Asian teams compete in the renowned cricket competition known as the Asia Cup.


Pakistan and Bangladesh squared off in the opening Super 4 encounter of the Asia Cup.

The match's toss took a little longer than expected.

The Pakistani team included Shahin Afridi, who has taken the most wickets this year.

Shanto, Pakistan's leading scorer, was unable to play because of an injury.

In a cricket match, injuries can have a substantial effect on a team's performance.

In the Asia Cup, Bangladesh and Pakistan have historically played competitive cricket matches.

The outcome of the Super 4 games will determine whether teams move on to the tournament's knockout rounds.

Tosses that are delayed can occasionally throw off the team's planning and tactics.
