Pakistan proved that it has what it takes to be an Asia Cup champion.
Team Green won the final match against Bangladesh on Thursday by two runs at the Sher-e-Bangla stadium in Dhaka.
After a nail-biting performance from both sides, Pakistan managed to bowl out the panicked Bangladeshi players in the last ten overs.
The wickets of Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim at short intervals gave Pakistan an advantage towards the end of the match.
A stellar bowling effort from Bangladesh in the first inning helped restrict Pakistan to 236.
Sarfraz Ahmed, who replaced Wahab Riaz, was the highest scorer for Pakistan at 46 runs. Shahid Afridi and Ahmed also put on a quick partnership of 45 runs to help stabilise the innings.
Mashrafe Mortaza, Abdur Razzak and Shakib Al Hasan took two wickets each.
