to set 240 for Pakistan to chase. 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.”
