Mossadek rocks NZ in must-win clash

Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmudullah, through their 224-run stand for the fourth wicket - the highest ODI stand ever for Bangladesh - scripted a resounding five-wicket win against New Zealand in the Champion's Trophy in Cardiff on Friday.

Taylor hit an unhurried 63 off 82 balls, including six fours, before his mistimed ramp shot cost him at 201-4 in the 39th over.

Though it ultimately proved successful, the run chase started badly for Bangladesh when Tamim Iqbal (0) was out leg before wicket in only the second ball of the innings, beaten by rare swing with the white ball from Tim Southee (3-45).

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 worldwide nations. This win doesn't guarantee Mashrafe Mortaza's side a semi-final spot yet though, as a win for Australia on Saturday will see the Aussies through to the final four.

Ross Taylor and current leading run scorer of the tournament Kane Williamson put on 83 runs for the third wicket before an error in judgement leads to Kane Williamson to be run out for 57.

Pacer Taskin Ahmed, with 2-43, removed Taylor, but it was offspinner Mosaddek Hossain, who had only one wicket in his last five one-day internationals, who did the most damage.

But, as happened in their no-result washout with Australia and defeat by England, the Blackcaps' innings collapsed once the experienced batsmen were out in quick succession.

Patriots sign Julian Edelman to two-year contract extension
He entered the National Football League as a seventh-round draft choice of the Patriots in 2009, the 232nd overall selection. Danny Amendola is set to become a free agent and the Patriots also signed Andrew Hawkins to a one-year deal recently.

The next 50 runs came from only 46 balls and it must be said that New Zealand perhaps relaxed a little in the field, in the knowledge that a wicket would break this stand between their last two recognised batsmen sometime.

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson has tipped his hat to the record-breaking Bangladesh partnership that eliminated the Black Caps from the Champions Trophy. But that was as far as New Zealand's success went. It was Rubel Hossain who removed the unsafe Martin Guptill for 33 off 35 balls, after trapping him in front with good bowling with one that nipped back off the seam with pace. Actually we were not talking when we were building that partnership.

Broom, along with new batsman James Neesham (23), displayed some quality cricket as the duo forged a crucial 27-run partnership before Broom was dismissed by offie Mosaddek Hossain. New Zealand are, quite surprisingly, at the bottom of Group A with Bangladesh in the third position.

New Zealand should have the edge over Bangladesh when it comes to local knowledge given their 87-run defeat by England in Cardiff on Tuesday.

New Zealand wouldn't have imagined it would come down to this when they struck four early blows. This win was only made possible by two star players Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmudullah, with both scoring a wonderful ton each. A single to Jimmy Neesham brought Corey Anderson on strike.

"I think once they get out in the middle, things will just click into place, and yeah, hopefully we can play well in Birmingham", added Smith of a line-up where the big-hitting Chris Lynn, fresh from his IPL exploits, could be recalled.
