Bangladesh vs New Zealand 4th ODI 2010 in Bangladesh-Micromax Cup

Bangladesh vs New Zealand 5 match ODI series in Bangladesh 2010 - 4th ODI Summary,Scorecard
It’s a glorious day for Bangladesh Cricket. It is their first ever ODI series winning against full strength test playing opposition. A historic day for Bangladesh indeed. This is their 73rd tournament and 13th series win. They have beaten Zimbabwe and Kenya for some time in an ODI series; they also beat West Indies once, when the top players went for strike and Bangladesh faced a totally new West Indian team. This is why this win is bigger and better than those.

And yet again, Its Sakib Al Hasan, the captain of Bangladesh, sparked the black caps. His all rounder performance brought Bangladesh the most fantastic series win. He is a real talent.

Man of the Match (106 and 3/54)
Daniel Vetttori,The new Zealand captain won the toss and elected to bat first. The New Zealand’s bowlers started well. They picked up the first 3 wickets cheaply in 44 runs. That brought Sakib in. The pitch was slower one and was not the ideal one to bat on. The condition demanded a patient innings from Sakib. But Sakib thought different. Despite of loosing 3 wickets he was very positive on his batting. He was sending the odd balls to the boundary line and at the same time rotating the strike. Imrul Kayes was giving a good company to Sakib until Bredon McCullum took a stunner. Kayes and Sakib added 53 runs partnership. Mushfiq went quickly as a result of misunderstanding between him and Sakib. Then Madmudullah came in. Sakib and Mahmudullah  looked good as they added 66 runs. After the dismissal of Sakib, who scored 105 from just 110 balls, Bangladeshi wickets were falling quickly. They could not use the Batting Power play and all out for 241 with 11 balls left. They needed someone to play a cameo innings at the end of the innings, but nobody could as Bangladesh had to be happy with 241.

In a reply, Mccullum started well. He was hitting the balls well. But Shafiul took a stunning catch in his own bowling. The hard hitting Ross Taylor went only for 3. New Zealand became 88/4 as the skipper Vettori departed. Elliot and KS Williamson had built an threatening partnership of 66. NZ became 150/5. Nathan Mccullum looked very good with his 33 runs in Just 33 balls. 24 runs were required from 12 balls. Two wickets were picked up by Sakib’s 49th over. They needed 16 runs from the last over. KS Williamson was there as NZ’s last hope. He made a wonderful hundred. He was out fir a brilliant knock of 108 off 132 balls. He was the Sakib of NZ. But Bangladesh held their nerve and won the match by 9 runs.

So again an all round performance of Sakib (106 and 3-54) helped Bangladesh to win the series. He was the man of the match. But don’t forget KS Williamson. He tried his heart and should till the very last, but could not resist. He is the youngest ODI centurion for Black caps. Where all other batsman were struggling against the Bangladeshi spinners, he played them quite nicely.

Now Bangladesh is eying to whitewash NZ. Can NZ avoid whitewash?
