Pak aim for a final spot

Mirpur: Buoyed by their last-over win over arch-foes India, a rejuvenated Pakistan will look to seal a berth in the final as they lock horns with beleaguered hosts Bangladesh in their last round-robin Asia Cup match, here, on Tuesday.

The top two teams qualify for the summit clash and Pakistan, having collected nine points from three appearances, will go into the match as favourites. The momentum swung their way after the Shahid Afridi rocked India at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium on Sunday.

For the record, Pakistan had lost to Sri Lanka in the tournament opener, before getting their campaign back on track with successive wins over Afghanistan and the big one against India. A win for Pakistan will only make things more difficult fort India.

Match starts: 1.30pm (IST)
