    Well, that’s all we have for you tonight, folks. This one had all the ingredient of a thrilling finish. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we enjoyed bringing the action to you. Until next time then, it’s goodnight!

    Kane Williamson (3/3): “Both teams had a similar kind of a approach today. It was one of those surfaces that produces great cricket. The guys on the sidelines who have a couple of niggles are improving, while the guys on the park are doing their job as well.”

    Kane Williamson (2/3): “There were a few soft dismissals that we need to address. It was a great experience to have and these things happen and they go down the wire. It was nice to hold on as momentum shifts tend to happen in tournament cricket. I thought all the guys adopted to their role very well. We were expecting a lot more pace but it was on the slower side.”

  • 2:08 AM IST

    Here’s the winning captain Kane Williamson: (1/3) “Very nice to get across the line, I thought the first innings was outstanding. The fielding was brilliant throughout by both teams. We thought 250 could be a competitive score and we just needed to keep wickets in the hand. It wasn’t a clinical effort with the bat, but it was nice to get over the line.”

    Mashrafe Mortaza (3/3): “We tried hard, but that can happen and the next one is a big match and hopefully we can step up in that. We have to take one game at a time, couldn’t manage today but we will try to be at our best in the next game.”

  • 2:05 AM IST

    Mashrafe Mortaza (2/3): “We needed a set batsmen in the middle overs, but in the end it got tight and if you want to win matches you need to get wickets. We did it very professionally in the end.”

  • 2:04 AM IST

    Time for the captains to speak, first up, Mashrafe Mortaza: (1/3) “It was a good wicket. We were 20-30 short with the bat and the outfield was slow. It was the same wicket that we played the last game. We lost too many wickets in the middle overs and couldn’t get any big partnership.”

  • 1:57 AM IST

    Ross Taylor: (3/3) “We need to work on our running between the wickets, there were a couple of close calls there. I do enjoy batting with Kane and hopefully we run well between the wickets against Afghanistan.”

  • 1:57 AM IST

    Ross Taylor: (2/3) “We thought 270-280 was a good score on this wicket but the bowlers kept it tight. It was nice to get over the line at the end of the day.”

  • 1:56 AM IST

    Ross Taylor: (1/3) “I was very nervous in the end. But gotta give the credit to Bangladesh and their supporters who came out in numbers. They put a lot of pressure on us and this could have gone either way.”

  • 1:55 AM IST

    As expected Ross Taylor has won the Man of the Match award for his fine 82.

Hello and welcome to our live coverage of Match 9 of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 will be played between Bangladesh and New Zealand at the Kennington Oval, London on Wednesday.

Bangladesh created the first upset of the ICC World Cup 2019 when they triumphed against a beleaguered South Africa side by 21 runs. This time, the Tigers will look to Shakib Al Hasan, who sets foot in his 200th one-day international as his side chase a second successive World Cup win against New Zealand at the Kennington Oval in London on Wednesday.

Shakib was the key man when Bangladesh upset South Africa on Sunday. His composed 75 helped steer Bangladesh to their highest one-day international total of 330 for six before the spinner took 1/50 to restrict South Africa to 309/8.

That wicket made Shakib only the fifth player behind Sri Lanka‘s Sanath Jayasuriya, South African Jacques Kallis, and Pakistan pair Shahid Afridi and Abdul Razzaq to reach the landmark of 5,000 runs and 250 wickets in ODIs.
