Black Caps make hard work of victory

Boult celebrates catching Sri Lanka’s Thisaras Perera. ICC Cricket World Cup- New Zealand v Sri Lanka- Cardiff Wales Stadium Cardiff Britain Bangladesh vs New Zealand - Highlights & Stats
Shannon Reynolds | 08 June, 2019, 08:38

The players that have been the core of their team for a decade and more are all now in their 30s - Tamim Iqbal is 30, Mushfiqur Rahim is 31, Shakib-al-Hasan is 32, Mahmudullah is 33, Mashrafe Mortaza is 35.

Bangladesh was bowled out for 244 inside 50 overs, put in on a fresh pitch which was slower than expected.

He said: "Mushi, I don't think we need to go after him, because it could happen to anybody because he was also trying hard to get him".

'The turning point was that run out I think because they both got set.

"He wants to pick the ball and suddenly it hits his elbow".

Had the New Zealand bowlers not done such a fine restricting job, Bangladesh would likely have completed a superb fightback.

Santner and Henry got off the mark with singles and combined for 20 runs in less than three overs. Henry was bowled for 6 with New Zealand needing seven to win.

Lockie Ferguson (4 not out) and Santner hit a boundary each to seal the win.

"You've got to give credit to Bangladesh".

"I always do love batting with Kane, and he's great to be batting with, but we had a bit of luck".

Twitter was in splits after Mushfiqur Rahim's hilarious 'keeping blunder and they roasted the Bangladeshi cricketer for his "over-confidence".

White meat may be as bad as red meat for cholesterol
But eating lots of saturated fat was associated with higher concentrations of the "fluffier" large LDL particles. It's also possible that there are other factors about red meat that can affect cardiovascular health, he said.

New Zealand improved to 5-0 against Bangladesh at the World Cup, batting second each time.

New Zealand was cruising in its chase, after a dramatic start. Mithun scored 26 runs and the Sarkar scored 25 runs.

Williamson (40) and Ross Taylor took advantage to guide their side to 160-2, only to slip to 191-5 once Taylor departed for 82. "He is going to be a key factor for us if we're going to feature in this tournament", said Taylor. "I was in by one centimeter and Jim by half a centimeter. I don't really look too much into it".

"At the end it was a tight match".

Latham fell for nought and when Taylor was caught down the leg-side New Zealand nerves were jangling. Shakib top scored with 64.

But a few edges that evaded fielders, two wides from Saifuddin after he bowled Henry and Santner's sublime winning cover drive were enough for New Zealand to squeak home. Ferguson, Grandhem and Santander took one wicket each.

Bangladesh's innings turned on Mushfiqur's run out. But the sense of satisfaction of watching a match where run-scoring is neither too easy nor too tough over a period of 100 overs even in this day and age is special.

Shakib broke out when he saw off medium-pacer Neesham with three consecutive boundaries. Shakib could take some of the blame for calling the run then changing his mind when he saw Martin Guptill swoop on the ball. Mushfiqur wasn't happy to be stranded by his partner. He nearly ran out Tamim Iqbal in the 12th over, and himself in the 22nd. What further didn't work in Williamson's favour was a brilliant throw at this end.

Next it's qualifiers Afghanistan at Taunton on Sunday (12.30am NZT), another game they should win ahead of the really serious business against India next week.

Bangladesh will take on England in their next game on June 8 at the Sophia Gardens, Cardiff.
