Bangladesh v New Zealand, 3rd ODI, Mirpur October 11, 2010

Batting was a disappointment - Vettori

ESPNcricinfo staff
54

New Zealand captain Daniel Vettori has expressed disappointment after his side's second successive defeat against Bangladesh, giving the hosts an unbeatable 2-0 lead in the five-match ODI series with two games to go. Vettori identified New Zealand's continued struggles against Bangladesh's spinners as the reason for the defeat.

"We are disappointed with the batting," Vettori said after the game. "[Jesse] Ryder and [BJ] Watling set us up, but from then on we were under pressure. The spinners for Bangladesh bowled very well and we have to adjust quickly. We have to post a decent score in the next game to put some pressure on them."

After the early loss of Brendon McCullum, New Zealand recovered through Ryder and Watling who added 55 for the second wicket. However, their good work was undone by the home side's spinners, with left-armer Suhrawadi Shuvo taking 3 for 14 in 10 overs.

Chasing 174 for a win, Bangladesh cantered home with 10 overs to spare, the first time they have managed to string two consecutive wins against top opposition, not counting the 3-0 victory against a depleted West Indies side last year.

"Suhrawadi bowled well and we kept taking wickets," the stand-in Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan said. "Our opening batsmen then batted solidly and gave us a good start, that's what we needed."

    I wish the TIGERS will maintain their present tempo and will make 4-0 win against the Black Caps.

    Good work Bangladesh. Congratulations! But somebody to remind Kayas that it is a 50 over match and not a 500 over match.

    I had been BlackCaps follower for the last 15 years aeven though they have been perform poorly for the last few years. The main worries for me is the the way selection been going for the team and the poor batting. Vettori has putting too much responsibility on his shoulder were as getting no support from his teamates in both batting and bowling. Under Steve Rixon, BlackCaps have become a team where they are able to be competetive with any teams including Australia and South Africa, where they bowling and batting although without superstar like others are often play well against both spin and pace giving oppositon plenty of runs to chase and the bowler and fielder are able to give Vettori enough support to take wickets not like recent years teams are willfully avoiding Vettori and attacks others. In this ODI squad, Stewart is a player of top order and should never be in the middle order at all, Redmond been ignored where he is a useful leg spinner also Franklin too been under use.

    @ sanin, I think you will find that nearly every comment so far has a congrats comment to BD, That first game was a we bit iffy with the DWL system...Lets hope more country's can start beating the big guns two not just the inconsistent Black caps.

  • on October 12, 2010, 16:33 GMT

    I am BD fan and love watching my team to win what ever team we play against. Playing against Big team and win..It's definitly a booster and path of right direction. One thing is clear that BD cannot be taken lightly ANYMORE! You cannot just bring new player to expriment against BD and expect to win!!! THOSE DAYS has long gone. One side note; We shldn't be take too much pride to our self yet...I haven't Won the series...At this point a draw would disappointing for BD. Good luck to both team.

  • sanin on October 12, 2010, 8:03 GMT

    Funny that someone is trying to prove Nz is better team than BD. I feel sorry for you ......You don't have to prove it. Nz is better than BD. But it would be good if you admit that we played way better than you guys to win the last two matches.

    Well done Bangars! I don't think NZ is that bad a side, it is just that 2 games in a row, the Bangars have executed all disciplines at a high standard. NZ is not full strength but any side that has McCullum, Taylor & Vettori is a competitive side. Oram is missed - but the Bangars are missing Tamim & Mortaza! Like some other comments - I look forward to a Nafees/Tamim opening combo, that would remind me of the SL openers (Jayasurya & Kaluwitharana). Kayes & Siddique are progressing well - they need to be 3 & 4. The question is where do Shakib & Mahmuullah bat in the order? I think 5 & 6 - gives space for bowlers + Rahim. They will be difficult to play @ the World Cup - I hope this form will translate to tests.

  • andrew.henshaw on October 12, 2010, 4:31 GMT

    Lol... I never said that Zimbabwe or Ireland were as good as Bangladesh. I said the recent 'competitiveness' other all 3 teams bodes well for an interesting world cup (rather than one utterly dominated by the top 8 countries). However, now that that bag of worms has been opened - whilst i agree that Bangladesh are a better team than Ireland (however Ireland did beat them only 3 months ago), Zimbabwe, after being in the down for the past 5 years, are now looking to be just as strong as Bangladesh.

  • tanish2009 on October 12, 2010, 4:28 GMT

    wow!!! what a win for Bangladesh Cricket Team!!!! this is not the time to celebrate only but to continue with similar tempo and impetus. However, Imrul Kayes is still batting like a tortoise, does not match with ODI style....either he should improve his strike rate or can be dropped coz Tamim is coming...................

  • on October 12, 2010, 2:29 GMT

    Well done Bangladesh excellant cricket,however I think New Zealand have got serious problems in their batting department at times they remind me of my very own West Indies team as soon as one wicket goes down they just crumble. The only man who seams to have some consistency in the batting is Ross Taylor. Jessie Ryder is also a good player but he reminds me so much of Chris Gayle in that some times he may get off to an explosive start and an then all it takes is one silly mistake and he throws his wicket away.The other guys such as Grant Elliot have got to seriouly step up their game. Daniel Vettori cannot always come in and rescue New Zealand from a precarious situation one must remember that he is a left arm spin bowling allrounder. The pace bowling is also a bit of a concern in that sometimes I don`t think it is penetrative enough. Their is no doubt that Kyle Mills and Tim Southee are two very good bowlers it`s just at times I think they lack killer instinct of a Shane Bond.

  • splites on October 12, 2010, 2:06 GMT

    this is the same NZ that barely scraped out a draw in a test against the tigers 2 years ago. Bangladesh do have some good players who if given the chance to perform, will do the nation well. I'd like to hear from the Bangladesh bashers about how they're still poor. Let's remember, they're playing against a side that took 20 years to win their first test match.

  • sun_shine123 on October 12, 2010, 2:05 GMT

    @ youngkeepersdad I give NZ a bit more credit. Brendon McCullum is a fine batsman, so is Rder. I think it is the condition that is messing it up for them. But I also agree that they are not the strongest team around at the moment.

    Great job BD. Even though it is home condition and an inexperienced NZ side, they still had to play and win it. Being unbeatable on home soil is not a mean feat either. Most big teams are. Now for the consistency.

  • Runster1 on October 12, 2010, 1:58 GMT

    lol. How embarrassing for NZ! Feel sad for the kiwis to be beaten by bangla. But still, i reckon who wins the TEST championship is probably the top team in the world. Teams like bangladesh etc wont win the highest form of the game and this will really show who is the best.

  • mike5181 on October 12, 2010, 1:01 GMT

    I think its time to scrap this nz team and put in some different players...im a fan of teams like bangladesh, zimbabwe, ireland progressing but the nz team looks absolutely horrible atm by far the worst team in well....a long time...team needs to get rid of stewart, elliot and nathan mccullem even though he bowled well he adds nothing with the bat...mckay and southee are average atm as wel....we need oram and styris back and we need to include williamson and franklin...we need to go back to the old formula of playing all rounders because players like stewart literally add nothing...we need that wagner guy as wel desperately...hopefully he is available soon...1.McCullem 2.Rhyder 3.Taylor 4.Williamson 5.Styris 6.Franklin 7.Oram 8.Vettori 9.Mills 10.Tufey/Mckay/Southee 11.Wagner...This is the only way i see us getting out of this whole rock bottom thing..i still cant beleive they arent playing williamson...wtf man who are you waiting for South Africa, Australia? Stewart is a fill in.

  • on October 11, 2010, 22:54 GMT

    My nationality is Bangladeshi. We making progress ODI and 20/20 cricket. we have some good brilliant cricket in our country. SAKIB,TAMIM,NAFIS,MASRAFEE and ASRAFUL. Our main players need to opportunity to play county cricket Like ENG,AUS,NZ. Please all supporter in world wide don't call BD is a "small team". Now we are playing good cricket.

  • cricket_for_all on October 11, 2010, 22:38 GMT

    Well done Bangladesh and You are now on the track. I was waiting for this for years (Of course you are taking more time). Don't undermine these wins due to Kiwis team selection. NZ is one of the best teams in the world and Bangladesh won them period!!!. The bottom line is Bangladesh on the right track.

    NZ doesn't need to worry about lot coz they are actually playing with a competitive team (But your players are loosing the rhythm by playing baseball == T20).

  • on October 11, 2010, 21:34 GMT

    NZ is clearly missing the batting of Jacob Oram and Scott Styrus big time. Im not sure why they are not including the all-rounder Williamson. A great player of spin and a decent spin bowler. Elliot's a good player but theres no point in having another medium pacer/batter. Well played BD, No backbone NZ!! Pick it up!

  • ygkd on October 11, 2010, 21:22 GMT

    I may be Australian bu I look forward to the day when Bangladesh is number one in the world, Tamin is number 1 batsman and Shakib is number 1 allrounder. The Kiwis, on the other hand, - I heard a Kiwi's comment on air that it was the worst team they'd put out - in ODIs yes, it probably is. Please get some quality back. NZ have one batsman and one bowler and often they both answer to the same name - Dan. Still, it doesn't take anything away from the Bangys. Well done.

  • on October 11, 2010, 21:03 GMT

    A very well deserved win by Bangladesh..people might say that weather was with Bangladesh in the 1st ODI. But this win was really solid by the Tigerzz.. Very well bowled by the spinners, specially Shuvo's figure was splendid.. But people are over looking the new consistent performer of Bangladesh after Shakib that is Shahriar Nafees. Once again he batted truly well. Imrul is making runs but the strike rate of him is poor while Shahriar Nafees can be the best partner for Tameem while he is back on side..

    Finally, best of luck to the tigers..hope they win the series against the black caps for the first time..

  • on October 11, 2010, 20:05 GMT

    Well NZ have officially hit rock bottom. No disrespect to Bangladesh, you guys smoked us. Heads surely must roll if we lose this series. Man it's tough being a Blackcaps fan sometimes.

  • on October 11, 2010, 19:57 GMT

    Congratulations to Bangladesh they played really well!! Siddons is obviously making progress with the ODI team and they will be a handful for any team in their own conditions at next year's world cup - good luck to them!!

    As a Black Caps supporter, that performance was very disappointing. Similarly to the India OID tri-series recently, our batsmen seem completely unable to adjust to the conditions in the sub-continent!! Ryder looked promising but immaturity got the better of him and he held out in the deep just when he needed to consolidate. Taylor is in great form and even if someone could have just stayed in and blocked at the other end we might have had a decent total!! I can't say I'm a fan of Stewart or Walting in the ODI side. Although on the positive side the bowling of Nathan McCullum is encouraging. Come on Black Caps put together a better batting display in the remaining games!!

  • Tamkin786 on October 11, 2010, 19:03 GMT

    wow.. simply wow.... Bangladesh winning against Newzealand without Tamim, this is really brilliant performance by the Bangladesh team. I wonder what would happen to Newzealand if Tamim was playing.

  • on October 11, 2010, 18:57 GMT

    Well, another well deserved victory for Bangladesh. Congratulations to the team & especially to Suhrawardy Shuvo who bowled an amazing 10-2-14-3, & to Razzak & Shakib as well. This trio completely dismantled the NZ batting line up & if not for Ross Taylor's unbeaten 62 they could have been all out way under 150. Nafees, thnx for that entertaining knock of 73 & a brilliant 50 from Imrul Kayes though it was somewhat disappointing to watch them both depart before the job is done. I am seriously interested to see Tamim & Nafees Open for Bangladesh while Junaid at No. 3 & Kayes being at No. 4 where he can play his typical role to support both Junaid & Shakib, who should forever be at number 5 to take the responsibility to exhilarate the inning into a higher total or mend the inning in case the bad turns out with the help of Mahmudullah and Naeem/Shuvo at No. 6 and 7. Let's hope for Mashrafe & Shafiul & Rubel & Nazmul to be at their best whenever needed alongside Razzak. But it's just me ...

  • NurAhmed on October 11, 2010, 18:54 GMT

    My response is mostly to "Tuman Mustofa Rizwan" .. I don't know man... u are one of those typical fan who thinks by winning two matches makes you number one and start to feel disrespectful when comparing to the team right under your rank. Come onnn... on a bad day... any team can have their a** kicked by any other team... and thats cricket. Under good pressure the BD line up is still fragile... and thats true for any other team as well. The nerve factor still works on BD team. So please do not make such comments like comparing BD team to Zim is disrespectful. Imagine on a fast and pacey pitch... where the spinners are't as effective... how we gonna survive? Batting will not do it all by itself. We are not strong in all departments yet. I am just glad to see BD in such standard where they can make the opponent seriously worried. It's gonna be a delightful WC for us. It's time to show the big boys that "we don't need a perfect day to beat the hake out of ya!"

    Every crises is n opportunity, injury to Tamim brought Shahriar Nafees in the team and now u've three good openers, shuvos performance certainly should wake riad up from his long sleep. With Shakib in leadership series winning should be next target.

  • SABD on October 11, 2010, 16:48 GMT

    Please don't draw Bangladesh into the same league as Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe hardly has any world-class player and are only able to beat 2nd string Ind and Sri Lanka sides!

    Bangladesh moves up to 60 rating points in the ICC ODI rankings table with this win, edging close to the WI with 67. If they manage another win in this series and accomplish a 5-0 clean sweep against Zim, then they may replace the WI as the no. 8 ranked side!

    All the best, BANGLADESH!

  • JS82 on October 11, 2010, 16:41 GMT

    If Nafees can continue scoring runs in this series, I will be very interested to see him open with Tamim in the series against Zim. Kayes is way too slow and he does not have too many shots in his arsenal yet to confidently get Bangladesh starts or play sidekick to Tamim. Nafees and Tamim will be an explosive left hand opening pair.

  • on October 11, 2010, 16:32 GMT

  • on October 11, 2010, 15:10 GMT

    @andrew.henshaw.. the difference between Bangladesh and Ireland is as big as the difference between india(1) and zimbabewe(10). So, It is disrespectful to match a test team with a non test playing nation. Remember that, even zimbabwe managed to beat india in the last sereis. But, it doesn't mean that you can take the name of India and Zimbabwe in the same league. Respect others and earn respect for yourself.

    Congrats to Bangladesh Cricket team.............. The partnership in betn Ross Taylor and Kyle Mills was xtraordinary i have to say....

  • on October 11, 2010, 14:50 GMT

    awesome performance! Stayed up all night to watch this game. One thing though is that New Zealand's batting problems are pretty evident just from the very fact that an "occasional allrounder" like Vettori is batting at No. 6 which is traditionally reserved for a specialist batsman. No matter how much one may praise Vettori's batting the truth is he has played over 250 matches and scored less than 2000 runs at an avg of around 17 with highest of 83. A specialized batsman at no.6 should have far better stats. Vettori can be the 7th batsman but NZ needs to find 6 solid batsman before the world cup.

    I hope Bangladesh continues to exploit this lack of batting prowess in the NZ team and it seems like our spinners have really figured out how to undo this team's batting efforts.... Go Bangladesh!

  • on October 11, 2010, 14:45 GMT

    Good to see Bangladesh string together a couple of wins after many false starts. Hope they would start winning in tests as well. With West Indies down in dumps and Pakistan cricket in turmoil we need more competitive sides for cricket to sustain. Greeting from India

    Please don't undermine the victory of Bangladesh by saying that this is not the main New Zealand team. Even this is not the full strength Bangladesh team. There is no Tamim, no Ashraful (don't want even) no Masharafee as well. I think BCB should right way declare Sakib as the full captain of Bangladesh team and Tamim as his deputy. If Mashrafee returns then he will play as a regular player.
