Pakistan beat Bangladesh in third ODI

1:07 pm on 7 December 2011

The Pakistani cricketers have beaten Bangladesh by 58 runs in the third one day international in Chittagong to complete a 3-0 series victory.

After restricting Pakistan to a below-par 177 runs, Bangladesh appeared to be coasting towards victory as they reached 61 for one when the floodlights went out at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium.

That unexpected 15-minute break extinguished Bangladesh's hopes of avoiding a series whitewash as they lost their last nine wickets for just 50 runs and were all out for 119.

The sides now play a two-Test series.
