The Sportskeeda coverage for the India vs UAE match starts at 6 PM IST tomorrow! We hope to have your company for that! See you tomorrow, folks! Goodbye and Goodnight!
...
So, the big final is all set to be played between India and Bangladesh on March 6! But that's not the only game that's left in the tournament. India take on UAE in a dead rubber tomorrow and Pakistan take on Sri Lanka in another game on March 4.
...
"It's a big match for us, just like a semi-final," says Mortaza. "We coped up with the pressure nicely, and that helped us in the games," he adds. He also thanks the crowd for their support!
...
Soumya Sarkar is the Man of the Match for this game who played a crucial knock of 48 (48)!
...
"We keep repeating our mistakes again and again, it was not a good total, still 20 runs short," says Shahid Afridi during the post-match presentation. "We'll focus on the World T20 now," he adds.
...
Time for post-match presentation!
...
Credits must not be taken away, however, from Soumya Sarkar, who played a match-winning innings of 48, and Mahmudullah's finishing cameo of 22 (15). Mortaza's two boundaries in the 19th over must not be forgotten either!
...
The 19th over by Sami that cost Pakistan 15 runs made all the difference. Sami committed a crime by bowling not one but two no-balls and gave away the match thne and there.
...
...
Excellent performance by Bangladesh. They are through to their second Asia Cup final where they meet India on March 6.
...
"We kept wickets in hand and Soumya Sarkar played a crucial knock. That made the difference," says Mahmudullah.
...
19.1 Ali to Mahmudullah, FOUR! Mahmudullah finishes it for his side. Length ball, and dispatched over midwicket for four! Another historic win for Bangladesh! They had beaten Sri Lanka, and now, they have beaten Pakistan, and are in their 2nd Asia Cup final.
...
...
Anwar Ali has three to defend from the last over!
...
18.6 FREE HIT! Sami to Mahmudullah, one run, played over midwicket! Was played in the air but fell short of fielder at deep midwicket!
...
18.6 Sami to Mahmudullah, NO BALL! FOUR! What has Sami done? He has bowled another no-ball, which Mahmudullah carves between point and gully for a four! Has Sami given it away in this over?
...
18.5 Sami to Mahmudullah, 2 runs, hit down the ground in the gap between long off and long on
...
18.4 Sami to Mortaza, FREE HIT! one run, full ball, fielded at point!
...
18.4 Sami to Mortaza, NO BALL! Mortaza hits it over mid off, long off takes it, and celebrates (unaware of the no-ball) by throwing the ball up in the air. Meanwhile, Mortaza had seen the umpire signalling the no ball, and calls his partner back for two! Full drama! Pakistanis wait for the ball thrown up in the air to come down, and by the time it came down, Bangladesh had already collected two!
...
18.3 Sami to Mahmudullah, 1 run, yorker on leg stump, Mahmudullah somehow squeezes a single out of it by playing it towards covers
...
18.2 Sami to Mortaza, 1 run, full and straight, Mortaza hits it towards long off
...
18.1 Sami to Mahmudullah, 1 run, played towards long-on
...
Mohammad Sami to bowl the penultimate over! He would look to make up for the misfield in the last over!
...
17.6 Amir to Mortaza, no run, full and wide, Mortaza misses who had backed away too far outside leg. Dot ball again!

17.5 Amir to Mortaza, no run, full and wide, Mortaza misses who had backed away too far outside leg. Dot ball!
