Mushfiqur Rahim struck a valiant 99 but missed his 7th ODI century by one run while Mohammad Mithun made 60 to lift Bangladesh to a decent 239 all out.

Both did enough to rescue Bangladesh with a 144-run fourth wicket stand after they were reduced to 12 for three in 4.2 overs.

For Pakistan, comeback man Junaid Khan shone with the ball, registering impressive figures of four for 19 from his nine overs.

Pakistan's chase got off to a disastrous start as well as they were reduced to 18 for three in 3.3 overs, including Fakhar Zaman, and skipper

Pak opener Imam-ul-Haq (83) turned out to be the lone bright spot as the former world and Asian champions faltered in pursuit of the modest chase to be restricted to 202 for nine.

Imam did not give up the fight and stitched two crucial partnerships with (30) and Asif Ali (31) to keep Pakistan in the hunt.

But the day belonged to Bangladesh as they never gave up hope and fought tooth and nail to stay one step ahead of Pakistan in the match.

Left-arm pacer Mustafizur Rahman (4/43) and off-spinner Mehidy Hasan (2/28) did the early damage for Bangladesh.

But the turning point of the match was Bangladesh skipper Mashrafe Mortaza's blinder of a catch at midwicket to remove Malik off Rubel Hossain's bowling in the 21st over.

Imam and Ali raised some visions of a victory with their 71-run stand but both the batsmen's dismissal in quick succession derailed Pakistan's chase

Bangladesh had pulled off something similar just two years ago - beating Pakistan to make the final of Asia Cup 2016 (played in T20 format), where they eventually lost to India.
