Shaheen Afridi picked up six wickets to help Pakistan end their World Cup 2019 campaign on a high as they beat Bangladesh by 94 runs at Lord’s in London on Friday. Chasing a target of 316, Bangladesh lost both their openers inside 11 overs. Shakib Al Hasan scored yet another half-century in World Cup 2019 and eclipsed Rohit Sharma to become the tournament’s top-scorer. After Shaheen Afridi dismissed Shakib in the 33rd over, Bangladesh couldn’t recover from that blow as they kept on losing wickets at regular intervals. Earlier, Pakistan finished at 315/9 in 50 overs. Bangladesh bowled brilliantly at the death to stop Pakistan posting a mammoth total. Mustafizur Rahman once again claimed a five-wicket haul. He had picked 5 wickets in Bangladesh’s last match against India. Imam-ul-Haq smashed a fine century before getting out hit-wicket. Imam hit 7 fours in his 100-run knock. Babar Azam also played a fine 96-run knock. He, however, survived two times thanks to Bangladesh’s dropped catches. Babar Azam’s 98-ball knock was laced with 11 fours. Imad Wasim played a cameo in the end, scoring a quick-fire 43 off just 26 balls with the help of 6 fours and a six. For Bangladesh, Mustafizur Rahman was the leading wicket-taker, claiming five wickets. Mohammad Saifuddin claimed three wickets and Mehidy Hasan also picked one wicket. (SCORECARD)
