Bangladesh Vs New Zealand: Bangladesh is known for big upsets and man, they did it again. We were hardly over the two big upsets, Pakistan and Srilankan win, but Bangladesh’s win was greatest of all, ousting Kiwis. The snapshot review of the match :
- New Zealand was in the match for first 12 overs in either innings. While batting, they were at 69/1 but found themselves reeling at 252/8. 265 was never enough, they knew.
- Williamson(57), the highest run getter of the tournament, was again fluent with the bat. Ross Taylor also supported quite brilliantly (63) . Neil Broom and Martin Guptill also contributed but all of these wasn’t enough.
Come batting for Bangladesh and goes batting for Bangladesh. 33/4 and all the holes were shattered. But not for their greatest player ever: Shakib Al Hasan(114) and upcoming star Mahmudullah(102). They both stitched a partnership of 224 runs, highest from Bangladesh ever to seal, what can be called one of their greatest win ever .
In 2005, Bangladesh defeated Australia and now they have ousted New Zealand. What was game changing for Tigers was their death bowling. The loss has knocked out New Zealand and Bangladesh’s hope of going ahead depend on Australia – England’s match result.
Bangladesh won by 5 wickets.
