After the first game being washed out due to rain and losing the second ODI, Bangladesh are taking on New Zealand in the third and final ODI of the three-match series at Dhaka.
After winning the toss and electing to bat, Bangladesh encountered a challenging start as the formidable duo of Trent Boult and Adam Milne wreaked havoc on their top-order batters. Milne, making a triumphant return from injury, dismissed the debutant Zakir Hasan with a pinpoint yorker in just his 2nd over, reducing the opposition batter for a single run off five balls.
Towhid Hridoy accumulated 18 runs off 17 deliveries before falling victim to Milne’s prowess in the 6th over. Steering the innings then shifted to skipper Najmul Hossain Shanto and the seasoned wicket-keeper batter Mushfiqur Rahim. With their calm and composed approach, this pair maintained a steady run rate and stitched together a valuable 53-run partnership for the 4th wicket.
However, shortly after the drinks break, Lockie Ferguson, the Kiwi speedster, managed to dismiss Rahim for 18 runs off 25 balls.

Mahmudullah Riyad joined forces with Shanto, and the duo added 49 runs for the 5th wicket. While the stand-in skipper held one end steadfastly, Bangladesh’s batting lineup crumbled once he departed after an impressive knock of 76 runs. Ultimately, Bangladesh wre bundled out for 171 runs in 34.3 overs.

Adam Milne showcased his brilliance with the ball, instilling fear in the hearts of the Bangladeshi batters through his phenomenal bowling performance, which yielded remarkable figures of 4/34.
