nd Innings Bangladesh
So that is it from this game! Pakistan end their World Cup campaign on a good note and Bangladesh in a bad manner. Both though did not have a tournament to remember. On the 6th of June which is a Saturday and which is also the last day of the group stage of this World Cup, there are two games line-up. Two big games as it would decide who finishes on top and who would end up being second. The first game sees Sri Lanka take on India and the second is a battle between Australia and South Africa. The first game begins at 1030 local (0930 GMT). The second begins at 1.30 pm local (12.30 GMT). Till then, goodbye and take care!
Pakistan skipper, Sarfaraz Khan, says it is very unfortunate they came into form at the back end but could not qualify. Admits the game against Windies cost them a lot. Further adds they though played very good cricket throughout the tournament and were good in all three departments. Mentions they started off with a different combination but how Haris Sohail and Afridi came back was commendable. Tells they have a break of almost two months and they need to sit down and have a chat. Credits the batters and the bowlers for the way they played today. Ends by saying the way Shaheen Afridi is bowling in recent times has been exceptional.
Bangladesh skipper, Mashrafe Mortaza, says in the last two matches, Shakib batted well but they could not get partnerships. Mentions they felt they could chase this down but they lacked partnerships. Credits Shakib for the way he has played throughout and feels had he not performed, they would not have played so well. States the fielding cost them in many games, the bowling is an issue but fielding was poor. Further adds batting was excellent. Tells since the time Rahman started playing, he has been brilliant, he did get injured but came back strongly and he hopes he has no injury issues moving ahead. Admits he is not satisfied with their performance, they could have finished on a good note. Ends by saying he will go home and think about whether he wants to continue playing for Bangladesh or not.
MAN OF THE MATCH, Shaheen Afridi, says he has been working hard in the nets and with the bowling coach and he is happy with this success. States it is a special feeling for him, his family and Pakistan. Informs he asked his captain whether he can bowl a yorker, he got the nod and bowled them. Mentions the wicket was slow, Rahman bowled well by using cutters and he did the same. Ends by saying he dedicates this award to his father.
Earlier in the day, Imam's ton and Babar's 96 powered Pakistan to a above par score. Rahman was the best bowler in the first half as he finished with a fifer. It though is for a losing cause as Bangladesh fell well short of Pakistan's total.
The Pakistan bowling was top notch today! When you bowl an opposition out for 221 in, the bowling obviously has done well right? Shaheen though was the star as he finished with a 6-fer. Shadab Khan was on the expensive side but did take two wickets. Amir and Riaz took one each.
A very, very convincing win today for Pakistan! It was like, the Bangladesh batting line-up, which has been so good in this tournament, just never arrived. They needed to get off to a good start chasing 316 but they lost Sarkar early. Tamim had another poor outing with the bat. Rahim too did not last for long. Shakib once again was the only one who showed resistance. Das did hang around with him but perished just as the two started to get going. Shakib soon followed and once he fell, it seemed like Bangladesh had given up. Mahmudullah and Hossain played with no intent and when they decided to step on the gas, they could not find the boundaries and one by one, perished and were bowled out for a moderate total.
The Pakistan players walk off with a smile and a very nice gesture by them as they give Shoaib Malik a guard of honour. Well deserved that as he has served his country for a very long time and done so really well.

Shaheen Afridi to Liton Das, OUT! CAUGHT! Soft, soft dismissal. Brilliant from Shaheen Afridi. The bowling change has worked wonders.

Das initially looks to drive but the ball comes off slow from the surface. He looks to check his shot but it hits the bat and lobs towards cover where Sohail takes a dolly. Pakistan continue to hold the edge in the game.

st Innings Pakistan
Imam-ul-Haq says he feels great and even special as it was good for the team. States the wicket seems a little slow and it might just get slower. Mentions his partnership with Azam was good and now they need to bowl well since Bangladesh are a good batting side. On trying to score 400 he says, they needed to be realistic and Bangladesh were bowling really well. Reckons the conditions were not easy and their plan was to score something around 300 or 320. Ends by saying he could not do a lot about his dismissal, he would have been happy if this ton would have come earlier in the tournament, he was trying hard but was unable to and now it is important to win this game.
Now then! The target is similar to what Bangladesh could not chase against India. They do have a batting line-up which is capable of doing it but Pakistan have been bowling well recently. A side which is in-form with the bat vs a side which is in-form with the ball. A cracking chase awaits. For now, Imam-ul-Haq is giving an interview.
The Bangladesh bowling was very good to begin with! Mehedi Hasan especially as he bowled a very economic spell. However, once Powerplay 1 ended, they weren't that good and leaked runs in the middle overs. They finished strongly, like they have been doing in the tournament. Saifuddin and Rahman once again were influential at the end. The former finished with a three-fer and the latter with a fifer.
A strong batting performance by Pakistan has come to an end! Yes, it is not a score which could help them qualify but it never looked like that was on their mind. After electing to bat, people expected them to come out all guns blazing but that was not the case. Their openers started off cautiously. They lost Zaman as he tried to break free. However, Azam and Imam then got themselves in and added a 157-run stand for the second wicket. That stand helped lay the foundation. Azam fell in the 90s but Imam continued and got to a ton. There was another handy stand between him and Hafeez but once the opener got out, Pakistan seemed to lose their way. Haris and Hafeez did not contribute a lot. Sarfaraz went back in retired hurt. Imad though stepped up to the occasion and his cameo towards the end took Pakistan close to 320.

Mustafizur Rahman to Sarfaraz Ahmed, NO hat-trick as Sarfaraz negotiates the last ball watchfully. This is on a length and around middle, Sarfaraz defends it on the off side for one! Just the 7 runs and two wickets from the last over. PAKISTAN FINISH WITH 315!
So Sarfaraz does walk out to bat. He has one ball to face.

This is short and around middle, Amir makes room and looks to cut but it is too close to play that shot. He gets an outside edge to the keeper. Amir initially starts walking but then seeing the umpire not raises his finger, he stops. Rahman then puts in an appeal and the umpire does raise it this time. Rahman is on a hat-trick here.

It goes towards third man where Mahmudullah runs in and takes a catch. 4th wicket for Rahman, he has two more balls to get a fifer.

Mohammad Saifuddin to Babar Azam, OUT! No inside edge and Azam is a goner! Three reds too. Not sure why he reviewed, maybe because he was into his 90s. Well, he takes Pakistan's sole review along with him. Saifuddin has the last laugh. He bowls a yorker on middle, Azam looks to flick but misses to get hit on the pads. An appeal follows and the umpire raises the finger. Azam straightaway reviews. Time for the replays and they show that it is hitting middle and leg stump. Heartbreak for Babar as he misses out on a ton by just the 4 runs. Much-needed wicket for Bangladesh. The mammoth stand has been broken. Bangladesh will hope this is the opening they wanted.
Azam is a goner! He has been given out LBW. He has reviewed though. If no inside edge, this is plumb.

Mohammad Saifuddin to Fakhar Zaman, OUT! Straight to the man and Saifuddin draws first blood! Zaman stands there in shock as he has got dismissed on a delivery which he surely should have hit to the fence. This is full and wide outside off. Zaman throws his bat at it. He though does not keep it down and also does not find the gap. It goes quickly to Hasan at backward point who takes a sharp chance. The tight bowling by Bangladesh has paid off. Zaman walks back for another low score.

But Imam is ball-watching and sends Zaman back. Fakhar has to do a U-turn and luckily for him, the fielder just about takes a wee bit of extra time to throw. Makes it in, does the southpaw.

Interesting choice to give Saifuddin the new ball. One of the reasons why Bangladesh have been struggling in this tournament is that their fast bowlers or say, new-ball bowlers have not struck. Saifuddin has bowled the most yorkers in this tournament. Can he help Bangladesh to do well today?

Mehedi Hasan to Imam-ul-Haq, Good stop by Mahmudullah at short fine leg. He is coming off an injury to his calf, so that is a good way to test it. Full and down the leg side, Imam gets across and whips it through fine leg. The former captain dives to his left and makes a fine tumbling stop. A quiet over to start off mission 500.

The anthems are done and dusted and the Bangladesh team gets into a huddle. Out come the Pakistan openers - Fakhar Zaman and Imam-ul-Haq. It will be spin to start off proceedings. Mehedi Hasan it will be. Zaman to face. Here we go!
Time for the national anthems. Bangladesh's first.
Bangladesh (Playing XI) - Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim(wk), Mahmudullah (IN FOR SABBIR RAHMAN), Liton Das, Mosaddek Hossain, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mehidy Hasan (IN FOR RUBEL HOSSAIN), Mashrafe Mortaza(c), Mustafizur Rahman.
Pakistan (UNCHANGED Playing XI) - Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Haris Sohail, Sarfaraz Ahmed(c and wk), Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan, Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Amir, Shaheen Afridi.
Bangladesh captain, Mashrafe Mortaza, says that he too, would have loved to bat first as the wicket looks a used one. Now, he says that he is looking forward to bowl well and restrict Pakistan to a chaseable total. On the team changes, Mashrafe informs that Mahmudullah is fit and replaces Sabbir Rahman. Adds that Mehedi Hasan comes back in for Rubel Hossain. On Bangladesh's 4-0 record against Pakistan of late in ODIs, Mortaza says that is a nice record and hopes to do well today too. On Bangladesh never having won 4 games in a World Cup edition, Mortaza hopes that it happens today. On this being his last World Cup, Mash hopes to sign off in style.
Pakistan skipper, Sarfraz Ahmed, says that batting first is their only chance and he would now hope his team gets a big score on the board. On the team changes, Ahmed says that the target is to score a huge amount of runs but they are going in with the same team. On their loss to West Indies in the tournament opener, Sarfaraz admits that every match in such a tournament is huge but they are looking to put that beyond them and win today.
TOSS - Time for the most important aspect of the game. The toss. Sarfaraz Ahmed spins the coin, Tails is the call from Mashrafe Mortaza, but Heads it is! Pakistan elect to BAT FIRST. Well at least, they have 1 percent chance to qualify now.
PITCH REPORT - Ramiz Raja says that the pitch is tailor-made for Pakistan. There is a lot of greenery he adds, which should provide a bit of pace. Feels the conditions are good for batting.
WEATHER - It is a pleasant atmosphere in London and there are no chances of rain.
As we approach the end of the league stages of the World Cup, another dead rubber is on the cards as Pakistan take on Bangladesh. Dead rubber, do we say? Don't Pakistan have a chance? They sure do. Only, they need to ensure they bat first and win by a minimum of 316 runs. Mission 500 is on then. Bangladesh, no doubt, will be aiming to extend their winning run over Pakistan, having won the last 4 ODI encounters on the trot. Who will prevail? Hello and a warm welcome to game 43 from Lord's.

Where to bowl to Kane Williamson, and why: Back of length, width, cutters, left-arm spin

As invulnerable as he has seemed, Kane Williamson's not beyond flaws and faults, which the razor-sharp Indian bowling could look to probe.

Kane Williamson: Nice guy who came first

Kane Williamson does not have the fanfare or showmanship of his uber-cool contemporaries; it’s his friendly disposition, languid strokeplay and clinical zeal to complete the task at hand that appeals the New Zealand captain to his fans the world over.
