ICC CT 2017: New Zealand vs Bangladesh Preview

ICC CT 2017: New Zealand vs Bangladesh Previewā€¯

Bangladesh were inspired by brilliant tons by all-rounder Shahik Al Hasan and Mahmudullah to stun New Zealand by five wickets in the Champions Trophy cricket tournament at Cardiff's Sophia Gardens on Friday.

Despite a good start with the ball, New Zealand bowlers looked helpless in front of the mammoth partnership of 224 runs between Shakib and Mahmudullah for the fifth wicket, as they failed to get a breakthrough. It was the third highest for the fifth wicket in all ODIs.

Despite the win, Bangladesh, who now have three points from three matches, are still uncertain of a semi-final berth and they will have to wait the outcome of the Group A match between England and Australia in Birmingham on Saturday.

There was a brief lull after the equation was down to 70 off the last 10 overs, but Shakib and Mahmudullah opened up again with cuts, chips, full-blooded drives and an upper-cut to bring the asking rate down to below a run a ball. After that, Mahmudullah ensured the cheers wouldn't die down by getting there with a heave to the square-leg fence.

"This must rank as one of Bangladesh's finest One-Day International (ODI) wins ever, on par with our victory, also in Cardiff, against Australia in 2005, and against England at the Adelaide Oval in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015", Bashar wrote in his column on the International Cricket Council (ICC) website. The only survivor from that side who played on Friday was the man who will bask in all the glory of the win as the captain of the Bangladesh side now.

Was Raikkonen sacrificed for Vettel?
Ferrari have denied all claims with regards to team orders and made it clear that their drivers are free to race each other. Vettel's success was Ferrari's first in the principality since seven-time champion Michael Schumacher triumphed in 2001.

Earlier, a good bowling display from Bangladesh restricted the Kiwis to 265-8 in their 50 overs. After a hard final 10 overs of their batting innings, Tim Southee and Boult combined brilliantly to give them a dream start with the ball.

The New Zealand (NZ) vs Bangladesh (BAN) live broadcast of the match will start at 03:00PM IST. He weathered that phase, and when Mahmudullah joined him, the two seamlessly shifted gears in a stunning counter-attack. "He took the pressure off me".

Bangladesh, appearing in their first Champions Trophy since 2006, have won five of their past nine ODI series and had beaten New Zealand in Dublin prior to the tournament.

Off-spinner Mossadek Hossain (three for 13) and paceman Taskin Ahmed (two for 43) justified their respective recalls with impressive returns.

Mosaddek took two wickets-that of Niel Broom (36) and Corey Anderson (0) - in the 44th over and then had another one in the 46th over in the form of James Neesham (23) to stop the Kiwis on their tracks.

Guptill's 33 then came to an end when he was lbw to Rubel Hossain.

Kane Williamson has said that New Zealand not reaching 300 was a big blow to their hopes.

The loser of the Group A match is out of the tournament. Apart from Mosaddek, Taskin Ahmed (2/43) bowled well for Bangladesh.
