Bangladesh undone by New Zealand pace at World Cup

Bangladesh undone by New Zealand pace at World Cup

Date and Day: June 5, 2019, Wednesday.

However, the Bangladesh team is not the team of the past and is a tightly knit team with players capable of turning the course of the matches on their own.

New Zealand's Matt Henry snared four wickets in Bangladesh's innings.

Victory takes New Zealand to the top of the table as the only team so far to win both their matches.

Bangladesh win over South Africa was not a surprise for many as the team has been doing well in the fifty over format for quite some time.

Now they are playing together for the fifth time in World Cup.

Latham fell for nought and when Taylor was caught down the leg-side New Zealand nerves were jangling. Bangladesh coach Steve Rhodes has asked for his team to not get carried away as stern test awaits them in the campaign.

"We play nine games at nine different venues around the country", said Latham.

Bangladesh allrounder Shakib Al Hasan did some early damage as New Zealand got the wobbles in their chase. Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah were brilliant too playing counter-attacking cricket to perfection. He along with star bowler Mustafizur Rahman will have their work cut out once again against the Kiwis.

But, Santner remained calm and drilled the first ball of the 48th over to the cover boundary to hand New Zealand their second win of the tournament.

Matt Henry was bowled by Mohammad Saifuddin with seven required but Lockie Ferguson edged for four and Mitchell Santner (17 not out) drove to the boundary to guide his side home with 17 balls to spare. Against Bangladesh, the challenge would be heightened, and the bowlers must rise to it. The team first bundled the opposition out for a paltry score.

Bangladesh shocked the world when they managed to beat South Africa in their first game of the tournament, piling on the runs in the first innings and then defending the total to pick up a monumental win.

Both the teams are equal when it comes to points and have won one match each, New Zealand subduing Sri Lanka and Bangladesh outclassing the Proteas Team. The match will be played at Kennington Oval, London and will begin at 1800 HRS IST.

They would have some problems with the performance, but at the Cricket World Cup, only results matter for the Black Caps.

Bangladesh vs New Zealand Cricket World Cup clash will be broadcast on Star Sports 1, Star Sports 1 HD in English commentary and Star Sports 3 and Star Sports 3 HD in Hindi.
