New Zealand’s unbeaten streak continued as they secured an eight-wicket victory over Bangladesh, successfully chasing down 246 runs in Chennai with Daryl Mitchell’s unbeaten 89.
New Zealand secured an 8-wicket victory against Bangladesh in their Chennai clash on October 13th, maintaining their unbeaten run. New Zealand successfully chased down the 246-run target, reaching 248/2 in 42.5 overs, largely credited to Daryl Mitchell’s unbeaten 89 off 67 balls.
Kane Williamson, returning to ODI cricket after injury, showed his prowess with a 78-run knock off 107 balls. After an early dismissal, the focus was on Williamson, who not only achieved a half-century but also formed a strong partnership with Mitchell. Unfortunately, he sustained an injury to his left thumb, forcing him to retire and raising concerns for the Kiwis.
Bangladesh initially posted a target of 246 runs, thanks to Mushfiqur Rahim’s resilient half-century, contributing 66 runs off 75 balls. Shakib Al Hasan added 40 runs, while Mahmudullah’s unbeaten 41 gave their innings a strong finish.
Lockie Ferguson claimed a three-wicket haul for New Zealand, with Trent Boult and Matt Henry each taking two wickets. This win continues New Zealand’s impressive run in the tournament.
