Mushfiq falls after fifty, Bangladesh 186/5

Bangladesh scored 186 for five after 38 overs against New Zealand in the 3rd match of the Ireland Tri-Nation Series at Clontarf Cricket Club Ground, Dublin on Wednesday.


Mahmudullah and Mosaddek were on the crease with 29 and 4 runs respectively.


The opening stand between Tamim and Soumya played well and scored 72. Tamim scored 23 off 42, Soumya 61 off 67, Sabbir 1 off4 and Shakib 6 off 14 and Mushfiqur 55 off 66.


Tamim was watchful and played second fiddle to his more aggressive partner. Soumya took the attack to the New Zealand bowlers after Bangladesh were asked to bat first.


Soumya was quick to pounce on the bowlers and kept the scoreboard moving at a reasonable rate.


New Zealand captain Tom Latham won the toss and decided to field first against Bangladesh.


Bangladesh XI: Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Sabbir Rahman, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Shakib Al Hasan, Mosaddek Hossain, Mahmudullah, Mehedi Hasan, Taskin Ahmed, Mashrafe Mortaza (c), Mustafizur Rahman


Captain Mortaza returns, Rubel drops out to get Mashrafe back in the team.


New Zealand XI:  Luke Ronchi (wk), Tom Latham (c), George Worker, Ross Taylor, Neil Broom, James Neesham, Colin Munro, Hamish Bennett, Mitchell Santner, Seth Rance, Ish Sodhi


One change for New Zealand, Kuggeleijn misses out with Hamish Bennett coming into replace him.
