New Zealand won the toss and elected to bat. However, debutant spinner Nasum Ahmed was able to give a big push to the Kiwi batting lineup from the beginning. Opener Finn Allen returned with zero runs. The last one wicket to get 1 run on the scoreboard.Thank you for reading this post, don't forget to subscribe!
Martin Guptill and Devon Conway then put on a 52-run stand. Martin Guptill was dismissed for 35 off 26 balls. He hit 2 sixes with 3 boundaries.
Then two young Devons Conway and debutant Will Young put together a 105-run stand. Will Young left with 53 runs for the loss of 156 runs. He made a half-century in his debut.
Glenn Philip took the field by storm at the last minute. He made 24 runs off 10 balls. He hit 1 six with 3 boundaries.
Again that Devon Conway. He made a similar appearance in the T20 after the ODI series. Although he could not score a century this time, he has come very close, and based on his stormy batting, the host New Zealand has set a huge target of 211 runs in front of Bangladesh.
6 wickets were lost before the end of 6 overs (7.5 overs). In other words, the best 6 batsmen on the team ended before two quarters. How far can Bangladesh go with the remaining 4 wickets? The spectators and supporters of Bangladesh started counting the mistakes.
But the fight between two young Afif Hossain Dhruvo and Saifuddin took Bangladesh to the end of the match. The duo formed a pair of 63 runs. Which helps Bangladesh to cross 100.
And the Tigers were able to play the full 20 overs. Total wickets lost 8. Didn’t have to use two batsmen. The rate gap has narrowed. Finally, New Zealand won by 66 runs.
