Bangladesh beat Pakistan after 16 years

Bangladesh on Friday recorded their second one-day international victory over Pakistan after the famous win in a world cup match in 1999.

The Tigers beat the visitors by 79 runs in the first meet of the three-match series in a day-night match at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur.

When Shakib Al Hasan had Saeed Ajmal lbw as the last batsman of the Pakistan side, the crowd at the stadium burst into laughter at the win which looked to be comfortable in the end.

Bangladesh lodged their claim when the Tigers, spearheaded by Tamim Iqbal and Musfiqur Rahim scored 329 runs for 6 after electing to bat first. Both hit centuries in their record partnership.
