Asia Cup 2012 Final: Pakistan Win, Bangladesh Falter in Final

Bangladesh won the toss and restricted Pakistan again to a low score of 236/9. But, considering their debacle against Pakistan chasing almost the same total at group stage, fans will keep the fingers crossed before any celebration unless the winning run is scored. Tamim and Shakib again fired scoring half-centuries, but rest could not support them. After losing their first final earlier by 2 wickets against SL, now they lost their 2nd final by 2 runs to Pakistan, who won their 2nd Asia Cup.
