Opener Ahmed She­hzad pro­duced a su­perb maiden century Sun­day to help Pak­istan score an im­pos­ing 190-5 against Bangladesh in a World Twenty20 Group 2 match.

She­hzad, who had a pre­vi­ous high­est of 98 not out in Twenty20 in­ter­na­tion­als, scored an un­beaten 111 off 62 balls with 10 fours and five sixes. He added 83 runs for the fourth wicket with Shoaib Ma­lik (26) as Pak­istan uti­lized the good con­di­tions af­ter elect­ing to bat.

Bangladesh left-arm spinner Ab­dur Raz­zak jus­ti­fied his se­lec­tion for this game in place of So­hag Gazi as he fin­ished with 2-20. Pak­istan needs to win this match as well as its last game against the West Indies to qual­ify for the semi­fi­nals.
