Despite a 71-run opening partnership, Bangladesh could only manage 141 for 5 in the first T20 against Pakistan in Lahore on Friday.

Openers Tamim Iqbal and Mohammad Naim made a decent start after Bangladesh captain Mahmudullah had opted to bat first.

The partnership was only broken when Tamim fell victim to a run out in the last ball of the 11th over.

Tamim made 39 off 34 balls thanks to four fours and a six while top-scorer Naim hit three fours and two sixes to make 43 in 41 balls.

However, their fellow batsmen could not build on the platform set by the oepners and they ended up only making a modest score of 141.

Mahmudullah added an unbeaten 19 off 14 balls in the end while Liton Das made 13.

Shaheen Shah Afridi, Shadab Khan and debutant Haris Rauf claimed one wicket apiece for Pakistan.
