Ahmed Shehzad’s brilliant century helped Pakistan to a massive win over Bangladesh. Shehzad became the first Pakistani to score a century in T20Is. His efforts powered Pakistan to 190 for 5.
Shehzad carried his bat through to score 111* from 62 balls with 10 fours and 5 sixes. Shahid Afridi gave some finishing touches with 22 from 9 balls.
In reply, Bangladesh were restricted to 140 for 7 with Umar Gul taking 3 for 30. Shakib Al Hasan was Bangladesh’s top scorer with 38 from 32 balls.
Toss and Teams: Pakistan have won the toss and elected to bat first against hosts Bangladesh at the Shere Bangla National Stadium. It is a must win game for Pakistan to keep their hopes alive of a semi final berth. Bangladesh are already out of the tournament.
Pakistan have made one change with Sohail Tanvir replacing Bilawal Bhatti. Bangladesh have made one change too with Abdur Razzak coming in for Sohag Gazi.
