Bangladesh won by 3 runs

26.4

Elliott to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, squeezes out a short ball to cover

26.5

26.6

Elliott to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, short and wide outside off, Mushfiqur misses out, whacked straight to point

Bangladesh 127/4   GD Elliott 1-0-5-0

28.1

Elliott to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, excellent slower ball which fools Shakib who came down and missed a gigantic heave

28.2

Elliott to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, pushed more sedately into the covers

28.3

Elliott to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, chopped into the ground, ball bobbles over the stumps and dribbles to the keeper

28.4

Elliott to Shakib Al Hasan, 2 runs, goes back to pull but the lack of pace means limited timing, enough for a couple though

28.5

Elliott to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, on leg, pick-up stroke is significantly better timed but straight into the hands of Williamson at deep square leg who dives forward. He is unsure if the ball has carried, the umpires go upstairs. Replays are inconclusive. And against the benefit of the doubt, Shakib is sent on his way!! Massive blow for New Zealand, Shakib has been a real thorn in their plans this series, they will be more than happy to see the back of him. Bangladesh's hopes of a competitive total decrease significantly
