Champions Trophy: Twin tons by Shakib, Mahmudullah help Bangladesh stun Kiwis

ICC Champions Trophy

ICC Champions Trophy

There have been three back-to-back upsets in the ICC second main event after World Cup as earlier Pakistan and Sri Lanka stunned South Africa and India respectively and now weak-considered Bangladesh clinched a stunning victory against New Zealand.

6 Number of centuries for Shakib that have resulted in wins, joint-most for Bangladesh along with Tamim.

"Tamim [Iqbal] always asks me why I can't finish a chase". They ended up making New Zealand look ragged in the bowling and the field, a mark of how well they had controlled the chase. That became 12-3 in the fifth over with Southee's wicket maiden which claimed Soumya Sarkar (3) leg before and put Southee on 3-10.

Mushfiqur was soon castled by Adam Milne for 14 and the noisy Bangladesh support had fallen silent. However, Shakib and Mahmudullah held their nerves to washout Kiwis' hopes of qualifying to semifinals with an astounding 224-run fifth wicket partnership.

Bangladesh's Mahmudullah (R) celebrates their victory in the ICC Champions Trophy match between New Zealand and Bangladesh in Cardiff on Friday.

But Williamson was run out for 57 and his departure prompted a familiar batting collapse which left New Zealand short of their target.

But then New Zealand's lower-middle order unravelled liked it had done against Australia and England.

Neil Broom tried to up the tempo in partnership with Jimmy Neesham with New Zealand just 203-4 off 40 overs only to be the first of two victims in three balls for Mosaddek Hossain (3-13), the off-spinner also trapping Corey Anderson lbw for a first-ball duck.

Williamson made a brilliant hundred against Australia before following up with a classy 97 against England - a match where he was fined but not banned for a dreadfully slow over-rate.

Talking about Bangladesh's semi-final chances, Mortaza said that he would certainly like England to knock out Australia so that his team makes the cut.

He concluded by wishing luck to both the teams and seemed satisfied with the fact that his team did not leave any stone unturned on their part.

"In saying that we would hjave liked a but more, closer to 300 would have been much better and that was achievable but it wasn't to be".

Shakib was declared "Man of the Match" for his match-winning contribution with the bat.

"We have to wait now, but in the last three years we keep improving a lot".

"We know Tamim cannot get a score every time, but we have got some excellent players who can win games".

"It wasn't just the fact that Bangladesh defeated New Zealand by five wickets, but the manner and the circumstances under which victory was achieved, that made it truly special".

"We have to beat England and then I think we're through". It was the first ever 200-run partnership for Bangladesh in ODI cricket, and it could not have come at a more opportune moment.

"You want to come here firing and playing the best cricket", Williamson said.

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson: "It was certainly an innings of two halves".
