Clinical NZ thrash Bangladesh by 75 runs

By The Assam Tribune

KOLKATA, March 26: New Zealand produced another clinical performance to record a crushing 75-run victory over Bangladesh in their final group game and entered the semifinals of the ICC World Twenty20 as table toppers, here today.

New Zealand�s win meant Bangladesh pacer Mustafizur Rahman�s five-for went in vain at the iconic Eden Gardens.

The left-arm pacer grabbed a career best 5/22, bowling some unplayable cutters, but New Zealand still managed a competitive 145 for eight in the stipulated 20 overs. However, Bangladesh soon faced the ignominy of being bowled out for their lowest ever total, ending their innings at 70 in 15.4 overs. This was New Zealand�s fourth straight win in the event, ensuring they remained unbeaten in the Super 10 stage.

Bangladesh batsmen put up a horror show after opener Tamim Iqbal (3) was brilliantly by Colin Munro in the second over. Their previous lowest of 78 all out, incidentally, was against the same team in Hamilton.

Ish Sodhi (3/21) and Elliott (3/12) dented Bangladesh�s chase as their batsmen showed complete lack of application. The match was further delayed for 15 minutes because of power failure in one of the four floodlight towers. Bangladesh will, thus, return home winless from the sixth edition of the mega event.

Earlier, Mustafizur dismissed openers Henry Nicholls (7) and Kane Williamson (42) and was deadly with his variation. He returned to bowl at the death and completed a fine five-four with two wickets in successive balls.
