The maiden centuries to Devon Conway and everywhere Daryl Mitchell lifted New Zealand to a 164-fold victory over Bangladesh in the third one-day international cricket Friday and 3-0 in the series.
South African-born Conway won 126, including a century of 95 balls, and shared a record partnership with Mitchell of 159, while New Zealand made 318-6 watts first after winning the throw. Mitchell took 17 tracks from the 50’s to complete his century, in 92 balls, since the last delivery of the inning.
Matt Henry then crashed through Bangladesh’s top order, taking 3-13 of his first four overs to undermine the response from tourists.
Bangladesh dropped to 26-3 when Trent Bult pulled out an impressive third-man catch to fire Lytton Das, and was eventually taken out for 154 in the 43rd.
Mahmudula extended the inning with an undefeated 76 for Bangladesh, and Jimmy Niysham returned the best results in the career of ODI from 5-27 for New Zealand.
Earlier, Conway’s constant passes of 110 balls led to the New Zealand rally, after 57-3 in the 11th.
Mitchell secured the drama at the end of his race against time to reach his hundred.
He reached the last over at 83 and hit three fours from the first three balls of Mustafizur Rahman, the third from the ball to reach 95.
Mitchell and Mitchell Santner shuffled two runs from the ensuing free kick, but Mitchell managed only one to be 98 and out of strike with the other two balls.
Santner hit the next ball deep in the field and, taking advantage of the wide boundaries of the ground, the pair sprinted for three tracks to get Mitchell back on strike.
He hooked the final ball to the side of his foot and the pair stretched one in two, assisted by a free throw from the field.
“Obviously there was a little running there and I was blowing a little,” Mitchell said.
“It was nice to get the job done and Dev (Conway) was hitting hard to get a score for us. For me, it was just being positive, trying to pick your moments to put pressure on them and try to get a little bit. good luck on the road. “
Conway’s century, his first for New Zealand in any format, followed his undefeated 99 in the Twenty20 international tournament against Australia in February.
There is nothing spectacular in Conway’s style; he emphasizes the technical correctness of any kind of prosperity.
But he has become a ruthless producer of both domestic and international cricket since transferring his devotion from Gauteng and South Africa to Wellington and New Zealand in 2017.
Since its debut in November, Conway has been a fund for New Zealand white cricket tracks, making 366 tracks in 11 international T20s at an average of 52.2 and currently tracing 225 in three one-day internationals at 75.
“I think it’s about me trying to keep it nice and simple by maintaining positive thinking,” he said. “Honor Daryl, he came in and played his natural, positive game.”
Guptill (26) came out soon after and Ross TaylorReturning to the New Zealand team after missing the first two games of the series with tendon tension was not fruitful.
He was out for 7 in the 11th over when New Zealand 57-3.
Conway began recovering New Zealand innings in the 63rd seventh-fourth partnership with the cabinet with captain Tom Latham, who made 18 before falling on the first ball of Sumia Sarkar.
Mitchell took time to establish himself, taking only nine runs from his first 23 balls before releasing a ball from Mehidi Hassan Miraz over the middle of a wicket for six. Mitchell and Conway created a perfect partnership in which Conway provided stability and solid accumulation, and Mitchell managed to hit wisely, reaching his half century of 63 balls.
Conway reached his century with an increased cut-off from Tuskin Ahmed, and his partnership with Mitchell became the highest in New Zealand for the fifth gate against Bangladesh and the highest for each gate in the one-day international pool reservation.
“The two boys (Conway and Mitchell) fought beautifully”, captain of Bangladesh Tamim Iqbal said. “They didn’t give us any chances.
“But sometimes the little things hurt you more, the lost catch and the exhausted chances. New Zealand was exceptional throughout the series. We just weren’t good enough.”
