So an ODI from the late 1990s. A slow, turning pitch, where chasing even 255 proves challenging. The batters found it difficult all along, and eventually, New Zealand's 254 proved more than enough. Sodhi had a memorable day, leaving the hosts with some work to do ahead of the final ODI. This was it from us tonight, and thanks for your company! This is Himanshu signing off one behalf of Ekanth, Raghav and Harshith.

Lockie Ferguson, the winning captain: "Excellent win by the boys. The way Henry and Blundell batted today took off the pressure. The way Ish bowled today was exceptional. Nice to see after all the hard work he has done. Nice to see Ish get the runs, and Kyle as well. Nice team performance."

Ish Sodhi is the Player of the Match for his 6 for 39, and 35 runs: "Really good day. Coming on the winning side... historically, we haven't done too well. Nice of Litton for calling me back. We thought it would start turning later in the day. Even Ravindra and McConchie got it to spin later. Not everyday is like that. This is really a tough place to come and win."

Litton Das after the loss: "Their lower order did really well. The wicket was not bad to bat on. Probably [we were] not up to the mark in batting. Our two senior guys played really well [with the bat]. Somebody has to get an 80 or 90 or 100."

Time for the presentations

9.24pm Sodhi leads the New Zealand side back after hitting Bangladesh for a six with the ball, and 35 with the bat. On his way to 6 for 39, he became the first New Zealand spinner to a six-for in ODIs; but unfortunately, the match could well be remembered for him being called back by Litton and co after Hasan ran him out backing up at the non-striker's end. Bangladesh collapsed from 60 for 1 to 92 for 5, only to never recover in the chase. But Mahmudullah and Tamim's contributions ahead of the World Cup could yet please them. Hang around for the presentations.

Ferguson to Khaled, OUT

the off stump trembles! On the shorter side of a length on off, as Khaled looked to pull early with his front leg out of the way. There was far too much pace on it for his liking, and that was it to give New Zealand a 1-0 lead in the series

Jamieson to Mustafizur, no run

length ball angled into off, but shapes away after pitching, as he looks to push but is beaten

40.5
Jamieson to Mustafizur, no run

good stop by Blundell leaping with his right glove up. Short ball from Jamieson which rose up, as Mustafizur looked to ramp but missed

Jamieson to Nasum, OUT

taken by long-on! Nasum's fun ends. Jamieson bowled on the fuller side of a length while angling it in, and lofted this back down the ground. There wasn't much timing on that one, and it landed right into Boult's lap

39.6
Sodhi to Nasum, no run

Sodhi slows it down considerably, and Nasum is beaten. And, and... the slip fielder seems to have dropped a catch. Yup, Allen dropped a simple catch, as Nasum looked to flick but got a leading edge

39.5

Sodhi to Nasum, SIX runs

another six for Nasum! Some late entertainment here. He sees this tossed up ball on a full length on middle, and has a free swing to go over deep midwicket

Sodhi to Nasum, no run

Sodhi to Mustafizur, 1 run

full ball on off, and pushed back

Will: "Sodhi didn't call back Hasan Mahmud after getting him bowled, disappointed!"

39.2
Sodhi to Mustafizur, no run

full and dipping on leg stump. Tucked towards square leg

Leg slip also present now

turns in off a length on middle and leg, and it's called dead ball since it hit his pad and he wasn't playing any shot

Sodhi to Mustafizur, no run

full and tossed up outside off. Driven to mid-off

38.6
Boult to Nasum, no run

beaten this time. Short of a length in the channel, and he looked to stab at it

38.5
6
Boult to Nasum, SIX runs

six just to the right of the long-on fielder. Again he gets his front leg out of the way, and launches this length ball on middle back over the bowler's head

38.4
Boult to Nasum, no run

bangs it in short again, and gets to shoot off the surface. Nasum keeps swaying out

By the way, Sodhi's is the first six-wicket haul by a New Zealand spinner in ODIs

38.3
Boult to Nasum, no run

another sharp short ball, which rises up considerably while angling in. Nasum lets that pass too

38.2
Boult to Nasum, no run

now bowls on the fuller side of a length, and in the channel outside off. Nasum pokes without foot movement, and is beaten

Boult to Nasum, no run

short ball around off, and Nasum sways out of the way

Sodhi to Hasan Mahmud, OUT

cleans him up! Sodhi has six. The middle stump is uprooted, and it's a typical legspinner's dismissal with a googly. Sodhi dangled it up on a length, and pitched it just outside off. Hasan looked to hoick across the line as the ball dipped on him, but was completely foxed by the ball turning in to hit his middle stump, as it went through the gap between pad and bat

Hasan Mahmud b Sodhi 0 (9b 0x4 0x6 9m) SR: 0
