Latest News Ad: A Unique English Grammar, a most useful language book containing almost all ground rules of English, is available with the writer (mobile: 01779477091).                    Make is followed by bare infinitive in active voice but to-infinitive in passive voice: We made him do it. He was made to do it.                    English Language Tips 2: Write `law-and-order situation`, NOT `law and order situation`, When you write simply `law land order`, there is no need for using hyphen, as there is no need to make it a compound word. In the first instance, law-and-order is made into a compound word to create an adjective to qulify the noun situation. In the second, the phrase law and order is not followed by any such NP and so you need not use such hyphenated compound as adjective.                    English Language Tips 1: Write `adviser to the prime minister`, NOT `adviser of the prime minister`.                    Write `adviser of the government`, NOT `adviser to the government`.

 BD wins against NZ with Shakib-Mahmudullah double-ton partnership

Bangladesh won against New Zealand riding on a `brilliant` simultaneous double-century partnership between Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmudullah Riyadh in the ICC Champions Trophy tournament in England Friday.

Commentators were all praise, describing it as a record partnership of the tournament as the two ace cricketers quick-fired towards the team target of 266 and, at one stage, both stood on 98 amid thrills reigning supreme over the stadium.

Shakib advanced one step onto 99, and then leapfrogged the magic figure 100 with a six. With blitzkriegs he then moved forward intil given a bold-out on 114. Pairing with Mosaddeq, he made his ton with a four. 

It then took no time for the Tigers to romp home, with five wickets in hand.

 The Tigers rode on a record 224-run partnership between Shakib and Mahmudullah to overhaul the target of 266 with 16 balls in hand in the Group-A game in Cardiff.

Shakib smashed his seventh ODI century on way to a swashbuckling 114 while his partner was unbeaten on 102.

The victory, which knocked the Black Caps out of the tournament, came 12 years after Bangladesh had shocked Australia here at Sophia Gardens on June 15, 2005.

The Tigers will go through to the semi-finals with just one win in the group stages if England beat Australia at Edgbaston on Saturday or if the game is a washout.

Shakib and Mahmudullah helped the team survive a shock top-order collapse losing three for 12 inside the 5th over.

Bangladesh’s batting had begun in the worst possible fashion when a rampaging Tim Southee ripped out the top order with a three-wicket haul.

He struck with his second ball to remove in-form Tamim Iqball who played across a swinging delivery for 0. He then trapped Soumya Sarker (3) and had Sabbir Rahman (8) edge to the wicketkeeper.

And when birthday boy Mushfiqur Rahim (14) lost his stumps, Bangladesh’s prospect appeared bleak with not too many top-class batsmen to follow.

But Shakib and Mahmudullah scripted an epic with the highest stand for Bangladesh for any wicket in all ODIs, and the highest fifth-wicket stand in Champions Trophy.

It was only the second time two Bangladesh batsmen scored hundreds in the same ODI innings  - Tamim and Mushfiqur did so against Pakistan in Mirpur in 2015.

The Black Caps won the toss and elected to bat after a delayed start due to a wet field in the crucial Group- A game.

They rode on Ross Taylor’s 63 and Captain Kane Williamson’s 57, his third consecutive fifty, to finish on 265 for 8.

Offspinner Mosaddek Hossain took 3 for 13 in 3 overs, best bowling figures by a Bangladeshi in Champions Trophy history, to make sure the Kiwis did not take the game beyond.

New Zealand looked set for a strong finish but Mashrafe Bin Mortaza brought Mosaddek in the 42nd over.

The move paid off as he claimed the big wickets of Neil Broom, Corey Anderson and James Neesham.

They scored only 62 runs in the final 10 overs and lost 4 wickets in the face of accurate bowling and brilliant captaincy by Mashrafe.

Taylor and Williamson paired for a 83-run stand to raise hopes of taking their team close to 300. But the captain’s gritty 69-ball innings ended when he got run out in a mix-up against the run of play. 

Neil Broom (36) then added 49 runs with Taylor whose dismissal derailed the New Zealand innings.

They scored only 62 runs in the final 10 overs losing 4 wickets in the face of accurate bowling and brilliant captaincy by Mashrafe, allowing Bangladesh to claw their way back into the game.

Taskin finished 2 for 43 in his 8 overs while Rubel and Mustafizur took one apiece.
