its on legstump and its easy to clip down to long leg for the winning run. New Zealand win!
Even with a few wickets falling at the end, its the second comfortable win in the Tri-series for New Zealand.
It looked at the break that Bangladesh's score was a little below par and that's what it proved.
With all of the New Zealand batsmen getting in, they never had to take any risks. Both Latham and Neesham managed to make it to fifty. Completing the victory with 15 balls to spare.
In a game where we have had five players score over fifty, Jimmy Neesham has just been named man of the match.
With today's win New Zealand stretch their lead at the top of the table, with 8 points. Both Bangladesh and Ireland are stuck on two.
The great news is that both of those teams will have the opportunity to close the gap on the leaders this Friday.
When we are back at Malahide, the game will start at 10:45am. I'll be there and I hope that you can join me too. Until then, this is Justin saying goodnight from Clontarf.
