The New Zealand Blackcaps made it four from four in the ICC World T20 as they annihilated Bangladesh by a massive margin of 75 runs at Eden Garden, Kolkata on Saturday.
Williamson won the toss and opted to make first use of a dry looking surface. Nicholls opened the batting in the absence of the injured Guptill but failed to use his chance when he was bowled by Rahman for 7 off 11 balls. Williamson played a Captains knock at the top of the order, top scoring with 43 off 32 balls, making good use of the power play overs and the hard new ball. Munro played an out of character knock with his 35 from 33 balls while Taylor threatened to get going with his 28 off 24 balls. The tail of the Blackcaps capitulated on the slow surface, reaching 145/8 after the allotted 20 overs. Rahman was magnificent with the ball ending with figures of 5/22 on a surface well-suited to his style of bowling.
Bangladesh would’ve been positive about chasing down 146 for the win, but were under pressure from the outset with New Zealand opting to play three specialist spinners. Only two of the top six managed to reach double figures as wicket tumbled at regular intervals. It was the change of pace from Grant Elliott that did most of the damage, taking 3/12 form his 4 overs. The spin of Sodhi was also very effective during his 3/21 from 3.4 overs. Bangladesh were bowled out for a mere 70 runs in the 16th over, as they never adapted to the slow surface.
The win makes New Zealand the only unbeaten side in the tournament, and they will be hoping to take their excellent form and momentum into the semi-finals.
