Allrounder Shakib Al Hasan made his 200th ODI special smashing a valiant 64 off 68 balls, but Bangladesh failed to use the platform and were bowled out for 244 in 49.2 overs in Match 9 of the ICC World Cup 2019 against New Zealand at the Oval on Wednesday. Paceman Matt Henry grabbed four wickets. He finished with figures of 4/47 to follow his three wickets against Sri Lanka as Bangladesh — sent in to bat — lost their last six wickets for just 65 runs.

Shakib was caught by wicketkeeper Tom Latham off the bowling of Colin de Grandhomme to leave his side on 151 for four in the 31st over.

Openers Tamim Iqbal, who made 24, and Soumya Sarkar, who scored 25, gave Bangladesh a solid base, putting on 45 runs for the first wicket. But Henry made the breakthrough for New Zealand, bowling Sarkar in the ninth over.

That brought Shakib to the crease, much to the appreciation of a large contingent of Bangladeshi supporters. But Iqbal was out shortly afterwards, caught by Trent Boult off the bowling of Lockie Ferguson, to leave Bangladesh 60/2.

Mushfiqur Rahim rebuilt the innings with Shakib, putting on exactly 50 for the third wicket before he was run out for 19.

Mohammad Mitun (26), Mahmudullah (20) and Mosadeek Hossain (11) all failed to build a significant innings. Tailender Mohammad Saifuddin hit a 23-ball 29 with a six and three boundaries before Henry and Trent Boult (2-44) mopped up the tail.

Both New Zealand and Bangladesh won their first matches at the World Cup, taking place in England and Wales. New Zealand crushed Sri Lanka by ten wickets at Cardiff while Bangladesh beat South Africa.
