  1. Thank you and good night

    It is only right to end with these three clips: when each of Bangladesh's key batsman brought up their centuries and the moment the game was won. Enjoy...

  2. Get Inolved


    Ralph Brooker: Shame that Shakib wasn't there at the end. Brilliant fifth wicket partnership which stole the neutral's heart.

    Morwenna Roche: That game was just awesome!

  3. 'We just said to keep going'

    Bangladesh batsman Mahmudullah: "We didn't talk too much. We just batted and enjoyed each other's company. We had to stay positive. Once the ball stopped swinging it became easier to bat on."

    Bangladesh batsman Shakib, who was named man of the match: "We just said keep going. We didn't talk about the target, we just wanted to bat for 40 overs and see where we got to. It's very important, and a big thing for us. From here, we can only go forward."

    More from Kane Williamson after his side's elimination: "Our best game was one we weren't able to finish against Australia. We came up against a tough side in England and felt in the hunt for a large amount of that game.

    "It is a cut throat tournament. You have three games and you have to make the most of it. Today it is one partnership and we are going home."

  5. From the press box

  6. How's stat?!

    For the first time in 25 ICC tournaments (WC, WT20 and CT), New Zealand end a series without a single win.

  7. 'Bangladesh outplayed us'

    BBC Test Match Special

    New Zealand captain Kane Williamson: "It was certainly an innings of two halves. The first 20 overs we were simply outstanding. The way our bowlers applied themselves was brilliant. Hats off Shakib and Mahmudullah, they batted simply superbly.

    "They outplayed us throughout their partnership and now they have every chance of going through.

    "Conditions weren't easy but we left some runs out there. Closer to 300 would have been a par score. We were far from perfect but take nothing away from Bangladesh. They out played us today."

    The calmness the Bangladesh players showed under real pressure is something any cricketer can be in admiration of. It was wonderful to watch.

  9. New Zealand eliminated

    Bangladesh beat NZ by five wickets

    In regards to the tournament, this defeat has eliminated New Zealand. Bangladesh now await the result of the game between England and Australia on Saturday. An England win sends the Aussies home. If it is rained off, the Aussies go home.

    Looks like England have just hugely enhanced their fanbase.

    Bangladesh done it in some style. What a moment. There were lots of screams on the balcony.

    It is great for the tournament and great for world cricket. It means a lot. I have been entertained.

  11. What a game!

    Bangladesh beat NZ by five wickets

    In case you are only just joining us (in which case, what the....!), Bangladesh were 33-4 after 11.4 overs in pursuit of New Zealand's 266 here in Cardiff.

    And yet they have managed to win it! The reason? Shakib al Hasan and Mahmudullah, who added 224 for the fifth wicket. Yep, 224. Shakib struck 114, with Mahmudullah unbeaten on 102.


  12. Ban 268-5

    Bangladesh win by five wickets

    There it is! What a win! Mosaddek edges through the slips for four to seal the most remarkable of victories for Bangladesh!

    This is a moment he will never forget for his whole career.

  14. Ban 264-5

    Dot ball. We wait.

  15. 100 for Mahmudullah

    Ban 264-5

    Superb. Mahmudullah pulls Boult away to the midwicket boundary to reach three figures. He drops to the turf for a little kiss, and well he might. Just the two more needed for victory.

  16. Ban 260-5

    6 needed from 19 balls

    Just a single this down to third man. Over to you Mahmudullah...

  17. Ban 259-5

    7 needed from 20 balls

    Mosaddek is the new man and off the mark with a two down to wide third man.

    Unbelievable. This has been a perfect innings in terms of the chase. It's been in stages - he rebuilt, maneuvered the field and then he started carving the ball through the infield. It's been perfection.

  19. WICKET

    Shakib b Boult 114 (Ban 257-5)

    Bowls him! A full ball beats the swing from Shakib and a brilliant innings comes to an end. It is a shame he is not going to see it out but with Mahmudullah he has put on 224 - a partnership that is surely going to seal a remarkable win for Bangladesh.

  20. Ban 257-4

    And again. A big swing to a wider ball and the ball flies through off and away. Just brilliant.
