Kiwis ready to counter Afghan spin, says Taylor

Kiwis ready to counter Afghan spin, says Taylor

Virat Kohli cheekily pointed to England captain Eoin Morgan and had said if anyone was going to, it would be the hosts. "They are certainly getting better as each day goes by, which is great", he said.

The left-arm spinner, who missed most of 2018 with a serious knee injury, was playing domestic cricket four years ago when the Black Caps lost their first World Cup final to co-hosts Australia. "I don't really look too much into it". "We needed a set batsman in the middle overs, but in the end it got tight and if you want to win matches you need to get wickets", he added.

Shakib, the third Bangladeshi to reach 200 ODIs, removed openers Martin Guptill (25) and Colin Munro (24), and should have had Williamson run out while he was bowling.

Ross Taylor and Matt Henry star as New Zealand overcome Bangladesh in a close finish at World Cup 2019.

Earlier, the Kiwis bowled Bangladesh out for 244, before chasing the target successfully in 47.1 overs. And with the kind of depth and firepower the New Zealand batting has, the debate in the social media was how soon they can warp up the contest. When in reality, the celebration was for a bouncer bowled by Shaifuddin to Lockie Ferguson that was declared a wide by the umpire.

Mashrafe said that falling 30 runs short of their desired total was a bigger problem on the day.

Ross Taylor tried to take a single after hitting Shakib Al Hasan to Tamim Iqbal at mid-on but when Tamim threw the ball back to Mushfiqur, Williamson was struggling to make his ground.

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

Real Madrid Announce Eden Hazard Signing
Real Madrid finished third in the Spanish league and was eliminated early in the Champions League and the Copa del Rey. Hazard sealed his dream move on Friday, signing a five-year deal at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu .

But Henry made the breakthrough for New Zealand, bowling Sarkar in the ninth over.

Earlier, Matt Henry grabbed four wickets as New Zealand bowled Bangladesh out for 244.

The game took another huge swing when De Grandhomme's attempt to upper cut Saifuddin saw him caught behind and five balls later Jimmy Neesham (25) picked out long-off to give Mosaddek his second wicket.

"Obviously, very lucky with that one", said Taylor.

New Zealand was cruising in its chase, after a dramatic start. As the clock ticks away for the all-important match, we bring you a list of mini-battles that we entertain you during the match more.

Santner was modest about his performance with the bat against Bangladesh, joking that hitting the winning runs "could have been worse".

Fast-improving side Bangladesh underlined their potential with a fine 21-run victory at The Oval over the Proteas who came into this World Cup as a low-key side always failing to match hype. Irrespective, match No 9 of this World Cup will be remembered at the end of it for the fact that, in the era of 400-400 matches, a 250-250 game still has a charm that is unmatched in ODI cricket.
