LONDON (Reuters) – Opener Imam-ul-Haq made a run-a-ball century and Babar Azam scored 96 to help Pakistan to 315-9 against Bangladesh in their final group game, even though they are effectively out of the semi-finals race. Pakistan’s abysmal net run rate meant the 1992 champions had no real chances of pipping New Zealand to the last semi-final slot, but Imam and Azam added 157 for the second wicket to lay the foundation for a big total. Mohammad Saifuddin denied Azam a century when he trapped him lbw and Imam’s innings ended in a hit-wicket dismissal when he retreated too much to break his own stump trying to flick Mustafizur Rahman. Mustafizur (5-75) and Saifuddin (3-77) shared eight wickets between them. (Reporting by Amlan Chakraborty in Leeds; editing by Jon Boyle)
