Bangladesh in New Zealand T20I Match

New Zealand v Bangladesh

New Zealand won by 10 wickets (with 70 balls remaining)

Hello and welcome to Seddon Park in Hamilton for the only T20I between New Zealand and Bangladesh.

Shakib has called correctly and Bangladesh will bat first on what looks to be a good cricket wicket. The weather is fine and the temperature is about 24 degrees.

Thanks for joining us for live coverage of the match, I am Marc Ellison and look forward to bringing you the action in what promises to be an exciting encounter.

Bangladesh arrive in New Zealand on the weekend without their leading seamer Mashrafe however they continued to show a lot of promise on their recent games against India where Mahmudullah and Mushfiqur performed admirably and captain Shakib led from the front.

New Zealand has a debutante in Peter Ingram who has shown consistent form in all forms of the game and deserves his chance.
