Bangladesh lose T20 series after clean sweep in ODIs

Bangladesh have conceded a defeat in the second Twenty20 as New Zealand cruised to a comfortable home series victory with a brilliant fifty by Glenn Phillips.

The hosts scored 173 runs for 5 wickets in 17.5 Overs in the second T20 at McLean Park, Napier on Tuesday (March 30). But the target was reduced to 171 runs in 16 overs by DLS Method due to rain.

In reply, Bangladesh managed to score 142 runs by losing seven wickets in the allotted 16 overs and lost the match by 28 runs. As a result, New Zealand won the three-match series with remaining a match left.

For Bangladesh, Soumya Sarkar hit a quick innings of 51 runs off 27 balls while Mohammad Naim scored 38 runs.

In the first T20 against New Zealand, Bangladesh was defeated by 66 runs.
