That's it from this game. The last T20I of this series is a dead rubber to be played on 27th January 2020 in The Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore at 1400 local (0900 GMT). We would love your company for that game. Till then take care and goodbye.
Man Of The Match and Pakistan skipper, Babar Azam says that he continues to play in the momentum as he says that changing the momentum brings his downfall. He also adds that he tries to give his 100% in every game. Further says that captaincy and batting are two different things. He adds that captaincy is easy to do. He also says that they are happy to get a win and will want as many as they can before the T20 World Cup. Also says that they might test their bench strength in the last T20I.
Bangladesh skipper, Mahmudullah says that it is disappointing to lose the series but says the batting let them down. Further adds that apart from Tamim no one applied themselves. Credits the Pakistan bowlers for bowling in the right areas and keeping it tight. He says that they would try to check their bench strength and play fearless cricket in the last T20I.
Mohammad Hafeez says that he is happy to get back into the side and good to be back into the playing XI straightaway. He says that there is pressure from the fans and nothing from the media. He further adds that he spoke to Shoaib Malik and that has helped him to come back stronger. He signs by saying that it always is a confidence booster to end up on the winning side. Stay tuned for presentations.
The win was actually set-up by the Pakistan bowlers, they restricted the visitors to a modest total which was easily chased down. Hafeez is down on the sidelines for a chat.
Pakistan have made a mockery of the run chase! Too easy to be honest, 137 was never going to be enough and they have chased it down without breaking a sweat. They did lose Ali early but then, Hafeez and Azam joined hands and added an unbeaten 131-run stand with both scoring half tons. That is exactly what you need, one partnership when chasing a mediocre score and that is what they got.
Aminul Islam is on.
Mustafizur Rahman is on now.
Al-Amin Hossain is on now.
Mohammad Hafeez is the new man in. Can the professor teach the batting techniques today?
Shaiful Islam to bowl from the other end.
We are back! Babar Azam and Ahsan Ali to open the batting for the hosts. Mahedi Hasan to start with the ball.
