37.5 Taskin Ahmed to Henry Nicholls, byes, FOUR, well, well. Williamson is again in a situation where he's in a race to get to his hundred before the target runs dry. He had faced a similar dilemma in one of the ODIs too and eventually missed out. A low full toss outside off, Nicholls throws his bat at it. Fails to connect. But the ball scurries through after landing and sneaks away past the keeper

37.4 Taskin Ahmed to Henry Nicholls, FOUR, sits up for Nicholls. Short of length into the body, not enough pace behind the delivery and it gives plenty of time to Nicholls to rock back and pull it away through square leg

36.4 Subashis Roy to Ross Taylor, out Caught by Mehedi Hasan!! A blinder from Mehedi at gully. What reflexes! The ball was flying off Taylor's back-cut and Mehedi has plucked it out of thin air. Gets down low, puts the hands up to the right and the ball just nestles in there. The look on his face suggests that he has surprised himself. Ross Taylor c Mehedi Hasan b Subashis Roy 60(77) [4s-6]

Subashis Roy to Ross Taylor, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

35.6 Taskin Ahmed to Ross Taylor, no run, man down, man down! He's been hit right where it hurts the most. Another false pull shot. Misreading the length completely. Very difficult to connect it from that length

35.3 Taskin Ahmed to Ross Taylor, no run, mightily close. It tails in sharply on a fuller length and hits Taylor on the pad. Not out is the call. Curiously, Bangladesh show no interest in the review. Wonder why. Was there an inside edge involved? Replays show that it's missed the inside edge and has hit both pads. Maybe that's what produced the two sounds and dissuaded Bangladesh from the review. Ball-tracking comes up with all three reds.

34.6 Subashis Roy to Ross Taylor, FOUR, 17 needed now. New Zealand are galloping home. Not much that Roy has done wrong here. Such fast hands from Taylor though. There's just a hint of width on this back of a length delivery and Taylor back-cuts it through backward point

33.3 Taskin Ahmed to Williamson, FOUR, gets into the 90s with that slash. Ignores the respect to be given to the wide slip and the gully as he stretches full length in reaching out to the delivery well outside off and the thick top edge gets it to fly over them

runs to win. Williamson needs 14 for his century
