However, a record stand of 224 between Shakib Al Hasan (114) and Mahmudullah (102 not out) saw the Tigers complete a stunning win with 16 balls remaining. "Shakib took some time and then he took off", Mahmudullah added.

Bangladesh have dumped New Zealand out of the ICC Champions Trophy in most spectacular fashion as they came back from 33 for four to chase 266 runs, with five wickets in hand. Adam Milne moved his team closer to Bangladesh's vulnerable tail by beating Mushfiqur Rahim (14) with sheer pace, knocking the middle stump out of the ground - but also bringing Mahmudullah and Shakib together.

Both teams needed to win this match to maintain their hopes of reaching the semi-finals of a tournament featuring the world's top eight one-day global nations. England, who have already clinched a semi-final spot, lead on four points.

Afterwards, skipper Kane Williamson (57) kept the scoreboard ticking with Ross Taylor (63) as they not only notched up half-centuries, each but also shared a pivotal 83-run stand for the third wicket. Taskin bowled with fire whenever he was given the ball, accounting for Luke Ronchi first up and Ross Taylor at a critical moment in the 39th over.

Williamson has been in fine form with scores of 100 and 87 in the first two group matches, but Bangladesh's Tamim Iqbal made 128 and 95 against England and Australia respectively.

Mahmudullah and Shakib targeted Neesham, alternating between attack and well-timed running to force New Zealand to rethink, and they were unable to stop Bangladesh's steady accumulation. But that was as far as New Zealand's success went. "They outplayed us today".

Both New Zealand and Bangladesh have one point after two games, one point behind Australia.

The match was delayed for one hour due to rain but there was no reduction in the overs.

New Zealand had suffered a familiar batting collapse on their way to posting 265 for eight from their 50 overs, but Trent Boult had promised before the game that the Kiwi bowlers would adopt an aggressive approach.

It all leaves Bangladesh and New Zealand needing to win in Wales and then hope England put one over their arch-rivals, assuming more bad weather does not disrupt those calculations.

Mahmudullah joined Shakib at the crease and the pair simply picked off any loose deliveries and continued to rotate the strike.

Bangladesh produced a historic batting performance to beat New Zealand by five wickets and keep their Champions Trophy hopes alive in Cardiff. Even at 228 for 4 in 43 overs, it could have thought it would touch 300, but Bangladesh's bowlers maintained excellent discipline.

The Kiwis were 201 for 3, but Mosaddek removed Broom, James Neesham and Corey Anderson in quick succession to leave them on 240 for 7. I don't get many opportunities to bat for a long time so with Riyad bhai at the other end we were thinking just to bat on.
