    Clinical show by the Blackcaps despite missing plenty of first-team players. Devon Conway and debutant Will Young set the right tone in their batting innings and it was capped off by some insane hitting at the death by Devon and Glenn Phillips. A total in excess of 200 was always going to be difficult to overhaul and the Kiwi bowlers did the job exceedingly well. Stay tuned for the presentation…

    It anyway was a stiff target to chase for the Bangla Tigers and it became next to impossible after they lost 4 wickets in the Powerplay. Their flavourless batting show on this tour continued and had Afif Hossain and Mohammad Saifuddin not combined for a partnership, the defeat margin would have been even bigger.

    Bangladesh have been beaten black and blue here in the first T20I! Everyone expected the Kiwi pacers to do the damage but as it turned out, Ish Sodhi, the leg spinner, blew away Bangladesh’s top order. Once again Ish was in top gear, picking up his second 4-wicket haul in two months and it was strange to see a team from the subcontinent struggle against a leggie.

    19.6 Daryl Mitchell to Mohammad Saifuddin, FOUR, EDGY FOUR! A boundary to wrap up this game. On a good length and close to off, Mohammad Saifuddin swings his willow at this and the ball takes the outside edge, goes over point and into the ropes, on a couple of bounces. NEW ZEALAND WIN BY 66 RUNS!

    18.6 Hamish Bennett to Nasum Ahmed, no run, Around off, on a length, worked to the short third man uppishly, but it lands ahead of the man there. 6 balls left, can New Zealand bowl out Bangladesh?

  • 9:49 AM IST

    18.5 Hamish Bennett to Mohammad Saifuddin, 1 run, A low full toss on middle, slogged away to deep mid-wicket for a single. Wanted two but would have been way too risky.

    18.1 Hamish Bennett to Shoriful Islam, out, OUT! CAUGHT! A STUNNER! What a catch and this is a beauty from Guppy. He followed the ball all the way and put in a full length dive to take this catch, on this 100th T20I game for him. A length ball, around off, Shoriful Islam slices this one over the point region, where Martin Guptill runs behind, keeps his eyes on the ball and dives to take a stunning catch. 

  • 9:45 AM IST

    Hamish Bennett is back to operate. 0/19 in his 3 overs.

  • 9:44 AM IST

    Player review for a caught behind! Tim Southee takes the DRS and it turns out to be one of the worst ever. Daylight between bat and ball.

  • 9:39 AM IST

    17.2 Tim Southee to Shoriful Islam, no run, NOT OUT! An optimistic review but it yields nothing for the Blackcaps. On a good length and around off, Islam looks to play at this one through the off side but misses and the ball goes to the keeper, Conway, who takes it nicely. An appeal for caught behind, but the umpire is unmoved. Tim wants the review and so, he takes it upstairs. A big gap between ball and bat and the Ultra Edge confirms the same. 

  • 9:39 AM IST

The ball crashes into the leg pole and Bangladesh lose their 7th here. 89 needed in 20 balls. 

  • 9:34 AM IST

    16.3 Lockie Ferguson to Afif Hossain, FOUR, FOUR! Terrific shot and this was almost a six. On a good length, around off, Afif Hossain stands his ground and lofts this one with a straight bat over the mid off region for a boundary.
