New Zealand beats Bangladesh in third T20I to keep series alive

Ajaz Patel claimed four wickets as New Zealand beat Bangladesh by 52 runs in the third T20I on Sunday

Ajaz Patel claimed career-best 4-16 as New Zealand defeated Bangladesh by 52 runs in the third T20I to stay alive in the five-match series in Dhaka on Sunday. Henry Nicholls top-scored with 36 runs off 29 balls as the visitors posted 128/5 in 20 overs while Bangladesh were bowled out for 76 in 19.3 overs. 

Black Caps skipper Tom Latham won the toss and elected to bat as they lost wickets at regular intervals. The visitors went from 17/1 in the third over to 62/5 by the 11th over. Opener Rachin Ravindra and Will Young scored 20 runs each during this period. 

Their struggles eased when Nicholls was joined by Tom Blundell (30 not out off 30 balls) as the pair hit three boundaries each in their unbeaten partnership of 66 runs in 55 balls. Medium pacer Mohammad Saifuddin was the pick of Bangladesh bowlers with figures of 2-28.

The hosts began the chase positively with openers Liton Das (13 off 19 balls) and Mohammad Naim (15 off 11 balls) adding 23 runs for the first wicket before Ravindra castled Naim. 

Patel then struck twice in fourth over, sending back Mahedi Hasan (1 off 4 balls) and Shakib al Hasan for a duck to trigger Bangaldesh's collapse. Mushfiqur Rahim was the lone fighter with an unbeaten 20 off 37 balls.

Cole McConchie (3-15) also played a crucial role in claiming the wickets of Liton Das and Nural Hasan, while pacers Colin de Grandhomme and Scott Kuggeleijn got a wicket each.

The fourth T20I will be played at the Shere Bangla Stadium in Dhaka on Wednesday (September 8).
