Shoaib Malik smashed a 63 not out as Pakistan survived an early stumble in its run chase to beat United Arab Emirates by 7 wickets in the Asia Cup yesterday.
UAE made 129 for 6 in its 20 overs after opting to bat first before Pakistan reached the winning total with 131 for 3 in 18.4 overs.
Malik was aided by Umar Akmal, who hit an unbeaten 50.
The duo combined for a T20 record fourth-wicket partnership of 114 after Pakistan was reduced to 17 for 3.
The previous record was held by Kevin Pietersen and Eoin Morgan who shared an unbeaten 112 for England against Pakistan in 2010.
Meanwhile, Sri Lanka will take on India in Dhaka at 7.30 Pm local time.
