Pakistan Becomes Asian Champion Of Cricket
Pakistan won the Asia Cup Final in a closely contested match against Bangladesh at the Shere Bangla National Stadium.
Chasing 237 for the win, Bangladesh fell short by 3 runs.
After being put into bat by Bangladesh captain Mushfiqur Rahim, who always liked to chase throughout the tournament, Pakistan could not bat impressively against accurate bowling and alert fielding from the hosts.
Wicketkeeper-batsman Sarfraz Ahmed top scored with an unbeaten 46, followed by Mohammad Hafeez (40), Shahid Afridi (32), Umar Akmal (30) and Hammad Azam (30) as no other batsmen could reached double figures.
