    0.4 oh this is plumb! Lovely length from Mashrafe. This is a lot fuller, and it's attacking middle and leg stump. Guptill, still new at the crease, is falling over as he tries to hit across the line. The flick shot doesn't connect. Thereafter, it's a straightforward decision 0/1
    13.1 huge appeal for an lbw and it's been upheld. Latham has gone for a review though. He is in trouble this time, playing the sweep. Decides to play one to a ball pitching on off stump - and he misses. He's struck in line with middle. That's what happens when you choose to sweep a wicket-to-wicket ball and miss. Now it's all about ball-tracking. Pitching in line, impact in line, clipping enough of leg stump to be umpire's call. Chris Brown, on debut, sends Latham on his way 47/3
    10.5 that's shot straight up and mid-on takes it. Tries to force the pace and a length ball on middle and leg stump takes the leading edge. Instead of going over midwicket - there is only one fielder there, if he had beat him, he would have had a boundary - it goes to Shakib who takes a dolly. The two-paced pitch, and rather more so the Bangladesh bowlers' discipline pays off 37/2
    not out
    22.5 what was the need to do that, I wonder. Steps out to go over long-on but is completely deceived in flight. Mosaddek also did well to fire this a little wide, which meant Neesham had to reach out. He played too early, missed it completely. So far he was down the wicket that Nurul, despite a fumble, managed to whip the bails off quickly. 98/4
    25.3 the skipper has scythed through Munro's defence. This is a deadly delivery. This one's bowled full on middle and off, the seam position is so perfect that it nips back in off the seam to beat Munro's tentative push outside the line. The middle stump is knocked back. Bangladesh are happy or what. Trouble for New Zealand 107/5
    37.3 that's dismal. Takes a short of a length ball on off stump and flicks it straight to midwicket's hands. He's been timing them brilliantly, but this time, he makes contact a little earlier than he wants to. Could have been a bit more bounce as well. 171/6
    42.5 as simple as catches come. Santner completely hustled by the bouncer. This was dug in short and it really fizzed through. That didn't stop Santner from going for a pull, got it too high on the bat and Mashrafe, who settled underneath at midwicket, gleefully accepted the dolly. First ODI wicket for Subasish. 198/7
    45.2 faintest of nicks and he's gone! Southee looks to carve that over cover point but was late on the stroke. Shakib fired this full. The ball went straight on to get a faint nick as the keeper completed a straightforward catch. The bowling change works. 214/8
    46.5 gets a faint little nick as he looks to fetch the hook from outside off. As far as decisions go, Paul Reiffell couldn't have asked for easier ones. No. 11 will have to come out now, with Broom on 99. 228/9
    49.6 backs away to carve that over the off side, misses but they decide to steal a bye. This time, Taskin collects the keeper's underarm throw cleanly and then runs up a few yards behind to remove the bails at the non-striker's end. Broom walks back unbeaten. Super, super knock 251/10

    7.2 a rush of blood and this is a familiar dismissal for Tamim. Comes down the track and belts a length ball straight to short cover. Dot-ball pressure does him. Well, it isn't exactly pressure. The target is only 251. It's just him feeling bogged down. It's him making a bad mistake 30/1
    31.3 he's skewed the ball to gully. Bangladesh coming apart at the seams and it looks ugly. This is a wide, length ball, and Kayes, despite being a set batsman, doesn't move his feet the required amount and ends up playing away from the body. Ends up slicing the ball to Broom 136/6
    22.6 absolute hara-kiri, oh dear. Silly, silly running between the wickets. Kayes dabs it to short cover and sets off for a single. His partner initially responds but suddenly stops and turns back to the crease. At one point, both batsmen are in the race for the non-striker's end. So absent-minded was Sabbir that Kayes overtook him. Kayes thought he was out and was just about to exit when the umpires went upstairs to check who was actually out. Sabbir gets a rude shock of his life when he finds out he has to go. Coming back to the fielding effort, the wicketkeeper did really well to collect the throw on the half-volley and then whip the bails off. The only way a wicket looked like falling at this stage was a run-out. 105/2
    25.3 he put down a dolly in the last over, and has now sent back Mahmudullah with an absolute scorcher of a delivery at 144 clicks. This is full, and furiously fast on off stump from wide of the crease. Mahmudullah was probably expecting a short ball and was rooted to the crease. The ball dipped really fast and the ball had hit the base of off stump when the bat came down. 112/3
    28.4 absolute half-tracker that, and Shakib, who had all the time in the world to rock back and cut behind point, slices it to short third man. The game is turning, and turning very quickly 128/4
    30.4 credit for this wicket should go to the point fielder, who saved a second run off the previous delivery. This one is nicely tossed up outside off, Mosaddek looks to clear mid-off but ends up hitting it flat and straight to the fielder. Didn't get underneath the flight whatsoever. Poor application, Bangladesh are falling apart here. 134/5
    32.4 superb stuff from Ronchi. This is almost a yorker, sneaks under Tanbir's bat as he was shimmying down the pitch, the dip surprising him. The wicketkeeper has very little time to react because the ball was pitched so full. He has to stay low, takes the ball cleanly and whips the bails off. Third wicket for the New Zealand captain in his fourth over 141/7
    42.4 pacy bouncer on middle and leg, he goes for a hook but the ball got big on him. He got himself into a tangle and the ball brushed the glove on the way through to Ronchi. There was nothing on HotSpot, but real time snicko produces a small spike. After some deliberation, umpire C Shamsuddin has given it out. That's the series to New Zealand. 184/10
    36.4 taken at mid-off as Boult deceives Mashrafe with a slower ball. He was on the back foot, swinging straight through the line. This same length - full on off stump - would have disappeared had it come at full pace. But this is the offcutter. Arrives a lot later than the Bangladesh captain expects and he skews it off the bottom of the bat 162/8
    39.3 good work from Ronchi again, as he covers the slider - pushed through past the advancing left-hander's outside edge - and flicks the bails off in a flash. Deft work, from both Santner and the wicketkeeper 175/9
