T20I: Pakistan clean sweep Bangladesh in thriller

Pakistan whitewashed Bangladesh in the T20I series after the Men In Green won the third fixture by five wickets of the three-match series in Dhaka on Monday.

In today’s match, Mohammad Rizwan and Haider Ali played tremendously, but Bangladesh did not give up, as they mounted pressure in the death overs.

Bangladesh’s Mahmudullah dismissed Sarfaraz Ahmed, Haider Ali, and Iftikhar Ahmed  in the last over, when Pakistan needed just eight runs off six balls.

On the last ball, Pakistan needed two runs to beat Bangladesh and Mohammad Nawaz did not disappoint, as he hit a boundary to help his team clean sweep the series.

Earlier, Bangladesh put up yet another mediocre display of batting against the Men in Green on Monday, handing Pakistan a 125-run target to chase. 

Mohammad Wasim and Usman Qadir picked up two wickets each as Haris Rauf and debutant Shahnawaz Dahani took one scalp each to keep the Bangladeshi batsmen at bay. 

It is pertinent to note that Pakistan made important changes to the squad by including former skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed, Shahnawaz Dahani, Iftikhar Ahmed and Usman Qadir in playing XI for the last match in place of Fakhar Zaman, Shoaib Malik, Shaheen Shah Afridi and Shadab Khan. 

On the other hand, Bangladesh have also made three changes bringing in Shamim Hossain, Shahidul Islam and Nasum Ahmed in place of Saif Hassan, Mustafizur Rahman and Shoriful Islam.

It merits mention that Pakistan with an immaculate performance clean sweeped the T20I series by winning all three matches against Bangladesh.
