New Zealand sealed their 2nd successive win in the World Cup 2019 this time by a slightly lesser margin as they defeated Bangladesh by two wickets. Shakib Al Hasan’s 68-ball 64 was the top contribution in the Tigers’ total of 244/10 while Matt Henry bagged a 4-wicket haul. New Zealand’s chase was going safely with them placed at 160/2 in 31 overs. They lost wickets regularly as the Blackcaps were eight wickets down when they needed seven runs to win which was eventually scored.

All the statistical highlights from New Zealand’s second straight win in this tournament:

Kiwis @50 CWC wins:

50 – This win against Bangladesh in the 50th in the World Cups for New Zealand. They are only the 2nd side to win 50 games in the World Cup after Australia who has won 63 out of 85 matches so far.


Boult @ 150:

150 – Trent Boult completed 150 wickets in ODI cricket with his 2nd scalp in this game. He needed 81 matches for the milestone, the 2nd fastest behind Saqlain Mushtaq (78). Overall, he is the 8th player from New Zealand with 150+ ODI wickets but none of the previous seven completed this feat in less than 100 matches.

Shakib and all-round doubles:

5 – Shakib Al Hasan has scored a fifty and picked up a wicket in as many as five World Cup matches. Only Tillakaratne Dilshan (6) and Sachin Tendulkar (5) have as many as five CWC games with 50+ runs and at least a wicket.


22 – Number of times Shakib has claimed two and more wickets and recorded a fifty-plus score in his 200-match ODI career. Only Jacques Kallis (23) has achieved this double more often having played 328 games for those.


Taylor adds a couple of records under his belt:

1003 – Ross Taylor completed 1000 runs in ODI format against Bangladesh when he went past his individual score of 79. He is the first player from New Zealand and overall the 6th player to amass 1000 ODI runs against Bangladesh.


8108 – Ross Taylor’s 8108 runs in ODI cricket are the most by any player from New Zealand in ODI cricket. He went past Stephen Fleming’s tally of 8037 runs which includes 30 runs he scored for the ICC World XI in 2005.
