Mahmudullah departs to leave Tigers on brink of defeat
Bangladesh batter Mahmudullah Riyad's 76-ball 49-run knock saw him just one run away from reaching 5,000 ODI runs which would've made him only the fourth Bangladesh batter to achieve the feat but the 37-year-old, who held the key in Bangladesh chasing down New Zealand's 254, got dismissed in the 36th over to leave the Tigers at 149 for seven.
Mahmudullah got dismissed on a delivery that had no merit. A short ball from Cole McConchie that tuned down the leg side had Mahmudullah reach for it from afar. He could've hit it over the fielder at short-fine leg or even hit it for a six but he could only manage to give Finn Allen a catching practice.
One record that he was able to reach was that he became the fourth Bangladesh batter to score 10,000 runs combining the three formats.
