Bangladesh remain winless in tri-series involving Pakistan, NZ

Bangladesh endured their fourth sucessive defeat in the T20 tri-series, this time going down to Pakistan by seven wickets in Christchurch. Pakistan, thanks to this win, finished at par with New Zealand on six points and will now meet them in the final on Friday. It has been a miserably poor campaign for the Asian Tigers, one that will hurt their confidence ahead of the T20 World Cup.

Brief Scores: Bangladesh 173/6 in 20 overs (Liton Das 69, Shakib Al Hasan 68; Naseem Shah 2-27) lost to Pakistan 177/3 in 19.5 overs (Mohammad Rizwan 69, Babar Azam 55, Mohammad Nawaz 45*; Hasan Mahmud 2-27) by 7 wickets
