Commentary (Bangladesh innings)

Yet another one-sided match in this edition of the World Twenty20 and one more low intensity contest is coming up in a short while between the defending champions, England and Afghanistan. Do join us then!

Brendon McCullum is the unanimous choice for the Man of the Match award. Says that he is satisfied with his performance and it is nice to contribute in the winning cause. Praises James Franklin for the support and feels that the wicket was a bit skidy but a good one to bat.

Right then, a dominant performance by the Black Caps and they have begun their World Twenty20, 2012 campaign in style. Brendon McCullum's scintillating knock completely decimated the Bangladeshi bowling attack initially and then it was the turn of the Kiwi bowlers to dominate the Asian side. Kyle Mills got into the act straightaway in the run chase and removed three top batsmen in a jiffy. Nasir Hossain, with a half-century, was the only one to prosper while batting for Bangladesh but his efforts were never enough to win the match. A hapless show and now they've to win their next match against Pakistan to stay alive in the competition.

Hello everyone to the coverage of the 5th match of the ICC World Twenty20 between Bangladesh and New Zealand in Pallekele. New Zealand will start off their campaign against Bangladesh, who have the history to upset big teams. The Kiwis are strong in this format but have had a roller-coaster ride of late as they won the T20I against India but lost both the warm-up matches against Australia and South Africa. The Bangladesh team have improved and have some good spinners. If they play to their potential, the Kiwis are in for the toughest time of their lives.
