New Zealand, on the other hand, were in control of the game as their bowlers did an amazing job of restricting the hosts to a low score. Tim Southee was excellent and did not give away any runs and picked up a wicket in his 5.2 overs. The decision to play Mitchell Santner also proved to be fruitful as he picked up three wickets while Birthday boy, Glenn Phillips also got three scalps with Ajaz Patel getting a couple but being a bit expensive too. The Kiwis would have been happy before coming on to bat, but after a breezy start, it all went downhill for them. Their batters fell like nine pins as they have already lost half their side and all the responsibility now rests on the shoulders of Daryl Mitchell and Glenn Phillips is they want to get close to the Bangladeshi total.
