210/3 (20.0/20)
144/8 (20.0/20)
New Zealand beat Bangladesh by 66 runs
Right then. It has been yet another destructive performance by the Kiwis and they deservedly go up 1-0 in the 3-game T20I series. Not a lot of time for Bangladesh to retrospect and they will want to make a comeback in the second game which is a series-decider of sorts as if the visitors lose, then the series will go the way of the Blackcaps. The 2nd T20I of the series will be played on Tuesday, 30th March 2021 at 1900 local (0600 GMT). We hope to have your company for that game. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!
Tim Southee, the captain of New Zealand, says that it was nice and putting up such a performance with a young team is pleasing. Mentions that Will Young has been around for some time and it was pleasing to see him do well today and also Devon Conway who is carrying on with his great form. Feels that when you have a couple of guys knocking on the door, it is a great sign. Says that you stick to your plan with the ball but it is always nice to have runs on the board. Regarding Lockie Ferguson, Southee replies that it is not easy to come back from an injury break but he will be happy with the way he bowled.
Mahmudullah, the Bangladesh skipper, says that their bowlers bowled quite well and praises Nasum Ahmed for his spell. Feels that they let themselves down once again in the batting department and need to pick themselves up. Lauds Devon Conway for his knock and mentions that he has been in great form. Reminds that they had a chance to dismiss him but failed and adds that they need to find ways to get him out. Mahmudullah further opines that 190 was a good score here to chase but they conceded a few more boundaries at the death. Calls Ish Sodhi an experienced campaigner and feels that the ball was gripping for him. Tells that they cannot afford to repeat the same mistakes again and again.
PLAYER OF THE MATCH IS DEVON CONWAY! He starts by saying that he is pretty happy with the way things went today. Calls it happy days. Mentions that you got to be really positive (after losing wickets) and is glad that it came off for him. Tells that it was awesome to bat with Will Young. Shares that for him it's all about watching the ball and sticking to the basics, although sometimes he does try to premeditate his reverse-batted shots.
Clinical show by the Blackcaps despite missing plenty of first-team players. Devon Conway and debutant Will Young set the right tone in their batting innings and it was capped off by some insane hitting at the death by Devon and Glenn Phillips. A total in excess of 200 was always going to be difficult to overhaul and the Kiwi bowlers did the job exceedingly well to earn an easy win. Stay tuned for the presentation...
It anyway was a stiff target to chase for the Bangla Tigers and it became next to impossible after they lost 4 wickets in the Powerplay. Their flavourless batting show on this tour continued and had Afif Hossain and Mohammad Saifuddin not combined for a partnership, the defeat margin would have been even bigger.
Bangladesh have been beaten black and blue here in the first T20I! Everyone expected the Kiwi pacers to do the damage but as it turned out, Ish Sodhi, the leg spinner, blew away Bangladesh's top order. Once again Ish was in top gear, picking up his second 4-wicket haul in two months and it was strange to see a team from the subcontinent struggle against a leggie..

OUT! CAUGHT! A STUNNER! What a catch and this is a beauty from Guppy. He followed the ball all the way and put in a full length dive to take this catch, on this 100th T20I game for him. A length ball, around off, Shoriful Islam slices this one over the point region, where Martin Guptill runs behind, keeps his eyes on the ball and dives to take a stunning catch.
Hamish Bennett is back to operate. 0/19 in his 3 overs.

NOT OUT! An optimistic review but it yields nothing for the Blackcaps. On a good length and around off, Islam looks to play at this one through the off side but misses and the ball goes to the keeper, Conway, who takes it nicely. An appeal for caught behind, but the umpire is unmoved. Tim wants the review and so, he takes it upstairs. A big gap between ball and bat and the Ultra Edge confirms the same.

OUT! Great caught and bowled by Sodhi, diving to his right! A well-disguised wrong 'un, landing full and close to off, Sarkar fails to read the variation as he closes the face of the bat early in an attempt to flick it on the leg side. It lobs back to the bowler off the leading edge and Sodhi dives across to his right to complete an excellent one-handed catch. 168 needed off 86 balls.

Lockie Ferguson To Mohammad Mithun
Short and on middle, it's pulled behind square leg for a couple of runs. Glenn Phillips slides in the deep and sends in a flat throw to the keeper as the batsmen complete the second run. The replays show that a direct hit at the striker's end would have found Mithun short.

Lockie Ferguson To Mohammad Naim OUT!
OUT! Plumb in front! Lockie gets his revenge immediately. A 147 kph delivery, it's full and in the line of the stumps, Naim tries to be adventurous as he shuffles across the stumps for a heave-ho across the line. Fails to connect and is rapped on the pads. They appeal and the finger goes up. Naim looks at his partner and gets the suggestion to not take the DRS. The young man walks back.

Lockie Ferguson To Mohammad Naim
FOUR! What a shot! Naim is not bothered about the extra pace of Lockie. He gets a length ball in his half and smashes it over the bowler's head for a boundary. The youthful exuberance is always a delight to watch!
Bowling change. Lockie Ferguson is unleashed into the attack.

Clean effort in the deep by Finn Allen! Bennett pitches it up and outside off, Naim unfurls a square drive and it races away. Allen runs across to his left from third man, puts in a slide near the fence and pulls it back. The ball though starts to roll towards the line again as he picks it up. The onfield umpire gets it checked upstairs and is told by the third umpire that it's a clean piece of fielding. Two added to the total.
