The Final game of 11th Asia Cup Cricket,2012 began with a number of surprises.Bangladesh won the toss and chose fielding.Mohammad Hafeez and Nasir Jamshed were the first pair to strike from Pakistan side. Nasir Jamshed was out
with his personal score of 9 .The score of Pakistan Team was 16 at the time of his departure.Their team was under intense pressure from Bangladesh side.Younis Khan replaced Nasir Jamshed who soon went out of the pitch with only one run.Third surprise was the run out of Misbah-ul-Huq with 13 score and Team score of 55 for 3 wicket.
Pakistan Team played very hard and scored 236 for 9.On the other hand Bangladesh chased the score of Pakistan very cautiously and showed great perserverence to win.But they had to stop at 234 for 8.The gap of 2 was too close to touch Pakistani score yet it was very far from victory.Things could have been different if Bangladesh could gain another 3 runs.
Though 11th Asia Cup Cricket,2012 has gone to Paskistan,the final game was a great show of magical and dramatic
performance of both sides.The spectators of Bangladesh had high expectations.But in the long run they will understand that the players of Bangladesh Team really struggled hard to present the Bangladeshi people with an amazing gift.
