Former Pakistan cricket captain Shahid Afridi has expressed his disappointment at the national side after the green shirts crashed out of Asia Cup on Wednesday.

Taking to Twitter, Afridi congratulated the Bangladeshi side for making it to the finals and criticized Pakistan for lacking attacking mindset in the match. He further suggested the men in green to focus more on practice and make a stronger comeback.

Bangladesh thrashed Pakistan by 37 runs in an all-important game in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday night with Mushfiqur Rahim’s scoring 99 to guide Bangladesh into the Asia Cup final.

The former skipper missed out on a century but still lifted Bangladesh from a precarious 12-3 to 239 all out in 49.5 overs before they kept Pakistan down to 202-9 in 50 overs at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium.

Mashrafe Mortaza’s team will now face defending champions India in the final in Dubai on Friday, with an opportunity to win the continental title for the first time.
