  • Hats off to Bangladesh. Salma Khatun and Ritu Moni ran through the batting, sharing 7 wickets between them and they will be very happy that they are chasing down 92. Whether it is only 92 or not, only time will tell. Stay tuned.
  • Don't know how this all came about. The White Ferns got off to a terrific start, getting 36 for the first wicket and then a partnership for the third wicket between Suzie Bates and Maddy Green. But the former's wicket triggered a collapse and the White Ferns had no answer to the spinning ball. Off spin leg spin, no spin, flipper, you name it. The questions were asked but there were no answers.
  • That is a complete shocker. From 66/2 to 91 all out. 8 wickets for 25 runs! New Zealand had this issue coming into the World Cup that their middle order has not had batting time in the middle at all. And today, those fears have compounded really badly.
  • 18.2 OUT! LBW! The decision is reversed and NEW ZEALAND ARE BOWLED OUT FOR 91! The ball is landed outside off, Tahuhu looks to flick it across the line but misses as the ball spins in. Beats the bat and hits the pads and up goes Salma in an appeal. But the umpire moves away. The captain cum bowler instantly goes for the review and Ultra Edge does not detect any spike. Ball Tracker shows three reds, with the ball projected to hit the leg stump!
  • Huge shout for LBW! Turned down and the skipper immediately asks for the review. And Ball Tracker shows why - Three reds and New Zealand are all out!
  • 18.1 MIX UP, BUT SAFE! Outside off, Mair punches it towards point. There is a mix up between the two batters and there is a run out chance at the keeper's end but the throw is late and weak to the keeper. Tahuhu makes it.
  • Salma Khatun comes back on. 2-0-6-2 so far.
  • 17.6 Loop and outside off, Tahuhu looks to push but the ball spins away past the outside edge. 90/9
  • 17.5 Outside off, punched off the back foot for a single.
  • Rosemary Mair is the last batter.
  • 17.4 OUT! CAUGHT BEHIND! Excellent keeping, beautiful bowling. Honest batting too, not waiting for the umpire to give his verdict. Beautifully looped up outside off, Kasperek initially comes forward but then goes back and looks to push. She is not sure whether the ball will spin in or go away. The ball spins away, takes the outside edge and settles into the mitts of the keeper. There is an appeal made and the finger is raised but the batter walks.
  • 17.3 Full and around off, Tahuhu leans and swings it down to long on for a run.
  • 17.2 Outside off, punched off the back foot for a single.
  • 17.1 Full and outside off, Tahuhu looks to drive but the ball goes off the outside edge and goes past short third man, who circles all around the ball. Misses it. But just a run taken.
  • 16.6 Punches this towards short third man for a single. 86/8
  • Lea Tahuhu walks in.
  • 16.5 OUT! CAUGHT! Another one caught at point. Short and outside off, Kerr looks to cut but finds point. Fahima Khatun takes a sitter.
  • 16.4 DROPPED! Tough chance, great attempt. Landed outside off, Kerr looks to drive but the ball goes away, takes the outside edge and goes to short third man. Or slightly wide, rather. Salma Khatun dives to her left but the ball goes off her hands towards the fence. Two runs taken.
  • 16.3 On middle, pushed to long on for a run.
  • 16.2 Full and outside off, driven through mid off for a single.
  • Leigh Kasperek walks in at number 9, replacing Peterson.
  • 16.1 OUT! CAUGHT! What a stunner from Fargana Hogue. Full and outside off, Peterson gets down and aims a mighty slog. But all she manages is a top edge. The ball seems like it will not carry to deep mid-wicket but Fargana comes running in from the fence, keeps her eyes on the ball and then dives forward to take a brilliant catch! They are into the tail now.
  • 15.6 Full and outside off, driven straight to cover. 81/6
  • 15.5 Outside off, punched wide of cover for a single.
  • 15.4 FOUR! Beautiful batting. Full and outside off, Peterson jumps down the track and lofts it with finesse over mid off for a boundary.
  • 15.3 Full and outside off, driven straight back to the bowler.
  • 15.2 Tossed up outside off, Peterson looks to play that, then wants to leave it. Is late and gets beaten.
  • 15.1 Landed outside off, played through point for a single.
  • 14.6 Full and outside off, driven straight to cover. 75/6
  • Anna Peterson walks in at number 8, replacing Martin.
  • 14.5 OUT! CAUGHT! Cut straight to point. Wicket number 6 goes. Are we onto something here? Short and wide outside off, Martin rocks back and looks to cut. She cannot keep it down and finds Fahima Khatun at point!
  • 14.4 FOUR! Dragged away. A boundary after 31 balls. Full and outside off, Martin gets across, looks to sweep but the ball goes off the inner half and beats short fine leg!
  • 14.3 Outside off, Martin looks to punch this down the ground but mistimes it off the bottom edge towards the bowler who leaps and fumbles. Mid off mops it up.
  • 14.2 Full and outside off, pushed through the covers for a run.
  • 14.1 Outside off, punched off the back foot for a single.
  • 13.6 Full and outside off, pushed straight to cover. Could this be a game-changing over? 69/5
  • 13.5 Flicks this off her pads for a single.
  • 13.4 Full and outside off, driven straight to cover.
  • Amelia Kerr walks in next.
  • 13.3 OUT! DROPPED, BUT A RUN OUT! Trouble, trouble for New Zealand. Full and outside off, Martin chips it straight back to the bowler. It is low and Rumana tries to get her hand to it but cannot hold on. However, the ball drops down and trickles onto the stumps! Rumana first appeals and then celebrates as the umpire refers it upstairs. Jensen is already walking and replays show why - she is nowhere in the picture when the ball hits the stumps!
  • Is that a run out first ball? Jensen is already walking back! Referred upstairs... Hayley is gone!
  • Katey Martin walks in at number 6, replacing Green.
  • 13.2 OUT! STUMPED! Nicely done by the bowler. Floated outside off, Green comes down the track but is deceived by the flight and lack of pace. She tries to manufacture a swing but misses. The ball dips and then spins away, to beat the outside edge. She is far too down the track and the keeper Nigar Sultana whips off the bails!
  • 13.1 Full and outside off, swept-hit down to long on for a single.
  • 12.6 Short and outside off, punched past point for a single. 67/3
  • 12.5 Landed outside off, played straight to point.
  • 12.4 Full and outside off, driven back to the bowler.
  • Hayley Jensen walks in at number 5, replacing Bates.
  • 12.3 OUT! BOWLED! That has gone right through! A ripper of a delivery from Moni. A length ball, outside off, Bates goes back and looks to flick against the line but misses. The ball stays low, skids through and hits the middle stump! Ritu is pumped and jumping up and down in joy.

  • 8.2 Full and outside off, driven straight to the bowler.
  • Maddy Green comes in at number 4, replacing Priest.
  • 8.1 OUT! LBW! Well, it was a surprise that it was reviewed in the first place. It comes even as a bigger surprise that the review is not lost, with the event looking dead plumb. Full and outside off, Priest got down to sweep but missed and was hit on the pads. There was an appeal and up went the umpire's finger. Priest looks up at Bates and then signals the 'T'. Ball Tracker shows the impact to be around off, indicating umpire's call but the ball to be hitting the leg stump.
  • Priest has been adjudged LBW! She asks her captain and then signals for the review. Here comes Ball Tracker. Impact is umpire's call while the ball is projected to spin into the leg stump!

  • 6.5 OUT! CAUGHT! The first breakthrough has come. Short and outside off, Devine goes back, looks to cut but cannot keep it down. It is straight to Fahima Khatun who takes it and leaps in joy!

  • New Zealand Women (Playing XI) - Rachel Priest(WK), Sophie Devine(C), Suzie Bates, Maddy Green, Katey Martin, Amelia Kerr, Hayley Jensen, Anna Peterson, Leigh Kasperek, Lea Tahuhu and Rosemary Mair.
  • PITCH REPORT - The track has a bit of grass on it but the colours are different. That means there will be indifferent bounce.
  • Bangladesh captain, Salma Khatun, says that the wicket is good and if the bowlers stick to good lines and lengths, they can do well. She is very excited on Bangladesh meeting New Zealand and hopes that her team does well. Informs that there are 4 changes in the playing XI.
  • New Zealand skipper, Sophie Devine, says that she wants to bat first today as they have chased in both of their previous games. Does not want to look too much into last game's loss and instead, takes the way it was finished, bringing the game close, as a positive. Is not looking too far ahead into the potential quarter-final with Australia. Wants to finish this game first, win it and then move ahead.
  • TOSS - Time for the spin of the coin. Sophie Devine flips it, Heads is the call from Salma Khatun but it is a Tail. NEW ZEALAND WILL BAT FIRST.
  • WEATHER - Overcast skies started the day, but now, the conditions are bright and sunny.
  • Game 13 is here! Bangladesh take on New Zealand in their first ever clash in Women's T20Is. Coming to the context of the game, for the world, this is a dead rubber, except for the fact that if New Zealand lose, they need to lose by a small margin. But if truth be told, Bangladesh are not totally out yet. Can we get a good contest? Hello and a warm welcome to the Saturday double header of the 2020 T20 World Cup at the Junction Oval, Melbourne. The India-Sri Lanka game is right after this.

New Zealand Women Vs Bangladesh Women Live Score (T20) Ball by Ball Commentary

  • That ends a bizarre game. New Zealand stay alive with this win but they will be watching the next match with interest. India-Sri Lanka is up next. India have already qualified, but if they win, then it will be knockout for Sri Lanka as well. Join us back at 3 pm local (0400 GMT).
  • Victorious New Zealand skipper, Sophie Devine, bluntly says that she was shocked with the score at the halfway point. Says that Bangladesh bowled well on a pitch difficult to bat on but then laments the lack of application from her batters. All the more, praises her coach for keeping things calm in the dressing room and making the bowlers believe they could defend this total. Blames her batters for missing straight balls from Bangladesh but adds that her own bowlers took cue from those dismissals. On their next clash against Australia, Devine says that the batting certainly needs to improve. Adds that be it any sport, they are always eager to take on Australia. Aims to take a break on Sunday and then get stuck into the Aussies on Monday.
  • Bangladesh captain, Salma Khatun, admits that the batting was not good at all. praises Ritu Moni for her excellent bowling. On Bangladesh's final match, Khatun says that they would hope to bat better.
  • HAYLEY JENSEN HAS BEEN NAMED THE PLAYER OF THE MATCH. Admits that her team did not bat too well but is happy that the bowlers stuck to their task. On the plans, Jensen says that it was just keeping it nice and simple and bowl wicket to wicket. On their quarter-final clash against Australia, Hayley says that Australia are a good unit and they just need to stick to their basics.
  • Unfair treatment given to the Bangladesh bowlers. They bowled their hearts out, restricting New Zealand to 91 but their batters let them down completely. Tough pill to swallow. Please stay tuned for the presentation...
  • Definitely a massive opportunity missed by Bangladesh. Yes, they were playing New Zealand for the first time in Women's T20Is, but you do back yourself to chase down 92, don't you? They never got going and then unfortunately had a freak injury to Nigar Sultana. That derailed their chase completely. Just 3 batters managed double figures.
  • Having chosen to bat first, New Zealand would have aimed for somewhere around 150 but that never came. They lost their way with the bat but with the ball, they came all guns firing. They were miserly in the Powerplay, stifling the runs and then got the wickets eventually. Amelia Kerr started the choke, conceding just 10 in her 4 overs while Hayley Jensen picked up 3 wickets. Every bowler was economical.
  • Hmmmm! Which part of the game was more shocking? New Zealand getting bowled out for 91? Or Bangladesh failing to chase down 92? Difficult choice. The White Ferns have found a way to stay alive in this tournament, through some sensational bowling.
  • 19.5 OUT! CAUGHT! That is the game now. Full and outside off, Sultana comes down the track and lofts it over mid off. But Sophie Devine at long off takes it comfortably. NEW ZEALAND WIN BY 17 RUNS!

  • 17.6 Pushes this through mid on for one more. 62/9
  • 17.5 Full on middle, worked through mid-wicket for a run.
  • 17.4 NOT OUT. There is glove involved. Full and outside off, Sultana looks to sweep but misses and gets hit on the pads. There is a massive shout for LBW but it is turned down. Kasperek wants a review and her skipper consents. However, Ultra Edge detects a spike when the ball passes the glove.
  • Is that the end of the game? Nigar Sultana has not been adjudged out on an LBW appeal. Kasperek is confident she has her victim. The review is taken. But Ultra Edge detects a spike when the ball goes past the glove.

  • Rumana Ahmed walks in at number 6, replacing Fargana.
  • 9.5 OUT! RUN OUT! Total mishap. No communication and that is the end of the short stay for Fargana. She is storming up, having a few words to say to her partner but that will have to be in the dressing room. New Zealand are bossing this now. Full and outside off, Hoque pushes this towards cover and sets off for a single. But there is no calling. Hence, the non-striker pays no heed. She then sees the striker charging towards her and has to send her back. Too late. Sohpie Devine charges onto the ball from short extra cover and returns a simple throw to the keeper Rachel Priest. Gone. 61 more needed from 61 balls.
  • 9.4 Fractionally short outside off, cut straight to backward point.
  • 9.3 Full and outside off, watchfully defended.
  • NIGAR SULTANA IS WALKING OFF. This is a body blow to Bangladesh. She was getting into some sort of rhythm but now, it has been cut short, unluckily. The stretcher has been called for and the new batter, Fargana Hoque, is already walking out to the middle. The stretcher has not come out but it is more sort of a cabbie, like the ones we have in golf. Sultana struggles to get up and then limps, hobbles, loses balance but is given some support. Seems like she is struggling to breathe. Hope all is well with her...
  • Nigar Sultana is down in immense pain. This does not look good at all. The physio is coming running out to the middle.
  • 9.2 OUCH! That must have hurt. Sultana is down in pain. Full and outside off, Sultana reaches out, looks to sweep but gets a top edge. The ball flies and hits her right on the neck!
  • 9.1 Starts with one down the leg side, tickled past short fine leg. The fielder does well to get to the ball and slide to prevent the boundary. Two runs taken.

  • 7.6 Full toss outside off, pushed towards mid off. 28/2
  • 7.5 Huge shout for LBW! Turned down! No review taken. Was that turning too much? The googly, around off, Ritu looks to flick but misses and is hit on the pads. There is a long discussion between the players but no review taken. Ball Tracker shows it to be missing leg.

  • 7.3 Goes right back in her crease and defends.
  • 7.2 Around off, defended watchfully.

  • 5.4 Close call! The wrong 'un from Kerr, outside off, Sultana goes back to cut but gets a bottom edge which goes back to the bowler!
  • 5.3 DROPPED! Tough chance. Short and outside off, Nigar looks to cut but is too close to the ball. Gets a bottom edge which hits the keeper's pads even before she can react. Goes down.
  • 5.2 Landed outside off, punched straight to cover.
  • 5.1 Around off, defended watchfully.
  • Nigar Sultana walks in at number 4, replacing Ayesha Rahman.
  • 4.6 OUT! CAUGHT! Second wicket in the Powerplay and the pressure is telling on Bangladesh. This is exceptional bowling from New Zealand. They are tying the runs down and that is resulting in the wickets. Full and around off, Ayesha looks to go over the top but the ball hits her bat on the higher side. The ball lobs in the air and Sophie Devine runs back from mid off to complete a good catch. Bangladesh are getting into a mire.

  • 2.5 Full toss outside off, driven straight to mid off.
