50 overs Bangladesh 288/ 7 (Mahmudullah 128 *, Soumya 51) vs New Zealand 289/ 7
Mahmudullah hit a second successive cent cancelled half turn and sewing threat of New Zealand in Hamilton. Bangladesh's 288 for 7 are the highest score and the first time a side has batted 50 overs against the co hosts of the World Cup so far.
Chasing Seddon Park is not the most intimidating task but this was the first time that the men of Brendon McCullum appeared too rocked for a long period of time. Although New Zealand attacked from the moment they chose to field, Mahmudullah countered by putting together partnerships sustained. He added 90 and 78 runs with Soumya Sarkar and Sabbir Rahman for the third and sixth wickets and two short in the middle with Shakib al Hasan who led Bangladesh instead of the injured MashrafeMortaza and Mushfiqur Rahim.
Mahmudullah became the second Bangladesh batsman Shahriar Nafees after to hit two centuries in a row ODI. This however was faster than his 103 against England in Adelaide. Although it began with a rate of unemployment in the mid 1970s, reached his hundred off 112 balls and continued to accelerate rapidly. Its three six came by way of a swept from Daniel Vettori and Slogs over square leg and midwicket off Mitchell McClenaghan and Grant Eliott.
He prefers the side of the field for his four legs getting seven of his 12 through third man specific regions and cover back. The five on the side of the leg went all through midwicket but your time and adapt to the situation of Party stressed. Mahmudullah allowed that all paddles to your around but dominated all the Bangladesh innings with great success the minute that were needed. The best of the area were the three consecutive fours hit immediately after completing his century cutting third last man crashing through covers and the fountain through square leg making New Zealand look a little idea for the first time in four weeks.
But they began with a considerable threat Trent Boult and Tim Southee being the major suppliers. They hoped the ball at will and good rhythm against Imrul Kayesand Tamim Iqbal who could not find a career anywhere. The Bangladesh pair had not seen this poison bowling attack for a long time but survival was key. McCullum who said at the draw that he wanted to take advantage of a pitch which was under covers for more than 24 hours remained four slips and a gully of their two opening for much of the first 10 overs bowlers.
Boult kept hitting a length of middle and stump that was difficult to not play. Removed Imrul with a magnificent drop ball began to descend on the batsman's leg stump threw in the middle and uprooted the off stump. He was asking too much for Imrul that did well for the Association's first portillo to 5.4 last credits the longer second against New Zealand in the group stage.
Tamim survived one that is curled inches past his off stump and a yorker Southee immersion. A border did not slip into the room again but Tamim began to drive better doing a little bit of space. He took the first limit of entries a clip of Boult pads eighth more but was dismissed in the 18th nicking Corey Anderson to slide by 13 of27.
Mahmudullah arrived at the crease with two nearby receivers on the side in and had a first opportunity to ball. But Martin Guptill who had to dive to his left from short leg just got his fingers to it. Two balls later, Mahmudullah flashed outside off and the balloon came by Anderson at second slip and the batsman gave their first boundary. There not was looking back from that point.
Southee was withdrawn after six over’s while the first spell of Boult lasted seven the last four by pushing your personal account to 36 despite the first three over’s are maidens. In an attempt to fight back, Mahmudullah and Soumya slapped the first 10limits of their association in 28 balls.
