2017 ICC Champions Trophy in England & Wales Match 09 Group A New Zealand Vs Bangladesh @Sophia Gardens,Cardiff Friday June 09,2017

New Zealand and Bangladesh enter their final group match of the on Friday

 New Zealand are, quite surprisingly, at the bottom of Group A with Bangladesh in the third position. Both teams have a point apiece after they were each comprehensively defeated by England, while their respective matches with Australia ended in rain-induced no results.

Hosts England have signalled their title intentions by cruising into the last-four stage following two convincing outings.
If Australia beat England in their last group match at Edgbatson, both the two teams will be in the semifinals as they enjoy better net run-rate.

The desperation for a win aside, both New Zealand and Bangladesh would hope for an England victory against Australia, assuming rain does not disturb their calculations again


New Zealand: Kane Williamson (captain), Corey Anderson, Trent Boult, Neil Broom, Colin de Grandhomme, Martin Guptill, Tom Latham, Mitchell McClenaghan, Adam Milne, James Neesham, Jeetan Patel, Luke Ronchi, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor.
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.

Match Result - Bangladesh won by 5 wickets
MOM - Shakib al Hasan(Bangladesh) for his 114(115 Balls 4x11 and 6x1)
Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmudullah smashed a brilliant century each and stitched a record 224-run stand together as Bangladesh recovered from a top-order collapse to notch up a stunning five-wicket win over New Zealand in their last group match of the on Friday June 09,2017
Chasing a target of 266 for a win, Bangladesh were reduced to a precarious 33 for 4 in the 12th over but Shakib (114) and Mahmudullah (102 not out) turned the match on its head with a remarkable batting display to help their side notch up their first win of the tournament.
The duo batted brilliantly for 34.5 overs for the fifth wicket and orchestrated a sensational comeback for Bangladesh after a devastating three-over three-wicket opening spell from Tim Southee had rocked their run chase.
Bangladesh eventually chased down the target with 16 balls to spare, reaching 268 for 5, to fashion one of the most memorable victories in their ODI history

The 224-run stand between Shakib and Mahmudullah was the highest for Bangladesh for any wicket in ODIs, eclipsing the earlier 178 between Tamim Iqbal and Mushfiqur Rahim against Pakistan in 2015.
Shakib, who hit his seventh ton in his 176th match, struck 11 fours and a six from 115 balls while Mahmudullah, who got his third ton in his 144th game, had eight fours and two sixes from 107 deliveries in his unbeaten knock.
With the loss, New Zealand are out of the tournament, after finishing at the bottom of Group A with just one point which they got after their match against Australia was washed out. They had lost to England by 87 runs.
Despite the win, Bangladesh - who now have three points from three matches - are still uncertain of a semifinal berth and they will have to wait the outcome of the Group A match between England and Australia in Birmingham on Saturday. If Australia beat England tomorrow, Bangladesh will not qualify for the semifinals. In that case, both England and Australia will advance to the last four. Bangladesh will qualify for the semifinals if England beat Australia.
