New Zealand beat Bangladesh by 8 wickets

Hagley Oval, Christchurch

That is it from this game. New Zealand are underway in the triangular series. The action continues as New Zealand will face Pakistan on 11th October. The match will start at 7.30 am IST (2 am GMT). Do join us early for the coverage. Till then, cheers!
Kane Williamson, the captain of New Zealand says Bangladesh played nicely in the Powerplay but they pulled it well back with the spin. Adds there are many things to take into account while bowling the spinners but all three bowled well. On Ish Sodhi, he is amazing and aggressive and has won a lot of matches, hope there are plenty more to come. Shares that it was unusual to see caches going down but hopes to get better. On Adam Milne going off the field, Kane replies that there are few niggles going on, the schedule is tight going into the World Cup but they need to be smart with the players.
Shakib Al Hasan, the skipper of Bangladesh says the Kiwis bowled really well. Adds they never got the momentum, the batters tried to go for big shots but holed out. Shares that it is not happening for them but they will keep improving. Tells there were spinners bowling in the middle phase so that is why he came down the order. Reckons the bowlers have been good and the fielders have been backing really well. Says the next two games will be crucial and hopes to build some momentum
Michael Bracewell is the Player of the Match. He says their bowlers have the experience and it is challenging sometimes in the nets but exciting as well. Adds they have a good group of spinners and he is picking brains from all of them. Applauds Ish Sodhi's performance. Reckons he tries to contribute with the bat as well, he will do whatever the team asks for.
...Presentation coming up...
Earlier, New Zealand did well after choosing to bowl first. They kept Bangladesh under control throughout the innings. All the bowlers had a great day. In reply, it was a convincing performance with the bat by New Zealand.
Bangladesh were good in the first 6 overs or so but in the middle overs, their spinners weren't as effective as they would have wanted them to be. However, the bowlers just did not have enough to play with. On this wicket, 137 is really difficult to defend.
A comfortable win for the Kiwis. 138 was always under par and the Kiwis have chased it down quite easily. They went about it quite sensibly. Devon Conway was the mainstay and the rest batted around him. They needed one good partnership and it came, it was between Kane Williamson and Conway and that partnership more or less sealed the deal for them.

Bangladesh will hope to get Shakib Al Hasan back in the XI as his all-round brilliance and experience was missed in the first match. New Zealand on the other hand could bring in Martin Guptill back at the top order.

We are all set. The players are out in the middle. Devon Conway and Finn Allen to open for New Zealand. Taskin Ahmed to start with the ball.
...THE CHASE...
Right then! A low score and New Zealand have the line up to chase this down. Should be an easy chase. Stay tuned.
Ish Sodhi is up for a quick chat. He says he is happy to get his 100th T20I wicket. Adds they were ready to go out and perform. Reckons he has been working hard in the winter and also the other players. Admits the players have trained hard and there wasn't any lack of effort in the field.
This was a much better performance from the host than the one against Pakistan! The seamers were tight at the start and the spinners controlled the middle phase. It was Michael Bracewell and Ish Sodhi who completely turned the tide as before that Bangladesh were looking good however the spinners came in and started picking up wickets. A brilliant bowling performance and New Zealand will fancy a win here. They will be a little upset about their fielding as they dropped numerous catches and even missed some run out chances.
It was a poor batting performance from Bangladesh. They had a good start but once the openers fell, none of the upcoming batters stayed for a long time. Everyone struggled to hit the middle of the bat. They were given lifelines but didn't make the most out of it. Shakib Al Hasan came in very late in the innings but didn't make a huge impact. It was Nurul Hasan's late cameo that Bangladesh have gone past 120-mark.
A handy came from Nurul Hasan and due to him, Bangladesh have reached a decent total. Still, not a big one and New Zealand will feel confident to chase this down.

We are all set for the action. The two umpires are out in the middle and are followed by the Kiwi players. Najmul Hossain Shanto and Mehidy Hasan to open for Bangladesh. As usual, Trent Boult to start with the ball. All set. Let's play...
Bangladesh (Playing XI) - Shakib Al Hasan (C) (In for Sabbir Rahman), Mehidy Hasan, Afif Hossain, Mosaddek Hossain, Litton Das, Yasir Ali, Nurul Hasan (WK), Taskin Ahmed, Hasan Mahmud, Shoriful Islam (In for Mustafizur Rahman), Najmul Hossain Shanto (In for Nasum Ahmed).
New Zealand (Playing XI) - Devon Conway (WK), Finn Allen, Kane Williamson (C), Glenn Phillips, Mark Chapman, James Neesham, Michael Bracewell, Adam Milne (In for Blair Tickner), Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee, Trent Boult.
TOSS - New Zealand have won the toss and they will BOWL first!
Bangladesh will hope to get Shakib Al Hasan back in the XI as his all-round brilliance and experience was missed in the first match. New Zealand on the other hand could bring in Martin Guptill back at the top order.
