Scorer: Chandan Duorah | Commentator: Ankur Dhawan

Phew, hope everyone has their finger nails in tact. That's all from us folks, and this is Ankur Dhawan, signing off on behalf of Liam Brickhill, Shashank Kishore and Chandan Duorah. Good night and see you tomorrow.

Williamson: Nice to get across the line, the first half was outstanding the fielding was excellent. Not the ,most clinical effort with the bat. Few soft dismissals but a good experience to have in this tournament. Santner was outstanding with the ball, we were expecting a little more pace from the surface but guys adjusted to build pressure. The guys on the sidelines, there have been niggles, but they're improving.

Mashrafe: it was a good wicket, we were 20-30 short, the outfield was slow, I think we lost too many wickets after people getting set and getting out. Yeah, obviously, he (Taylor) was a set batsman but in the end we knew we had to get the wickets but credit goes to them for getting over the line. We still have seven matches left, we have to go one by one, hopefully we can come back next match

Ross Taylor is the man of the match: definitely, very nervous in the end, credit to Bangladesh, they put pressure on us, could have gone either way. the bowler's bowled well, but they kept putting pressure on us and we kept losing wickets but it was good to get over the line. Couple of close calls running between the wickets but I enjoy batting with Kane, hopefully we can run better against Afghanistan.

9.10pm What drama, another imperfect game produces a nail-biting finish. Santner holds his nerve to take New Zealand home. Heart break for Bangladesh and New Zealand go on top of the table. Both teams tried to outdo each other's errors and eventually Bangladesh succeeded. That's not to discredit a dramatic comeback by the bowlers, but it would not have been possible without the help of some of the New Zealand batsmen who gifted their wickets away. In the end, It was always going to be a game of what iffs after Bangladesh squandered numerous run-out chances offered by the pair of Taylor and Williamson, Mushfiqur botching up sensationally as he knocked off the bails with his elbow in his eagerness to collect Tamim's throw which was headed for the middle stump to reprieve Williamson. The running got better, Taylor was in sublime form and Williamson nudged to ball into gaps to keep things ticking. They lost their way thereafter as Bangladesh kept striking back and made a real match of it but that 105-run stand between Taylor and Williamson had knocked off a major chunk of the target and the tail just about wagged to take them home.

Mustafizur Rahman to Santner, FOUR runs, full outside off and Santner finishes it off in style and with an insane calmness about him, drilled through the covers for four to seal a tight win

Mohammad Saifuddin to Ferguson, FOUR runs, that virtually seals the game! Agony for Bangladesh as he the full one fine and into the third-man boundary. Scores level

Mohammad Saifuddin to Ferguson, 1 wide, short one on middle and it's too high as he watches it sail over and the umpire calls it wide to release some of the pressure off New Zealand
