Some ridiculously over inflated averages for Pakistan's top 3. Been minnow bashing Zimbabwe minus their best players. Fakar averaging 70+, Imam 70+ and Babar 50+.

Both Imam and Fakhar have couple of big not outs which help but I guess scoring heavily against Zimbabwe isn't bad for a new comer as it helps their confidence level rise up.

Babar looked good vs England.  Neat and tidy, though seems like he was looking to score a bit quickly.

Whenever I hear some "associate" captain's interview, they complain about out lack of opportunities against full-fledged member teams. These young associate teams are no match for Pakistan but at least they are getting an opportunity to play against an established setup. I think Pakistan are being a good sport about giving opportunities to the associate teams. Look how well Bangladesh and Afghanistan are playing now. Everyone deserve a brake once in a while.

I know people. Let me know if you are interested in playing against Pakistan. I'd put a good word in for a friendly match between your Chipotle-11 and some Pakistan side.

Just Kidding.

If that game isn't a sign that the ICC needs to support the associates more I don't know what is...

Serious going by Hong Kong. Also interesting to see a player my team has played against in the match.

Fakar and Imam must be dreaming of facing Zimbabwe again in the near future as Kumar grabbed both for ducks in Dubai

Chalk and cheese for India within the space of 24hrs. Went life and death with Hong Kong and absolutely hammered Pakistan.
Pandya and Shadab seem to have picked up injuries.

India tweeted that Pandya had an acute lower back injury but was able to stand up. Surely he should be in hospital for scans to make sure there is no serious damage?

Has Bangladesh done enough in one days and T20 to be considered number 3 side in Asia behind India and Pakistan?  They have definitely played better than Bangladesh and Sri Lanka recently and they might be just be half a length behind Pakistan based on the performance in Asia Cup.  They destroyed Bangladesh today.  Now test cricket is a different story but they have only played one test so far.  I get the feeling that they play as a team and are not reliant on any single person to win every game for them other than maybe Rashid.

Bangladesh are a good side in sub continental conditions, just they got shell shocked by Rashid Khan's swashbuckling half century that essentially took the game away from the Tigers. Their woes are compounded by Tamim getting his wrist broken against Sri Lanka

Elsewhere Hardik Pandya is out of the tournament with back spasms, Shadrul Thakur groin injury and Axar Patel damaged a finger on his bowling hand.

Funny old game cricket, Fakhar must've thought he was a world beater flogging around an under strength Zimbabwe side. Back to earth in the Asia cup consecutive ducks. Fakhar must be hoping Inzy can line up another 5 match series against Zimbabwe so he can dip his bread again...

India battered Bangladesh in the first 'super 4' match. The Tigers could only muster 173, mainly due to Mehadi getting 40 odd. Jadeja, Bumrah and Kumar took all ten wickets between themselves. Rohit helped himself to 83*.
