Update: Another wicket. Mashrafe Mortaza to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT. Mohammad Hafeez lbw b Mashrafe Mortaza 2 (11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 18.18
Update: Arafat Sunny to Sharjeel Khan, OUT, knocked him over! This one was nicely tossed up, he looked to set himself up for a biff over deep midwicket, but only managed to connect with the cool Mirpur air. The ball spins back in to hit middle stump. Pakistan in early trouble
Sharjeel Khan b Arafat Sunny 10 (8b 1×4 1×6) SR: 125.00
Pakistan rocked early Al-Amin Hossain to Khurram Manzoor, OUT, beauty first up and a huge roar resonates across the stadium. That one pitches on length and just takes off, Manzoor was half-forward as he looked to defend, but the ball got big on him and kissed the glove on the way through to Mushfiqur. Another failure for Manzoor, another poor start for Pakistan.

Update: Pak wins the toss decides to field
Pakistani cricket team is facing a tough test against hosts Bangladesh. The country is watching at a match that is must win for it. If Pakistan loses the match against Bangladesh today, they will have to fly back home unceremoniously.
Bangladesh are a formidable team now. It is a team that has beaten almost all of the top world teams. It is no longer one of the minnows that can be treated with disdain and easy to beat for every other team. They have good bowling attack, great batting lineup and above all a great fielding side.
As they are playing on their home turf, they will be backed by a roaring crowd of supporters who will try to make life miserable for the Pakistani cricket team on the field.
Bangladesh, after having beaten two teams in the form of UAE and Sri Lanka are behind India only in this tournament. To be true their win against Sri Lanka is very important as they impressed with both, bat and the ball.
One thing that will haunt the Bangla lions is the fact that Bangladesh 20-year-old left-arm pace sensation Mustafizur Rahman, who was forced to sit out the last two games of a bilateral series with Zimbabwe and then the entire Pakistan Super League franchise cricket competition earlier this month has been ruled out of Wednesdayâ€™s Pakistan match â€” as well as the final, if Bangladesh gets there â€” citing a strained muscle in his side.
Team manager Bayjedul Islam while talking to the media said, â€œMustafiz complained of discomfort after Sundayâ€™s match against Sri Lankaâ€¦An MRI scan was done today and the report from the radiologist confirmed a Grade One side strain on the right. He is under conservative treatment and rest for next 48 hours. Following that the rehab will begin. We are expecting that he will make a quick recovery and resume bowling soon.â€
Pakistan on the other hand is faced with a situation where its batting line up is not clicking. The top order seems to be rudderless and the captain has not been able to lead from the front. If Pakistan wins the match, they must go on to defeat Sri Lanka on Friday to insure their trip to the final match and another chance to take on India â€” who humiliated Pakistan on Saturday, holding their rivals to a mere 83 runs on their way to a five wicket victory with 27 balls remaining.
