On Friday, Bangladesh finished with a paltry 134/8 after being limited by New Zealand in the fifth T20I.


New Zealand came out on top in the 5th T20I Friday by defeating Bangladesh by 27 runs.

The Kiwis only lost by two runs, meaning they got a better result in their 2-3 series loss.

Tom Latham got his name on the scorecard for a fifty, and Ajaz Patel collected two wickets.

After a 27-run triumph in Dhaka, New Zealand’s spinner Ajaz Patel helped his team with two wickets in the fifth Twenty20 International.

Batting aggressively, Skipper Tom Latham and Finn Allen went on to score big hits that were later supported by the rest of the team to put New Zealand in a comfortable position to win the fifth Twenty20 international against Bangladesh by 27 runs. New Zealand got off to a good start thanks to Latham’s undefeated 50 and Allen’s 24-ball 41 after deciding to bat first in Dhaka. The Bangladesh team lost the series despite having a healthy total of 134-8 on a 20-over scoreboard thanks to New Zealand’s bowlers. Despite the effort of Afif Hossain’s unbeaten 49, Bangladesh could not produce a winning effort with two-for-two Kuggeleijn and Patel taking two wickets apiece in a ten-wicket win.

“It’s great to end this leg of the tour on a high,” Latham remarked after receiving the award for being the man of the match following the victory.

“we managed to piece everything together, and it was done thanks to (pleasing). We performed quite well and learned from our past mistakes.”

Latham, a left-handed wicketkeeper-batsman, became prominent when he belted out a century after Allen’s quickfire blitz, allowing him to seize control of the opposition’s assault.

Bangladesh’s prospects of chasing down their total of 162 were raised when Hossain and skipper Mahmudullah Riyad put up 63 runs for the fifth wicket. Bangladesh had already fallen to 46-4 before the pair’s entry.

Mahmudullah’s wicket fractured the Bangladesh batting line, while Patel’s dismissal of Nurul Hasan in a caught-behind for four runs hammered the Bangladesh batting further.

Patel returned a run of 2-21 in four overs, while Kuggeleijn returned 2-23 in his four overs.

“New Zealand batted exceptionally well, and we didn’t chase effectively, but I’m glad we won the series.” Mahmudullah offered.

Bangladesh knew the series was already over when they picked up a six-wicket victory on Wednesday, and they brought that confidence into the contest on Friday.

The openers got off to a quick start and put Bangladesh in a position of control by piling up a 58-run opening stand before Bangladesh managed to get on the board with a few wickets.

Allen hit sixes and fours and three sixes, showing off his dominant tendencies.

Bangladesh had a breakthrough after removing Ravindra for 17 and putting Shoriful Islam in the game, who was especially brutalized in the barrage.

Next pitch, Allen was given leg-before out, but after a review, it was concluded that the ball pitched outside the leg-stump.

Allen fell to Shoriful, who rolled him over on the following ball, cutting New Zealand’s momentum.

Henry Nicholls and Cole McConchie did their part, but Latham was truly exceptional and made it possible for New Zealand to return to the driver’s seat (17 not out).

Shoriful achieved Bangladesh’s best finish with a 2-48 record.

Left-arm spender Nasum Ahmed, who finished with eight wickets and 159 runs, was the player of the series alongside Latham, who recorded the most runs during the series.
