Bangladesh's biggest partnerships, second-biggest ever in Champions Trophy

Bangladesh's biggest partnerships, second-biggest ever in Champions Trophy

Both Bangladesh and New Zealand had to win this Group A match to stand a chance of going through to the semi-finals, although a victory for Australia against England at Edgbaston on Saturday (today) would see them join the already-qualified tournament hosts in the last four. For the umpteenth time, Shakib confirmed his status as the premier allrounder in world cricket with an nearly run-a-ball 114; Mahmudullah finished not too far behind, hitting 102 not out off 107 - he brought up his third ODI ton with a hook off Trent Boult.

The pair put on 224, rescuing their run chase after Black Caps seamer Tim Southee 3-45 knocked over the top order.

· These sides are both sat on one point in the 2017 Champions Trophy; even a win in this fixture won't necessarily guarantee safe passage through to the semi-final stage (Australia will qualify with a victory over England).

Bangladesh skipper Mashrafe Mortaza was visibly pleased with his team's thumping victory against New Zealand in their last group match of the ICC Champions Trophy at Cardiff yesterday (June 9).

New Zealand were well set while captain Kane Williamson (57) and Ross Taylor (63) were sharing a stand of 83 - their third fifty partnership in as many matches this tournament.

Recalled bowlers Mosaddek (three for 13 in three overs) and Taskin Ahmed (two for 43 in eight) did the bulk of the damage. As fun as a big, close run chase can be, nothing can beat the intensity of a low-scoring match where the bowlers are constantly in the game.

The Kiwis barely saw out their 50 overs, as they lost six wickets for only 64 runs in nearly 12 overs at the end after winning the toss and choosing to bat first.

Trent Boult (1-48) had lamented a struggle to find swing at the tournament in the build-up but his bowling partner Southee caused Bangladesh significant problems, accounting for the in-form Tamim Iqbal for a second-ball duck.

The victor would have to wait on the outcome of Saturday's clash between England and Australia to determine whether a semi-final spot had been secured. Two weeks ago, they beat New Zealand in Dublin in the tri-series with Ireland. Martin Guptill and Luke Ronchi got them off to a quick start, before Williamson and Taylor took over.

"We have also been batting in positions side-by-side, so we had a lot of opportunities to build partnerships".

Struggling at 4-33, New Zealand's 265 seemed a long way off, but the record- setting partnership carried Bangladesh to 5-268 with 16 balls to spare.

Mosaddek's off-spin was introduced only in the 42nd over, but his changes of pace and clever bowling meant all of Neil Broom, Neesham and Corey Anderson fell to him. Apart from Mosaddek, Taskin Ahmed (2/43) bowled well for Bangladesh.

There was a brief lull after the equation was down to 70 off the last 10 overs, but Shakib and Mahmudullah opened up again with cuts, chips, full-blooded drives and an upper-cut to bring the asking rate down to below a run a ball. It's just a matter where it delivered on the day and we managed to make the most of it in that first 10 overs.
