Mashrafe Mortaza302117.0063000
15.4 to CJ Anderson, played on! Mashrafe's slower ball takes an age to arrive and Anderson read it wrong, he tried to smash it too early and got a thick inside edge on to his stumps. This pitch is not easy to play shots on, not at all easy. 100/4
Shuvagata Hom301605.3351000
Shakib Al Hasan403308.25123200
Mustafizur Rahman402255.50111100
3.6 to HM Nicholls, bowled him! A lovely, slower cutter, pitching on a good length outside off, drawing Nicholls into the front foot cover drive, and then laughing its way through the gap between bat and pad to knock over the off stump. The Fizz has struck, and like he usually does. 25/1
8.6 to KS Williamson, and this time he is bowled! The Fizz is a special, special bowler. The batsmen know what he is going to do but they still can't play him. Williamson went right across his crease to lap the ball behind square but was beaten by the slower one again. Off stump takes a beating. That ball cut off the pitch as well.. 57/2
17.5 to GD Elliott, that's a super catch! And Elliott's been dismissed by the slower off cutter too. The Fizz pitched fuller and outside leg, and Elliott closed the face of his bat to play the ball on the on-side too early. The leading edge went rather high in the air just beyond the circle at mid-on, and Hom ran back and caught it on the move as it dropped over his head. Judged it perfectly.. 122/5
19.4 to MJ Santner, how good is this kid, he's hit the stumps again. Four-for. Santner slogs across the line at a cutter that pitches outside off and homes in on off stump. 139/7
19.5 to NL McCullum, The Fizz has five! This is simply sensational bowling from someone so young. He is just keeping it simple, not experimenting, and knowing that is good enough to do the job. McCullum slogs across the line at a cutter and gets bowled too. 139/8
Al-Amin Hossain402726.75122110
14.5 to C Munro, Was that what you meant?! Middle stump has taken a pounding. He cleared his front foot towards leg to make room to free those arms and swung hard, he missed and Al-Amin was bang on target. 99/3
18.2 to LRPL Taylor, he's lucky to get away with this one! It was a full toss and I think Taylor swung a bit too early, lofting it towards deep midwicket, Mithun came running in from the boundary to take the catch. 127/6

Nathan McCullum20613.0080010
8.5 to Sabbir Rahman, another one goes! Santner comes running in from long on and tumbles forward to take a well-judged catch. Sabbir was aiming for deep midwicket with his heave across the line but the ball did not come on to the bat and he ended up mis-timing it. 38/4
Corey Anderson20703.5060000
Mitchell Santner301615.3392000
7.1 to Shakib Al Hasan, caught at wide long on! Shakib's holed out. He cleared his front foot and aimed to hit the ball over the boundary but only got as far as Nathan McCullum running swiftly to his left from long on. Santner makes a comeback after that expensive over.. 31/3
Mitchell McClenaghan10313.0030000
5.4 to Mohammad Mithun, bowled him! McClenaghan goes around the wicket and angles the slower ball towards the right-hander's stumps, Mithun moves forward and outside leg and slogs, trying to hit through the off side. His off stump takes a hit. 29/2
Grant Elliott401233.00170100
10.4 to Mushfiqur Rahim, is that another stumping? Or has he been bowled? What a ripping legcutter from Elliott, he pitched on a good length around middle stump and nipped it off the pitch away from the right-hander, Mushfiqur prodded at it from his crease and was beaten. The bails are off and he's on his way. That ball grazed the outside of off stump before it settled in Ronchi's gloves. Elliott wasn't sure himself what had happened!. 44/6
14.2 to Mashrafe Mortaza, lbw! Elliott's super slow balls have struck again. Wicket to wicket line and Mashrafe missed while trying to play towards the leg side. Was that going down leg though? I'll have to see replays. It is missing leg, by a long way. It was the offcutter from Elliott.. 59/8
14.5 to Mustafizur Rahman, six and out! The Fizz nicks one through to Ronchi, who was standing up to the stumps. It was another slow ball outside off and he poked at it. 65/9
Ish Sodhi3.402135.7272000
9.6 to Soumya Sarkar, Bangladesh going down swiftly here, Ronchi's whipped off the bails with Soumya's back foot outside his crease. He lunged forward, down on one knee and tried to sweep, Sodhi ripped the ball past him and his keeper did the rest. That ball did not turn but it bounced quite a bit, almost over the off stump. 43/5
11.6 to Mahmudullah, bowled him! Sodhi spins the googly through the gap between Mahmudullah's bat and pad to hit the stumps. He had come forward to defend, drawn out by the lovely flight. Ninth batsman bowled today.. 48/7
15.4 to Al-Amin Hossain, bowled him! That's the tenth batsman bowled today and New Zealand have crushed Bangladesh by 75 runs! Sodhi spun the googly past Al-Amin's swipe to end it. 70/10
