During the course of New Zealand’s innings, apart from his bowling heroics, Bangladesh’s ace pacer Mustafizur Rahman earned rich praise for his terrific catch he took off his own bowling.

It was during the 16th over of the innings Mustafizur bowled his usual cutter, batsman McConchie struggled to time the ball and chipped the delivery back to the bowler. The left-arm pacer in his followthrough then grabbed a brilliant catch to send the batsman packing.
