Bangladesh defeated New Zealand by four runs in the 2nd T20I to take a 2-0 lead in the ongoing five-match series on Friday
An inexperienced New Zealand side suffered defear the opening match by seven wickets on Wednesday when they were bowled out for 60 — their joint-lowest Twenty20 international score.
Shakib returned figures of 2-10 and then made 25 as Bangladesh chased down their target in 15 overs to win by seven wickets and lead the five-match series 1-0 in Dhaka.
But it was the bowlers who set up victory with Mustafizur Rahman taking three to dismiss New Zealand for their joint-lowest T20 total — the same score against Sri Lanka in 2014 at Chattogram — in 16.5 overs.
Meanwhile, left-arm spinner Ajaz Patel, who returned the second most economical figures for a New Zealand spinner in T20s with 1-7, behind only Daniel Vettori’s 3-6 against Bangladesh, vowed to learn from the opener.
“It was nice to finally get out there. We have been training for a few days but you never know what it was going to be like until you get out in the middle,” Patel told reporters on Thursday.
