New Zealand's efforts to establish a substantial score were consistently thwarted by the relentless pace of attack. Despite brief sparks from Will Young and skipper Tom Latham, the Bangladeshi bowlers dominated, restricting them to a meager 98 runs in the 32nd over.

Soumya Sarkar's exceptional bowling further dismantled the Kiwi tail, claiming 3 wickets for just 18 runs. The chase appeared straightforward for Bangladesh, requiring 99 runs to clinch victory.

Despite Soumya's retirement due to an eye issue, Anamul Haque Bijoy and skipper Nazmul forged a resilient partnership, dashing any hopes of a Kiwi resurgence. Nazmul's composed innings ensured Bangladesh sealed the win in the 16th over, marking a historic breakthrough against New Zealand.
