Pakistan pull off a two run victory against Bangladesh in a thriller Final to take Asia Cup
March 22, 2012Bangladesh needed 4 runs from the last ball to take their first Aisa Cup, but were only able to score 2 runs.

For Pakistan, Sarfraz Ahmed and Mohammed Hafeez made notable contributions of 46 and 40 runs respectively.
Bangladesh started off swinging, with opener Tamim Iqbal scoring 60 runs. They lost their first wicket only in the 16th over, when Nazimuddin fell to Afridi for 16. Jahurul Islam fell for no runs in the very next over. Shakib Al Hasan was the top batsman for Bangladesh scoring 68 runs. He was also named Player of the Series.

Reported earlier: Indian cricket fans will be praying for a Sri Lankan victory when they take on hosts Bangladesh today in their last league match, the result of which will determine India's fate in the Asia Cup cricket tournament. Virat Kohli smashed a blistering 183 off 148 balls as India produced their highest ever run chase to beat Pakistan by six wickets on Sunday.

Virat Kohli spearheads India's highest-ever run chase in ODIs, beat Pakistan by 6 wickets
March 18, 2012Chasing a huge target of 330 to win, India rode on Virat Kohli’s career-best 183 to reach the target in 47.5 overs losing only 4 wickets. He clobbered 183 off 148 balls with the help of 22 boundaries and a six, to help India register their highest-ever run chase in one-day cricket.
Kohli and Tendulkar (52 off 48) added 133 runs for the second wicket after they lost opener Gautam Gambhir in the very first over of the game. Kohli later added 172 runs for the third wicket with Rohit Sharma (68 off 83). For Pakistan, openers Hafeez and Nasir Jamshed smashed centuries as Pakistan reached a formidable 329-6 after winning the toss.

Reported earlier: The sub-continental rivals gear up for a vital clash in the Asia Cup at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium on Sunday, in which India has to defeat Pakistan to stay alive in the tournament. For Pakistan the encounter is a chance for them to avenge the World Cup semi-final defeat in Mohali (by 29 runs) on Mar 30, 2011, their last meeting. In the 2010 Asia cup too, Pakistan lost to India (by 3 wickets).
Asia Cup Match 5: India 330/4 in 47.5 (Sachin 52, Kohli 183, Rohit 68) beat Pakistan 329/6 in 50 ov (Mohammad Hafeez 105, Nasir Jamshed 112) by 6 wickets
Asia Cup: India vs Bangladesh
Bangladesh beat India by 5 wickets despite Sachin scoring his 100th hundred.
March 16, 2012Sachin Tendulkar scored his 100th international century on Friday against Bangladesh in the Asia Cup encounter at Mirpur, Dhaka. The 38-year-old completed his landmark century, his 49th in one-day cricket, in 138 balls. The right-hander, who holds the record for scoring the most Test and one-day runs, has also scored 51 Test tons.
India, who batted first were able to get a respectable score of 283 at the loss of 5 wickets. The Little Master's much awaited 100th hundred was definitely the highlight of the Indian innings. Virat Kohli's 66 and Raina's 51 also contributed to the total. The Bangladesh innings hit a bump when they lost opener Nazimuddin in the 4th over, but the rest of the line-up held up leading Bangladesh to their first win against India in 5 years. Though Tamim Iqbal was the top-scorer, it was some splendid batting by Shakib Al Hasan (49 off 31 balls) and Mushfiqur Rahim (46 off 25 balls, not out) that helped Bangladesh pull off this huge upset.
The next match is the highly anticipated India - Pakistan clash which will take place on March 18th. The two rivals haven't played against each other in more than a year. India need a win against Pakistan to get into the Asia Cup final, especially after this unexpected loss to Bangladesh today.
Asia Cup Match 4: Bangladesh 293/5 in 49.2 ov (Tamim Iqbal 70, Kumar 3-56) beat India 289/5 in 50 ovs (Tendulkar 114, Kohli 66, Raina 51)
Asia Cup: Pakistan vs Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka out of Asia Cup after losing to Pakistan
March 15, 2012Sri Lanka, who needed a win to keep their hopes of reaching the final alive, played poor shots and threw their wickets away as Pakistan picked up the last six for just 27 runs at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium on Wednesday. Chasing a modest victory target of 188 runs, Pakistan batted sensibly after losing three quick wickets. They were tottering at 33/3 at one stage, but skipper Misbahul Haq (76 not out off 93 balls) and young Umar Akmal (77 off 72 balls) halted further loss and steadied the innings with a 153-runs fourth wicket partnership.
If India beat Bangladesh on Thursday, fans can look forward to two India-Pakistan games, the round-robin match on Sunday and then the final on Thursday.
Asia Cup Match 3: Pakistan 189/4 in 39.5 ovs (Misbah-ul-Haq 72, Umar Akmal 77) beat Sri Lanka 188 in 45.4 (Sangakkara 71, Tharanga 57, Cheema 4-43) by 6 wickets

Earlier Gautham Gambhir (100) and Kohli (108) put on a 205-run partnership for the second wicket after India lost Sachin for just 6. It was Kohli's 10th ODI ton in just his 80th innings, which obliterated the previous record of 99 innings set by Gordon Greenidge.
The defending champions ended up with 304 for 3 wickets in their 50 overs with the help of some lusty hits by captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni (46* off 26 balls) and Suresh Raina (30* off 17 balls) in the slog overs.
Asia Cup Match 2: India 304/3 in 50 ov (Gambhir 100, Kohli 108) beat Sri Lanka 254 in 45.1 ovs (Sangakkara 65, Jayawardene 78) by 50 runs

Umesh, Zaheer rested, Sachin Tendulkar in Asia Cup squad
February 29, 2012The 15-member squad for the Asia Cup announced on Wednesday did not feature Virender Sehwag, Zaheer Khan and Umesh Yadav. The Board for Control of Cricket in India said Sehwag has been rested on fitness grounds, but there are reports that this is a fallout from the Dhoni vs Sehwag spat. Selection committee chairman Krishnamachari Srikkanth however told the reporters that opener Virender Sehwag and pace spearhead Zaheer Khan were not dropped and have been "rested purely on fitness ground". Besides the two, young pacer Umesh Yadav has also been left out of the team because of injury concern. Tendulkar, who made 143 runs in 7 matches in Australia, with a best of 48 has been stuck on 99 international centuries since March 12, 2011. He will get chance to reach the unprecedented landmark in Bangladesh.
India Squad: MS Dhoni (Captain), Virat Kohli (Vice-Captain), Sachin Tendulkar, Gautam Gambhir, Suresh Raina, Rohit Sharma, R Ashwin, Praveen Kumar, Ravindra Jadeja, R Vinay, Rahul Sharma, Yusuf Pathan, Irfan Pathan, Ashok Dinda.

Shafiul Islam, who passed a last minute fitness test, took four wickets for 10 runs in five overs to send Ireland crashing to a 27 runs defeat as Bangladesh ended three years, 10 months and 10 days of waiting for revenge for their defeat at the last World Cup in Barbados.
Andre Botha (3-32) was the pick of the Irish bowlers, but they were reduced to 110-5 in reply on a slow pitch. Niall O'Brien (38) and Kevin O'Brien (37) got the Irish close, but they were 178 all out.

ICC World Cup Match 1, India v Bangladesh, Group B - Preview
Feb 19, 2011India takes on Bangladesh in the 2011 World Cup opener on Saturday in Dhaka's Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium with a chance to exact revenge for a shock loss in the previous edition four years ago which ensured India's early exit in the first round of the 2007 tournament in the Caribbean. On paper, the day-night clash may look like a no-contest with tournament favourites India having won 20 of their 22 one-day matches against the Tigers.
India have enjoyed an impressive run over the last three years, which has taken Dhoni's men to the top of the Test rankings and made them number two behind Australia in the one-dayers. With Sehwag, Sachin, Gambhir and Yuvraj Singh adding to a top-heavy line-up and Dhoni and the explosive Yusuf Pathan coming down the order, Harbhajan Singh has been pushed to number eight despite two Test centuries to his credit.

Dhoni got good support from Ishant Sharma (13) and the duo added 51 runs for the seventh wicket. After Ishant's dismissal, Dhoni and Pragyan Ojha (1) scored 26 runs. Yuvraj Singh didn't bat due to a ligament tear in his left wrist, and has been ruled out for the rest of the ongoing second Test.
India's lead of 311 was reduced to 84 as Tamim hit a brisk 151 and was involved in a 200-run stand with Junaid Siddique (55). The stand between Iqbal and Siddique is the highest ever for Bangladesh for any wicket. At stumps, Bangladesh were 228 for three.

Gautam Gambhir (68) missed out on equalling Sir Don Bradman's record of six 100s in consecutive Test matches, but equalled the record for most consecutive half-centuries in Tests - 11, with Viv Richards. He and Virender Sehwag (56) put on 103 for the opening wicket before Tendulkar and Dravid consolidated their team's position with a 222-run stand for the third wicket.

Dhoni to miss first Test against Bangladesh
January 16, 2010Mahendra Singh Dhoni has again been ruled out of a Test match because of back spasms, and Virender Sehwag will be leading the newly crowned number one test team. Sehwag, meanwhile, angered the hosts by terming the tigers as an “ordinary side” adding they do not have the bowling power to take 20 Indian Test wickets. India's batting has been reinforced with the return of veterans Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and Venkatsai Laxman.
In reply, Bangladesh skipper Shakib Al Hasan said that his team is capable of giving a good fight. He added, "India have been ranked number one only recently. I think South Africa and Australia are much better than them."

Bangladesh Cricket Board move series start times
January 07, 2010The Bangladesh Cricket Board has brought forward the start of matches in the one-day triangular series with Sri Lanka and India in an effort to reduce the effect of dew on the result of games. All matches played so far have overwhelmingly favoured teams batting second as the dew made it difficult for bowlers of the team fielding second to grip the ball. This came in for severe criticism from the captains of the three teams.
Rest of the matches will begin 30 minutes earlier than the originally scheduled 2.30 pm local-time start.
Dhaka Tri-series Match 3: India beat Bangladesh by six wickets

Pakistan in Bangladesh Cricket Series 2009
Pakistan tour of Bangladesh postponed
Mar 05, 2009Pakistan's forthcoming tour of Bangladesh has been postponed due to security concerns.
The Bangladesh Cricket Board says the tour has been postponed on the advice of the government, although they have refused to say whether the decision was connected to the Lahore attack on the Sri Lanka cricket team or to the recent violence in Bangladesh.
The Pakistan team was scheduled to arrive in Bangladesh on Saturday for two Twenty20 matches and five one-day internationals. Pakistan and Bangladesh are co-hosts, along with India, for the 2011 World Cup.
In February, a mutiny by Bangladesh Rifles border guards over pay and command structure resulted in widespread violence that killed at least 80 people that included more than 50 officers.

He then dismissed Hamilton Masakadza (10) and Stuart Matsikenyeri (10) to put Bangladesh firmly in control. Masakadza tried to play a short ball but failed to adjust and the ball took the shoulder of the bat, presenting a catch to Mehrab Hossain at second slip. Matsikenyeri was clean bowled.
Hasan (3-15), who has been ranked as the top one-day all-rounder by the International Cricket Council, bowled Elton Chigumbura (7) then removed Ray Price (7) and had Ed Rainsford (1) stumped by wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim. Sean Williams was the best of Zimbabwe's batsmen with 38.
In reply, Bangladesh lost Mehrab Hossain and captain Mohammad Ashraful cheaply, but a 34 from Tamim Iqbal provided the basis of the run chase. The hosts slipped to 89-4 but Zimbabwe could not get further breakthroughs to expose Bangladeh's tail, as Hasan and Rahim guided the home team to victory.
