New Zealand in Bangladesh ODI Series - 5th ODI

Bangladesh v New Zealand

Bangladesh won by 3 runs

0.4

Mills to Shahriar Nafees, FOUR, beautifully driven straight back past the bowler by Nafees, it was full on off and swung in a touch but Nafees countered the swing beautifully

Bangladesh 5/0   Shahriar Nafees 4* (1b 1x4)   KD Mills 0.4-0-5-0

2.3

Mills to Shahriar Nafees, FOUR, short on leg, Nafees is off-balance trying to pull, hand comes off the bat handle but he gets enough bat to beat a diving fine leg, slice of fortune there for Nafees

Bangladesh 12/0   Shahriar Nafees 10* (11b 2x4)   KD Mills 1.3-0-10-0

7.2

McKay to Imrul Kayes, FOUR, again short and down leg, this time Kayes gets bat to ball and flips it past fine leg who is up in the circle

Bangladesh 41/2   Imrul Kayes 13* (18b 1x4 1x6)   AJ McKay 3.2-0-15-1

8.1

Mills to Imrul Kayes, FOUR, Kiwis persisting with short lengths and being punished for it, outside off, uses the pace and glides it down to the third man boundary

Bangladesh 48/2   Imrul Kayes 20* (23b 2x4 1x6)   KD Mills 4.1-0-25-1

8.5

Mills to Imrul Kayes, FOUR, more punishment for New Zealand, very short and wide, Kayes throws the kitchen sink at it and flays it through point

Bangladesh 52/2   Imrul Kayes 24* (27b 3x4 1x6)   KD Mills 4.5-0-29-1

17.3

NL McCullum to Shakib Al Hasan, FOUR, down leg, goes for the sweep, gets a touch on the glove which beats the keeper and goes down to fine leg

Bangladesh 85/4   Shakib Al Hasan 12* (8b 1x4)   NL McCullum 1.3-0-10-0

20.2

Vettori to Mushfiqur Rahim, FOUR, nicely comes down the wicket and hits over the mid-on fielder with ease

Bangladesh 95/4   Mushfiqur Rahim 8* (13b 1x4)   DL Vettori 5.2-0-18-2

24.3

Bennett to Mushfiqur Rahim, FOUR, short and wide outside off, Bennett's figures ruined a touch by a fierce slash to the point boundary

Bangladesh 113/4   Mushfiqur Rahim 15* (22b 2x4)   HK Bennett 4.3-0-17-0

25.4

NL McCullum to Mushfiqur Rahim, FOUR, charges down and hits over the top of cover, not much elevation but still enough to clear the heads of the fieldsmen, good use of the feet again from the diminutive keeper

Bangladesh 120/4   Mushfiqur Rahim 20* (27b 3x4)   NL McCullum 2.4-0-16-0

26.3

Elliott to Shakib Al Hasan, FOUR, shorter, flashes an edgy cut very fine past McCullum down to the third man fence

Bangladesh 126/4   Shakib Al Hasan 31* (36b 2x4)   GD Elliott 0.3-0-4-0

29.6

NL McCullum to Mahmudullah, FOUR, goes back and away, has to reach for it but gets enough bat with the cut shot to beat the fielders down to the backward point fence

Bangladesh 139/5   Mahmudullah 4* (4b 1x4)   NL McCullum 5-0-27-0

30.1

Vettori to Mushfiqur Rahim, FOUR, excellent slog sweep to a full ball on middle and off, reaches the fence with ease

Bangladesh 143/5   Mushfiqur Rahim 28* (35b 4x4)   DL Vettori 6.1-0-24-2

37.1

Bennett to Mahmudullah, FOUR, short ball outside off, goes for the booming back-foot drive, gets a thick edge past the dive of a despairing McCullum, also beats the boundary rider

Bangladesh 153/6   Mahmudullah 12* (27b 2x4)   HK Bennett 6.1-1-23-0
