Bangladesh beat Pakistan by 37 runs in Asia Cup Super Four match on Wednesday, September 26th, 2018 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.

Live updates:

Pakistan 202 all out.

Bangladesh 239 in 50 overs

Bangladesh wins the toss and bats first.

The match is scheduled to start at 3:30 PM Local, 4:30 PM PST.

The winner of this crucial game will qualify for the final against India, which will be played at the Dubai International Stadium on September 28, 2018.

Pakistan has won one game and lost one in the Super Four round so far, while Bangladesh has an identical record in this round of the Asia Cup 2018.

Batting worries for Bangladesh

Bangladesh is coming into this game after winning a last over thriller against Afghanistan on Sunday. The side led by Masrafe Mortaza opted to play Imrul Kayes in the previous.

According to Cribuzz, the repeated failures of Nazmul Hossain as an opener might prompt them to bring in Soumya Sarkar, who was named as the replacement of Tamim Iqbal.

Rest of the side is expected to the same as the previous game.

Zaman and Amir's form concern for Pakistan

Pakistan lost their previous game against India by nine wickets, following a close win against Afghanistan. According to Cricbuzz, Fakhar Zaman's form in the Asia Cup has been poor, hence Pakistan can opt to play Shan Masood instead of him.

Shan Masood has done extremely well in the domestic circuit and his inclusion might be a bit of a surprise.

Mohammad Amir can also be dropped out of the team in favor of Usman Khan.

The pitch in Abu Dhabi has been really slow so far in this tournament and it is unlikely to change for this virtual semi-final. Chasing a target above 250 runs will be difficult on this track, hence the team who puts runs on the board will have a slight edge.

Watch match highlights:

The temperatures in Abu Dhabi is likely to above 40 degrees during the afternoon, while the open structure of the stadium might make things even more difficult for the players on the field.
