Match Summary

Bangladesh 141/6 (20 ov)

New Zealand 137/5 (20 ov)

Bangladesh won by 4 runs.


Mahmudullah, Man of the Match and Bangladesh Captain: I think in T20 games you have close finishes. Happy that we came across with a win that is what matters. Mustafizur held his nerve quite well and we went close because of that no-ball but he delivered well. The wicket was much better today. I think I have always believed that we are very good as a team in this format. We need to back our skills and we are happy to continue the streak. 

Tom Latham, New Zealand Captain: It was a great game and to take it down to the last over for us is about trying to learn and we did well with the bat. I think we bowled well up top. A better surface makes for a better game and that was the case. The spinners did a good job and it is about executing our skills. 130-140 was a competitive score and we gave ourselves a chance in that last over. Partnerships work slightly different. My role was to try and bat through. You are going to lose wickets but I am really proud of the guys the way we managed to turn it around from that first game.
