This is a historic win for Bangladesh and Bangladeshi fans would love to see their team defeating some other countries in World Cup Cricket 2007. Mashrafe Mortaza was the hero of the match in the end. However, earlier, A Razzak took 4 Kiwi wickets for just 26 runs from his 10 overs. Bangladesh is in Pool B along with India, Sri Lanka and Bermuda. Now, we have to see if Bangladesh can cause a major upset in this group.
On the other hand, this is a shocking defeat for New Zealand. New Zealand just white washed Australia a few days ago in ODI series.
They were beaten by Bangladesh by two wickets with an over to spare at the 3Ws Stadium just outside Bridgetown after tail-ender Mashrafe Mortaza blasted three sixes in a whirlwind 30 from 14 balls to chase down a 227 target.
The result stopped New Zealand’s pre-World Cup momentum in its tracks. They had arrived in the Caribbean with confidence flying high after beating world champions Australia 3-0 only last month.
“There’s not a lot we can say, I guess it’s a result that just shakes you up,” Fleming told a news conference.
New Zealand will be hosted by Bangladesh in the first ODI of the five match series at Mirpur in Dhaka. This is the first instance of the two side playing a five-game series and will see the Kiwis wanting to win their first whitewash 5-0.
The last time the Kiwis were in Bangladesh, they had lost one ODI, but gone on to win the series 2-1. They had won the previous series before this one 3-0.
New Zealand will welcome the return of the captain Daniel Vettori and wicket-keeper Brendon McCullum. Both the players were out of the side on a paternity leave and will look to restamp their authority on the game.
Jesse Ryder also returns to the side, while Ross Taylor will look to be the main batsman for the side.
The Bangladesh team will be without Tamim Iqbal and that would be a huge blow for the team. What should work in their favor is the fact that the Bangladeshis will be led by Mortaza and Shakib will have no pressure on his shoulder
