However, Bangladesh lost the toss and came to field though it was also the choice of the team skipper Mashrafe and if he could win then decided to field, according to the reports. But the decision was completely wrong. The field is almost similar of the Aussie pitch where they spent their pre tournament camp. Though, team Bangladesh possessed a strong bowling line up but they could not utilize it well. At the end of the complete fifty overs, they almost took seven wickets where Mustafiz and Taskin took two wickets each along with Shakib took three wickets so far. Though, Mustafiz was known as the most economy bowler but in this match, he bowled 10 overs and spent total 62 runs. It is the most expensive match of cutter master but he was amazing as well.

Mustafiz started to bowl with the new ball at Christchurch and presented an amazing spell. He missed last six match and after passing the injury period since long his attacking style was not faded. He represented a firing spell against the Black Caps. Due to his operation, his bowling pace was a little slow but he managed that with bhis different cutter weapons. At his first over in the first spell, he gave just two runs and his second over, he spent just five and in third over, he gave four runs so far. He took Guptill in his third over. Guptill played confusingly and gave an easy catch to Soumya.

After the end of his first spell, his bowling figure was 5 – 0 – 15 – 1. In the meantime, he was received just one boundary. But his second spell was expensive. In his last five overs, he gave 47 runs but also got one important wickets who made a century.
