Bangladesh vs Pakistan Tri Series 2008

BAN vs PAK, Tri Series, Match 1: Pakistan crush Bangladesh by 70 runs in tri-series opener

Pakistan beat Bangladesh by 70 runs in the rain-delayed opening match of the triangular series in Dhaka yesterday. Chasing 233 for victory, Bangladesh reached 163 for eight in 40 overs.
Earlier, Salman Butt and Mohammad Yousuf cracked brisk half-centuries. Left-handed opener Butt made 70 and Yousuf 59 after Pakistan had been put in to bat in a match reduced to 40-overs-a-side due to rain.
Butt put on 75 for the opening wicket Kamran Akmal, dominating new-ball bowlers Shahadat Hossain and Mashrafe Mortaza with attractive strokes. He raced to his half-century off just 47 balls.
Debutant seamer Dolar Mahmud provided the breakthrough in the 12th over when he had Akmal (25) caught by wicket-keeper Mushfiqur Rahim, who dived to his right to bring off a low catch. Younus Khan was run out in the next over, but Butt and Yousuf propped up the innings with a 65-run stand for the third wicket.
Butt struck 10 fours in his 84-ball knock and Yousuf seven boundaries in his 56-ball innings. It was Butt's eighth half-century and Yousuf's 62nd. Misbah-ul-Haq then built on the efforts of Butt and Yousuf, smashing two sixes and three fours in a 22-ball 39.
Leg-spinner Alok Kapali dismissed Shahid Afridi (20) and Yousuf in the same over to finish with 3-49.

BAN vs PAK, Tri Series, Match 1: Pakistan aims to continue winning streak

Pakistan must overcome the absence of troubled pacemen Mohammad Asif and Shoaib Akhtar when it aims to extend its 11-match winning streak in limited overs cricket against host Bangladesh on Sunday.
The teams will clash in the opening match of a three-nation one-day series also involving India. "We have won 11 games in a row, and we want to continue that," Pakistan captain Shoaib Malik told reporters earlier in the Bangladesh capital. "We are looking forward to a good series. Everyone is fit and in good form."
Malik added that the absence of ace fast bowlers Mohammad Asif, who was dropped from the squad after being arrested in Dubai for allegedly carrying an illegal substance, and Shoaib Akhtar, who is serving a five-year international ban for repeated disciplinary breaches, could be overcome. "We still have a decent bowling attack in Sohail Tanvir, Omar Gul, Sohail Khan and Iftikhar Anjum," Malik said.
Led by Malik and coach Geoff Lawson, a 16-member Pakistan squad arrived Friday in Dhaka. Bangladesh captain Mohammad Ashraful, meanwhile, said his side is aiming for improvement against its neighbors. It has won only one match each against Pakistan and India in the past nine years. "We want to be competitive and show improvement in this series," Ashraful said.
The first match will be a day-night contest at Mirpur's Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium on the outskirts of Dhaka.
Pakistan will meet archrival India on Tuesday, while Bangladesh face the latter on Thursday. The final is scheduled for June 14. "India recently won a series against Australia in Australia, so their confidence is high. But we also have to take Bangladesh seriously as they are playing in their home conditions," said Malik.
