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 lined 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 10.30 am local (0930 GMT). The second begins at 1.30 pm local (1230 GMT). Till then, goodbye and take care!

Pakistan skipper, Sarfaraz Ahmed, 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 Mustafizur 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 as they could not qualify for the semis but he is happy they gave their 100 percent. 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 yorkers, 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, 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.
