Pakistan chose to bat and got off to a strong start, but Fakar Zaman was dismissed after scoring 35 runs. Pakistan’s captain, the world’s number one batsman, came in to bat but couldn’t stay at the crease for long, as he was dismissed after adding 17 runs to the total. However, Rizwan and opener Imam steadied the innings and contributed valuable runs, guiding their team to a close victory. Unfortunately, Imam couldn’t finish the match as he was also dismissed. However, a brief cameo from Salman Agah helped Pakistan secure a 7-wicket win, achieved in just 39 overs.

Bangladesh faced a setback, but they are determined to bounce back when they take on Sri Lanka on September 9th. Meanwhile, Pakistan will clash with their archrival India on September 10, with both matches scheduled to be held in Hambantota. Here’s the updated points table following the match
