Bangladesh vs Pakistan

Pakistan beat Bangladesh by 5 wickets to advance to the semi-finals. Earlier in the day, the Netherlands knocked South Africa out of the competition, resulting in this particular tie being a virtual knock-out match for both teams.

Batting first, Bangladesh had a poor start. Najmul Shanto scored a half-century but did not get support from the others. Shaheen Afridi took a four-wicket haul and restricted Bangladesh to 127/8 after 20 overs.

In reply, Pakistan started with a conservative approach. However, Mohammad Haris scored runs quickly and the Men in Green won the match by 5 wickets and 11 balls remaining.

With the win, Pakistan climb to the top of the table, but will finish 2nd if India manages to beat Zimbabwe.
