New Zealand U19 vs Bangladesh U19 (NZ vs BAN) U19 World Cup 2020 Highlights: Bangladesh beat New Zealand by 6 wickets in the second semifinal on Thursday to book a place in the final on Sunday vs defending champions India. New Zealand and Bangladesh were locking horns in the second semi-final match of ICC Under 19 Cricket World Cup today at the Senwes Park in Potchefstroom. New Zealand had scored 211/8 in their 50 overs, batting first. Bangladesh made early inroads with regular wickets, and New Zealand were struggling to get their innings going in the initial stages after being sent in to bat first. A 67-run partnership between Nicholas Lidstone and Beckham Wheeler-Greenall (75*) rescued the innings somewhat. Beckham Wheeler-Greenall carried on from there, guiding his team to a fighting total with a strong finish.

In response, Mahmudul Hasan Joy scored a sensational ton to guide Bangladesh home. His 100 off 127 balls included 13 fours. Bangladesh eventually chased down the target with 35 deliveries still remaining in the contest.

India sealed the final berth with a commanding ten-wicket win over Pakistan U19s in the first Super-League semi-final.

20:41 (IST)06 Feb 2020
Shahadat in a hurry

Shahadat Hossain hits two fours in the 44th over. And that does it! Well, almost. Scores are level at the end of the 44th over. Shahadat moves to 40. Bangladesh 211/4 after 44 overs

20:40 (IST)06 Feb 2020
And he's out

Mahmudul departs for 100. Caught and bowled. He's done whatever was required for his team, but Mahmudul will not be around when the winning runs are hit. BAN 201/4 

20:37 (IST)06 Feb 2020
100 for Mahmudul

Mahmudul Hasan gets to his century with a four. The second century in an U19 World Cup semi this year. Yashasvi Jaiswal had scored one in India's victory. Bangladesh are fast approaching booking their place in the final on the back of Mahmudu;'s ton. 100 runs comes up for this partnership as well. It has been a long time since New Zealand had anything to smile about in this match. BAN 201/3 after 43 overs. Need 11 more runs to win.

20:29 (IST)06 Feb 2020
18 needed off 54 balls

Bangladesh are finishing this match off without much sweat. Five singles in the 41st over. Mahmudul moves to 95. Shahadat moves to 30. BAN 194/3 after 41 overs

20:26 (IST)06 Feb 2020
23 needed in 10 overs

This is as good as over as a contest now. Mahmudul nears his century. A hundred in a World Cup semifinal. Yashasvi Jaiswal scored one in the first semi, Mahmjudul looks set for another today. Mahmudul on 93. BAN 189/3 after 40 overs

20:21 (IST)06 Feb 2020
Shahadat gets into the act

Shahadat Hossain, who had been content to play the role of the quieter batsman for so long, gets into his stride in the 39th over. Two fours from him. Bangladesh inch closer to the win and their first ever World Cup final. BAN 185/3 after 39 overs. Need 27 more to win.

20:16 (IST)06 Feb 2020
Ban need 37 runs off 72 balls

Mahmudul Hasan moves to 90. He again plays out the Adithya Ashok over with some caution. But there's a boundary for him in the very next over. Mahmudul and Shahadat have now added 75 runs for this wicket. These partnerships have taken the game away from New Zealand. BAN 175/3 after 38 overs

19:59 (IST)06 Feb 2020
Mahmudul Hasan Joy hits fours for joy

Mahmudul Hasan Joy is hitting fours for joy now. Two fours for him in the over after drinks and Bangladesh are looking to do this in a canter now. 150 comes up for them. Mahmudul moves to 72. BAN 151/3 after 34 overs.

19:53 (IST)06 Feb 2020
BAN need 71 runs in 17 overs

2 runs come off that over. But New Zealand's failure to find the wicket of Mahmudul and frequency of wickets in general means that Bangladesh are heading into the final part of theis chase with the upper hand.

19:49 (IST)06 Feb 2020
Beckham into the attack

Beckham, wjho was the hero for New Zealand with the bat in the first innings, is brought on the bowl for the first time. New Zealand need to find another breakthrough here. Mahmudul is threatening to take the game away from them. Could Beckham provide the inspiration New Zealand need with the ball in hand as well?

19:48 (IST)06 Feb 2020
BAN need 73 runs off 18 overs

Mahmudul follows up the four in the previous over with another in the next one as well. He looks to take control of this chase now. That was his 7th four of the day and that sees him move into his 60s. BAN 139/3 after 32 overs

19:43 (IST)06 Feb 2020
50 for Mahmudul

Mahmudul gets to 50 and celebrates by smashing Joey Fild over his head for a four. Could the landmark give his innings some added impetus? Shahadat playing patiently at the other end, taking the singles whenever they present themselves. Bangladesh keep the runs coming. BAN 133/3 after 30.5 overs

19:36 (IST)06 Feb 2020
91 runs needed in 21 overs

Joey Field is brought back ino the attack after a discussion within the New Zealand players. Mahmudul, nearing his 50, would be the man they would be targetting at this stage. Mahmudul and Shahadat content with finding runs in singles at the moment. They are at a better position than New Zealand were at this stage, but they do need to have wickets in hand. The first innings had a flourish at the end, powered by Beckham. BAN 121/3 after 29 overs

19:27 (IST)06 Feb 2020
Mahmudul being circumspect

Mahmudul plays out another over from Aditya Ashok without offering too much. He moves into the 40s. Runs have dried up a bit after Hridoy's wicket. All to play for in the last 23 overs though. Bangladesh want to head into the last part of this match with wickets in hand. We could be building up for a thrilling finish. BAN 112/3 after 27 overs

19:18 (IST)06 Feb 2020
BAN 107/3 after 25 overs

A little more watchful approach by Mahmudul after Hridoy's wicket. Hridoy lost his wicket in coming down the track to the spinner. Adithya Ashok's turn did the trick there and the batsmen do not want to fall to his tricks again. BAN 107/3 after 25 overs

At the halfway stage, Bangladesh and New Zealand could stake equal claim to this match. Really depends on the partnerships Bangladesh can build from this stage onwards. Bangladesh need 105 runs in the next 25 overs, with 7 wickets in hand.

19:12 (IST)06 Feb 2020

Breakthrough! Stumped! Hridoy is out. Adithya Ashok gets the wicket for New Zealand. And what a much needed wicket. Could this spell a look in for New Zealand? This pair had added 68 runs between them, and in good time as well. Shahadat Hossain joins Mahmudul in the middle. BAN 101/3 after 22.3 overs

19:07 (IST)06 Feb 2020
100 up

100 comes up for Bangladesh in the 22nd over. It is Mahmudul's turn to free his arms a bit now. He moves into his 30s. Both batsmen looking in fine touch. BAN 100/2 after 22 overs

19:00 (IST)06 Feb 2020
BAN 90/2 after 20 overs

New Zealand are starting to ruin out of ideas to save their World Cup campaign from ending today. Hridoy has started to hit a few more shots now. He gets to 40. Mahmudul also batting patiently on 27 at the other end. BAN 90/2 after 20 overs

18:55 (IST)06 Feb 2020
Bangladesh making it look easy

This partnership between Mahmudul and Hridoy is taking the game away from the Kiwis. This stand worth 48 runs already. And they have played together for less than 10 overs. A priceless partnership in the context of the match. BAN 80/2 after 18 overs
