Tournament favourites New Zealand will look to maintain their unbeaten run in the World Cup when they host Bangladesh in their final Pool A match at Hamilton. Bangladesh, on the other hand, surprised everyone by knocking out England on Monday to earn a place in the quarter-finals for the first time.

Mahamadullah who became the first batsman in the history of the World Cup to score a century for Bangladesh continued his form when he scored his second century.

He became the second Bangladesh batsman after Shahriar Nafees to hit two ODI centuries in a row. This century of Mahmudullah’s however was faster than his 103 against England in Adelaide when his strike-rated hovered in the mid-70s. Here, he started off at the same rate but when reached his hundred off 112 balls and kept rapidly increasing his strike-rate. His three sixes came through a sweep off Daniel Vettori and slogs over square-leg and midwicket off Mitchell McClenaghan and Grant Eliott.
