That's all we have folks for today! See you tomorrow for the match between Pakistan and UAE, which is a must win game for Pakistan. The Sportskeeda coverage begins at 6 PM IST. Cheers!
...
As for the next game of the Asia Cup, we have Pakistan taking on UAE tomorrow at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur, with the match set to begin at 6:50 PM IST.
...
So, a good performance by the Bangladeshi side as they now take on Pakistan in their next game.
...
Mortaza says that the wicket was on the slower side today, and praises Mahmudullah and Shakib for their slow bowling.
...
Mortaza, the Bangladeshi captain, signs a cricket ball for a fan, before saying that it was a good win for his side.
...
Rahman says that he just looked to rotate the strike and play his natural game.
...
Undoubtedly, Sabbir Rahman gets the Man of the Match award!
...
The Lankan also acknowledged the need for the senior players to step and perform including himself.
...
Mathews credits the Bangladeshi bowlers for their performance, while he said that the shot selection from their batsmen wasn't proper.

Chandimal top scored for Sri Lanka with a run-a-ball 37, but none of the other batsmen could really pose a challenge. Jayasuriya looked threatening, but was cleaned up smartly by Shakib.
...
Al-Amin was the best bowler for the hosts picking up 3 wickets, while Shakib picked up two. Mustafizur, Mortaza and Mahmudullah picked up one wicket a piece.
...
Good bowling performance by the Bangladeshi bowlers. 58/7 off the last 10 overs is what Sri Lanka could get. Speaks volumes about the way the Bangladeshi bowlers bowled. When Chandimal and Jayasuriya were batting, it looked like Sri Lanka would make it, but their departures opened the floodgates for Sri Lanka.
