Bangladesh will face Pakistan in the opening Asia Cup tournament

The first match of the four-nation Asia Cup is going to begin from tomorrow (11 March 2012) with the match between Bangladesh and Pakistan. This match is going to take place at Shere Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur. Cricket lovers all around the world can enjoy this day-night match live at 08:00 GMT and 14:00 local time.

The match between Bangladesh and Pakistan is going to be a tough game of this tournament. No doubt, Pakistan will be marked as favorite but host team will not be a less favorite than their opponent. It is known to all that Bangladesh is ranked as an underdog cricket team but they can make their opponent upset in their day. So, it will be highly expected for the home fans to see their team defeating Pakistan once again in the international cricket.

Pakistan cricket team is out of form. They had poor performance against England and lost the ODI and T20 series to them. Despite their recent slump of form, their new coach Dav Whatmore is confident about the performance of his team.

The strength of Pakistan cricket team is their bowling. They have bow pace bowlers like Umar Gul and Wahab Riaz who can be effective even in the slog overs while the spin trio of Saeed Ajmal, Abdul Rehman and Shahid Afridi will cause the great havoc with the ball.
