44.3Saifuddin to Santner

0
Huge shout for LBW! Not given. That was close. Full on the pads, Santner looks to hit but to the naked eye it looks like he has missed it. Bangladesh players put in a huge appeal and they are convinced they have got their man but the man who matters the most, the umpire is unmoved. They do not have any review left. Hawk Eye later on shows Paul Reiffel was spot on as the ball was pitching outside leg.

43.3Hossain to Neesham

W
OUT! Taken! Well o well, when everyone was wondering why has Mosaddek been given the ball, he strikes! Hossain gets his second of the match. Neesham looks to finish the game and targets the part- timer. Hossain bowls a flatter one outside off. Neesham, without coming to the pitch of the delivery looks to go downtown but can only manage to offer a simple catch to Sarkar at long off. He cannot get the elevation and distance right. Has New Zealand pressed the panic button here?

The game continues to enthrall.

FOUR! Almost chopped on. New Zealand are not complaining though, they will take it no matter how they come.
