In the 18th over, there were two misunderstandings in three balls. Tim Southee gave the ball in the air twice. But the New Zealand pacer survived twice because he could not decide who would take the catch. Shariful Islam could not control his anger and cursed.
Apart from that, Bangladesh got everything possible in the first innings in the first T20 of the series in Napier today. New Zealand’s top order collapsed at the start, no pair could settle in the middle order. New Zealand managed to score 134 runs for 9 wickets despite playing full 20 overs.
Bangladesh need to score 135 runs to taste their first T20 win on New Zealand soil.
