New Zealand Vs Bangladesh match result: New Zealand win by 2 wickets
A short preview of what happened
Not the most awaited game of the tournament but Bangladesh vs New Zealand delivered all the goods of a marquee contest. New Zealand collects two more points.
New Zealand survived a dramatic late fightback by Bangladesh to pull off a nervy two-wicket win in their World Cup clash at The Oval.
Man-of-the-match Ross Taylor scored a 91-ball 82 before a clatter of wickets gave Bangladesh the chance to pull off a shock win.
DKODING | Matt Henry | CWC19
Slightly expensive but bowled well at the death and finished as the most prolific bowler on the show with four wickets.
DKODING | Ross Taylor| CWC19
Batted beautifully and looked on course for a century before feathering a leg-side delivery to the wicketkeeper. The difference between the sides and player of the match.
DKODING | Trent Boult| CWC19
Like his opening partner Henry, Boult failed to make an early breakthrough but came back well with two late wickets as the Kiwis restricted Bangladesh superbly.
Other players who performed
DKODING | Lockie Ferguson| CWC19
Produced a fierce spell of pace bowling in the middle overs and was unfortunate not to add to his dismissal of Tamim.
DKODING | Shakib-Al-Hasan | CWC19
Back-to-back World Cup fifties for Shakib, who then dismissed both New Zealand openers to give his side real hope. One of the best all-rounders in the game.
Bangladesh – Bangla tigers had many ups and down in the game. They nearly choked Black Caps to lose the game until Santner changed the game in New Zealand’s favour.
New Zealand – Black Caps had a tough day but at the end prevailed with two points
To Sum up in less words :
