Bangladesh are in tatters as Shakib Al Hasan and Sabbir Rahman have fallen in very quick succession, leaving them at 38/4 after 8.5 overs. Mahmadulah is the next to follow. Bangladesh, who are chasing 146, were dealt with huge blow as Tamim Iqbal was run out by Colin Munro in the second over before Mohammad Mithun was removed  by Mitchell McClenaghan for 11. Tamim, who has been in a very fine nick, ran towards the danger end, as Mohammad Mithun hit a shot towards backward point. Munro sensed the opportunity and took aim, and Tamim was well short. Tamim was removed for mere 3 runs as Bangladesh struggled for runs, scoring just 4 runs after 2 overs. Since then, Sabbir Rahman and Mithun steadid the ship, taking their time and adjusting to the nature of the pitch. But their partnership was broken as McClenaghan bowled Mithun, with score at 29/2 after 5.4 overs.  FULL SCORECARD: New Zealand vs Bangladesh, 28th T20 Match, Super 10 Group 2
