Commentator: Deivarayan Muthu

7.50pm The tournament has sprung to life with Pakistan toppling SA, SL toppling India, and Bangladesh knocking out New Zealand. Bangladesh, though, will be knocked out if Australia beat England. Bangladesh could sneak in if it's a washout tomorrow (by virtue of more wins). Today was fun. Hope you enjoyed the coverage as much as we did bringing it to you. I will leave you with some magic from Isam and Sid Monga: Red sun rising. Until next time, goodbye and good night from myself, Varun, and Raghav.

7.30pm Unbridled joy for Bangladesh, agony for New Zealand. The camera pans out to the victorious captain - Mashrafe repeatedly punches the air in delight. Mashrafe, now Bangladesh's captain, was 21 years old when Bangladesh toppled Australia in Cardiff 12 years ago. Ashraful was the architect of that epic win. Shakib and Mahmudullah now. Bangladesh's players take a lap of honour and acknowledge their fans. Great scenes in Cardiff!

What makes this sweeter is that they have won it from the depths of 33 for 4. Their big gun Tamim was swung out for a duck. Sarkar, Sabbir, and Mushfiq, the birthday boy, also departed cheaply. Mahmudullah and Shakib then responded with a massive 224-run stand - the highest ever for any wicket for Bangladesh in ODI cricket. Shakib was bowled with his side nine away from victory, but Mossadek, who had stifled New Zealand with three wickets in the slog overs in the first innings, sealed the deal.

Mashrafe: It is a great feeling. Both times I have been here. I still remember 2005 against Australia and now against New Zealand. Overall, we are very much satisfied. First match we were not up to the mark with the ball. Today, the bowlers hit the right areas. Mosaddek's three wickets was crucial. Neesham and Corey got out to him in New Zealand. Once the left-hander came, I went to the offspinner. The way Shakib and Mahmudullah batted was out of the world for me. We had the confidence once we beat New Zealand in Ireland. We are feeling great right now.

Williamson: To be fair, we thought that was a scrappy total to get. The boys were outstanding with the new ball, but saying that it was a long way away from a perfect performance. The partnership under Shakib and Mahmudullah under pressure was outstanding. 285-290 would have been a par total. Bangladesh now have a chance to make the semi-final.

Mahmudullah: I think the best part was we did not talk too much. We were just batting and just wanted to be positive. Early on it was swinging. Once it stopped swinging, it was easier to bat on. I think Tamim batted superbly in his tournament. Losing him early on was a bit of a shock. Shakib and me just wanted to hit the gaps and put the bad balls away.

Shakib, Man of the Match: As Mahmudullah said we did not talk. We did not want to chase that down. We just wanted to bat 40 overs and see where we were. Winning a match in a ICC tournament in a big thing. From hereon, we can only go forward.

Ben: "Just imagine the scenes in Dhaka and Chittagong..."

gautam: "the fact that no one has called this win against the world cup finalists an 'upset' yet shows how much bangladesh has evolved"

Aquil: "Two icebergs finally sink the BLACK CAPS titanic"

giri: "That partnership reminded me of yuvi/kaif in natwest final. Well done Bangladesh. Well deserved"

Milne to Mosaddek Hossain, FOUR runs, Bangladesh have done it! They have done it again in Cardiff! They have KO'd NZ this time. Full and outside off, reaches out with his hands and flashes it in the gap between slip and gully. Yes, the man who set it up closes it out. How fitting! Mosaddek roars after the famous win. Mahmudullah has his hands aloft in utter delight

Boult to Mahmudullah, FOUR runs, Mahmudullah raises his hundred with a boundary. This almost cleared the long boundary. He celebrates the milestone with the sajdah. Not sure how I can describe this gesture. He points to his bat repeatedly and looks at the dressing room. Back of a length on the leg stump, launched over square leg

Mahmudullah two shy of three figures

Here is Mosaddek. Can the man who set it up sew it up for Bangladesh?

Boult to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, Shakib swings... and misses. The stumps are rattled but Bangladesh are all but home. Full on off and middle, he backs away outside leg, looks to smack it away but loses his shape and his off stump. The record 224-run stand is over. Crumbs of consolation for NZ
