Bangladesh restrict Kiwis to 173 allout

Left arm spinner Suhrawadi Shuvo delivered a magical spell to help Bangladesh dislodge the New Zealand side for a meager score of 173 allout in the third ODI at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur.

Shuvo got three important scalps and was very economical for the home side. He got the important scalp of Jesse Ryder who was looking very dangerous batting at the top of the order. He followed up with two more wickets to inflict more problems for the Black Caps who lost track completely, losing wickets at regular intervals. He ended up with three wickets and gave away just 14 runs in his quota of 10 overs.

However, middle order batsman Ross Taylor(62*) scored a valiant half century to give some respectability to the Kiwis batting and help them cross 150 run mark.
With good support from Kyle Mills(26) down the order, the Kiwis managed to come out from a possible collapse. The duo added 72 runs for the eighth wicket.
Taylor struck three boundaries and four sixes.

New Zealand were struggling at 101 for the fall of seven wickets when Mills joined Taylor at the middle.

Skipper Shakib Al Hasan chipped in with two wickets for the home side.

Taylor ran out of partners eventually as Mills was dismissed by Hasan. Then Mahmudullah got the tailenders Tim Southee and AJ McKay of two successive deliveries to wrap up the New Zealand innings.

Bangladesh are currently leading the series 1-0.
