    9.4 gets it in a bit tighter to Tamim now, and this time succeeds in drawing the edge as this is claimed by second slip. Looked like he was just getting away there, but he has to go. 27/2
    5.4 classic set-up from Boult. Rocked him with a shorter one earlier, before sending in this length ball which does too much for Imrul as it goes through the gate to knock back his off peg. Ends a torturous stay at the crease for Imrul, who I suspect would be happy to get back to his seat in the pavilion! 4/1
    27.4 comes down the ground to try and deposit Vettori over long on, but ends up getting a bottom-edge which lands to Anderson in the region, who takes it safely. Ends a really special knock from the No.3. Didn't really need to go for it, but perhaps the milestone had him lose his concentration just momentarily 117/3

    33.6 Shakib, who had a cheeky smile with his partner after getting away with the previous ball, now has to go after attempting to connect with this back of a length that was shaping away outside of off, with this catching the outside of his bat to fly to Ronchi for a simple take 151/4
    39.2 was looking to come down and ramp the bowler over the slips, but ends up offering a feeble edge as the ball came at him slower than he had expected, with Ronchi taking this from behind gleefully 182/5
    47.2 and Sabbir's spirited cameo comes to a close as he mistimes this heave through long off, with Brendon finally latching onto a chance to take this with a tumble 260/6
    49.5 Nasir unable to make it two in two as his second attempt ends up slicing over to third man, with Taylor doing well to run backwards and to his right just at the end to claim this 287/7

    30.4 Shakib makes another vital breakthrough for Bangladesh as Guptill has to go after trying to clear the long on fielder, but ends up holing out to hm. Rubel was the catcher there. Has been an excellent century to give his team a platform from which to take Bangladesh on 164/3
    4.1 and Bangladesh have snagged the huge wicket of McCullum as Shakib flights one just outside off, with the bruiser looking to take on long off with another heave, but doesn't quite time it away as this one lands to the fielder in the deep, who is able to take it comfortably. Bangladesh will be might pleased to see the back of him 27/1
    4.5 Bangladesh have just taken another huge wicket as Kane departs from the oval after playing at this one which just holds up on him outside off, with this being sliced over uppishly to Tamim at cover. Shakib has proven the miracle worker with the ball so far. Bangladesh on top in Hamilton! 33/2
    41.2 Ross looking to slog-sweep this over cow corner as he is struck in front of middle and leg. Looked as plumb as they get, with Ross initially walking off before Corey intervened. Ross decides to go for the review. Quite a waste of a review DRS confirms this indeed was going on to hit timber. The only thing now is NZ are down a review as they enter this crucial period of the match. May come back to hurt them later... 219/5
    38.5 Rubel has struck as Elliott goes chasing after this wider, fullish length, slicing away to Taskin at sweeper cover, who has to dive slightly forward to claim it. Ends an important knock from Elliott as he tried to up the rate a touch 210/4
    47.2 Nasir has the last laugh though as he rocks this Hamilton crowd into silence with a slightly quicker, flatter delivery that castle Anderson after he looked for the almighty heave over midwicket. Nasir lets out a roar of approval, and New Zealand now go seven down, with a big wicket back in the shed 269/7
    44.4 Shakib strikes for the fourth time today, and again in the first over of a spell, as Ronchi looked to take on the deep extra-cover by hitting wide of him, but probably should have gone straight back down as he ends up holing out to the fielder in the region. Helps to redress the scales somewhat as we get into the final portion of the innings 247/6

Match Notes

  • Black Caps gaining the All Blacks experience

    Shared knowledge between Mike Hesson and his All Blacks counterpart, Steve Hansen, will play a role in New Zealand's campaign in the knockout stages of the World Cup

  • Defeat no dampener for fearless Bangladesh

    Mahmudullah's second century on the trot and the intensity of their bowling and fielding performance against New Zealand will give Bangladesh plenty of confidence to carry into the quarter-finals

  • Four years on, fire in their belly

    This Bangladesh isn't the side that collapses in a heap at the first signs of pressure. This Bangladesh is the side that can challenge till the end, if not yet beat, the very best
