World Cup Cricket 2007: Bangladesh bowling line show a good starts

In the first worm up match of the World Cup cricket Bangladesh stopped 224 in 45 over. So it is a very good start for Bangladesh. I think in World cup Cricket tournament it will increase their mentally strength.

New Zealand failed to impress against Bangladesh and were bowled out for 224 in 45 overs during their first warm up match of the World Cup at Barbados on Tuesday.

Opting to bat first, the Kiwis made an inauspicious beginning as captain Stephen Flemming perished for a duck.

With Ross Taylor, Scot Styris and Peter Fulton failing to contribute substantially in the middle overs, it was left to New Zealand’s saviour Jacob Oram -- who continues to play with an injured finger—to do the resurrection job.

Oram, who shone with the bat during the CB Series in Australia, produced a precious 88 off 107 balls while Brandon McCullum made 46 to push the total past 200.

For Bangladesh, Mashrafe Mortaza claimed 3 for 22 and Abdur Razzak picked 4 for 26.
