18:00 hrs: BAN U19 need a partnership to steady the ship following an early wicket. As for NZ U19, this is the perfect moment to up the ante and scalp couple of wickets and put BAN U19 on the back-foot.
17:53 hrs: OUT! NZ U19 have picked up their first wicket of the innings as Kristian Clarke gets rid of Tanzid Hasan, who top-edged the delivery into the hands of David Hancock near third man. Mahmudul Hasan Joy comes out to bat for BAN U19.

17:38 hrs: BAN U19 are off to a steady start with Emon and Hasan displaying cautious cricket. NZ U19 have conceded just 8 runs in the opening two overs but its wickets that they need to stop BAN U19 chasing the target.
17:30 hrs: NZ U19 players are walking out on the pitch as we are about to get underway with the Bangladesh chase. Parvez Hossain Emon and Tanzid Hasan are opening for BAN U19 while Joey Field will bowl the first over for BAN U19.
17:15 hrs: The NZ U19 bowlers will look to pick up early wickets to ensure BAN U19 does not get off to a quick start in what is going to be a tense chase on a difficult surface.
17:04 hrs: The BAN U19 players will be feeling a little unhappy because they had NZ U19 under the cosh completely. But for them to eventually post 211 means it is the Kiwis who will come out buoyant onto the field.
17:01 hrs: This is a great comeback by NZ U19. The Ban U19 spinners had put their team in complete control but Wheeler-Greenall played a classic counter-attacking innings to take the Kiwis to a fighting total.
16:53 hrs: Wheeler-Greenall! Fantastic display from the youngster to hammer a six and a four in the first three balls of the over. On a surface which has stumbled the batsmen, this young man an unbeaten 75 runs in 82 balls to help his side cross the 200-run mark. End of 50 overs, New Zealand 210/6. Bangladesh need 211 to reach final.
16:50 hrs: Final over! New Zealand have crossed the 190-run mark. With two wickets in hand, can they cross the 200 run-mark?
16:45 hrs: OUT! A six and a four off the first two balls in the 48th over and Joey Field lost his concentration and gave away his precious wicket. NZ 186/8
16:42 hrs: Excellent over! Tanzim Hasan Sakib gives away just 4 runs in his over. This is a hard pitch to bat on. In the first ball of the 48th over, Field hammers a six off Shoriful Islam. If NZ reach 200, this will be a tough ask for Bangladesh.
16:32 hrs: Bowled! Full, straight, you miss, I hit! A fuller length delivery from Shoriful around leg stump, Kristian Clarke goes for the big slog and ends up missing it altogether.
16:26 hrs: Fifty for Wheeler-Greenall! What a way to get your fifty. A slog sweep throught the mid wicket region for a boundary. This has been a super innings from Wheeler, his second of the U19 World Cup after the first one against Sri Lanka in the group stage.
16:23 hrs: What a shot by Wheeler-Greenall. He gets across his stumps and scoops the full toss over the short-fine leg fielder for a six. If NZ U19 have to cross 200 then Greenald has to stay there and do the bulk of the scoring.
16:16 hrs: Bowled! Middle stump knocked over. Quinn Sunde goes for 1. A flighted delivery from Morad, Sunde come down the track but instead of playing it straight, he swings across and ends up playing all around it. Morad gets his second wicket and all of a sudden NZ U19 are in danger of getting bowled out.
16:13 hrs: Partnership broken! LBW! Shoriful has got the breakthrough for Bangladesh. Not the best of deliveries from the left-arm seamer. It was a full toss on leg stump but Lidstone (44) missed it altogether, easy decision for the umpire. NZ U19 have lost half their side for 141.
16:10 hrs: Obstructing the field?The umpires say no. In his attempt to slide bat back into the crease while completing the single, Lidstone just pushed the ball away with his bat. The Bangladesh fielders appealed and the umpires sent it upstairs with the soft signal of a not out and third umpire didn’t find anything to overrule it.
15:59 hrs: 50 partnership! A single from Greenall down to long off and that brings up the fifty partnership between Greenall and Lidstone. It has been a good effort from the two right-handers but they have to get a move on.
15:52 hrs: Two tight overs! 5 runs from the last two overs. This New Zealand innings is going nowhere. It has been a great struggle for W-Greenall and Lidstone in the middle. They at least need a 100 more runs to make this a competitive total.
15:40 hrs: Brilliant over from Sakib! He beat the bat on two occasions and troubled and almost the wicket of Wheeler-Greenall. If it wasn’t for those two wides, this could well have been termed as the best over of this innings so far.
15:34 hrs:100 up for NZ U19! Lidstone takes a single with a push to long on and that brings up the 100 for New Zealand U 19 in 31.1 overs. 19 overs to go, New Zealand need a move on and looks like Greenall is the man to take the attack to the Bangladesh spinners.
15:26 hrs: Two fours! Wheeler-Greenall getting into the act. He decides to take on Bangladesh’s best spinner Rakibul and gets the reward. Good over for NZ U19, 11 runs from it.
15:14 hrs: Clean bowled! The left arm spinner Morad has struck for BAN U19. Fabulous bowling and the NZ U19 captain Jesse Tashkoff is clean bowled. He misses that flighted delivery completely and the Kiwis are in a hole now.
15:07 hrs: Close chance! A stumping chance there. Morad beats the bat again and NZ U19 batsman was lucky to have dragged his foot behind the popping crease. The BAN U19 spinners continue to threaten.
15:02 hrs: Tashkoff is the new man out and he has played a few adventurous shots. I think the NZ U19 batsmen need to realise that the BAN U19 spinner are getting a lot of purchase from the pitch and they need to attack them in order thwart their threat and also get quick runs.
14: 54 hrs: Shamim strikes again: The off spinner Shamim has struck again, Lellman has to go for 24 after a brilliant catch by Mahmudul Hasan Joy.
14: 48 hrs: Fifty up for NZ U19: The 50 is up for the NZ U19 in the 19th over. It has been a very slow start for the Kiwi colts as BAN U19 spinners have tightened the screws on them. This pertnership needs to continue.
14:44 hrs: Morad introduced into attack: Another left arm spinner into the attack for BAN U19 and he hits the pads with the very first delivery. That one was going down the leg side and the umpire gave it a not out. The BAN U19 spinners are keeping it very tight.
14:38 hrs: Off-spinner Shamim comes back into the attack. The BAN U19 has realised that there is turn on offer and the New Zealand batters are struggling against spin. Can Shamim weave is magic?
14:33 hrs: Swing from Sakib! Some Definite away movement there from Sakib and he almost got the outside edge off Lidstone’s bat there. The New Zealand U19 batsmen need to put their head down and whether this storm.
14:29 hrs: Rakibul giving troubles to the New Zealand batters. He is asking questions with every ball and no wonder the captain has given him two slips.
14:20 hrs: Rakibul strikes! White goes for the drive but ends up getting a faint tickle to the keeper, NZ U19 have lost their second wicket. A tossed up delivery inviting the drive and White took the bait, Rakibul is over the moon. Bangladesh U19 on top.
14:12 hrs:Grip and turn! Left-arm spinner Rakibul Hasan starts off with a maiden but what would excite the Bangladesh side, is that he got two of his balls to grip and turn in the very first of over. End of the first powerplay, New Zealand U19 have reached 26 for 1.
14:07 hrs: Bowling change! First bowling change for Bangladesh. Right-arm medium pacer Tanzim Hasan Sakib replaces off-spinner Shamim, after he went for two fours in the previous over.
14:00 hrs: FOUR! First bad delivery that Shoriful has bowled today and White takes full advantage of it. A juicy half volley on the pads and White flicks through the gap to collect a boundary. New Zealand are slowing regaining composure.
13:56 hrs: Consecutive fours! Lellman gets off the mark with a boundary on his 9th delivery and then follows it up another booming cover drive, just what the doctor ordered for New Zealand after a sedate start. Off-spinner Shamim has now got something to think about.
13:52 hrs: Left-arm medium pacer Shoriful Islam concedes the first run off the bat on his 18th delivery. Shoriful had bowled consecutive maidens to start with.
13:47 hrs:Two consecutive maidens, Bangladesh bowlers are on top right now. Shoriful and Shamim have been on the money, providing no room whatsoever to Lellman and White.
13:40 hrs: Bangladesh strike early! Off-spinner Shamim Hossain gets a wicket in his first over and it’s that of the danger man Rhys Mariu. A tossed up wide delivery and it kept drifting away from the right-hander, Mariu had to reach out for the drive, didn’t cover for the drift and gets a thick edge, simple catch for Tanzid at slip..
