Bangladesh pull off a stunning win in Cardiff


London, June 9 (TNS): Bangladesh defeated New Zealand by 5 wickets to keep their ICC Champions Trophy dreams alive.

Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmudullah both scored brilliant hundreds after Tim Southee’s three early strikes, in their final Group A game in the ICC Champions Trophy.

Earlier, New Zealand made 265/8 with Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor scored fifties. For Bangladesh, Mosaddek Hossain took three wickets. The win will take Bangladesh closer to the semi-finals but not guarantee a spot as that will be decided after the England vs Australia match on Saturday.

If England beat Australia, the winner between New Zealand vs Bangladesh will go through but if Australia beat the hosts then the two Ashes rivals will progress to the knockouts. Get full cricket score of New Zealand vs Bangladesh here.
