NZ restrict Bangladesh to 257

Mahmudullah and Mushfiqur were rebuilding the innings but with the loss of Tiger keeper for 55, Bangladesh are in trouble now.

With Shakib and Soumya departed in quick succession, Bangladesh attack back with the batting duo.

Shakib departed for only eight while Sabbir for one.

Sabbir played a straight ball of Santner on back foot and got bowled.

Tamim Iqbal departed for 23 adding a 72-run opening stand with Soumya Sarkar.

The Bangladesh opener chased a wide of off-stump ball and cut it towards the cover boundary. Munro didn’t have to move as it goes right down his throat.

New Zealand have won the toss and sent Bangladesh to bat first in their 2nd match in the tri-nation series.

After the first match against Ireland was suspended due to rain, this is a very important one for Bangladesh to win the tournament.

Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza returned to the XI, after missing their opening game against Ireland due to an over-rate suspension, for Taskin Ahmed.
