Bangladesh record maiden T20I win over NZ

0 67

In the absence of regular players, the visitors struggled from the first delivery as Bangladesh went on to record a thumping seven-wicket win.

It was quite the turnaround for the hosts, who had lost all the limited-overs fixtures against the Blackcaps in March this year.

The turning track in Mirpur was a spinner’s paradise as they accounted for half of New Zealand’s side and were effective in crippling them at the start with the seamers cleaning up the tail.

The visitors folded for 60 – their joint-lowest total in men’s T20Is, following a similar collapse against Sri Lanka in the 2014 T20 World Cup.

Chief scores

New Zealand: 60 in 16.5 overs (Nasum Ahmed 2/5, Shakib Al Hasan 2/10, Mustafizur Rahman 3/13, Mohammad Saifuddin 2/7)

Bangladesh: 62/3 in 15 overs (Shakib Al Hasan 25). (ICC)
