Bangladesh is unable to win any game out of two whereas Pakistan grabbed one, lost another and it will be an important match especially for the visitors. The Bengal Tigers were beaten all ends up with a vast margin by West Indies and India.The Green Shirts lost their opening match against their arch rivals Blue Shirts by seven wickets and defeated Australia by 16 runs in the second one.
Anamul Haque is the only competent batsman of Bangladesh but Mushfiqur Rahim and Nasir Hossain can play an important role. The all round performance of Shakib Al Hasan will be required and Abdur Razzak can be a vital spinner.
Umar Akmal demonstrated a match winning innings against Australia whereas their skipper, Mohammad Hafeez, and Ahmed Shehzad should come out of their shells. Zulfiqar Babar and Saeed Ajmal will be the difficult bowlers to be handled by the rival batsmen.
