Dave: "Not sure what the selectors see in Elliot. He came into the team to cover for Jacob Oram, and although I guess he bats alright for a 4th seamer option, he no longer really bowls, and surely you couldn't class him as a batsman. He scores far too slowly for limited overs cricket and puts pressure on the batsmen around him."

Rubel comes back into the attack

21.1

Rubel Hossain to Latham, OUT, Short ball outside the off stump. Latham looks to run it down to third man and gets a faint edge that Rahim takes easily. Rubel will certainly look back at this series with a lot of fondness. Maybe, the change in pace did the trick for Bangladesh. Either ways, a good bowling change by Rahim

Saad: "Bangladesh certainly looks a balanced bowling side. Mominuls occasional spin certainly gives Mushfiq an added option. However Bangladesh needs to work on their batting. Opening pair yet to be fixed. Nasir seems out of touch for last couple of innings. Marshal ayub can be a good choice for no 3. All in all bangladesh needs to get a formidable combination before 2015." This attack isn't a winning combination on pitches outside Bangladesh

Sabbir: " I agree totally. To be a formidable side outside Bangladesh we need more and better fast bowlers. But it will not be easy to develop with slow and turning pitches." The fact that they don't get to tour much also means that they can't do it abroad too.

Sami: "Bangladesh has good fast bowlers. In last match, mashrafee or rubel bowled in similar pace to kiwis. Previously, it was absent. Rubel recently also gets some variations as well.

Wahid: "Including today's match Bangladesh would be playing a meager 18 ODI's in 2 years (not to speak of only 8 tests, as opposed to about 20 by others). Bangladesh's record in this matches (w-9, l-7 and NR-1) are better than a couple of the countries ranked higher. Among the other test playing countries NZ would play minimum number of matches; which is 34. Sri Lanka with 63 playing the most.All the other teams would be playing 40-50 matches. How could you expect to show your mettle if you are not given enough opportunity? It is about time ICC takes notice and arrange for more matches for Bangladesh."

Mashrafe Mortaza to Taylor, 1 run, pulls it to deep midwicket for a single

and there we have a century from Taylor. He paced his innings well as he played second fiddle to Colin Munro when Munro was going after the bowlers. In the last ten overs he cut loose and got New Zealand to a score that seems a tad too difficult for Bangladesh to overhaul

The tactics from Rahim were a bit baffling. He got Ziaur Rahman into the team and he didn't get to bowl a single over. Mominul also wasn't given a bowl. It will take a solid effort from them to chase down this total. It is not beyond them as this list of their scores while chasing tells us. Join us back at 13.30 local time for the Bangladesh innings
