Bangladesh vs New Zealand highlights: New Zealand win by two wickets.

Bangladesh vs New Zealand highlights: Despite Ross Taylor playing a fine inning of 82 runs, New Zealand had to work hard for their two-wicket win against Bangladesh in their second fixture at The Oval on Wednesday. Chasing a moderate target of 245, the Kiwis got off to a decent start as the opening pair of Martin Guptill and Colin Munro added 35 runs for the first wicket. However, a 110-run stand in the middle overs between skipper Kane Williamson and Taylor set the platform for the Kiwi chase, before the side started losing wickets in quick intervals. Despite a late collapse, New Zealand managed to complete the chase with 17 balls to spare.

Earlier in the day, Shakib Al Hasan scored a half-century to help Bangladesh post 244 in the board. Matt Henry was the standout among the Kiwi as he picked 4 wickets while giving away 47 runs in the 9.2 overs he bowled.

Bangladesh back in business

Mushfiqur Rahim is the man at the moment. The wicketkeeper leaps and takes an excellent one-handed catch to send Colin de Grandhomme back to the pavilion.

An uppish delivery pitched outside off by Mashrafe Mortaza and Colin de Grandhomme pushes it towards extra cover to complete a single. With this, the Kiwis also reach the 200-run mark.

A huge appeal by Mushfiqur Rahim and after a slight delay the umpire raises his finger. Mosaddek Hossain gets the huge wicket of Ross Taylor who departs after scoring 82 off 91 balls. The ball was going down the leg side and Taylor tries to flick it. However, he gets a faint edge and the wicketkeeper takes a sharp catch to give Bangladesh some hope to produce a late fightback.

Just in time!

Ross Taylor tries to steal a quick single but we have something here as substitute fielder Sabbir Rahman executes a brilliant fielding display.

2 wickets in 1 over

2 wickets in one over! First, he has Kane Williamson holing out to the fielder in the deep, and four balls later, he sends back the new man Tom Latham too! Is there a twist here yet?

Bangladesh belive!

NZ- 162/4 in 32 ovs, still need 83 runs

23:55 (IST)05 Jun 2019
Fifty for Ross Taylor

Ross Taylor hits his eighth half-century against Bangladesh in just 40 deliveries. He is looking for boundaries, looking to end the match with few overs remaining. He has been lucky today as the zing bails did not go off early on in the innings. NZ - 138/2 in 25 overs

23:48 (IST)05 Jun 2019
Game slipping away

Every run added in the third wicket partnership will dim Bangladesh's hopes of winning the match. New Zealand are cruising towards the target. NZ - 123/2 in 23 overs

23:40 (IST)05 Jun 2019
FIZZ back into attack

In search of a wicket, Mortaza has brought Mustafizur Rahman back into the attack. Both Taylor and Williamson are good players of spin. If their partnership goes for 10-15 more overs, the match will be out of Bangladesh's hands. Just two runs from the over. NZ - 112/2 in 21 overs

23:32 (IST)05 Jun 2019

Williamson-Taylor take control

The veterans have taken control of run chase. They are knocking the ball around for singles, not trying to do anything extravagant like Munro and Guptill. Taylor has played an effortless inning so far hitting boundaries and scoring more than run-a-ball as the Kiwi skipper anchors the innings from the other end. NZ - 90/2 in 17 overs

23:05 (IST)05 Jun 2019
Mushfiqur Rahim gifts Kane Williasom with a lifeline

What a waste by the experienced Mushfiqur Rahim as he misses out on an easy run-out opportunity. Kane Williamson was no way near the crease and the ball was hitting the stumps, but the wicketkeeper decides to collect it on the bounce. However, in the process, Rahim removes the bails before the run-out could be executed and gifts a lifeline to the Kiwi skipper. It would now be interesting to see, how much will this cost the Asian side? 

22:49 (IST)05 Jun 2019
Munro departs

WICKET! Shakib gets another. Munro hits it straight to the mid-wicket fielder Mehidy Hasan. Bangladesh have pulled things back since Guptill's wicket. The spinners have not allowed easy singles leading to pressure mounting on the batsmen. NZ - 55/2 in 10 overs

22:43 (IST)05 Jun 2019
50 up for New Zealand

The flow of runs has slowed down in the previous two overs. Williamson is taking his time to get used to the conditions. NZ - 51/0 in 8 overs
