Bangladesh v New Zealand, 3rd ODI, Fatullah November 3, 2013

Bangladesh chase 308, sweep series 3-0

269

Bangladesh 309 for 6 (Shamsur 96, Naeem 63, Nasir 44*) beat New Zealand 307 for 5 (Taylor 107*, Munro 85) by four wickets
Scorecard and ball-by-ball details

Bangladesh banked on a string of partnerships and two fine knocks by Shamsur Rahman and Naeem Islam, as they swept the ODI series 3-0 after chasing 309 in the final over in Fatullah. The four-wicket win matched the 2010 clean sweep at home, which New Zealand lost 4-0. This was also Bangladesh's second successful chase of a target of 300 or above in ODIs.

The home side took full advantage of the new ODI rules that allow only four fielders outside the 30-yard circle during the non Powerplay overs, continually chipping the ball over the infield, and making sure they used the shorter, straight boundaries. New Zealand's 307 for 5 was the highest score at this ground at the innings break, but it wasn't enough in the end. Ross Taylor shored up an inexperienced batting line-up with his eighth hundred, but his efforts went in vain.

Mahmudullah and Nasir added 35 for the sixth wicket before Mahmudullah was given out caught behind in the 48th over, although he wasn't fully convinced and neither were the replays conclusive. A few dot balls afterwards added to the tension among the near-capacity crowd but Nasir released the pressure with a thump over midwicket at the end of the 48th over, bringing down the chase to a run-a-ball.

Nasir kept his nerve, just as he did last year in the deciding fifth ODI against West Indies in which he also guided Bangladesh to a close win. Sohag Gazi completed the win with an upper-cut boundary off the second ball of the last over.

Shamsur Rahman missed out on his maiden century, but his contribution, particularly in the absence of the ill Tamim Iqbal, was valuable. He started off briskly with Ziaur Rahman, as the new opening pair added 50 in the seventh over. Ziaur acted as a pinch-hitter, hammering two sixes and two fours in his 22 before getting out in the eighth over.

But that didn't stop Shamsur from going after the bowlers, hammering Mitchell McClenaghan for two sixes in one over. He and Mominul Haque added another quick 65 runs in 11 overs to maintain the pace of the chase. Mominul, however, fell to a soft dismissal to Anton Devcich, for 32 off 33.

The captain Mushfiqur Rahim however failed to contribute, pulling to Taylor at square-leg for 2. But Naeem made sure there was no collapse as he and Shamsur added 75, at more than five runs an over. Naeem matched Shamsur with his timing, particularly through the off side as reached his fifty off 53 balls. When Shamsur fell in the 35th over, Naeem managed to put together another crucial half-century stand with Nasir Hossain. New Zealand had an opening when Naeem was run out in the 43rd over for 63 off 74 balls, but Nasir and Mahmudullah brought the equation back in Bangladesh's favour.

Earlier it was Taylor's hundred that gave New Zealand much-needed impetus, mainly in the last ten overs. After he had added 130 runs for the fourth wicket with Colin Munro, he made sure he took full advantage of Bangladesh's pace bowling in the slog overs, one of their biggest weaknesses. In the last five overs, Bangladesh conceded 73 runs, after they added just 25 between the 40th and 45th over.

Taylor blasted three sixes and nine fours in his 93-ball unbeaten 107, his second hundred against Bangladesh and his second this year. It was an innings that befitted the only experienced batsman in the line-up, helping the team recover from 101 for 3. Secondly, he let Munro dominate much of their partnership and only cut loose in the end overs. He was severe on anything that was bowled on the stumps, playing his favoured slog-sweep.

Munro forced Mushfiqur to think hard while setting fields. He mixed conventional shots with reverse hits, one of which was a pulled six off Abdur Razzak. Playing his first match on tour, but he showed little signs of difficulty to adjust, as the others in his line-up have shown. He cracked two sixes and seven fours in his 77-ball 85, the sort of innings that one could have been expected from Brendon McCullum, who had left the country to treat his sore back.

The openers Devcich and Tom Latham put on 66 in 13.2 overs before the former fell to a poor shot. Devcich survived a chance in the sixth over when he inside-edged a Sohag Gazi delivery past Mushfiqur. The wicketkeeper made amends when he held on to the edge from Latham, who scored 43.

Bangladesh's bowling was ordinary at times, particularly Sohag Gazi, who was struck for three sixes in a row by Taylor in his last over, and Mashrafe, who conceded 73 off his eight overs.

Despite that, there has been a marked difference in Bangladesh's confidence and body language over the last four weeks. The batsmen have stood up to the challenge of setting up totals and now they have successfully chased a 300-plus total. This win alone should give them more reason to think of themselves as genuine match-winners in one-day cricket.

    Wow. The cricket world is sure interesting at the moment. Bangladesh sweeping NZ (who in turn had beaten England and SA in their own backyards), and Pakistan are all over South Africa. As a NZ fan, I don't like to see my team lose, but these sorts of results are good for the world game. Congratulations Bangladesh - I hope this encourages the ICC, and the cricketing boards from other countries to grant you more matches. On this showing, you certainly deserve them.

  • on November 3, 2013, 17:46 GMT

    If I were to go back into time, say 3-4 years even, and say to the cricketing world that Bangladesh can play like this; No one would believe me. I remember that we used to play with the likes of Alok Kapali, Shovagato Hom, Shariar Nafees, Juhurul Islam, and of coarse the infamous Shahadat Hossain. Each and every one of those players have been replaced by the young and talented cricketers of Bangladesh. Do you think anyone would believe a bangladeshi batsmen getting 181, another getting 200, or a tailender getting a hat-trick and a century. The transition is almost over-night as I look back to the Pakistan tour-Asia cup time period back in 2012. Also, Bangladesh did not feature three players, Shakib, Tamim, and ill even include Mushfiq because face it 2 is not a score to be proud of. Even then we dominated. Imagine this team in full form. I shudder to think what would happen.

  • on November 3, 2013, 12:50 GMT

    The memories of those absolutely disappointing days are still vivid in most of our minds. Those were the days when we used to come back from the stadium or in front of the TV and radio with our heads and shoulders down. And this was a story of everyday. We waited match after match, year after year for a win. There was a time we didn't win anything for 5 straight years. We stopped to dare about winning a match. We even lost to teams like Canada. Our team was bullied by cricket's superpowers. Our cricket was mocked by cricket's superstars. I was angry with them, like all of us. Disappointed with our team. Disgusted with everything. But we suffered all of those in silence and kept filling up the stadium galleries. How far we have come from those days? Many a mile, I would say. How far we have to go from there? We've to go far far away!!! But today we will celebrate in whichever way we want to celebrate. Because we, the Bangladeshis, have earned it.

    I am Bangladeshi fan from Pakistan. I am really proud of their performance and better luck to NZL next time. All credit goes to Bengali batman for winning the series. it will useful for world of cricket having maximum sides in odi and test. World cricket is improving. So ICC should give exposure to new sides e.g. Afghanistan, Ireland and Zimbabwe, too. It's too boring to be playing with just ten sides. At least 30 sides should be in world of cricket.

  • on November 5, 2013, 17:17 GMT

    After the T20 no cricket remains for BD fan. Im very much proud for Bangladesh team. They finish the year with great remark. But a little angry of the ICC's behaviour. They cann't manage more match for Bangladesh team though they are the gaurdian of Cricket world. ICC should deeply think the matter. Bangladesh cricket board should take some steps to arrage some match within December. We are the BD fans crying for more matches which gives us more joy.

    I have said it before and say it again, it is just a matter of time before Bangladesh get going. Having passionate people, crowd, and love for the game, there is only so much time you can keep them away. Plz give them more games, and annual overseas series so the players can develop. This is the right time for BD cricket to get going, and not look back. A strong Bangladeshi team makes a stronger Asia. Your well wisher from Pakistan:)

    Thank you New Zealand for being such great contenders, well played indeed! Cricket still remains as a 'gentleman's game' for 'some' and you guys are among them. ~ on behalf of Bangladesh,

  • on November 4, 2013, 21:57 GMT

    Well done Team Bangladesh! Credit should go to all the backroom coaching staff and the Bangladeshi Head Coach Shane Jurgensen. Their work and contributions should never be underestimated. Our immense thanks and gratitude to New Zealand team for touring Bangladesh, although we still have T20 to be played yet and your attitude and mannerism is second to none. Your under performance is only a temporary blip, because you have some fantastic youngsters coming through. One Coach i do blame from the past is Jamie Siddons not because of his coaching abilities, but for not applying strict discipline and certain players lacking in professional attitude. Things some players had got away with in previous years was unreal, such as outside influences, turning up late at training sessions, missing training sessions, thought they were to good to be told what to do and endless excuses.

  • Dhali_BD_Fan on November 4, 2013, 21:02 GMT

    @ Philly.rocks - Well said! - that is exactly what is needed. BD team, all teams for the matter always need to learn from every game and ensure they give 100%. Win/Loss is a part of the game, the competition, the hard work, the determination is what sets the games apart - and I for one - am a VERY HAPPY BD Fan to see my team grow like this. NZ - along with Sri Lanka, South Africa and West Indies, has always been one of most respected teams in cricket - their sportsmanship and cricket is exceptional. Thank you NZ and NZ fans for helping us and for being there for us. Now I am eagerly waiting to see BB McCollum hitting a blitzkrieg 50/100, when this guy hits, he really hits, hope is back pain gets better soon!

  • on November 4, 2013, 18:18 GMT

    Its a new history and memorable victory against New Zealand hopefully we have to beat NZ in T20 all the best Bangladeshi Tigers.

  • on November 4, 2013, 18:18 GMT

    I sincerely thanks Black Caps..as they are regularly visiting Bangladesh and in return they are inviting for complete tour too ! This is how one can get inspired & confident ! Few other leading countries in cricketing world should follow 'em ! One should not always think commercially.Wishing a good day for New Zealanders ahead...

  • Dhali_BD_Fan on November 4, 2013, 17:31 GMT

    ICC and other associations will need to recognize that BD is now a well formed International cricketing team, we need to play more on both home and foreign soil. Years we BD fans have been patiently waiting and so the reward tastes that much better! The team feeling like they can win and put up a genuine challenge is what I appreciate the most! BUT we need to learn from the many mistakes in this game, Mushfiq needs to learn to stop playing a bowler who has is having an off day and take a risk with someone else (like Dhoni does). Today was an off today for Mortaza who otherwise is our star bowler. He kept doing this with Shahadat Hossain and others which frequently leaked excessive runs in the death overs. + lots of work needed in fielding and Powerplay overs. Bring back Anamul slowly but do not pressure him, Shamsur should be given a permanent spot and we need to be patient - he will improve. We should keep Naeem Islam at no. 4 and keep Mahmadullah as a back-up for Shakib.

  • on November 4, 2013, 15:47 GMT

    Bangladesh has done well. 3-0 win over a team who are ahead of us in ranking is a great achievement. ICC should take these things in consideration and grant more matches for bangladesh. As a bangladeshi I am very happy with my teams performance. New Zealand is a good team (no doubt) and i don't want to underestimate them. I want to thank NZ for their support. They were always with us. They never rejected our proposal. And thank you Dany Morison. Good Luck for NZ team.

    Congratulation Bangladesh cricket team.

  • Philly.rocks on November 4, 2013, 15:05 GMT

    Apart from winning the series by 3-0, I still feel there is nothing to get away from this. We need to start winning outside of Bangladesh, we need to show good progress in Tests and some of the mistakes in final ODI were really frustrating: dropping catch, missing straightforward stumping chance by captain, letting the ball go through two legs, lazy drive at the boundary without watching the ball and eventually allowing a boundary which should have been a couple only, bowling short pitch/full toss deliveries at the death overs, giving width to invite batters to hit, Not bowling Ziaur Rahman at all and kept trying with expensive bowlers. When you want to show real progress and be counted as good contender for success at every level, you cannot make these silly mistakes. We the fans do not want to see these to be repeated. Let the team work on these and come out as real tigers in next series. For now, congrats to the team and everybody involved.

  • Philly.rocks on November 4, 2013, 14:43 GMT

    The OUT of Mahmudullah,the TV replay was inconclusive whether it had touch his gloves. But it surely did deflect of his shoulder. And as per benefit of doubt it goes to batsman. But Mahmudullah was given OUT against benefit of doubt.

  • on November 4, 2013, 14:35 GMT

    Unlike the previous one Bangladesh demonstrated lot improvement in this series especially in batting which was a nightmare show in past. But I was disappointed to see BD players still not in their best fitness skill : loose fielding, poor running between the wicket, playing too many shorts did not impress me at all. Only solution can be playing more & more away series. Can ICC change their FTP for Bangladesh like other nations can do ?

  • on November 4, 2013, 12:20 GMT

    Congratulation Bangladesh! No tamim, no sakib, still we are winning. Good to see everybody is contributing. New Zealand may have lost the series but I still love this team from the core of my heart. They show good sportsmanship and know how to respect other teams. :)

    Chasing a 300+ target in absense of top 2 batsman is totally mind blowing. Hats off to the tigers. They proved their ability to beat any top team of the world. But my question towards ICC is that what else the tiger has to proof to get more & more international matches. Even after organizing 2 successful season of BPL along with the support of world's most amazing fans, our teams are still not eligible to play champion's league.....!!! And finally for the 1st time in the history of any form of sports a host nation is playing for a spot in the world cup which is going to be played in their own country......!!! What the is wrong with ICC....!!??? Is it the way they want cricket to be globalized.

  • Warm_Coffee on November 4, 2013, 8:49 GMT

    Bangladesh are no more minnows whether we like it or not. I just hope Bangladesh for once gets to play more matches otherwise the ranking table would've looked a lot different then it is currently showing. New Zealand immediately go to Sri Lanka then home series with West Indies and India. What has Bangladesh got? oh another long gap that's what they got. Unlike New Zealand, Bangladesh can fill up grounds even for test matches at an instance. Expect New Zealand home series to have hardly any crowd especially for their test matches coming up.

  • gentleme on November 4, 2013, 8:45 GMT

    This was a real test for Bangladesh and they passed it with flying marks. Bangladesh was better in every sections including batting, bowling and fielding. So I don't know about others but in my choice this is the dream team of bangladesh including Sakib and Tamim.

    Bangladesh Cricket team is improving very rapidly. what they lacks is 2/3 quality fast bowlers and sporting pitch(where qulity batsmen gets run,spinners get wickt and pace bowler get bounce and movement) in local fields .

    i wish BD invites PAK and Indi in this december and have tri nation cup.

  • on November 4, 2013, 6:59 GMT

    What surprised me watching this game is , knowing that the fact that there was no Shakib, no Tamim , it will be too difficult to chase a target of over 300 runs , but the boys fought it not only with the passion of the youth but with sensibility . Well done . My message to ICC , you remember Sri Lanka on 1996 World Cup where no one was predicting them as champions that time , mark my words now , with experience in more matches ,$ you will find a new world champions in Bangladesh

  • Sadequl on November 4, 2013, 6:51 GMT

    What ever the critics say end result is : 7 - 0

  • on November 4, 2013, 6:14 GMT

    To the one who controls world cricket, ICC or whoever, now it's time to wake up. It's time to bring impartiality in cricket. Let Bangladesh grow in cricket by letting them play sufficient matches in a year. Bangladesh's growth in world cricket is only good for cricket itself. Let ICC realize the fact and develop cricket like FIFA doing in football. Quoting from Peter Miller's twitter, "And if your first instinct is to criticize New Zealand & not to congratulate Bangladesh, you need to work out how to fill up your empty soul."

  • on November 4, 2013, 6:05 GMT

    Congratulations to the Tigers for White washing the Blackcaps again. It's hard to believe that according to the cricinfo fixture in the next 12 month Bangladesh has no tour or ODI/Test match apart from 3 T20 WC match in March. I don't know what is the Cricket Board officials are doing. To maintain this form and to do well in 2015 WC Bangladesh need more and more game. BCB should act promptly to have some home and away series within next 12 months.

  • IND_BAAL on November 4, 2013, 5:53 GMT

    @ kiwicricketnut- Actually BD fans were very frustrated for not getting the proper appreciation even playing good cricket in recent years by few so called super 8 fans. But The real story is BD fans luv Cricket, They love New Zealand.

    Some of the comments may have come from the frustration. Peace

  • IND_BAAL on November 4, 2013, 5:51 GMT

    To All Bangladesh fans: Let people talk. Team performance will speak for us. We should respect other teams & their fans.

    New Zealand is the true spirit of this gentle man game. As a Bangladeshi i m thankful to all the New Zealand fans for their appreciation. In this series i watched all the matches in stadium and saw both team played with very good spirit. Good to see this. To all the critics: Yes we are not the best Team in the world. But We are just playing good cricket in recent years.

    About past record- Yes when we have started playing cricket in 2000 with nothing own our back, So called super 8 played the games for 100 years ;)

    I think New Zealand team is very good. May be not in this condition but they are a very good team with new comers like Anderson,Devcich, Boult. So keep your eyes on this team for upcoming world cup.

  • bdcricket_crazy on November 4, 2013, 5:30 GMT

    We are very happy that Bangladesh did very well! If the only T20 gives the same result, it will be great! Besides, I think we should think about future. We need to make sure that our players play more longer version cricket. We need to organize more 4 or 5 days matches' domestic tournament. And it should be more in school cricket. School boys just need to play longer version cricket rather than 50 overs matches. We have seen some overseas tours of under19 and A team. But those were of 50 overs tour. This is not enough. We need tour of 4 or 5 days matches. We need to prove ourselves and show the world what we are worthy of. So, we need to prepare ourselves. My earnest request to BCB, pls organize more longer version cricket tournament. Do not wait for the help of ICC. Our player will do far more better.

    Its been integrating stuff from Bangladesh and well done to the KIWIS as its always tough to get used to our conditions. The cricket fans of the world if subcontinent pitches are flat and the bowlers are bowling machines then check the tour of ind in nz in 2007 or the english tests.....everyone takes advantage of their own backyard , so, stop complaining and start enjoying the beauty of cricket

    Great job for Bangladeshi cricketers.

  • IND_BAAL on November 4, 2013, 4:52 GMT

    I think BCB should start moving their feet & work on the relation with other boards for more series. Without ICC FTP that can be arranged. I think End of this month may be a 3 match series against Australia/SA/ENG/WI will make very good.

    Apart from this the main contributor of bangladesh's recent performence BPL should be restructured. Payments issues should be solved 100% & start pplanning very strongly to arrange one BPL session before next T20 world cup. Players like Mominul,Shamshur Rahman, are the result of BPL.

    In fact Musfiq,Riad,Nasir,Naeem,Sakib,Tamim got more confidence after 1st BPL( That showed in Asia cup)

    Age Cricket is well maintain but need more tour for them (U-12 to U-23)

  • QTS_ on November 4, 2013, 4:51 GMT

    @NostroGusto: Sportsmanship by the crowd has been poor in general in the series, but in the final ODI, Taylor's hundred was cheered. One positive step...

  • on November 4, 2013, 4:20 GMT

    Disappointing umpiring against BD....but at the BD win ....congrts tigers.

  • on November 4, 2013, 3:43 GMT

    This shows the advantage of haven t20 leagues.IPL has given some best talented youngesters to india and BPL has given bangladesh new talented faces.,same is the caase with westindies,australia,england etc... Sad for those countries who could not afford this kind of leagues due to financial and political reasons..

  • on November 4, 2013, 3:42 GMT

    @ Bishop, thanks a lot for your wish to Bangladesh Cricket Team and like you I do believe that ICC should give us more opportunities to play not only at home grounds but also in the other test playing countries.

  • googletalk on November 4, 2013, 3:40 GMT

    This NZ team is not a weaker one, BD just played good cricket and with some luck. This is neither going to be the "end of the world" for NZ cricket, nor "whole new era" for BD cricket. Any keen BD cricket follower knows that BD players are capable of playing high level cricket, just require little more consistency, and desired international level umpiring. Now its up to ICC to allocate BD more international matches. It will be sad if this team's progress is being obstructed due to lack of competitive matches.

  • on November 4, 2013, 3:29 GMT

    Good Job Bangladesh team...did well in all formats of the match.

  • ThatsJustCricket on November 4, 2013, 3:26 GMT

    More than anything, the confidence and mindset of the BD players have changed for the better. The over-reliance on a handful of stars are a thing of past now. The results are there for everybody to see. Well done BD.

  • on November 4, 2013, 3:25 GMT

  • CrICkeeet on November 4, 2013, 3:21 GMT

    NZ should drop unneccessary players, dont take any1 only 2 fill the squad. I cant understand What B Mc doing in d TEST squad? Make Brendn only a T20 captain. Rosco is the perfect man 2 lead test nd odi... NZ should try SODHI in odi. Kyle's bowling change nd field possition also shocked me! Keep using those xpensive guys in the middle overs? that helped bd 2 progress their runrate all d time in d match. Nathan 8-0-44-1, Devcich 7-0-36-1, both of them picked 2 wickets in 15 ovrs, 5.67 runrate.. where Mills, Milne, Mitch evry1 is nearly 7.00; also kyle,adam Wicketless? (Mitch got 2, 1 was mahmud, shoulder touch catch). Why nt completing atleast Nathan's 10 in the middle? whats wrong with ish sodhi? He's nt evn in d XI..

  • on November 4, 2013, 3:11 GMT

  • on November 4, 2013, 2:58 GMT

    On behalf of the Bangladeshi supporters, i'd like to thank New Zealand cricket team for visiting us. It's always great to see our home team doing great against a quality team like New Zealand. I do think NZ needs to work on their spinners because the subcontinent is the Spinners Kingdom. I just hope NZ finds Vettori's replacement. Once again TY NZ

  • i_amVIVA on November 4, 2013, 2:33 GMT

    @kiwicricketnu and @cricketlover111: Thanks for your progressive comments, I agree. As a BD fan, I also thank the NZ team for playing with BD in a fine game, where many a big team constantly ignore such invitations I suppose. At the same time, I fully understand the emotional burst of the BD fans, and apologize on behalf of those who misspoke or overexcited with abrasive comments in this site. This is merely a game and the best team ought to win on their day. Win or lose, we the fans should enjoy an exciting game with an open mind. This should be the norm in absence of abusing or insulting another humane being for no reason. Hope we all take note of this mantra, and enjoy the fine game of Cricket wherever that's being played. Finally, a big CONGRATULATIONs to my beloved TIGERS for a fantastic job.

  • on November 4, 2013, 2:24 GMT

    I think Bangladesh is going to be "TEAM BANGLADESH".well done tigers.

  • i_amVIVA on November 4, 2013, 1:50 GMT

    @MR.UNSTOPPABLE & other BD haters: we understand your mentality, but ask to be brave to credit BD at its fine achievement. It was norm for any team to beat BD anywhere at any time. That has changed. It used to be that BD would heavily depend on a handful of star players for occasional success. That has changed. It used to be that BD was very unpredictable in building any meaningful scores. That has changed. It used to be that no measurable partnership would form in either batting first or chasing. That has changed. We can go on and on on many positives BD has developed lately. But the fact is: NZ still a S8 team, were beaten soundly in the last two meetings in BD. This fact alone deserves some credit. Yes, we agree with the fine past of NZ. But it's also history that 'The sun never set in the British Empire'. In this changing world, BD has and is moving in the right direction significantly. And it's time for the ICC to notice this and act appropriately for the development of cricket.

  • cricketlover111 on November 4, 2013, 1:35 GMT

    I think its a great result for Bangladesh and fully deserved, so I went back through the statistics to see how they have gone over the past 3 years. I was amazed to see only 3 ODI series overseas, 2 of these in Zimbabwe which were both lost. Not wanting to take anything away from Bangladesh result in this series but it needs more overseas wins before claiming to be a top team. Isn't the ICC providing the tours?

  • kiwicricketnut on November 4, 2013, 1:30 GMT

    Some silly comments here from some obviously dissapointed kiwi fans, just give bandladesh the credit they deserve, they out played us and are a better team than us in their conditions, they proved the first series victory was no fluke by beating us again in this one, hard to swallow maybe but its fact. Mr unstoppable will become mr unpopular rattling off a whole lot of names of former greats that had nothing to do with the current team as some sort of superiority to bangladesh, made me laugh and there are others here who just can't seem to accept we were done by a better side. There will be a review of the tour when they go home to find out what went wrong and there only finding will be is that we arn't that good and bangladesh were the better side.

  • goabnb94 on November 4, 2013, 1:08 GMT

    Well done to Bangladesh, but don't let it go to your heads. You beat a dismally performing team in your own backyard. You need to prove your worth against a more worthy opponent, especially in their backyard.

  • Antony_Lucas on November 4, 2013, 1:01 GMT

    Bangladesh strategy with the bat really was the difference. Play yourself in and for an over or 2 and your off. No discredit to Taylor but he took 50 balls to play himself in. After 10 overs in the second innings Bangladesh were never really going to lose. Mills the captain kept the pacemen on for far too long and exposed NZs bare spinning cupboard. Sodhi should have been kept on. N McCullum seems to be fruitful only 1 in 5 games if that, he really has done well to play so many games for NZ given his limited abilities.

    After 2 losses NZ were content with 300. the push for 350 should have been there. Slowing down after 10 overs really did undo the good start

    Bangladesh completely dominant. Congratulations to them but i wouldn't get too carried away. They are superior to NZ, but NZ have been really really bad on this tour. The conditions are just so foreign to NZ, and NZ just never really acclimatized. Nz should be dead keen on a 5 or 7 match ODI series at home for some redemption

  • UGOVINDNZ on November 4, 2013, 0:59 GMT

    Well done to the Bangladesh side, the team has come of age and played an excellent brand of cricket not just on the odd ocaasion but throughout the series. The batsmen have the ability to bat long periods, bat deep into the order while playing with great flamboyance and class. The crowds were passionite in numbers and appreciative of the good cricket that they played. New Zealand on the other hand have gone back two steps once again and this time it is due to a lack of respect for the opposition, a lack of hardwork and a lack of pride. The ODI squad for NZ was a B team compared to the test match side. NZ does not have the depth nor the right to field such a hapless side. Our players should be prepared to fight and win for NZ in every match rather than use the tour to develop players. Fans should not have to put up with watching failed reverse pull shots from debutants. NZ are going into Sri Lanka without their top two players and quite frankly they have already thrown the towel in.

  • NostroGustro on November 3, 2013, 23:54 GMT

    Well done Bangladesh - very well played and totally deserving series win.

    But it's been said before and I'll add my $0.02 worth. The sportsmanship of the banglasdesh crowds is the worst i've ever seen. When first Colin, then Ross reached their 50's not a sound was heard. The impression was that not one person was applauding. Scanning the crowd shots confirmed this. Disgraceful!

  • Patchmaster on November 3, 2013, 22:54 GMT

    There needs to be a major change of back room staff at Cricket NZ. There's a long standing lethargy within many of the players. I would rather cull out the McMillans of this world, and let these good youngsters come through. The other fact, is that NZ players are paid the same if they win, or they lose. Bring in a performance related pay scheme and you'd soon see things improve.

  • SarfBD on November 3, 2013, 21:58 GMT

    @KiwiCricktstar, McCullum, Neesham, Southee were in the 1st and 2nd ODI. Vettori, Ryder, Williamson, Southee, McCullum were in the 2010 team. Didn't make much difference. I admire NZ because they deserve it. You should try to do the same too.

  • Bang_La on November 3, 2013, 21:52 GMT

  • SarfBD on November 3, 2013, 21:50 GMT

    @MR.UNSTOPPABLE, if you feet better to live in the past then it's your choice. And yes, those name you mentioned are world class; some of them were best of their time. But tell me, how long did you take to produce those players? Almost a century? We are playing for one and a half decade. We won't take that much time. Believe me.

  • SarfBD on November 3, 2013, 21:44 GMT

    @goabnb94 , I thought both teams played in the same ground, same pitch with same playing conditions. While those new rules are complete jokes, Bangladesh didn't get any extra advantage as they had more spinners than NZ in the squad. Besides you need to check the scoreboard of the 2nd ODI (I'm not considering the 1st one as that was rain curtailed) where BD defended 247. Too bad chasing on a supposed batting paradise. I know your pride has been hurt. But the sooner you accept the reality the better you be.

  • kiwicricketnut on November 3, 2013, 21:11 GMT

    ,Better effort but still not enough, this time the batters did the job but the bowlers wern't up to it, cant get a complete performance out of these black caps at the moment, well done bangladesh nobody can deny how strong you are at home, when ever we tour there again no doubt we will be the under dogs and you will be the favourites. All your team needs to do now is win consistantly abroad, not easy but the makings are there. One t20 is all that is left to take away from this tour but who cares about that? Good luck bangladesh for future tours hopefully you carry on improving and knock a few more teams over.

  • on November 3, 2013, 20:41 GMT

    Mccullum, southee, neesham..was there Mr. KiwiCricktstar ! We also played without sakib , without tamim last match ! Whatever may it will be tough in NZ condition but you have to agree a true champion team never defended on particular player ...Bangladesh prove it in this series ! without tamim , sakib , without captain contribution we chase 300+ ! Forget about others two match...and previous 4-0. I like NZ team for their cricketing attitude ... one of my favorite team after beloved Bangladesh.

  • on November 3, 2013, 20:41 GMT

  • on November 3, 2013, 20:34 GMT

    Whenever victory like this met us ... we remind our team struggling to get 150 , then to score 200 , then at least to play for 50 Overs !! Big stars of Big team insult this team several time... Once upon a time Bangladesh team keep searching for talent .. i can remind very few player playing 2 years continuously , But now its a different scenario ..sakib , tamim , mushfik , mashraffe, razzak are playing together 5 years , expect razzak and mash every one is still too young ...and what about mr. consistent Nasir , riad, gazi , young mominul. Now This Team have alternative player for each and every position... remembering 13 years of struggle.. 13 years of insult... hopefully the team will be professional enough to give it back ... all we wants enough match !

  • on November 3, 2013, 20:31 GMT

    Firstly, thanks to ALLAH for giving us another Banglawash. This is extra-ordinary cricket from the tigers. 2 things greatly impressed me from this series. 1. Mushfiqur Rahim's captaincy. Such a talent, he can handle the pressure situation smartly, that's great and also a very good batsman. 2. Playing as a team, everyone is contributing for the team. We are not only depend on Shakib-Tamim, that is very good for us. . But the kiwis fought very hard. Corey Anderson is a fine player for them and also Jimmy Neesham. Feeling sorry for them. Good luck for the Srilanka tour. Keep roaring tigers… cheers.

  • neelvalley on November 3, 2013, 20:30 GMT

    Mr. Unstoppable, Buddy, I'm sorry to say, "Shame on you." It's not the BD fans but you who needs to get over. Being a great team with such achievements as you mentioned, NZ has gone through 7 straight losses. And, you're still licking the same old bone! You ashamed the great players by naming them in your such poor argument. As if, you're thinking of NZ's All time best Vs BD. Come on, they can't play for you forever! So, it's better that, you get over. Or, you can continue what you're best at: linking and following bottom of your back. We won't mind.

  • PompandCircumstance on November 3, 2013, 20:19 GMT

    Very heartening to see Bangladesh emerging as a legitimate contender. People who criticize Bangladesh have to realize that it has only been 13 years since they received Full Member status, and have had far less opportunities , in their early years as compared to a Sri Lanka or New Zealand did compared to the more established Full Members at that time.

  • fr600 on November 3, 2013, 20:10 GMT

  • Masking_Tape on November 3, 2013, 19:22 GMT

  • Masking_Tape on November 3, 2013, 19:19 GMT

    Proud of the way Bdesh show character throughout the team. But as Mash said, we still have many things to work on, make less and less mistake. One big thing to take away from this is that Bdesh is learning to close out games. Last couple of years Bdesh came close and lost several times. That's another step forward.

    I'm just a little worried that this "Banglawash" is happening right before another ICC World Cup. We all know what happened last time. And I hope it's avoided.

  • SHopNiL on November 3, 2013, 19:14 GMT

    As a Bangladeshi, I don't just salute the BD team but I salute New Zealand team for playing with extra-ordinary spirits. They've been the most well mannered cricket team in the world and showed us respect as an opposition. Sometimes you'll win, sometimes you may lose and those are all part of the game but they never ceased trying their best. Bangladesh team is coming to the age while New Zealand is in a transitioning phase. You guys have a full packed talented site, looked even better than the current Australian side. You guys lost those matches but won our hearts. Very best of luck in the T20 and the Sri Lanka tour ahead. Warm regards on behalf of the Bangldeshi supporters.

  • on November 3, 2013, 18:59 GMT

    I believe Bangladesh have the strength to win series VS England ,Australia, South Africa,WI in our soil. We need to retain our success... when Tamim and Sakib will come back in the best XI we will b more more balanced.

    Some of my fellow BD fans are getting carried away by saying we will white wash other teams. Come on brothers, don't make emotional comments. Be realistic. We still need to have a consistent top order. A couple of good starts at home do not make us world beater. Also, we need consistent good fast bowling a weakness that will hold us back in away series'. However, we have made tremendous progress and we also have ways to go. Let's enjoy this success without getting carried away. Go Tigers!

  • jantrikunmad on November 3, 2013, 18:12 GMT

    well....the big guns of BD time didnt contribute today's match.the most heavy weighted Sakib and Tamim didnt play. Mushfique wasnt at his best, scoring just 2 runs and misses a stumping chance as well. Mashrafe leaaked too many runs helping NZ to get past 300. Rubel and Razzaq both leaked runs at 6.33 of eco rate where Gazi at 6.70. and yet BD wins!! This shows BD is a team now.A real team of Tigers.

    speaking for NZ, just feel sorry for them.tough matches with tough conditions.BD is just too good for them infront of home fans.

  • Ain_EL_Sabet on November 3, 2013, 18:00 GMT

    First of all, on behalf of all Bangladeshi around the world, I thank and congratulate the coach who has done the best job in BD coaching history so far. Secondly, when shakib returns Naeem should still be in the team becuz he is looking very promising and I am sure he will improve more and more if given chance. Shamsur is the natural partner for the opener , not anamul whose natural position is middle order. Shamsur and naeem really looking promising and hope they be permanent in the team. Masrafe is getting old and we should look for future and hence work on new pacers like robiul , alamin rather than still holding on the old bird.

  • asiacricket1234 on November 3, 2013, 17:55 GMT

Thank You Shane for your service and I hope you will stay with us for a long time :)

Pakistan South Africa Australia r many team they have every month series.why we don't have like that.i don't think is good decision from ICC.we respect ICC.hope from now ICC will think that.good luck for tiger team t20....show them to every body we r ready for next World Cup champion ...

  • on November 3, 2013, 17:47 GMT

    Bangladesh needs only few things to be the best in every format.. 2 pace bowlers (1 with extreme pace like B lee or S Akhter and another with swing and run checking ability like G. Mcgra), 1 permanent attacking opener to pair with Tamim, fast and bouncy pitch and same amount of matches like India has..

  • Football_Hater on November 3, 2013, 17:44 GMT

    Just found out bangladesh has the 2nd highest win/loss ratio in ODI s in the past year. The good thing is only 1 of the 8 wins came against Zim, others are against the other test playing nations. http://stats.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/stats/index.html?class=2;orderby=win_loss_ratio;spanmin2=03+Nov+2012;spanval2=span;template=results;type=team Statsguru is a cool thing i guess.

  • on November 3, 2013, 17:43 GMT

    Congratulations Team Bangladesh. This was a fantastic series. Everyone contributed. Bangladesh needs more Tests, ODIs to show their strength particularly in overseas. But still now, India did not invited Bangladesh at their home. I think it is not good decision for cricket. ICC should give the opportunity to Bangladesh to play more Tests, ODIs. Really, Bangladesh deserve it.

  • the_predator on November 3, 2013, 17:34 GMT

    congradulation BD (from an INDIAN). I think BCB should focus on bulding the first class cricket infrastructure in the country. Till that is done send your players to other country to play in their domestic cricket. Dont worry to much of FLAT wcket or bouncy track. The infrasture is themost important part. remember Tendulkar/dravid/gavaskar/laxman never played on GRASSY tracKs while they were growing up. Brian Lara (such an wonderful palyer against SPIN) did not get practice on spinning tracks against best of spinners. if you can do that you will automatically produce gems. Also remain grounded. Many people seems to suggest that BD at this moment in bangladesh can do a similar whitewash against IND/PAK. GUYS IND is no 1 ranked team. there are some reasons for it. No one gave them that rank on a plate. Pakistan has wonderful cricketing talent. Respect your opposition. anyway I hope you improve a lot more in future, since being a cricket FAN i want to see good cricket.

  • on November 3, 2013, 17:24 GMT

    Bangladesh played some fantastic cricket , however , they are still an ordinary side , just like NZ. If India plays Bangladesh 100 times , they'll probably beat them 95 times or more. There is a huge scope of improvement for this side , and few fans saying Bangladesh can reach semi final in 2015 world cup is terribly insane. Still , it's an ever improving side.

  • M_Rakibul_Islam on November 3, 2013, 17:20 GMT

    Bangladesh is no more minnow in OD format. It's time to show their maturity in Test format against all the opponents. Their next aim should b to draw the test series vs SL in next Jan-February & to win the title of upcoming Asia Cup to b held in BD.

  • on November 3, 2013, 17:16 GMT

    from 2000 to 2010, when BD needed to play more first class cricket, improve their infrastructure, organize more cricket, send more A teams to different tests playing countries ICC gave them more INC cricket agaisnt all top countries. The result was very bad as BD did poorly. However, now BD has two first class tournament, they have top alrounder, Mr. cricket and some other fine batsman who are scoring from century to double century. BCB is richer then some other test playing nations. Now ICC needs to give BD more cricket but they are giving them less cricket like they r giving to associate countries. what a irony by ICC!!!!

  • The-love on November 3, 2013, 17:04 GMT

  • Zillurcc on November 3, 2013, 16:52 GMT

    I think BD has improved a lot; but still they need to be tasted out side home land. But where is the scope??!! I think ICC should reconsider the schedule specially in abroad. BCB should raise the matter immediately.

    Mominul is a fantastic finding for BD. I was surprised to see Musfique in his 1st test against England. After a long time I see Mominul probably has the potential to become one of the greatest. He is also very cool & probably can manage to continue. Best of luck Tigers & carry on.

  • frm_tigers_den on November 3, 2013, 16:51 GMT

    superb series win....congrats to the tigers. :D

    to all of our fans: lets jst keep our feet on the ground. lets celebrate the series win bt lets not deny the facts. we are doing well in our home conditions but have to improve a lot for away games. our batting lineup has become very strong bt we still hav to improve a lot as a bowling unit (specially the pace attack). bt i think we'r on our way to improve in these areas. we'r getting better and better, bt we still haven't become the best/strongest team in the world. we shouldn't be stubborn like many fans i've seen frm other subcontinent countries.

    Well played Bangladesh, a good series victory. The NZ side, whilst it has talent in its line-up, it's not firing. NZ cricket has been in the doldrums for some time. There have been glimpses of its potential, but these have been few and far between. It is a side that appears to languish at the lower depths. Bangladesh however appears much more hunger and its successes have been well earned. It is time for NZ Cricket to replace its current coach with the Stephen Fleming. He has a great cricket mind, he's an astute tactical thinker, and his relatively recent retirement from cricket makes him a real prospect for the future. Hard decisions need to be made.

  • on November 3, 2013, 16:39 GMT

    few years before our captain head was down , we fell shame for whitewash , all the prize gone to opposite hand , we just saw and hurt . To day Millls head is down :) and all prize goes to BD tigers ........ its the Start , we will make every one head down as mills ........... the revenge time has started . Be ready for that moment .every captain head will be down ......................

  • SarfBD on November 3, 2013, 16:29 GMT

    After years of humiliating defeats and bashing, at last we've reached a new age. Really proud of tigers and the way the chased down 307. We've survived rain, defended an average score and finally chased down a handsome total. Couldn't be more complete. The most pleasing thing was how everybody contributed. Tamim, Mushfiq, Shamsur, Gazi, Naeem, Nasir, Mahmudullah, Razzak, Mashrafe, Rubel, Mominul...Wow! Everyone delivered when needed. That's called a team. But we've a long way to go. We need to prepare fast and bouncy wickets so that we can prepare for different condition. Honestly I believe, this series could be completely different if the condition was different. For New Zealand it was a forgettable tour. But they've unearth some good talents in Anderson, Nishaam and others, just like they found Kane Williamson in 2010. As an admirer of New Zealand, my best wishes to them. P.S. I hate the term banglawash. We shouldn't use such derogatory terms. We should show humility.

  • on November 3, 2013, 16:27 GMT

    I think we got some real good batsmen and finishers who can do good even in foreign soil. these sets of players are different. but our lousy fielding, catch miss. not so good captaincy gave away 40 more runs to my understanding........

    NZ's Munro's reverse and Taylor's batting was special.

    Somehow I was confident Bangladesh would chase this total down. Believe it or not, probably this team could and can change even 350-360 in.

    We beat WI/ENG/Sri in their home soil......... way to go.............looking forward to meeting Australia in Perth in the World Cup match...

    We will face your dangerous pace attack with our combination attack that we do have........ we need to improve our depth bowling though.......

  • azaduddin on November 3, 2013, 16:19 GMT

    More cricket for BD plz. ~20 odis, 6-8 t20s and 6-10 test matches per year plz. also BCB has to step up and invite teams like australia and make a spin track to do well in test against them b/c australians are weak in spins especially off spin.

  • azaduddin on November 3, 2013, 16:14 GMT

    from 2000 to 2010, when BD needed to play more first class cricket, improve their infrastructure, organize more cricket, send more A teams to different tests playing countries ICC gave them more INC cricket agaisnt all top countries. The result was very bad as BD did poorly. However, now BD has two first class tournament, they have top alrounder, Mr. cricket and some other fine batsman who are scoring from century to double century. BCB is richer then some other test playing nations. Now ICC needs to give BD more cricket but they are giving them less cricket like they r giving to associate countries. what a irony by ICC!!!!

  • raul_abid on November 3, 2013, 16:14 GMT

    congrats BD foranother Banglawash. Good luck to NZ with their next mission. both team played some entertaining cricket but just BD came out as superior. now we (BD) can target next world cup & at least try to reach semi.

  • on November 3, 2013, 16:07 GMT

    It takes quality players to chase a 300 plus target in the shorter format. The Tigers have done that with dogged determination even though two of their bigger stars were not playing. This team has proved that it is worthy enough to rank higher. Wish the other teams would play us more often so that our boys would get better and better. Maybe we should risk a tour of Pakistan and then they can come visit us at home. Pakistan is a high quality team and it would do us a world of good playing them.

  • tauhid_aks on November 3, 2013, 15:52 GMT

    Feels so good to be a Bangladeshi fan right now. When I was new to Cricinfo, I had to write comments about umpiring errors, about Bangladesh's rare victories, about pitch excuses when trying to defend my team. Now I write about how Bangladesh should have bowled better, and how could they have won with a bigger margin had they held on to their chances.

  • on November 3, 2013, 15:48 GMT

    great cricket played by bangladesh

  • Energetic. on November 3, 2013, 15:30 GMT

    Bangladesh now has a dangerous 16 man ODI squad it looks for next 2 years i.e.:- Tamim, Shamsur, Shakib, Mominul, Nasir, Rahim, Mahmudullah, Gazi, Razzak, Mashrafe and Rubel...reserves...Naeem, Anamul, Ziaur, Shafiul, Al-Amin and Nazmul wow!!!

  • Energetic. on November 3, 2013, 15:27 GMT

    Bangladesh may not be a world class team but now a competitive one and that's what we have been saying for the last few years. Whether we like it or not they are no more minnows and its a shame right now they are not getting enough games otherwise the team would've easily climbed up the rankings by 2-3 places. Despite beating New Zealand 3-0 they are still ranked ahead of us and they next go to Sri Lanka in a weeks time. What has Bangladesh got? also Bangladesh should be playing 5 match ODI series at home now. 3 is too easy and more one-day series against the likes of South Africa, England and Australia if possible.

  • on November 3, 2013, 15:23 GMT

    This is just the beginning . More and more BANGLAWASHES are coming soon. I think ICC is taking notice of Tigers' winning momentum. Don't we deserve more matches to play and increase our ranking position?? I think New Zealand are already behind us after the Banglawash. We are getting stronger day by day. So beware of us.

  • mcsdl on November 3, 2013, 15:23 GMT

    2 very weak teams - none of them good enough to challenge an odi or T20 trophy - neither can win a test series against a top 6 ranked team...!

    Awesome Played #Bangladesh ...

  • keralatiger on November 3, 2013, 15:00 GMT

  • cric_roch on November 3, 2013, 15:00 GMT

    BD has atleast 5 world class batsmen...They can take on any team ..great improvement....Mominul has been a revelation....But bowling is still a bit like india.....all the best from Indian fan

  • MIKbd on November 3, 2013, 15:00 GMT

    As a die-hard BD fan it's difficult for me to comment impartially on a BD match. But I think, it won't be an unfair comment if I say- NZ are a very balanced and talented team, have performed to their potential (except the bad patch of McCullum) but in the end have fallen short of the BD performance.The trick was- BD pulled themselves out of trouble every time they were pressed and succeeded in continuing the pressure on NZ, whenever they created one. You should not take the due credit away from BD in disguise of undermining NZ. Pls. accept the fact that BD have consolidated themselves by now.

  • Brajper on November 3, 2013, 14:59 GMT

    Wishes for the Bangladesh on the Outstanding Win against Black caps amused to see such a talented from the Bengal Tigers ....

  • on November 3, 2013, 14:57 GMT

    best of luck bangladesh from india.

  • bdcricket_crazy on November 3, 2013, 14:55 GMT

    It was fantastic to watch 11 tigers in the field! I was so tired today. But I could not able to stop myself from watching the match! It is true that we need to improve a lot. But we have got a start here. Today's one was a perfect one. I really wanted to see what they do when they chase a big total. And they have made it. Congratulation, tigers‼!

  • bdsmaruf on November 3, 2013, 14:54 GMT

    I am not happy with the captaincy of mushi this match. he didn't utilize zia even for 1 over. zia is bowling allrounder (now a days we want to make him pinch heater, its ok but its fullish not to take bowling service from zia. he deserved to bowl, as a proof- zim tour). on the other hand when mushi saw nasir was bowling very very wel, why he stopped him al least while his main bowlers were giving so many runs. he could even use naeem. macculam sometime used 8 bowlers. mushi have to think more as a captain. so I think mushi is responsible for such a nz's big score 307. anyway congratulation bd team. go tiger go ............ to win the world.

  • on November 3, 2013, 14:54 GMT

    Bangladesh has proved that they deserve more oneday and test matches. I request and urge ICC to evaluate the performance and development of Bangladesh Cricket in last 2 years.

  • i_golam on November 3, 2013, 14:53 GMT

    What a great performance by BD ! It was almost expected, but still ... what these guys have done is unforgettable! They showed the results of experience and self-confidence & Now I think the time is mature for Bangladesh cricket to face the ICC with their high requirements on equivalent match distributions and get fair treatment of ICC !!! Bravo Tiger'S ❤❤❤

  • on November 3, 2013, 14:51 GMT

    newzealand BANGLAWASHed!!! who's next. bring it on. tigers r roaring.

  • on November 3, 2013, 14:50 GMT

    We need a lot to play. But we get a little chance to play. ICC should think it positely. Our neighbor country's may take some step. We have a little chance to play with India. In Asia Bangladesh may take 2nd place after India in rank of Popularity. So This ICC's duty how arrange more cricket for Bangladesh.

  • Jadejafan on November 3, 2013, 14:47 GMT

    Well done Bangladesh. Very surprised that the team chased such a score despite big BD players missing. Anderson, Mills, Milne and McClenaghan are very tall fast bowlers. I know for sure that Bangladesh will find bowling attacks of our Indian team way too easy if they can take on pacers from New Zealand and West Indies. Best of luck for future!

  • on November 3, 2013, 14:47 GMT

    No guys..!!..the number is not ..7... It's Bangladesh's 8th ODI win against New Zealand ...Why do we always seem to forget BD's first win against the kiwis on Oct 9, 2008..!!!? http://www.espncricinfo.com/bdeshvnz/engine/match/361755.html

  • IND_BAAL on November 3, 2013, 14:43 GMT

    Few Bangladeshi fans were so hopeless in the early morning.... for them KEEP clam & wait till the finish of the game...so that you don't have to eat your own word...so BANGLAWASH....3-0...any critics about pitch, umpiring, New Zealand A team, Injured players and bla bla bla....

    I hope so called super 8 fans have started crying now...Because bangladesh is playing good.

    PS: We should keep our work going and respect good cricket.

  • on November 3, 2013, 14:37 GMT

    I'm comment here in Cricinfo after drawn the test that NZ will get no chance a win in ODI series or T20. Now they have the last chance to get a win the only T20. I think Bangladesh win the T20 very easily. No chance for NZ also. Some superb hitter is ready for T20. So will rock again in T20 also.

  • on November 3, 2013, 14:36 GMT

    What a pleasant feeling on the series win as well as imposing white wash to the KIWIS consecutively in the home ground.The Tigers have widened their chest to face any top liners in the cricket contest. Congratulation dear brave sons of my country.

  • on November 3, 2013, 14:35 GMT

    there is no doubt, banglades is improving is day by day. they are now very good at home condition. need to show the world on away matches how good u r. I think to become top team need to be produced a few world class players who will take the match by himself. bd needs desperately one or two world class bowler. bd has lacking a real turner & a real fast bowler. I remember in srilanka vass,murali,arvindo did fo themr earlier.

  • sleepy1660 on November 3, 2013, 14:32 GMT

    This is high time Mohammad Isam should write an article on "The coming of age of the Tigers". We, the die-hard fans of Bangladesh cricket team, patiently following the journey for the last 15 years (I'll mark it from our ICC Cup win), certainly deserve this.

    As cricket lovers,fans from other countries like me would better if we give credit to Bangladesh instead terming current newzealand as a weakest team. That would amount to insulting bangladesh. Bangladesh have improved a lot and thats the reality!

You missed the highest run scorer of the Series.. Naeem Islam..163 runs with an average of 54.33..

  • pt_pt on November 3, 2013, 14:07 GMT

    Very disappointing for NZ, now they have one last game on this tour to savage a little bit of pride and win the only T20 in 3 days time. They have been under pressure the whole series and just could not handle it.

  • on November 3, 2013, 13:57 GMT

    new giant of world cricket

  • fr600 on November 3, 2013, 13:55 GMT

    It looks like BD now has more than 2-3 match winners and the chemistry between all players are great and it's always a team effort. Congratulations.

  • on November 3, 2013, 13:54 GMT

    Congratz Bangladesh Cricket Team for their glorious win against Newzealand. Some anti Bangladesh viewers may disagree that Bangladesh has improved a lot in the meantime, they even would like to say that this present Newzealand team is much weak without Ryder........ etc. but thats a lame excuse. In that case Bangladesh may also say that they have no Sakib..... There is another thing the good team will perform in whatever place they play so just no bad excuse like Flat Wicket, typical low-paced wicket etc etc. Those who are Cricket lovers must maintain neutrality about their opinion about Cricket. The opinion should not be partial even it goes against your own team. Thats the sportsman ship. But alas!! most of us has not that spirit!!

    It is really nice to see another whitewash against NZ. I think now BD can win against any team. But we can't see any match with South Africa, Australia, India. ICC should think about this. We want to see Bangladesh will play with all these team. NZ playing really good today. But Bangladesh played better than them. "WELLDONE TIGERS"

  • on November 3, 2013, 13:16 GMT

    Big thanks for BD coach Shane Jurgensen. and also lots of thanks to Stuart law for suggesting his name for the first time while he was leaving BD. These guys are amazing not only for their cricket brain but also great motivator. It was NZ luck that they did not loose a test match. If BD management would prepare right pitch for our spinners we might create a chance in one of the test matches. This is the challenge for BD team to win a precious test match against top 8 in home condition and utilize the condition best way. BCB can hire an expert or adviser like stuart law for suggestions and strategy. i still do not understand why Australia is not taking coaches from their yard like Tom Mody and Stuart Law. These golden age players were not only the best but they also had master brains. i was surprised when i see Australia was hiring a coach from South Africa!

    Our players were complacent at the start of the game. They fielded poorly, they played without Tamim & Shakib, two best player in the team! The solitary poor umpiring decision went against us (Mahmudullah), but we still managed to beat the kiwis easily!!! That's just great!!!!

  • on November 3, 2013, 13:13 GMT

But Where was Bangladesh?? Are You Kidding?? How long New Zealand Playing Cricket and How Long Bangladesh ?

  • bretandme on November 3, 2013, 13:05 GMT

    Congrats Bangladesh!!! Now time to improvise on Tests and focus on playing major Test nations like Aus, Eng, SA, Ind. I hardly can see any confrontation between Bangladesh and these teams. New Zealand became a very good team back in late 90s till 2007 because they always played sides like Aus, SA and SL frequently. They never focused more on playing with then weaker teams like WI, ZIM, BD. ICC should look into this and set more cricket for BD with the teams at the top of tables. For NZC- You have some serious tasks ahead. Dont take this tour again as a good tour for practice. Admit it this is your worst defeat Since ZIM defeated NZ in 00-01 2-1. Your players get enough chance to play on sub continent most of the current ones were playing in SL A tour and even B Mac was in India to play CLT20. KW is the only positive in your team. Try making Ross Taylor in charge again, Get rid of Hesson. Taylor gave two major Test victories against AUS and SL whereas B Mac is yet to open his account!!!

  • on November 3, 2013, 12:59 GMT

    This Bangladesh team is very good. By the time of the next World Cup, it will gel into a formidable combination of experience and youth, mostly youth with experience. i will not be surprised if it lifts the cup just like Sri Lanka did in 1996. it appears NZ could not get over the traumatic experience of their last visit to Bangladesh. They deserved to win at least one match.

  • Captainman on November 3, 2013, 12:32 GMT

    If Bangladesh cannot get more Test Cricket fine but we deserve to play lots of limited overs Cricket. Bangladesh in 2012 only 9 ODIs and 2013 again 9 ODIs despite beating India, New Zealand, West Indies, Sri Lanka etc nearly a dozen times in that period. Even against associates like Ireland will be fine. More Cricket please for Bangladesh! Bangladesh squad is really strong now and can only imagine what will happen when you include the likes of Shakib and Tamim together.

  • on November 3, 2013, 12:29 GMT

    NZ beat England in England and SA in SA in 2013 before coming to Bangladesh. They were also very cautious becasue of the 4-0 drubbing they suffered against BD in 2010. But they were outplayed in all three matches of this series Today also it was a composed chase of a 300+ target by the BD batsmen. They played really as a team and absolutely no dependence on any single player. They had so many good performances in this series, almost every member of the team contributed. Well done tigers, 7-0 is now a reality.

At home we beaten mighty WI and NZ and in Srilanka we leveled ODI series 1-1 but did bad in Zim by loosing to them 1-2. Its a challenge for us to do well in 1st bowling pitch..

    wow............bangladesh.

  • on November 3, 2013, 12:11 GMT

    Many congratulations to Bangladesh team. They have added another feather to our success history.

  • xtrafalgarx on November 3, 2013, 12:10 GMT

    300 is a par score now, easily chaseable. India vs Aus has drawn the new path for ODI's.

  • jubairhasan on November 3, 2013, 12:10 GMT

    I think the mission of the tigers has successfully completed with the clean sweep (3-0). with the victory, the BD's young cricketers prove that they cannot rely on some big guns like Shakib, Tamim and Mushfiq as the latest win come against the Black Caps without Shakib and Tamim.

    Here is a warning for the visiting team: Don't show the courage of taking BD lightly at the tiger's territory. otherwise, you will feel the pain of claws of the wild tigers. Be Aware of them.

  • on November 3, 2013, 12:09 GMT

    please change whitewash to "Bnglawash"

  • Fogu on November 3, 2013, 12:07 GMT

    Congrats to NZ for putting up a good total. Congrats Taylor. You are a class player. The difference in the game was composure. BD batsmen were composed for the most part. NZ bowlers gave away 16 no and wide balls. This was well fought match. Very proud of our Bangla Tigers! Cogratulations on the victory. True team effort. Let's continue to improve on this. Go Tigers!!!

  • on November 3, 2013, 12:06 GMT

    hey cricket world, admit, new power is coming on . BANGLADESH.

  • i_golam on November 3, 2013, 12:05 GMT

    It was a great chase & by doing that BD showed to the hole cricket world what they are capable of ? It seems like no team can beat Bangladesh right now ! BD is full of confidence ... & thats what they needed !! Congratulations BD !!!

  • on November 3, 2013, 12:04 GMT

    bangla wash.........yes it is done.

  • on November 3, 2013, 12:03 GMT

    Banglawash!! and what next?? Now Bangladesh need to face more strong team like Australia, South Africa and England....Bangladesh is better team now. they are not one man show team....collectively they played well and its proved now...India, Pakistan and Srilanka already crushed by Bangladesh. Bangladesh is coming...cause Tigers are roaring .......

  • on November 3, 2013, 12:02 GMT

    why there was no trophy given :/

  • Bangladesh_Forever on November 3, 2013, 11:59 GMT

    Congrats to the Tigers for the whitewash! Well deserved result for Bangladesh as the batsmen have pulled the team up this time. Few controversies about Mushi's decision to use the bowlers but all's well that ends well. Shamsur have shown to possess the temperament of the new Team Bangladesh. Tough luck for the Kiwis but Anderson, Latham, Devcich, Munro and McClenaghan promise a lot for their coming days.

  • on November 3, 2013, 11:58 GMT

    Bangladesh truly got a new " KEY PLAYER----- 'Sohag Gaji' "

  • TheRisingTeam on November 3, 2013, 11:56 GMT

    Wow!!! that was just icing on the cake for Bangladesh! simply fantastic stuff and clearly confirms that Bangladesh have finally come of age along with their success and good performances in the last few years. Despite New Zealand scoring and surpassing the magical 300, it still hasn't fazed the Bangladeshi Tigers!!! and usually the old Bangladesh team would've cracked and bowled out cheaply or something but they proved everyone wrong yet again. The team has obviously improved and are still improving all the time. Don't know about you but Bangladesh in my opinion are no more minnows and certainly TheRisingTeam!!!! - special congrats bangla tigers!!!

  • Kazi_Rajib on November 3, 2013, 11:54 GMT

    Those who are talking about flat pitch; I think they didn't sow India & Australia ODI series. Every match scored 600+ runs. Is there any question arises about plat pitch? So it's all about the high class performance of Bangladesh. Tiger's are really done well.

  • A.Haque on November 3, 2013, 11:53 GMT

    We are proud of Bangladesh... Thank you for showing us yet again another tremendous "Banglawash"! Roar all the way Tigers!!! Go ahead!!

    And yes, well done New Zealand!! It wouldn't have been this intense a match without you. It for sure brought us on the edges of our seats! :)

    We request, on the behalf of the Bangladesh Fans, to increase the number of matches for Bangladesh. Thus, we can improve and let our talent shine.

  • on November 3, 2013, 11:52 GMT

  • mahfuz555555 on November 3, 2013, 11:52 GMT

  • on November 3, 2013, 11:48 GMT

    Didn't think BD would actually chase this target down,but being a BD fan, way to go guys, made us proud :D.

    NZ played fairly well to get that score. Well done to Taylor and Co.

  • on November 3, 2013, 11:46 GMT

    BD is too much for NZ, they can't take it any more, please admit it, no more excuses please.

  • on November 3, 2013, 11:45 GMT

    lol re lol banglawash lol...go tiger go...

  • rizwankamal on November 3, 2013, 11:44 GMT

  • ph_younus on November 3, 2013, 11:44 GMT

    @ Cricinfo.com, Please change your Wall news title into" BANGLA WASH BY TIGERS". Well done Bangladesh, Proud of Tigers.

  • on November 3, 2013, 11:43 GMT

    This is how you shrug off a minnows tag!

  • CrICkeeet on November 3, 2013, 11:43 GMT

    I dont know how can b a "T20" Mccullum selected as a captain in all formats... Mccullum in TEST is exactly same thing as Ed Cowan, Laxman in T20....

  • Ruchiralk on November 3, 2013, 11:40 GMT

    Oh dear NZ, if they can't beat Bangladesh with star players like Ross Taylor just imagine what will happen without them in 1 weeks time in Sri Lanka. btw Congrats Bangladesh for the series win.

  • on November 3, 2013, 11:39 GMT

    Many Many congratulations to Bangladesh cricket team. You guys really makes us proud. All the credit goes to coach shane Jurgensen and his coaching stuff. You made these boys to believe in themselves

  • sameer_warun on November 3, 2013, 11:39 GMT

    If NZ score 350, BAN will get that also !

  • sj_jemima75 on November 3, 2013, 11:37 GMT

    Bangladesh chased down the total as though they had experienced 300 targets once in two games. Banglawash completed! I hope we can Iron New Zealand in the T20s after they get kind of dried! =D

  • Riffat on November 3, 2013, 11:37 GMT

    It 7-0 now; great chase by BNG. To all NZ fans, no offense but you need to produce more players like Cairns, Flemming, Crowe, Vettori, Hadlee, Bond, Morrison, Jones, Smith, Reid, Turner, Sutcliffe etc; especially some top class spinners in sub-continent conditions.

  • sameer_warun on November 3, 2013, 11:37 GMT

    KILLING CRICKET !!! flat pitches with new rules !

  • nthuq on November 3, 2013, 11:33 GMT

    @Mervo, it's not whether pitches are flat or spicy. It's the variety that counts. We've had two low scoring matches, and one high scoring one. That's perfectly alright in my book.

    Well played once more Bangladesh. You're making your nation proud! Impressive again how the whole team pulled through for the win. A shame Shamsur played THAT shot on 96 though. I have a feeling though that this 307 would've been chased down on this pitch by Australia or India even more comfortably though, as their batsmen are better able to pace innings. We definitely need to schedule more matches for Bangladesh so our players can gain more experience.

  • on November 3, 2013, 11:31 GMT

    w r happy now throughout this victory named by BanglaWash

  • bobbo2 on November 3, 2013, 11:30 GMT

    NZ have been rubbish on this tour and I am a big NZ fan who sticks with the team in the highs and lows. Well done BD. NZ have been so disappointing that I wanted BD to chase the 307 and they did it. Great effort.

    Just having a hissy fit here. I will be back supporting NZ tomorrow.

  • on November 3, 2013, 11:28 GMT

    Congratulations Bangladesh on a......... "Bangla walsh " of New Zealand.

  • on November 3, 2013, 11:28 GMT

    This is called, Banglawash !!! New word in cricket dictionary .....

  • on November 3, 2013, 11:27 GMT

    Bangladesh Won , that's called another Banglawash

    nz worst team losing 3-0 odi can't win test draw 0-0. I Cant digest such poor performance by nz

  • SaroarIslam on November 3, 2013, 11:22 GMT

    Yes. .yes. .yes. .yes. . .we have done the BANGLAWASH. .congrast tigers

  • Mervo on November 3, 2013, 10:54 GMT

    What is it with these dead flat wickets on the sub-continent suddenly? Please send the bowlers home. They have no part in these matches. Use the bowling machine and save them all a lot of sweat. This was supposed to be a game for a team, not just batsmen.

  • asiacricket1234 on November 3, 2013, 10:08 GMT

    Dont think we can win today :(. Gave away too many run. Donno why Mushi didn't use Mominul or Zia. Considering how well Mominul bowled he should have got some over. It'd have done good for us. Really feeling sorry for Samsur. he deserved a 100 :(.

  • on November 3, 2013, 9:51 GMT

    no worries even mushi gone them2 playing staedily with mature production.carry on

  • on November 3, 2013, 9:13 GMT

    BD has a chance in this match on this particular ground, Fatullah. But I think BD may lost and it will be only for experience like they are too rush. Nonetheless, Mushfiq has gone, the most experience player and captain. However, it is/was a great chace for BD to the world again that they are tigers how r coming to capture all super 8.

  • on November 3, 2013, 9:10 GMT

    Bangladesh is going to win if they are not less than 230/5 after 40 overs..

  • on November 3, 2013, 9:07 GMT

    naim got to make sure he rotates the strike and goes for 1s n 2s cause he tends to slow down

  • on November 3, 2013, 8:06 GMT

    bd should exploit the poww er plays and build good opening partnership n keep a good runrate

  • on November 3, 2013, 7:25 GMT

    bd should not relax. They will get good numbers in ranking if they win 3-0

  • on November 3, 2013, 7:22 GMT

    pathetic captainship by mushy not bowling ziaur at least n favouring razzak becoming very obvious since zimb tour

  • on November 3, 2013, 7:18 GMT

    its chaseable total but questionable captainship not bowling at least ziaur

  • Warm_Coffee on November 3, 2013, 7:01 GMT

    Poor stuff from Bangladesh. Looks like they weren't even trying on the field and probably don't care and that's not right. Anyway its a dead rubber and series already won :P

  • M_Rakibul_Islam on November 3, 2013, 6:56 GMT

    Mushfiq's captaincy in this match so far is really poor. He should've opted to bat first in this batting pitch. He had 9 players who can bowl & used only 6 of them. Apart 4m Nasir all the BD bowlers bowled poor line & length in some part of the innings. As Mashrafi conceded too many runs (over 9 per over), Mushy could've used Zia for few overs. Zia seems more economical than Mash in recent months. And Mushy haven't used Mominul for a single over- that's really disappointing! Naeem was another good option to give a breakthrough, but haven't been used for a single ball in this series.

  • hokeypokey on November 3, 2013, 6:36 GMT

    Ross Taylor is worldclass..took contol of the nz innings..welldone munro too.

  • M_Rakibul_Islam on November 3, 2013, 6:33 GMT

    Not only Rubel but the 160+ million supporters of BD team will regret for the dropped chance of Ross Taylor. He is destroying the BD's dream of 3-0 win.

  • on November 3, 2013, 6:22 GMT

    I'm extremely disappointed with the fielding of Bangladeshis today. I doubt they're into the game at all. What a shame!

  • on November 3, 2013, 6:12 GMT

    nez has good chance to win this match.

  • Dhali_BD_Fan on November 3, 2013, 5:54 GMT

    What kind of attitude is this from the BD players? Its as if there is no effort, missed catches, miss fielding repeatedly? This is not how you close a series, I am disappointed, very disappointed at this effort from BD. Might as well just declare this game.

  • on November 3, 2013, 3:47 GMT

    Oh some changes there in the both team. Though it is painful to drop a key player due to injury but we think the match between Bangladesh and Newzealand would be enjoyable. The competition is going on.
