Quick Updates : Tigers Vs Kiwis ODI #2

Its a clean sweep for Kiwis in the ODIs. The Tigers are just not able to pounce on any team at the moment. Kiwis won the toss and chose to field. Bangers got off to a disastrous start scoring 46 /6 after 23 overs. Phew! that's quite a start with a run rate of just 2/ over. Then Naeem Islam and Mushfiqur Rahim (Centurion in the tests against India) chipped in with a useful partnership of 101 runs and they steadied the ship to some extent. Naeem scored 43(81) and Mushfiqur scored a well complied 86(107) and late cameo by Shahadat 16(7) took Bangladesh to 183 which seemed impossible after 25 overs. Butler ended up with 3/43 in his 10 overs and surprisingly Dan the Man went wicketless.In reply to 183, NZ got off to a steady start. They never lost control over the game . McCullum departed early. Ingram and Guptill were slowly ticking away. The main highlight of the match was 'Rosco', who blew away the opposition with a swashbuckling innings of 78(52) with 6 4's and 5 6's. Needless to say he was the Man Of the Match.
