6.20 pm What a compelling performance from New Zealand. They had played their first three Super 10s matches at three different venues and had read all those conditions perfectly. They came to Kolkata and did it again, to go into the semi-finals with a clean sheet. Nothing captured New Zealand's assessment of what a good score on this pitch was better than Colin Munro shelving his attacking game and plodding along.
Kane Williamson is the Player of the Match for his 42 off 32 balls, which on this surface was gold. "It was pretty tough, it spun and kept low, batting in the first six was nice but it got a lot tougher," he says. "I think it was a good batting effort all around. Guys came in and played good cameos. It's very tough, going into each game it's important to read the wicket and opposition as best you can and pick the best team accordingly."
So New Zealand go into the semis with four wins, and Bangladesh go home with four defeats. It's been a gut wrenching campaign for them. First they lost Taskin and Sunny to bans for illegal actions, and then that defeat to India ...
Mashrafe Mortaza: "It was very tough but we can take some positives, like Mustafizur's five-for today. He is very difficult to gauge and our batters also struggle in the nets. Hopefully he will go on for at least ten more years."
Williamson: "Mustafizur is brilliant, especially on these wickets, his very good slower ball is responsive on such wickets and he bowled very well today. ... We have done a lot of travel but the boys have been great and have embraced the schedule and the pitches ... We knew today was going to be a scrap and it was ... The bowling was clinical again."
That brings us to the end of the commentary for this game. Thank you for all your emails, and thank you for reading. Cheers.
The Fizz is the new batsman.
