Pakistan vs Bangladesh Live Cricket Report

Rauf gets the breakthrough

Rauf gets the breakthrough as he dismisses Shakib Al Hasan. Shakib, who was well set, goes to pull a short ball and gets a top edge that is just about held on to at midwicket. This wicket exposes the Bangladesh tail.

Shakib Al Hasan presses the accelerator

After hitting just one boundary in his first 53 deliveries, Shakib Al Hasan starts pressing the accelerator as he hits three consecutive boundaries off Iftikhar Ahmed’s over. He goes over cover, then sweeps through midwicket, before stepping out to hit the bowler back over his head.

Six and out! Usama Mir gets Hridoy

Towhid Hridoy, facing just his second delivery of the game, tries to slog Usama Mir over deep midwicket but only manages to get an edge to the slip fielder. Bangladesh lose two wickets in two overs and are suddenly wobbling at 141 for 6.

102 and counting for Shaheen

Shaheen Shah Afridi gets a crucial breakthrough by dismissing Mahmudullah. Shaheen goes around the wicket and gets a length ball to ricochet onto the stumps off Mahmudullah’s pad. This is Shaheen’s seventh wicket in the middle overs in the tournament.

Can Mahmudullah ton up?

Mahmudullah is in red-hot form and there are hopes that he can score another century today. He has been promoted to No. 4 and has a good average and career-best score from that position.

Bangladesh’s partnership problems

Bangladesh have struggled to register partnerships of 100 or more in this World Cup. Their average for partnerships is one of the lowest in the tournament. This highlights their batting struggles.

50 in 58 balls for Mahmudullah

Mahmudullah scores his 28th ODI half-century in just 58 balls. He has been scoring at a decent rate and provides impetus to the partnership with Litton Das.

How much do Bangladesh need?

The average first innings score at the Eden Gardens is 262 in 32 ODIs. Bangladesh will need a competitive total to give themselves a good chance of winning this match.

Soft dismissal for Litton Das

Litton Das falls short of a fifty as he chips an innocuous delivery to midwicket. This ends a 79-run partnership with Mahmudullah and leaves Bangladesh at 102 for 4.

Litton survives a scare

Litton Das gets lucky as he almost chips a delivery to a fielder, but it falls just short. This is the second time he has escaped a dismissal in this innings.

Litton, Mahmudullah arrest collapse

Litton Das and Mahmudullah put on a 33-run stand to steady Bangladesh after three early wickets. They provide stability and welcomed the new bowlers with boundaries.

Mahmudullah back at No. 4

Mahmudullah has been promoted to No. 4, a position where he has thrived in the past. His average and career-best score are impressive from this position.

Rauf joins the party

Haris Rauf takes two boundaries from Litton Das but then manages to get him out with a well-executed delivery. Rauf’s wicket leaves Bangladesh further in trouble at 68 for 3.

Usama Mir’s blinder gives Shaheen another

Shaheen Shah Afridi dismisses Najmul Hassan Shanto with the help of Usama Mir, who takes a brilliant catch at midwicket. This is Shaheen’s second powerplay wicket in this World Cup.

Shaheen the first over rockstar is back!

Shaheen Shah Afridi strikes early by getting Tanzid Hasan out with a beautiful setup. He finds swing straight away and traps Hasan lbw. Shaheen has been successful with early wickets in this tournament.

Pakistan’s road to the semis… is a narrow one

Pakistan can still make the semifinals, but they face a tough task. They need a win against Bangladesh and other results to go their way. Their chances are slim, but not completely ruled out.

Litton Das vs Shaheen Shah Afridi

Litton Das has struggled against Shaheen Shah Afridi in the past, getting dismissed twice by him. This will be an interesting battle between the two players at the top of the innings.

Bangladesh bat; wholesale changes for Pakistan

Bangladesh wins the toss and chooses to bat. Pakistan makes three changes to their team, including a new opening partnership.

Will the real Bangladesh please stand up?

Bangladesh, a team on the rise in 2022, has struggled in the World Cup. They have not performed up to expectations and need to find their form quickly.

Pakistan need to get with the times

Pakistan has struggled with their batting in the World Cup. They have consumed a large number of balls per boundary and scored a smaller percentage of runs in boundaries compared to other teams. They need to adapt to modern cricket to be competitive.

Hello and welcome to the Eden Gardens!
