The battle of bragging rights is set to unfold when Pakistan take on Bangladesh in both the teams' final World Cup 2019 fixture at Lord's in London. After an ordinary campaign, Pakistan will look to finish the tournament on a winning note as they are mathematically already out of the race for a spot in the semi-finals.

Bangladesh, who have been spectacular in this World Cup, would be eyeing to hand a defeat to their Asian rivals and conclude what has been their most successful World Cup campaign. Shakib Al Hasan has emerged as an incredible match-winner in this competition both with bat and ball. In their last group stage fixture against Pakistan, the Mashrafe Mortaza-led side can be expected to give Pakistan a run for their money.
