W

to Tamim, out Lbw!! Huge shout for lbw and Tamim is given out. He reviews straightaway. Fair delivery. UltraEdge confirms that there is no bat involved. Three reds and the in-form Tamim goes for a blob. Ideal start for the Kiwis and an early setback for the Bangladeshis. Another inswinger from , this time on the money. Tamim looks to turn it through the on-side and gets beaten on the inside edge. The impact is in front of middle and that hitting the middle of leg. Bangladesh lose their review as well. Tamim lbw b 0(2)

4

to S Rahman, FOUR, straying down leg and Bangladesh get off the mark. Straying down the leg-side, all it needed was a tickle, which Rahman did. Gets it well fine of leg-gully and the ball goes past the boundary rope

4

to S Rahman, FOUR, four more! Length ball wide of off allowing the batsman to free his arms. Rahman plants his front leg across and flays it through cover-point. Good connection and earns his second boundary

W

to S Rahman, out Caught by Ronchi!! This is outstanding stuff from Tim . Perfect line and length and Rahman perishes. It's tough to face such deliveries early in the innings. KW at No.3 survived a few too. Not Sabbir though. Seam-up delivery that pitches around off on a good length. Kept angling in and moved away a tad. Rahman plays at it and all he manages is an outside nick that is gobbled by the keeper. Two early wickets and Bangladesh are already on the back foot. S Rahman c Ronchi b 8(9) [4s-2]

W

to Soumya Sarkar, out Lbw!! LBW appeal and umpire Ian Gould responds by raising the finger. No review left, so Sarkar has to just walk back to the dressing room. Very similar to the one that dismissed Tamim. Inswinger too hot to handle for Sarkar. Bowled on a short of a good length, gets beaten by pace as well as inward movement. Sarkar is trapped on the back leg in front of middle and leg. HawkEye shows it to be going over the stumps. Oh, well!! Soumya Sarkar lbw b 3(13)

4

to Rahim, FOUR, dropped! Ross Taylor is the culprit. The second slip was taken off and the first slip was moved a bit wide. Another beautiful delivery from . Short of a length delivery that straightens off the deck. Rahim has to play at it and sticks his bat out. Gets a thick outside edge. Taylor dives to his left and tries to catch it one-handed. Doesn't and the ball dribbles away into the third man fence

4

to Rahim, FOUR, good shot from the short batsman. It was banged in short, Rahim picked it and gets into a good position to pull it over the bowler's head. The outfield is slow, but not slow enough to stop it from going past the rope

W

to Rahim, out Bowled!! That's the pace of Adam . After bowling a short ball, pitches it up. Seam-up delivery on a good length that decks in. The speedometer shows 146kph. Rahim hangs back to block and plays down the wrong line. Huge gap between bat and pad allowing the ball to sneak through it. Rahim hears the death rattle and walks back with his head pointed towards the ground. Rahim b 14(34) [4s-2]

4

to Shakib, FOUR, short and wide outside off, Shakib makes good connection with this stroke. Gets on top of the bounce of the delivery and cuts it well in front of square on the off-side. Finds the gap through the cover region to collect his first boundary

4

to Mahmudullah, FOUR, where did that come from? A mighty swing and gets it off the middle of the bat. Short of a length delivery outside off, Mahmudullah stood his ground and just slogged across the line. Over mid-wicket and runs away into the fence

OT

to Shakib, 1 run, a direct hit would have been curtains for Shakib. A tap in front of mid-off and Shakib sets off for a non-existent single. KW charges in and has a shy at the bowler's end. Missed by few inches and Shakib is still there

4

to Shakib, FOUR, good shot. Pitched up delivery, minimum feet movement from Shakib. Trusts his eyes and hands to drive it wide of mid-off. KW gives a chase and slides to pull it back, but in vain

4

to Shakib, FOUR, that's been thumped from Shakib. Good confident pull in front of square. Short of length, Shakib is quick to move his weight on the back foot and cracks it to the mid-wicket boundary

4

to Shakib, FOUR, asserting himself a little bit more now. The ball is full outside off and Shakib's feet move nicely to punch it down the ground for four. Mid-off is a bit too wide to stop this

6

to Mahmudullah, SIX, they're coming for , they're coming for him. Mahmudullah runs down the track, and despite not getting close to the ball, he swings it into the square leg rafters. Monster hit

4

to Mahmudullah, FOUR, four more. Not all that well controlled, even off the top-edge, but he's found the gap. Short of length into the body, Mahmudullah tries to roll his wrists on the pull but it gets a little too big on him

4

Anderson to Mahmudullah, FOUR, pulls it in the air, and gets it fine of fine leg. He hasn't always looked convincing off the short ball, and this is a decent one from Anderson. But a boundary nonetheless

4

Anderson to Shakib, FOUR, useful boundary. Santner had built some good pressure from the other end, and Bangladesh needed a release. Short of length, Shakib is quick to pick that and he slaps the pull through mid-wicket

4

to Mahmudullah, FOUR, that's superb batting. Despite the previous ball being short, Mahmudullah's front foot is right down to the pitch of this full one and he drives it beautifully through extra-cover. Williamson got there with a dive, but it went under his left hand

OT

to Shakib, 1 run, 100 of the partnership, and fifty for Shakib. Not a bad time to come to form. It's his first half-century in England. Boy, didn't they need him today?! Back of a length just outside off, stays leg-side of the ball and chops it down to third man

OT

to Mahmudullah, 2 runs, another loud cheer as Mahmudullah brings up his fifty as well. Back of a length outside off, steers it to the right of third man. Very impressive from Mahmudullah to not get consumed by the milestone. He spots the opportunity for two and implores Shakib to get back

6

to Mahmudullah, SIX, Mahmudullah takes him on and takes six! Despite getting caught up in the wind, the ball carries a good 80-metres to the wide long-on boundary. Got right to the pitch of it before the clean swing

4

to Shakib, FOUR, that's been hammered! Expensive over from . Once again, Shakib is able to convert the ball into a full toss by running down. This time though, he holds nothing back. Powerfully driven straight back down the ground

4

to Mahmudullah, FOUR, that's lucky! This pair has just started to slack off a bit in the last 10 minutes. Need to tighten up. Short of length, Mahmudullah bat-swing is from down to up, so he has no intentions of keeping the pull down. The ball takes a thick top-edge and goes right over the keeper. One bounce and four

OT

to Shakib, 1 run, back of a length just outside off, Shakib uses the pace and runs it to third man. 150 stand up - the first time Bangladesh have done that for the fifth wicket

4

to Shakib, FOUR, he has hit the bejeezus out of the leather there. Races down the track, it's short and wide, and Shakib scythes it away with brute force through extra-cover

4

to Mahmudullah, FOUR, tossed up, Mahmudullah bends his knees and smashes it back over 's head. It was too full from . Mahmudullah punishes him

4

to Shakib, FOUR, right through Guptill at short extra-cover. Really awkward take for him as it came on the half-volley and he couldn't even get a finger. Short and wide, Shakib slaps it hard and slaps it for four

4

to Mahmudullah, FOUR, incredible, just incredible. Short of length, coming back into Mahmudullah but he uses any little room that he has to ramp it over the keeper's head. One hit away now from the hundred

OT

to Shakib, 1 run, back of a length into leg-stump, Shakib nonchalantly whips a pull to deep square. 200 of the partnership comes up. It goes on and on

4

to Shakib, FOUR, makes room, gets one right in the slot and belts it over mid-off. Bangladesh supporters going crazy in the stands

6

to Shakib, SIX, top-edged and six! Sensational hundred from Shakib Al Hasan, take a bow! Look at him, he's too tired to even celebrate. Big smile on his face. Short ball from round the wicket from , his pace takes the edge all the way

4

to Shakib, FOUR, Shakib wants to finish it off. Hasn't he timed that or what?! Absolutely rockets off his bat. Backs away, follows him to deny the room but instead, he's been smoked back straight of mid-on. Shakib didn't even swing hard, just punched it with a lot of bottom hand

4

to Shakib, FOUR, shortish outside off, another boundary. Slapped through extra-cover. Bangladesh nine away

W

to Shakib, out Bowled!! Gone. Full and straight from , Shakib wants to whack it into the leg-side but he loses his shape and the ball crashes into off and middle. What a knock though! What a knock. He's applauded on the way back by the New Zealand players. Shakib b 114(115) [4s-11 6s-1]

4

to Mahmudullah, FOUR, now a hundred from Mahmudullah. Like Shakib, he gets there with a pull shot as well. Only that he has middled this, unlike Shakib who got a thick top-edge. Short into the body, Mahmudullah pulls off the front foot to the long leg boundary. He is ecstatic. Kisses the turf. Points to his bat. It's his day. It's Bangladesh's day

4

to Mosaddek Hossain, FOUR, edged and down to the third man boundary. Bangladesh have knocked New Zealand out of the Champions Trophy

4

to Guptill, FOUR, tests if there is any swing and bowls it full. Not much of movement in the air, Guptill prods forward and middles the drive. He played it uppishly, but through the gap between point and cover. First boundary of the day

4

to Guptill, FOUR, four more and once again through the same region. Full again from , Guptill plants his front foot across and creams the square drive. All along the carpet into the fence

4

to Ronchi, FOUR, easily done. Didn't go hard against this wide delivery outside off. Just flung his bat at it and the ball flew wide of the backward point fielder. Raced away into the fence

6

to Guptill, SIX, wow! Trademark Guptill shot. He knows what's coming and walks down the track even before the ball is delivered. Then handsomely lofts it over long-off. New ball please. That went into the river Taff.

4

to Guptill, FOUR, this time off the back foot. Excellent shot. Back of a length delivery, Guptill is quick to jump back and punch it fiercely through the covers. Once it finds the gap, there is none to stop that

4

Ahmed to Ronchi, FOUR, that's all you have to do. Stay in the crease, wait for the ball and drill it through the off-side. Fullish delivery outside off, Ronchi is half-forward to cream the drive in front of square on the off-side. Nicely done

4

to Guptill, FOUR, wow! Wristy shot through cover-point. Short of a length outside off, Guptill jumps and uses his wrists to generate power. Finds the gap between cover and point to collect another boundary

W

Ahmed to Ronchi, out Caught by Mustafizur!! strikes! The extra pace does the trick. He hits the deck hard on a short of length, Ronchi wanted to hoick it over mid-wicket by clearing his front leg. Doesn't get the required timing and the ball lobs up off the splice of the bat towards mid-on, where Mustafizur snares it with ease. Ronchi c Mustafizur b Ahmed 16(18) [4s-2]

4

to Williamson, FOUR, there's width and this guy will punish you everytime. Short as well to make matters worse. Williamson goes back in his crease and guides it wide of backward point. Didn't go too hard, relied on timing to collect his first boundary

4

Ahmed to Williamson, FOUR, that's Williamson! "He is so easy on the eye," says Ian Bishop on air. Fullish ball, not overpitched, Williamson shuffles across a tad and caresses the drive to the left of mid-off. It came off the sweet spot of the bat

4

to Williamson, FOUR, overpitched delivery on leg and Williamson latches onto it. Leans forward and clips it expertly to the right of mid-on. the fielder gives a chase, but only to come second

W

to Guptill, out Lbw!! After a lengthy chat with his skipper, Guptill decides not to review. is pumped up, why not! Guptill is beaten by pace here. It was a short of length delivery that kept coming in cramping the batsman up for room. Guptill is caught at the crease and is beaten on the inside edge. Gets hit just above the knee-roll adjacent to middle stump. Ian Gould raises the dreaded finger. Might have been umpire's call had he reviewed it. Guptill lbw b 33(35) [4s-4 6s-1]

4

Ahmed to Ross Taylor, FOUR, that's a gift and Taylor accepts with both hands. Full toss on middle and leg, Taylor prods forward and offers a straight bat to send it down the ground. No chance for mid-on to stop that

4

Ahmed to Ross Taylor, FOUR, four more and even bettter. Of course, he was served with a half-volley. Still had to be put away. Moves slightly off-side and middles the straight drive. Gets it just wide of the wickets at the non-striker's end and collects his second boundary

4

to Ross Taylor, FOUR, huge shout for lbw, turned down. It came off the face of the bat. Not sure why went up. Fetched from outside off, did Taylor and swept it fine. Dribbles away into the fine leg fence

4

to Williamson, FOUR, glorious shot. Fullish ball outside off, Williamson moves off-side and creams the cover drive. With mid-off up, he had to get it wide of him, which he did. Through the gap of mid-off and extra cover and the ball bulleted away

4

to Williamson, FOUR, an overcooked cutter. Nothing on this surface that could cause any troubles after that though. There could be no punishment as eye-pleasing as this one. A vertical batted stroke - as straight as it could get

OT

to Williamson, 1 run, almost replicates his dismissal the other night against England. Credit the surface. Kicking up venomously off an indentation on length and the desperate splice just about comes up in time..to fortunately take it through gully and point. What's more - it's yet another half-century. Who's keeping count anymore

4

to Ross Taylor, FOUR, short. A sitter. The angry flat bat comes out in admonishing it to the fence. With a swivel to impart direction as he forehands it through mid-wicket..all the way too

OT

to Ross Taylor, no run, the arm ball, down leg and the sweep comes off the boot to the man at 45 - Sarkar there. A direct hit and Taylor was struggling to get back, despite the full length dive. Alas

4

to Ross Taylor, FOUR, gets away. Gets something against the violent bat swing. Piles on the down leg flighter with a broom, off one hand almost as he gets it very fine

W

to Ross Taylor, out Williamson Run Out!! The horror. Of dot balls piling up. And it causes the calmest of minds to run across like madmen. Taylor with his couple of steps down, forces Williamson to respond and he puts his head down without bothering to refuse the single - even when the fielder did not have to move an inch for the ball to get to him. All after a tickle to 45 behind square on the on-side and a flat throw at the bowler's end follows. Nothing the swivel around and run back from Williamson could do to keep him out there. Williamson run out (Mosaddek Hossain/) 57(69) [4s-5]

4

to Neil Broom, FOUR, off and running. In a show of elegance. Plonks the front leg right to the pitch of the friendly half volley and executes one heck of a straight drive . Had to go all the way

4

to Neil Broom, FOUR, the late chop. Not much of width in the first place, but enough for some angry wrists to wait on it and slash it through the cordon

OT

Ahmed to Ross Taylor, 1 run, 133kph, waits for the wide line to get to him. Chops it off the inside half down to third man. Takes him to a landmark - a fifty

4

Ahmed to Neil Broom, FOUR, a warm up. Ends up bowling a heap of nothing - a short-wide combo. For Broom to get things going with a ferocious cut. Whacked into the point fence

4

Ahmed to Ross Taylor, FOUR, now the sledge hammer. Wants the sucker ball does Ahmed hoping to catch Taylor waiting on the back foot after the proceeding a ball earlier. Gets a drilling down the ground

W

Ahmed to Ross Taylor, out Caught by Mustafizur!! Chips his way to his doom. The lack of timing comes back to haunt him. Gets well across, sits down, looks for a version of a scoop. Just that this one was the slower cutter. Miscued, big time, for short fine leg to bag a sitter to his name. Taylor shows his cards and changes his - to end up with the aces. Another failure to close things off by a Kiwi bat. Ross Taylor c Mustafizur b Ahmed 63(82) [4s-6]

4

to Neesham, FOUR, first runs. In cheeky fashion. Jabs his bat out at the width in the hope of running it down. Manages the outside half, unintentionally to take it a lot finer. Who's complaining

4

to Neesham, FOUR, go, fetch. Takes the short pepper head on. This time the eyes stalk the ball all the way as he stands up tall in a whack in front of square. Off a horizontal swish

4

to Neesham, FOUR, the obvious follow up. Full, enticing the drive and gets that. Neesham giving the impression of toying around with the mind waits for the ball to get down and appears to be in no hurry as he eases one past the bowler. To his right

W

Hossain to Neil Broom, out Caught by Tamim!! The wild card plays itself out. Brought into the side, brought on in the slog and redeems the faith. with his under-cutters flights one on off, Broom in looking to take the aggressive route decides to tonk one into the river. Gallops out, gets too close for comfort but doesn't believe in holding himself back as he slices it off the outside toe-end to backward point. Neil Broom c Tamim b Hossain 36(40) [4s-3]

W

Hossain to Corey Anderson, out Lbw!! Dead pan. First up. And Anderson gives himself out. Doesn't bother looking at his partner, puts his head down and walks off. Only to be called back by his partner and forced into taking a review. Why not. Okay here we go on the review - yeah, Anderson and his struggles against spin continue. Just that this time it is the lack of it. Going straight on with the arm, staying low and under the attempted defence to pin him bang in front of middle. HawkEye is kind enough to show it to be hitting leg. Looked plumber. Corey Anderson lbw b Hossain 0(1)

W

Hossain to Neesham, out Stumped!! On a jump down, on the aimless jump down and has to jump his way into the dressing room. , ever so smartly spots and digs in the slider half way down the ground. And it does slide, it does scoot as well. Under the ambitious swing and for the keeper to do the rest. The Kiwis falling apart in the final assault. Neesham st Rahim b Hossain 23(24) [4s-3]

W

to Milne, out Bowled!! Slower, slower and full throttle. In an anticipation of another slower wide yorker that messes around with the bat, Milne decides to walk across and gets one that trickles under his defence, under his legs and inside-edges it onto the base of his stumps. Making a real mess of it in the process. Fizz helps himself to his first wicket of the tourney. Milne b 7(8)

4

to Southee, FOUR, finally. A boundary after 37 balls. The death batting gets something to show for all the bat swinging we've seen. Southee after another shuffle, waits, reads the off-cutter and glances it away. Fine enough to avoid square leg inside the circle

4

to Southee, FOUR, spoils his over. Spoils the momentum. A waist high full toss, slipping out of the hands for Southee to redeem some of the missed runs. Never ideal with fine leg inside the ring. With a swishy pull to get it past him. So, the Kiwis scrap to 265
