Mills to Tamim Iqbal, no run, and he rips one straight through the batsman first ball, zipped through off a length and Tamin was cut in two as he tried to play to leg


Mills to Tamim Iqbal, no run


Mills to Tamim Iqbal, OUT, slapped straight to cover and if this task was difficult for Bangladesh already, it's got even harder now. A back of a length ball outside off, Tamin didn't move his feet out to it, went to cut and got it off the toe straight to the fielder at shoulder height for an easy catch

Tamim Iqbal c Guptill b Mills 0 (3m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00


Mills to Shakib Al Hasan, FOUR, back of a length outside off again and almost a second wicket, trying to cut again, it comes off a wild top edge that flies just over the outstretched right hand of slip and goes for four


Mills to Shakib Al Hasan, 1 run, fuller on leg stump, off the pad towards square leg


Mills to Mohammad Ashraful, FOUR, picked up off a length and smashed over midwicket, stand and deliver here, good timing, he was wacthing McCullum. Got this from outside off, one foot down the wicket and heaved into the on side

Bangladesh 9/1   KD Mills 1-0-9-1

Mills to Mohammad Ashraful, no run, slapped to mid on, didn't time it from a fullish ball around off stump


Mills to Mohammad Ashraful, 1 run, straighter, similar good length, worked wide of mid on this time


Mills to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, sliding across the left-hander, well timed back foot punch but a superb diving save at cover point by Williamson saves four


Mills to Shakib Al Hasan, FOUR, this time gets it through taking a step down the wicket and slapping a full ball on an off stump line past extra cover, excellent timing


Mills to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, tries to go off side again but chips it to cover point. Undone by a slower ball from around the wicket, he again gave himself some room outside off but was reaching for the ball angled in towards middle stump, was there too soon and it came off low on the bat and chipped to the fielder diving forward in the covers

Shakib Al Hasan c Williamson b Mills 11 (12m 8b 2x4 0x6) SR: 137.50


Mills to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, fourth-stump line, left alone outside off

Bangladesh 19/2   KD Mills 2-0-14-2

Mills to Mushfiqur Rahim, 1 run, off stump line, turned round to deep square


Mills to Mohammad Ashraful, 1 run, played in a similar way towards the same deep fielder


Mills to Mushfiqur Rahim, 2 runs, bit more width, pushed down to third man, wide enough of him to come back for two


Mills to Mushfiqur Rahim, OUT, big shot into the leg side but not enough on it and caught at deep midwicket by Kane Williamson running back, another smart catch from Williamson, had to judge that carefully, running back and around, held it well. Rahim tried to pick up a length ball from around off stump and didn't get hold of it properly

Mushfiqur Rahim c Williamson b Mills 4 (9m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66


Mills to Mohammad Ashraful, 1 run, slower ball, back of a length around off stump, turned through square leg


Mills to Mahmudullah, no run, back of a length outside off, cut at and missed

Bangladesh 34/3   KD Mills 3-0-19-3

Mills to Ziaur Rahman, 2 runs, and there should have been a cheap wicket, slapped a long way up in the air, Vettori comes around from deep square leg and seemed to get there before letting the ball through his hands down low


Mills to Ziaur Rahman, no run, swing and a miss to a back of a length ball


Mills to Ziaur Rahman, SIX, back of a length and heaved over deep midwicket, a big thump that, rocking back and giving it a right old thwack


Mills to Ziaur Rahman, 1 run, much better, full just outside off, slapped only along the ground to long on


Mills to Nasir Hossain, FOUR, short again and a boundary again, taken from outside off and gets it wide of deep midwicket, poor bowling this


Mills to Nasir Hossain, 1 run, slower ball, full on the stumps, leaned out and driven to extra cover

Bangladesh 111/5   KD Mills 4-0-33-3
