PAK beat BAN by seven wickets to clinch third win of 2023 World Cup
Summary of PAK vs BAN match: Star Fakhar Zaman (81) and bowlers were with them as Pakistan beat Bangladesh by seven wickets in the 2023 World Cup event in Kolkata on Tuesday.
Bangladesh’s decision to bat first after winning the toss backfired as they were bowled out for just 204 runs, with Shaheen Afridi and Mohammad Wasim Jr picking three wickets each.
In reply, Fakhar and Abdullah Shafique (68) led the way for the chase, before Mohammad Rizwan (26*) and Iftikhar Ahmed (17*) sealed the match with 17.3 overs to spare.

Preview: Barring a run to the semi-finals, Pakistan would be desperate to snap their four-match losing streak and appreciate their sluggish campaign when they face equally struggling Bangladesh in their do-or-die World Cup match.
Pakistan have just four points in the tournament and can add a maximum of six more to touch 10 by the end of the series.
There are already three teams above Pakistan and it would be a miracle if they make it to the knockout stage.
Pakistan will only have to win their remaining matches but they need to win by huge margins to increase their current net rate (currently minus 0.205). A win against Bangladesh will surely knock the 1992 champions out of the exhibition.
What let Pakistan down the most was their batsmen who failed to complete the full quota of 50 balls that lasted four overs.
Pakistan: Babar Azam (c), Shadab Khan, Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Abdullah Shafique, Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Saud Shakeel, Iftikhar Ahmed, Salman Ali Agha, Mohammad Nawaz, Usama Mir, Haris Rauf, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Aifry and Mohammad Wasim.
Bangladesh: Shakib Al Hasan (c), Litton Das (wk), Tanzid Hasan Tamim, Najmul Hossain Shanto (vc), Tawhid Hridoy, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Mahmudullah Riyad, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Nasum Ahmed, Mahedi Hasan, Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman, Hasan Mahmud, Shorriful Islam, Tanzim Hasan Sakib
