Max ACC Emerging Teams Cup 2017: Bangladesh finish second after Pakistan tie
This saw Bangladesh move down to second place in the group in accordance with the net run rate. Pakistan emerged as group champion. Meanwhile in Group A, Afghanistan defeated India and pushed them out of the tournament. Afghanistan and Sri Lanka both needed wins in their respective last group games to stay alive in the tournament. The Lankans bagged an easy win against Malaysia while the Afghans beat India by two wickets. In the semi-finals, Bangladesh will face Sri Lanka while Pakistan will take on Afghanistan. Bangladesh’s ambition of reaching the last four as Group B champion ended in Cox’s Bazar's Sheikh Kamal International Cricket Stadium. Pakistan batted first after winning the toss and posted 233 runs on the board losing eight wickets. Top-order batsman Haris Sohail scored 63 while Hussain Talat remained unbeaten on 57. Right-arm pacer Mohammad Saifuddin picked up three wickets. In reply, Bangladesh captain Mominul Haque (75) built a few good partnerships. The diminutive batsman added 63 runs for the third wicket with Nazmul Hossain Shanto (30) and 73 alongside Mohammad Mithun (53) to take Bangladesh on the verge of victory.
