Pakistan, after beating New Zealand in the tightest match of the World T20 so far, take on Bangladesh in the last round match of Group D at the Pallekele Cricket Stadium in Kandy, Sri Lanka.
The equation is simple: Pakistan need to win and will also take a washout to advance to the Super Eights round. Bangladesh, on the other hand need to beat Pakistan by 36 or more runs or, if they bat second, achieve the target in 9.64 runs per over to go through.
New Zealand have already qualified for the round of eight on the basis of their superior net run-rate despite losing their second match to Pakistan.

BOUNDARY- Akmal ends it with a thump straight down the ground, an exclamation mark, perhaps, to what Imran Nazir did earlier. Not much between the sides, brilliant batting and equally terrible bowling from both. Bangladesh's effort with the ball was a mirror-image of Pakistan's show earlier on. Nazir was selective and the best thing about his 36-ball 72 was the fact he was willing to pull out of shots when he found himself out of position. Pakistan join Australia, India and South Africa in Colombo which has already seen two wash-outs in the group stage.
Prakash Wakankar, BBC Test Match Special says, "Pakistan have always been entertainers, there's just sometimes been a question about their temperament." Vic Marks, adds, "You wouldn't have picked out Imran Nazir as one of the most dangerous batsmen before this tournament."
BOUNDARY- Four and a six. Jamshed on the attack. The batsman lucky to have survived after fielder caught the ball and back-pedalled into the boundary. Akmal takes another four, 17 from that Mahmudullah over.
BOUNDARY- Jamshed cuts a real loose one from Abul Hasan for four before hammering him over square leg for six. Akmal joins the fun with two fours of his own. Hasan's nightmare over ends, 19 from it. PAK 150/2 in 16.
WICKET- Hafeez follows Nazir. Can Bangladesh change the script? Kamran Akmal in.
WICKET- Bangladesh finally get their man. Nazir tries to swat anther short one but connects with the toe of the bat and is caught at long off. Abul Hasan takes the wicket.
BOUNDARY- Nazir fetches Abul Hasan's slower ball from outside off to cow corner for four.
Pakistan continue to attack and for a change it is Nazir who looks like the more stable out of the two batsmen. 118 in 13 overs. 58 off 42.
BOUNDARY- Hafeez gets the strike, flicks and pulls Razzak for two consecutive fours.
BOUNDARY- Change in bowling but Nazir continues. Mahmudullah cut powerfully for four. Nazir 61 off 29, his fifty is the fastest in World T20.
BOUNDARY- SIX! Shakib drops it half-way, Nazir says thank you and hits him over leg.
BOUNDARY- Hasan tries another short one and Nazir is up to the task, four runs.
Abul Hasan into the attack and straight away gets some bounce.
BOUNDARY- Nazir comes down the wicket and flays Razzaq through the covers. Bangladesh fans think its over but even at 77/0 in 8, there is a long way to go.
APPEAL- Shakib should have had a wicket here. He starts with one that hit Nazir PLUMB in front.
BOUNDARY- Razzaq is short and wide and Nazir makes full use. 64/0 in 6.
Abdur Razzaq comes in. Ideally, should have started.
BOUNDARY- First Hafeez and then Nazir. Mashrafe being taken to task -4, 4, 6. Is Bangladesh leaving its spinners for too late. Pak 58/0 in 5.
BOUNDARY- Nazir continues as the fourth ball is smashed for a six over midwicket. 20 runs off that Shafiul over.
BOUNDARY- Three fours in a row! Nazir swats Shafiul like Djokovic before gloving one for four after an attempted pull. The next one he connects with the bat, speeds to the square-leg boundary.
APPEAL- Hafeez survives an LBW appeal off the bowling of Shafiul. Just clipping leg.
