A young talent from Bangladesh, Mustafizur Rehman has taken 5 wicket haul against strong batting line up of New Zealand in their last match of Super 10 stage on Saturday, the 26th March 2016. In the 28th match of ICC T20 Cricket world cup 2016, Bangladesh vs New Zealand game was being played at Kolkata.

20 years old, left handed bowler, managed to deceive Henry Nicholas and Kane Williamson in the start. He smashed their wickets with his slow off spinners. His orthodox action is causing real trouble for all International players.
4 of his wickets were bowled including Henry Nicholas, Kane Williamson, Mitchen Santner and Nathan McCullum. Only batsman to lose a wicket through a catch was Grant Elliot, who mis-judged a slower and managed to reach into the hands of Shuvagata Hom into deep mid wicket.

Al Amin took 2 wickets while Mashrafe Mortaza was successful for only one time.
With Tamim Iqbal in the top order, Bangladesh will be looking to record their first win in the ICC T20 world cup to give something to praise to their fans back in Bangladesh. Bangladesh has not won even a single game.
They had veyr good chance against when they needed just 2 runs off 3 balls. Unfortunately, a pure inexperience was evident from their batting line up. Instead of scoring 2 runs, India got 3 batsmen out on 3 balls.
