Pakistan beat Bangladesh

6:41 am on 30 November 2011

Off-spinners Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik grabbed two wickets apiece to lead Pakistan to a comfortable 50-run win over Bangladesh in a low-scoring, one-off Twenty20 cricket international in Dhaka.

Bangladesh, replying to Pakistan's modest 135 for seven, narrowly avoided their record T20 low of 78 before finishing their chase on 85 for nine.

Nasir Hossain scored 35 not out to help Bangladesh past their lowest score but it was nowhere near enough against a Pakistani side playing their 50th Twenty20 International.
