New Zealand beat Bangladesh by 2 wickets in World Cup 2019

New Zealand beat Bangladesh by 2 wickets in World Cup 2019

But Williamson chipped a rare attacking shot to mid-wicket before wicketkeeper Tom Latham fell for a duck, dropping his head even before Mehedi Hasan took a fine diving catch at deep mid-wicket.

Ross Taylor tried to take a single after hitting Shakib Al Hasan to Tamim Iqbal at mid-on but when Tamim threw the ball back to Mushfiqur, Williamson was struggling to make his ground.

While Taylor got the gong, Santner earned at least one MVP point as one of the key contributors wearing black. The outfield was slow and I think we lost too many wickets after people getting set and getting out.

"I thought we were cruising there for a while... we were going to get that two or three down".

A sigh of relief and pump of the fist and Mitchell Santner has the win for New Zealand with a cover drive for four. The short ball worked for New Zealand at times but it was a quality effort from a nicely balanced attack.

New Zealand started their chase confidently as Martin Guptill made a breezy 25 and Colin Munro 24 to move them rapidly on to 55-2.

Mohammad Mithun (26), Mahmudullah (20) and Mohammad Saifuddin (29) all made useful contributions but Henry took two wickets in two balls to polish off the Bangladesh innings, restricting them to 244 all out in 49.2 overs.

As for Lopez Obrador's handling of the dispute, she said: "It is by talking that people reach understanding". In 2018, automakers sold 17.3 million new vehicles in the United States.

When Matt Henry was eighth man out, New Zealand still needed seven runs for victory but Mitchell Santner stayed calm to secure their second win of the tournament with 17 balls to spare.

Victory takes New Zealand to the top of the table as the only team so far to win both their matches.

Chasing just 245, Taylor continued his exquisite form in 50-over cricket, which has seen him score 12 half-centuries in his last 22 innings, as he anchored the Black Caps' innings with 82 off 91 balls.

"We were definitely very nervous in the end; full credit to Bangladesh, they put pressure on us and it could have gone either way".

So a game between underdogs who aren't really underdogs and dark horses who aren't really dark horses. "We still knew that 250 could be quite challenging", Williamson said. There were a few soft dismissals that we'd want to address.
