10:24 AM IST, 12:54 PM Local Time| Woah!! What a game we have witnessed. Bangladesh needed four runs of the last ball and Rakibul Hasan did it for them. Bangladesh players are leaping up in the air as they have beat Pakistan by 6 wickets(DLS Method)  and have won the Bronze Medal in the Asian Games 2023.

We had a long delay in the start in the play due to the rain interruption. The match was reduced to a 13-over-a-side game. Pakistan openers Khushdil Shah and Mirza Tahir Baig came with all guns blazing and glued a partnership of 47 runs for the first wicket. Rakibul Hasan got rid of Khushdil Shah in the 5 the over. Khushdil departed after scoring 14 runs. Omair Yousuf joined Mirza Tahir Baig out in the middle. Then the rain arrived and players had to walk off the field. Pakistan scored 48 runs in 5 overs and Baig scored 32* runs. 

Under the DLS method, Bangladesh's revised target was 65 runs in 5 overs. Bangladesh's start wasn't ideal, losing a couple of wickets in the first over. The responsibility then fell on Yasir Ali and Afif Hossain, who built a brisk 44-run partnership for the 3rd wicket.

Afif departed after contributing 20 runs, but Yasir Ali's aggressive play shifted the game in Bangladesh's favor. However, the tide turned again when Yasir Ali was dismissed on the penultimate ball, leaving Bangladesh needing 4 runs off the final ball. In a thrilling finish, Rakibul Hasan smashed the last ball for four runs, securing victory for Bangladesh and the coveted Bronze
πŸ₯‰ Medal.

4 FOUR! Woah, Rakibul Hasan, you beauty! Unbelievable scenes here in the Bangladesh camp and they are pumped up. Bangladesh win the last ball thriller and they win the Bronze Medal. Full and on the stumps. Rakibul Hasan shuffles a touch and whips across the line of the ball, connecting it well and the ball rockets away towards deep mid-wicket for a boundary. Happy faces in the Bangladesh Camp as they thumped Pakistan by 6 wickets to win the Bronze Medal πŸ₯‰in the Asian Games 2023.  
Rakibul Hasan comes out to bat. Can he take his team over the line??

Damn!!!! What a game we are having. The balance of the match has swung back towards Pakistan now. Bangladesh need 4 runs off last ball.
4.5 S Muqeem to Y Ali
W WICKET! BOWLED'EM! Muqeem has the last laugh and is it the match for Pakistan? Flighted delivery angling in with the arm for the right-hander. Yasir sits down on one knee and slogs at it but gets the inside edge of the bat on it and drags the ball back on the stumps. 
The match is going all down to the wire! Bangladesh need 4 runs off 2 balls.
4.4 S Muqeem to Y Ali
2 Full and at the off-stump line. Yasir drills it straight back towards the bowler, who gets his hand on it, slowing down the speed of the ball. A fumble in the field and the pair scamper through for a couple of runs. 
Yasir Ali has completely changed the course of the game. Bangladesh need 6 runs off 3 balls.
4.3 S Muqeem to Y Ali
6 SIX MORE! Yasir Ali is turning the tide of the game here! Tossed up and width outside off. Yasir throws everything at it and gets enough amount of wood on it as the ball flies over the sweeper cover for a maximum. 
4.2 S Muqeem to Y Ali
2 Full and straight in the block hole. Yasir drills it towards long-off and scampers for a couple of runs. 
Much needed maximum for Bangladesh! They need 14 runs from 5 balls.
4.1 S Muqeem to Y Ali
6 SIX! Woah, Yasir pummels it over the long-on! Tossed up on the stumps. Yasir bends low and tonks it straight over the long-on for a biggie. 14 needed off 5 balls now. 
Bangladesh need 20 runs off last over.
