    6.5 taken at point! Devine falls while trying to force the pace, which is exactly what Bangladesh were planning with their spinners keeping a tight line. The offbreak gets just enough bounce that Devine's cut shot goes off a top edge and Fahima does the rest at point 36/1
    8.1 lbw appeal reviewed. It looks a tight one as she walks across her stumps to play the sweep. New Zealand will be hoping the impact is outside the line, but ball-tracking says it is umpire's call, and by just enough of a shade. There is no trouble with the ball then going on and hitting the stumps so Priest has to go. 40/2
    12.3 through her! Lovely ball from Ritu Moni, hitting the pitch on a full length and cutting into middle stump. Bates tries to shovel it through midwicket, which affords the gap between bat and pad and it's more than enough. Huge strike. 66/3
    13.2 beautiful bowling! The flight on the ball draws Green down the pitch, but this time Rumana is able to get the ball to dip sharply, then turn even more, taking it away from the attempted lofted off drive and into the keeper's gloves. 68/4
    13.3 appeal for a run-out at the non-strikers and Jensen's already walking. Yep, replays show she is outside her crease when Martin's hit down the ground is deflected as Rumana tries to field it and goes straight onto the stumps 68/5
    14.5 taken at point! Fahima again and she celebrates with a finger on her lips. The rest of the Bangladesh team though are screaming with joy. This is a splendid effort. Martin falls, also trying to force the pace, her square drive lacking the placement 75/6
    16.5 taken at point again and Fahima with the finger-on-lips celebration again! Bangladesh are proving the doubters wrong. Kerr throws her head back as she watches her square drive being gobbled up very very easily 85/8
    16.1 outstanding catch! She runs up from the midwicket boundary at full tilt - that's a good 20-30 yards - then she has to dive forward because the ball is dipping on her and she does all of it perfectly to come up with a two-handed catch. Fargana Hoque, take a bow, or as is more customary, chuck the ball in disgust and scream with abandon. NZ haven't gone for the slog too often today and this one fails 81/7
    17.4 and down goes another! Beautiful legbreak again. Pitches in line with off stump. Draws the batter forward. The turn takes her outside edge and the keeper does the rest. Ripper of a ball. Not much that Kasperek could've done better 89/9
    18.2 appeal for lbw but the umpire doesn't give it. So Bangladesh review. This will be close again. The offbreak is very straight. The batter doesn't move her feet while trying to flick the ball. She's struck in line. No bat involved. And ball-tracking confirms it's hitting the stumps 91/10

    2.6 taken at square leg! Spin keeps working in this game and Murshida is the latest to learn that lesson. Goes for the sweep. A touch of extra bounce results in a top edge and an easy catch to Peterson 17/1
    4.6 taken at mid-off! New Zealand believe! They definitely believe! Rahman goes very very hard at the ball - a length ball that admittedly is there to be hit. But she gets too much height on it and not enough distance. Devine, the captain, tracks back and takes it very coolly. Then she dumps the ball into the pitch (possibly venting the frustration of a poor batting performance) 19/2
    11.2 another run-out! And it's Ritu who's walking this time while Rumana stares dumbfounded. A little nudge to midwicket creates chaos as first the batter takes a couple of steps out, then sees Amelia Kerr swooping down on it far too quickly, and says no. Simple, gentle lobbed throw to the non-strikers' then does the trick 37/4
    19.5 big slog, caught at long-on. The lowest total ever defended in a Women's T20 World Cup needs an update. Previously it was 97 (Bangladesh lost then too). Now it is 91 and Bangladesh are on the wrong side of it again 74/10
    9.5 Bangladesh are unravelling. Fargana blocks towards point and sets off for a single. She absolutely wants this single but Ritu Moni doesn't. So she has to go back and there is no time. Run-out for a duck and she storms off the field, pointing and screaming at her partner 31/3
    12.1 appeal for lbw and it's given! The batters come together to think about a review and they run out of time. Rumana is back to a very full ball. Then she compounds that mistake by playing all across the line. Straightforward decision from there on 40/5
    16.4 off stump knocked back! Charges out of her crease for a slog across the line but only ends up with an inside edge that deflects it onto her stumps 57/8
    14.6 taken at mid-on! Safe hands from Bates as she backtracks and takes it reverse cup.Mostary tried to take on a length ball, tried to find the boundary to bring the required rate down, but she mis-hits the shot and has to walk back 51/6
    15.1 knocks her over! The googly which Jahanara does not see coming. And boy does it ever turn. Pitches way outside off stump, tempting the batter to think about a cut shot. Then it screams back in to take down middle stump. Shane Warne would've been proud of that 51/7
    17.2 reverse sweep, and it does not work! Salma premeditates it, allowing the bowler to go quick and full and straight and Kasperek comes up with a wicket 59/9
