New Zealand confirmed as Group 2 winners

And they have won it at a canter, completing their round-robin stage with a comprehensive 75-run victory over Bangladesh. Even dodgy floodlights couldn't stop them.

Can anyone else? England may be their first to have a crack if they beat Sri Lanka in Delhi today and, potentially, go though in second position in Group 1. 

We don't have to wait long to find out with the match in Delhi due to start at 14:00 GMT. Stephan Shemilt will be along to bring you our live text and in-play highlights coverage in about 10 minutes.

Sussex excited by the signing Mustafizur

Great to see our @NatWestT20Blast signing take 5-22 today in the World T20 #sharkstogether #sussexfamily #GOSBTS

Great to see our @NatWestT20Blast signing take 5-22 today in the World T20 #sharkstogether #sussexfamily #GOSBTS

More from Kiwi skipper Kane Williamson: "Every game is tough and in the fickle nature of T20 cricket it is sometimes hard to work out but we are going to keep improving as a team and see how far we can get."

New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson: "We've done a lot of travel but the boys have been great. The bowling was very clinical again."

New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson on Bangladesh's Mustafizur Rahman: "Brilliant, especially on these wickets, I thought he bowled very smartly and deserved his five-for."

Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza: "If the total we chased was 10 or 15 runs shorter then maybe the batter's mindset would have been different. We can take positives out of this, like Mustafizur Rahman (who took 5-22).

"His cutter is very difficult. Our batters struggle in the nets against them. Hopefully he'll give 10 more years for Bangladesh and it will be a different story.

"New Zealand have always been tough and it's no surprise to see them in the semis."

Are New Zealand going to win the whole thing? Let us know your thoughts...

Abu Ali: The India result was devastating. But sad to see the Bangladesh team just fade today. At least try to go out with a win!

Pete Naylor: Honestly think New Zealand will win the World T20 this year. Superbly balanced side...

John Michael Poole: New Zealand have got this World Cup in the bag. They are better than India in Indian conditions. Madness. 

New Zealand win by 75 runs

Man of the match Kane Williamson (who scored 42): "It was a pretty tough surface. It spun a bit and kept low. Batting in the front six overs was nice, then it got tougher.

"It was a good batting effort all round. We put partnerships together and some guys played little cameos.

"Going into each game we look to read the wicket and opposition as best we can. It's worked so far."

New Zealand win by 75 runs

Grant Elliott (3-12 from 4 overs) and Ish Sodhi (3-21 from 3.4 overs) picked up six of the wickets between them. Bangladesh only managed five boundaries and three of them came in the fifth over. They were never in that chase.

New Zealand are confirmed as winners of Group 2. If England beat Sri Lanka later they are likely to be their opponents in the last four.

WICKET - New Zealand win by 75 runs

Al-Amin b Sodhi 0 (Bang 70 all out)

Another Ish Sodhi googly puts Bangladesh out of their misery as Al-Amin Hossain is the latest to completely miss the wrong 'un. Four wins out of four for New Zealand completes a seriously impressive group stage for the Kiwis.

WICKET

Mustafizur c Ronchi b Elliott 6 (Bang 65-9)

No doubt about this one. Mustafizur, who bowled so brilliantly to claim 5-22 earlier, launches the first six of the innings but then gets an inside edge into the gloves of Luke Ronchi. Bangladesh's lowest ever T20 score is 78 - also against New Zealand. They're threatening to beat it here. Elliott finishes with 3-12.

WICKET

Mashrafe lbw Elliott 3 (Bang 59-8)

Grant Elliott traps Mashrafe but he's lucky with this one. His knuckle ball was sliding down leg. Not that it matters to the overall outcome.

Bang 58-7 (need 146 to win)

Shuvagata has had enough and advances to Sodhi - a faint inside edge enough to take it away from wicketkeeper Luke Ronchi. 

Bang 50-7 (need 146 to win)

Grant Elliott concedes just the two from his third over and has figures of 1-5 after three overs. Mashrafe Mortaza in now. New Zealand look comfortably the best team in this tournament so far. 

WICKET

Mahmudullah b Sodhi 5 (Bang 48-7)

Mohammad Mahmudullah is almost done for by an Ish Sodhi googly but manages to escape... not so lucky the next time he faces though. Straight through the gate and on to the top of off stump. A procession.

And we have light!

Bang 45-6

We're back under way... Ish Sodhi to bowl after an 11-minute delay.

Floodlight failure

Bang 45-6 (need 146 to win)

Hurrah! The emergency generator has kicked in and we now have full light in Kolkata. The players are back out and a resumption is imminent.

There are some bulbs shining on that floodlight tower now but not yet all of them... 

Australia women beat Ireland women

Adam Mountford

BBC Test Match Special producer in Delhi

So Australia win by seven wickets with 40 balls to spare.

They will definitely be through if New Zealand beat South Africa tonight and would play their semi-final here in Delhi on Wednesday.

If that is the case then Australia will start as favourites whoever they play after two games already in the Delhi conditions while other sides have been travelling across India. 

The most likely semi-final will be against England who can seal their group with victory over Pakistan in Chennai tomorrow.

Floodlight failure

Bang 45-6 (need 146 to win)

Apart from rain, this appeared the only way to halt the New Zealand momentum as they have run through the Bangladeshis. It's been a superb bowling performance from the Kiwis with the six wickets falling to five different bowlers (plus the run out of Tamim). Only Corey Anderson has missed out so far. 

Floodlight failure

Bang 45-6

The players are going off...

Elyse Villani out for a really well made 43, but Australia closing in on victory with bags of overs left. Ellyse Perry 24 not out at the other end and looking in good touch. 

Australia 87-3 from 13 overs

Floodlight failure

Bang 45-6

The lights were going out on Bangladesh and now they've gone out altogether on one of the floodlight towers at Eden Gardens... play halted as we search for a spark.

WICKET

Mushfiqur b Elliott 0 (Bang 44-6)

Just a beautiful leg-cutter from Grant Elliott to completely bamboozle Mushfiqur Rahim who only lasts two balls. Even Elliott seemed to be a stunned by that and didn't realise initially he had bowled his man. That ball moved 28cm off the seam. Would have cleaned up many batsmen. 

WICKET

Soumya st Ronchi b Sodhi 6 (Bang 43-5)

Leg-spin now from Ish Sodhi and Soumya Sarkar is gone, advancing down the track, missing with a heave to leg and Luke Ronchi cleans up with the batsman out of his ground. New Zealand heading for a 100% record in the group stages, as are Bangladesh in a different way...

Mel Jones

Former Australia batter

"Nathan McCullum doing all the right things with a wonderful economy rate."

Bang 39-4

Still 107 required with 11 overs left. Not looking good for Bangladesh... Mohammad Mahmudullah the latest to have a go.

New Zealand celebrate

WICKET

Sabbir c Santner b McCullum 12 (Bang 38-4)

Oh dear. Sabbir was their big hope but now he's perished as Nathan McCullum comes back on and the batsman lofts to Mitchell Santner as the bowler-catcher combination is reversed from the previous over. Good, tumbling catch from Santner.

Bang 34-3 (need 146 to win)

Can Soumya Sarkar get any momentum into this chase? Caution initially as three are added from Santner's over.

WICKET

Shakib c McCullum b Santner 2 (Bang 31-3)

Three back in the hatch already as Shakib heaves to the leg side from outside off but picks out Nathan McCullum on the fence. Mitchell Santner has his first wicket and Bangladesh have a lot of work to do. The Kiwis seem to be in their element here.

Bang 31-2

Elliott mixing them up with medium pace and some spinners as he starts with three dot balls as the pressure builds for Bangladesh. A slower ball off the final delivery and Sabbir's swing is way too early, as he edges into safely into the covers. Just the one off the over.

Bang 30-2

Shakib Al Hasan in now and that's not the greatest powerplay for Bangladesh. Grant Elliott to come into the attack for New Zealand...

WICKET

Mithun b McClenaghan 11 (Bang 29-1)

Mitchell McClenaghan on for New Zealand as they continue with a spin/left-arm seam combination. He's over the wicket initially but as soon as he goes round he strikes with a cutter as Mithun misses with an ugly heave.

Adam Mountford

BBC Test Match Special producer in Delhi

Ireland’s bowlers have pulled this back well and now Australia captain Meg Lanning has gone bowled by Kim Garth for eight.

Australia should reach their victory target with ease but it’s a chance for Ireland to show they deserve their place at the top table.

Australia 33-2 after six overs - full scorecard

Bang 27-1

A first bowling change but still spin as Mitchell Santner comes on and a much-needed boundary as Sabbir goes aerial towards long-on. Mithun then gets in the act as Santner drops short. Bangladesh finally moving and that's the third four of the over as Sabbir misses a sweep but the ball glances off his pad and runs down for leg-byes.

Bang 13-1

Sabbir off the mark with a flick off the pads for two. A tight line from Anderson so far, not offering the Bangladeshis any room. Mohammad Mithun restricted to five off 12 balls so far as they get six off the over.

Bang 7-1

Sabbir Rahman is the new man as McCullum continues. He tries to pinch a single off the final ball of the over but thinks better over it and scampers back. Subdued start to the powerplay for Bangladesh.

WICKET

Tamim run out 3 (Bang 4-1)

A quick single proves the end for Tamim as Colin Munro throws down the stumps from third man. Great start for the Kiwis.
