Ferguson delivers to Mushfiqur, and it’s a bowled! He’s dragged it onto the stumps! Ferguson shatters the partnership, and New Zealand secures a wicket immediately after the break! Mushfiqur will be deeply disappointed with that dismissal.
It was a slightly shorter delivery aimed at the off-stump. Mushfiqur attempted to defend it, but the ball rose unexpectedly, and he managed only a gentle touch, resulting in it deflecting off the bat’s face and crashing into the stumps.
New Zealand holds a 1-0 lead in the three-match series after defeating Bangladesh by a margin of 86 runs in the second ODI. The opening ODI encounter was abandoned due to inclement weather.
Despite New Zealand fielding a less experienced team for the series, with Lockie Ferguson at the helm, Bangladesh also had to cope with the absence of several key players in the first two matches.
In the final match of the series, Litton Das, who stood in for Shakib Al Hasan, will not be available, and Tamim Iqbal and Mustafizur Rahman have been rested. On Tuesday, Najmul Hossain Shanto will lead the Bangladesh side, while Mushfiqur Rahim and Mehidy Hasan Miraz make their return to the squad, providing them with valuable playing time ahead of the World Cup.
