New Zealand vs Bangladesh Live Score: Kane Williamson and Daryl Mitchell’s knocks take NZL to a thumping win
Daryl Mitchell finishes off with a six in style. Though Bangladesh has had their moments it has been a convincing win from New Zealand. Bangladesh’s bowling is their stronger suit, however, as the innings went on it tapered off. The spinners have been ineffective and the pacers did start well but as the innings went on they too struggled as Kiwi batters started to go after them. Bangladesh’s batting too is looking nowhere near as good as it should be in this world tournament they have plenty of questions to answer as they are one in three now. New Zealand on the other hand is looking like a well-oiled machine and seems like they have one leg in the semifinal spot with thee wins in three.
