Pakistan have won their 1⃣st Group 2 match in the World T20🏆 at Kolkata as they defeated Bangladesh convincingly by 55 runs in Kolkata👏. Pakistan chose to bat first on a flat track and were off to a quick start💨 as Ahmed Shehzad(52) and Mohammed Hafeez(64) took the Bangladeshi bowlers to task. Pakistan brought up their 100 in just 11.2 overs😳 and even Shehzad's dismissal in the 14th over failed to bring any relief😟 for Mortaza's men. In came Afridi and he went 'boom-boom💥', hitting a 19 ball 49, reminiscent of his heyday😍. Pakistan finished at 201/5, a total which proved to be beyond the reach of Bangladesh today👎. Pakistan's bowlers were on the money with their line and length and managed to stifle Bangladesh to 146/6, despite Shakib's fighting 50*.
This will be a huge boost🚀 to Pakistan ahead of their much-anticipated clash against 🇮🇳.
