Champions Trophy: Kiwis, Bangladesh face off in must-win encounter

Australia's Adam Zampa performed well against Bangladesh

Bangladesh have kept their hopes of qualifying for the semi-finals in the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy alive after they defeated New Zealand by five wickets at Sophia Gardens in Cardiff on Friday.

Taylor hit an unhurried 63 off 82 balls, including six fours, before his mistimed ramp shot cost him at 201-4 in the 39th over.

268 for 5 in 47.2 overs (Shakib Al Hasan 114, Mahmudullah 102 not out; Tim Southee 3/45). Adam Milne picked up just one wicket in the innings.

Both teams needed to win this match to maintain their hopes of reaching the semi-finals of a tournament featuring the world's top eight one-day global nations.

They will qualify for the semi-finals if England beat Australia on Saturday. Overall, this was the 10th win for Bangladesh against New Zealand, their most against top-eight teams.

New Zealand were unchanged from the side that lost to England by 87 runs at Cardiff on Tuesday.

The ball has barely swung throughout the tournament but Southee exploited the movement on a two-paced pitch to rip through Bangladesh's top order.

The two sides have just a point apiece in the eight-team marquee tournament after they slumped to a comprehensive defeat by England, while their respective matches against two-time victor Australia were abandoned.

Bangladesh: Mashrafe Mortaza (captain), Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Tamim Iqbal Mohammad Mahmudullah, Sabbir Rahman, Rubel Hossain, Soumya Sarkar, Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman, Imrul Kayes, Mehedi Hasan, Mosaddek Hossain, Sunzamul Islam and Shafiul Islam.




New Zealand will be left to rue a third successive batting collapse which stopped them posting a truly competitive total.

"They have players like Martin Guptill who can change the game".

The start of play in the Welsh capital was put back an hour to 1030 GMT due to a wet outfield after heavy rain on Thursday.

"It wasn't just the fact that Bangladesh defeated New Zealand by five wickets, but the manner and the circumstances under which victory was achieved, that made it truly special".

Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza is not anxious about the semis spot but looks to the future with hope after his team's stunning win against New Zealand in Champions Trophy on Friday.

Victory in Cardiff may not be enough for either Bangladesh or New Zealand to reach the knockout stage of a tournament featuring the world's top eight one-day worldwide sides.

From Bangladesh, Mosaddek Hossain was the pick of the bowlers with 3 wickets.

Earlier, a good bowling display from Bangladesh restricted the Kiwis to 265-8 in their 50 overs. However, Shakib and Mahmudullah held their nerves to washout Kiwis' hopes of qualifying to semifinals with an astounding 224-run fifth wicket partnership.

Mossadek then removed New Zealand's next three batsmen, striking twice in the 44th over when Neil Broom (36) sliced to backward point and Corey Anderson was plumb lbw for a duck. We just need to tell each other 'Just keep going, just keep batting.' I know what he can do and he knows what I can do.
