The veteran duo of Amy Satterthwaite and Suzie Bates sparkled with ball and bat individually to assist New Zealand with securing their first success of the 2022 home world cup. The hosts enlisted an agreeable nine-wicket prevail upon Bangladesh in the downpour impacted 27-over-a-side experience on Monday at the University Oval in Dunedin.

Be that as it may, a fast circle back of occasions, with the downpour yielding, permitted play to start.
With the danger of more downpour posing a potential threat, New Zealand chose for field on winning the throw. The outfield was lazy and wet, making it hard for the defenders to go around as well with respect to the bowlers to grasp the ball.
Exploiting the circumstances, Bangladesh got off to a solid beginning with openers Shamima Sultana and Fargana Hoque putting on a 59-run stand in 9.2 overs.

Mackay was at her typical best on the field, and affected two run outs contrary to the rules. Most altogether of Fargana, who was batting great on 52. She was scarcely a couple creeps out of her wrinkle in the wake of playing a forward drive back to the bowler, when Mackay gathered it and tossed it back on to the stumps to end a fine innings unexpectedly.
Bangladesh’s running was sufficiently slow to not exploit the wet outfield, which wasn’t permitting the New Zealand defenders to go around rapidly. Bangladesh dealt with a serious 140 for 8, yet battled to hold the New Zealand hitters in line.
Under cloudy circumstances, with the chance of another downpour spell finishing the challenge, New Zealand got rolling on a consistent note before Sophie Devine was tidied up on 14 by Salma Khatun in the seventh over. Be that as it may, the in-structure Amelia Kerr and old neighborhood saint Bates didn’t permit the guests to take control.
They squeezed hard in running and dismantled a few threes from tracking down a periodic limit. Without facing such a large number of challenges, Bates raised 28th 50 years, and before long, even went past 1000 runs in world cups. Bangladesh, notwithstanding their restrictions, stayed amazing in their endeavors on the field. Never however they had the option to disrupt the subsequent wicket pair of Kerr and Bates, who joined to fasten an unbeaten 108-run represent the subsequent wicket and help New Zealand to an agreeable success at the twentieth over mark
