18:10 hrs IST: WICKET! A bit of confusion left Kane Williamson stranded in the middle of the pitch and Mosaddek’s throw to Shakib Al Hasan gets rid of the skipper. NZ are 152/3 after 30 overs.

18:08 hrs IST: FOUR! Shakib with a rare bad ball pitched outside leg, and Taylor swivels and hits him for a four to bring him closer to a half-century of his own.

18:00 hrs IST: New Zealand’s strategy seems to be to hit the bad balls to the boundary, rotate the strike and also conserve wickets to go hard in the final 10 overs. They are 144/2 after 27 overs.

17:56 hrs IST: Shakib, who short of getting a wicket has been solid, bowls another good over. NZ are 138/2 after 26 overs.

17:53 hrs IST: NZ are 134/2 after 25 overs.

17:52 hrs IST: FOUR! Taylor smacks Rubel through the leg side. He will no doubt be looking to get a big score of his own.

16:24 hrs IST: Mortaza’s 3rd over yields 11 runs. New Zealand are getting a move on here, and are 31/0 after 5 overs.

16:19 hrs IST: Guptill is done waiting, and promptly hits Mortaza for a six and a four off consecutive balls.

16:17 hrs IST: FOUR! Mustafizur’s second over – which was going ell – ends with another boundary from Martin Guptill’s bat. NZ are 20/0 after 4 overs.

16:14 hrs IST: Maiden over from Mortaza, who is bowling quite well so far. NZ are 12/0 after 3 overs.
