Fahima Khatun301605.3392000
Salma Khatun2.20733.0070000
6.5 to SFM Devine, 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 to RH Priest, 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
18.2 to LMM Tahuhu, 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
Jahanara Alam201608.0052011
Ritu Moni401844.50121000
12.3 to SW Bates, 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
14.5 to KJ Martin, 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
16.1 to AM Peterson, 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
16.5 to AC Kerr, 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
Rumana Ahmed401724.25101000
13.2 to ML Green, 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
17.4 to LM Kasperek, 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

Leigh Kasperek3.502336.00103010
2.6 to Murshida Khatun, 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
17.2 to Salma Khatun, 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
19.5 to Nigar Sultana, 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
Lea Tahuhu10505.0050040
Amelia Kerr401012.50181000
15.1 to Jahanara Alam, 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
Hayley Jensen401132.75150010
4.6 to Ayasha Rahman, 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
12.1 to Rumana Ahmed, 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 to Fahima Khatun, 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
Sophie Devine401413.50162000
14.6 to S Mostary, 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
