Pakistan vs Bangladesh (PAK vs BAN) 2nd T20I Highlights: Babar Azam and Mohammad Hafeez guide Pakistan to a resounding nine-wicket win over Bangladesh in the second T20I at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore on Saturday. The duo added 131 runs in 90 balls to help the hosts chase a paltry 137 in just 16.4 overs. With this win, the hosts have also taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series and the final encounter, which is a dead rubber, will be played on January 27 at the same venue.

Just like the previous encounter, the batting woes continued for the visitors in the second clash as they could only manage to post 136/6 at the end of 20 overs.

Pakistan entered the series on a threat of losing their no 1 ranking in the shorter format of the game. With two successive victories on the back of an imperious form shown by the entire Pakistani unit, it is anticipated that the hosts will face no problem in retaining the No 1 position if they go on to complete a clean sweep over their Asian opponent.

Bangladesh, on the other hand, would play for pride and seek for a solitary win in the final and third match of the series.
