New Zealand tour of Bangladesh, 2010/11 / Commentary

New Zealand in Bangladesh ODI Series - 5th ODI

Bangladesh v New Zealand

Bangladesh won by 3 runs

4.1

Abdur Razzak to Taylor, 1 wide, down leg, doesn't spin back and beats the flick

4.1

Abdur Razzak to Taylor, 1 run, OUT, well outside leg, clipped into the deep, a misfield convinces them to race back for two and the stumps are broken with Watling struggling to make his ground. Aleem Dar goes upstairs, the issue is whether Razzak (who dropped the ball) has knocked the bails off with his hands first or if he has dropped the ball into the stumps before his hands made contact. And the verdict is... GONE! New Zealand stumbling badly

BJ Watling run out 1 (17m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 12.50

6.3

Abdur Razzak to Taylor, OUT, brilliant from Razzak! Around the wicket, the arm ball going straight on, Taylor plays for the non-existent turn and leaves a huge gap between bat and pad. The ball is only too happy to take advantage and crash into the off stump. New Zealand staggering like a drunkard here
