Not enough runs for Bangladesh
Bangladesh could not get the desired total runs. The way the batsmen ruled over South Africa that was not present in the match against New Zealand. Excluding Shakib the other batsmen like Tamim, Soumya and Mushfique failed to score thirty runs plus.
May be it is a bad luck for Bangladesh to lose the toss. After winning the toss Kiwi captain did not make any late to elect fielding. As the weather in London was cloudy so it helped the bowlers, it can be said.
Bangladesh opening pair could not go for scoring enough runs. The first wicket was fallen when the score is 45. Soumya Sarkar was bowled out by Matt Henry after scoring 25 runs. Then after scoring 15 runs on the scoreboard Tamim Iqbal departed scoring 24 runs.
Mushfique and Shakib were guiding the team well. They made the score to pass one hundred mark but Musfique was run out after scoring 19 runs.
Shakib was playing well as he played against South Africa. He even scored his half century in 54 balls. But he failed to make the innings longer. After scoring 64 runs he returned to the dressing room being caught behind.
Then Mithun tried to settle but was out after scoring 26 runs of 33 balls. Then Mahmudullah returned to the dressing room scoring 22 runs. Mosaddek scored 11 runs.
The first six of Bangladesh innings came from Saifuddin. Before bowled out he scored 29 runs. Miraz scored 8 and Mashrafe scored 1run.
After playing 49.2 overs Bangladesh scored 244 runs sparing all wickets.
