Shakib, Mahmudullah stun New Zealand in Cardiff

“It is nice to score runs but if my hundred helps win Bangladesh a game it is a special feeling”

However, a record stand of 224 between Shakib Al Hasan (114) and Mahmudullah (102 not out) saw the Tigers complete a stunning win with 16 balls remaining. He then released the shackles with an aggressive approach and by the time Trent Boult dismissed him for 114 the contest was over.

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 (3/) had rocked their run chase.

With two points from their two matches, Australia now have to beat England to be certain of a place in the semi-finals of a tournament featuring the world's top eight one-day intentional teams.

Bangladesh moved up to second in the standings and will qualify for the semi-finals if Group A leaders England beat third-placed Australia on Saturday.

New Zealand's innings at Sophia Gardens was built around half-centuries to in- form captain Kane Williamson, 57 and Ross Taylor, 63 but they failed to accelerate sufficiently over the closing stages.

Off-spinner Mosaddek Hossain justified his recall with three for 13 in three overs while placeman Taskin Ahmed, also brought back for this match, took two for 43 in eight overs.

Kane Williamson has said that New Zealand not reaching 300 was a big blow to their hopes.

Williamson, who made 100 and 87 against England and Australia respectively, needlessly ran himself out when he set off for a non-existent single after Taylor turned Shakib to Mosaddek at short fine leg.

But, as happened in their no-result washout with Australia and defeat by England, the Blackcaps' innings collapsed once the experienced batsmen were out in quick succession.

CT lawmakers approve deal to allow third tribal casino
The bill would allow CT to prepare for on-line sports better if federal restrictions are lifted by Congress, she said. The bill creates an entertainment sharing agreement between the CT tribes and entertainment venues across the state.

Bangladesh's bowlers got on top of New Zealand though, with just three boundaries coming in the last seven overs.

Mahmudullah and Shakib targeted Neesham, alternating between attack and well-timed running to force New Zealand to rethink, and they were unable to stop Bangladesh's steady accumulation.

Where will New Zealand Vs Bangladesh Champions Trophy match be played? It was Rubel Hossain who removed the unsafe Martin Guptill for 33 off 35 balls, after trapping him in front with good bowling with one that nipped back off the seam with pace.

"But after the start we had with the ball we thought 265 was going to be enough".

Live coverage of the Group B clash between New Zealand and Bangladesh continues on Sky Sports 2. Neil Broom (36) and Jimmy Neesham (23) got starts before Mossadek Hossain's cameo bowling of three overs produced the wickets of Broom, Neesham and Corey Anderson for a golden duck.

Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza is not anxious about the semis spot but looks to the future with hope after his team's stunning win against New Zealand in Champions Trophy on Friday.

"Hats off to Shakib and Mahmudullah, they batted simply superbly".

"We were just batting and just wanted to be positive".
