Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

Time for the presentation:

Guptill: There was a lot of flow and rhythm in that one. Time spent in the middle in Napier helped me.

Mashrafe: Yea, it was a tough day. We lost early wickets, our partnerships were 30-odd, they could have been 60 and the match might have been different. Our top order has to step up little bit, Mithun has been scoring well, Mustafizur bowled well today. Not too many positives coming out from these matches. We have to play as a group, we scored 220-230 but we need to score 270-280 then we can fight it out

Williamson: It was a really good performance; the guys are coming out and playing their roles. There was a little bit there for us with the overcast conditions and we did well to pick regular wickets. We learnt some harsh lessons against India as individuals. We’ve seen Nice performances in the last two matches, especially from Guptill in terms of taking the momentum from the previous game. Scoring back-t-back hundreds is freakish. It was nice to spend some time in the middle and I wanted to play straight and I wanted to assist his freedom.

Just to confirm: Williamson has been rested for the third ODI, Colin Munro will play in his place. Tom Latham will captain the side in that match in Dunedin. That’s it from the second ODI then, from me, Vishal Dikshit, and Varun Shetty. Isam’s report will be up soon and there’s more action left in the day so do plan you Saturday accordingly: the SA-SL Test and PSL later on. Until then, goodbye and good luck!

5.57pm Taylor and Williamson come together to punch their gloves and then go on to shake hands with the Bangladesh team. Another comprehensive win for the hosts against Bangladesh, in very similar fashion as the first ODI. Bangladesh’s batting is looking out of sorts against the accurate swing and pace bowling, their lower order (mainly Mithun) has saved them to cross a respectable 200 both times otherwise their batting hasn’t clicked at all. And even while defending low totals, their bowling seems to lack that penetration or the threat a pace attack needs, especially in these conditions, to try and prepare for the World Cup. Bangladesh and New Zealand won’t be playing more ODIs after this series until the global tournament in the summer. Not having Shakib for this series can’t be the only reason for such a performance.

New Zealand will be feeling more confident about Guptill after the series loss against India. Guptill has two centuries in as many games and they must still be wondering whether Munro should open with him at the World Cup or Nicholls. Their lower order still hasn’t been tested but having both Neesham and de Grandhomme in the squad bodes well for them.

36.1 4 Mehidy Hasan Miraz to Williamson low full toss outside off and he’s caressed it into the covers boundary to make it 2-0 for New Zealand. The final delivery of the match sumps up Bangladesh’s performance in the series FOUR

Th field comes up

End of Over No.34 New Zealand 216/2 Last Over (4 runs)

Jez: “These two squashings haven’t really helped sort out New Zealand’s selection conundrums, the middle and lower order batting hasn’t been tested at all. Will we see wholesale changes in game three? Will NZ look to bat first no matter what?”

33.6 0 Sabbir Rahman to Williamson goes deep in the crease again and this time cuts it straight to backward point no run
33.5 0 Sabbir Rahman to Williamson goes back in the crease and punches it to cover no run
33.4 1 Sabbir Rahman to Taylor goes on the back foot and whips the ball to midwicket, the fielder gets hand but they get a single 1 run
33.3 1 Sabbir Rahman to Williamson little short and pushed down to long-on again 1 run
33.2 1 Sabbir Rahman to Taylor turning away and he swipes his bat for a single to sweeper cover 1 run
33.1 1 Sabbir Rahman to Williamson flighted full toss on middle, pushed down gently to long-on 1 run

Just 15 more for New Zealand to make it 2-0

TW: “NZ need to stick with Nicholls, Munro has been given more than a fair chance and has proven ordinary at best against quality attacks, if the slog sweep fails there is not much else in his arsenal..”

End of Over No.33 New Zealand 212/2 Last Over (8 runs)

32.6 0 Mustafizur Rahman to Taylor he goes on his toes on the back foot to bunt the short ball to point no run

Over the wicket for the final ball

Matt: “This might be a good confidence booster for the blackcaps, but it’s India they’ll have to beat to win a world cup and the top order never looked good against their accuracy and pace.”

32.5 4 Mustafizur Rahman to Taylor edged and just over the keeper! Short and angling in from well outside off, Taylor went hard at it with a horizontal bat and got a thick outside edge that went flying over a jumping Mushfiqur Rahim FOUR
32.4 0 Mustafizur Rahman to Taylor pretty full outside off, but he defends it down the ground no run
32.3 0 Mustafizur Rahman to Taylor just short of length around off, he defends off the back foot no run
32.2 2 Mustafizur Rahman to Taylor not much room outside off but he taps it towards the covers with soft hands for a quick single. An overthrow from the cover fielder means they turn around quickly for the second 2 runs
32.2 1 Mustafizur Rahman to Taylor bangs a short ball down the leg side, that’s a wide 1 wide
32.1 1 Mustafizur Rahman to Williamson hint of width on off, taps it down to third man for one 1 run

Mustafizur continues from around the wicket

End of Over No.32 New Zealand 204/2 Last Over (4 runs)

Aamir: “@Venu IPL is a different ball game altogether!”
