Fakhar Zaman and Shaheen Shah Afridi starred as Pakistan clinched the three-match T20I series against Bangladesh.

The Babar Azam-led unit registered an eight-wicket win on Saturday in the second match of the series in Dhaka.

Chasing 108, captain Babar Azam (one) departed early, as he dragged Mustafizur Rahman’s bowl on the stumps with just 12 runs on the scoreboard.

However, opener Mohammad Rizwan and Fakhar Zaman made a crucial stand of 85 runs for the second wicket.

At the score of 97, Rizwan (39) was sent back to the dugout by Aminul Islam, who ended up with the figures of one for 30 in his four-over spell.

Fakhar Zaman remained unbeaten on 57 of 51 balls as Pakistan reached the target in 18.1 overs with eight wickets in hand.

Earlier, Shaheen Shah Afridi ended up with figures of two for 20 in his four-over spell as Pakistan restricted Bangladesh to 108 in their allotted 20 overs.

Shaheen got the breakthrough in his first over of the innings when he sent Saif Hassan back to the dugout without troubling the scorers.

Mohammad Wasim Jr. followed Shaheen’s footsteps as he removed Mohammad Naim (two) in the very next over. At that stage, Bangladesh had only five runs on the scoreboard.

Najmul Hossain Shanto and Afif Hossain made a crucial stand for the third wicket. However, at the score of 51, the home side lost their third wicket in the shape of Afif Hossain.

He walked back to the pavilion after scoring 20 off 21 balls.

Shanto’s resistance came to an end in the 14th over of the game when he was caught and bowled by all-rounder Shadab Khan. He scored 40 off 34 balls with the help of five boundaries.

Captain Mahmudullah only managed to score 12 in the must win game.
