New Zealand tour of Bangladesh, 2010/11 / Commentary

New Zealand in Bangladesh ODI Series - 4th ODI

Bangladesh v New Zealand

Bangladesh won by 9 runs

Good morning and welcome to ESPNcricinfo's live match coverage of a critical 4th ODI between Bangladesh and New Zealand at Mirpur. I am Avi Singh on commentary today, Sanjay Murari on scoring. Toss and team news as soon as we get it. Check out our preview of a crucial game for both sides.

Pitch report from Danny Morrison: 'New pitch, but looks similar to those used in the first two games.' Jamie Siddons, the Bangladeshi coach, thinks that the pitches have more bounce than they have in the past.

Toss: Daniel Vettori has won the toss and elected to bowl first.

Teams: Bangladesh: 1 Imrul Kayes, 2 Shahriar Nafees, 3 Junaid Siddique, 4 Raqibul Hasan, 5 Shakib al Hasan (c), 6 Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), 7 Mahmudullah, 8 Suhrawadi Shuvo, 9 Abdur Razzak, 10 Shafiul Islam, 11 Rubel Hossain. Bangladesh are unchanged.

New Zealand: 1 Brendon McCullum (wk), 2 BJ Watling, 3 Aaron Redmond, 4 Ross Taylor, 5 Grant Elliott, 6 Daniel Vettori (c), 7 Kane Williamson, 8 Nathan McCullum, 9 Kyle Mills, 10 Daryl Tuffey, 11 Hamish Bennett. New Zealand have brought Tuffey in for McKay, Redmond in for an ill Ryder, Williamson in for Stewart who suffered a head knock in the last game and Bennett on ODI debut in for Southee.

So Bangladesh crumble in the Powerplay and, like the 1st ODI, are bowled out within the 50 overs. This total though has equalled Bangladesh's highest ODI total against New Zealand. Will Shakib's hundred be enough or will New Zealand chase down the total to keep their hopes of avoiding an embarrassing series loss alive? Join us in around half an hour for the New Zealand chase.
