New Zealand maintain winning streak against Bangladesh

New Zealand recorded their fifth straight World Cup victory this morning after bowling Bangladesh out for 174.

In reply, the Black Caps chased down the total for the loss of just one wicket, with Stephen Fleming claiming an unbeaten century with some big shots.

Hamish Marshall hit the winning runs with a six to get his 50.

The victory allowed New Zealand to join Australia at the top of the Super Eights points ladder on six, though the defending world champions have a superior run rate.

The Black Caps’ nine-wicket win — completed in just 29.2 overs — will also boost their net run-rate should they need to rely on that to make the semifinals.

New Zealand 178 for 1 (Fleming 102*, Marshall 50*) beat Bangladesh 174 (Styris 4-43) by 9 wickets with 20.4 overs to spare

In today’s match, Ireland will take on South Africa at Providence in what promises to be an excitingencounter. Watch out for this one.
