That's it from another rain hit one-day international right before the World cup! Ninaad Dixit here signing off on behalf of my co-commentator Arijit Kundu and scorer/analyst Zeeshan Naiyer. Stay tuned for more cricketing action from around the world.
It all started with Bangladesh skipper Litton Das winning the toss and deciding to field first. The New Zealand openers Finn Allen and Will Young looked for a cautious start as Mustafizur Rahman and Tanzid Hasan Sakib tried to keep things tight and challenged the edges of the bat.

The rain showed up inside the first powerplay, enforcing the game to be a shortened one: 42 overs per side. Right after the break, the pair of Nasum Ahmed and Mustafizur Rahman operated in tandem from either end with the fizz taking a couple of wickets.

The left-arm spinner Nasum got enormous turn and bounce regularly and bowled consecutive maiden overs. This exerted the pressure and Mustafizur earned the dividends by luring the batters outside the off stump channel. This saw the fall of Allen and Chad Bowes as the scoreboard saw 16-2 at 8.2 overs.

Right after, Young and Henry Nicholls stepped up and worked hard to steady the ship. Although Young had less control initially, he gradually improved and got the runs. The duo eased off the pressure and glued a 97 runs stand for the third wicket.

Young paced his innings slowly and reached his 4th ODI half century in the process. Mustafizur was recalled in the attack as Bangladesh looked for wickets and chipped straightaway removing Nicholls for 44, Young departed soon with Nasum claiming his first wicket.

The left arm spinner had more to rejoice as the Bangla tigers successfully referred a decision against Rachin Ravindra to dismiss the allrounder for a silver duck. Co-incidentally, Bangladesh had failed to refer another LBW decision earlier in the innings which would have got them a breakthrough.

Cole McConchie joined Tom Blundell at the crease and with both the batters unbeaten on 8, the rain appeared once more and after a long break of close to 2 hours, the umpires decided to call it a day with the conditions also declining.

The teams will now see each other in the 2nd ODI this Saturday at the same venue.
7:56 PM IST, 8:26 PM Local Time: The match has been called-off! After a long wait, with the rain seeming unstoppable and lots of puddles being formed on the field, the umpires have decided to call it a day.
The cut-off time for a 20-over per side affair is 8:36 PM IST, 9:06 PM Local Time.
7:27 PM IST, 7:57 PM Local Time: The rain has got heavier at the moment. Lightning has accompanied as well. Looks like the stadium floodlights have been turned off due to the lightning. No good news!! Seems like we are in for a long delay.
6:52 PM IST, 7:22 PM Local Time: The covers are coming back. Rain is playing hide and seek with everyone at Shere Bangla Stadium. Tough times continue. Seems like this innings has already seen its climax. We shall wait for the official words and bring all the updates. But for that, the rain needs to hold.
6:46 PM IST, 7:16 PM Local Time: The umpires appear in the centre for an inspection. Good news for the fans - no umbrellas in sight! The head groundsman also joins the conversation. The two umpires head towards Bangladesh and New Zealand camps respectively to spread the news post the inspection. S.I.S. Saikat is in conversation with Lockie Ferguson whereas Nitin Menon has walked towards the Bangladesh dressing room.
6:37 PM IST, 7:07 PM Local Time: The rain has stopped and it's time to vanish the covers.
6:28 PM IST, 6:58 PM Local Time: Well!! The rain is back once again. The groundsmen are pulling the covers back. This has been a tiring outing for the players, officials, and the groundstaff. Just as we were about to kickoff with the resumption, the rain god showed up.
6:17 PM IST, 6:47 PM Local Time: The covers have been removed in haste. Seems like it was a passing shower. The two on-field umpires enter the field and are having a chat with the head curator and reserve umpire. The stumps are being put back. Positive signs all around. The match resumes at 6:30 PM IST, 7:00 PM Local Time. No Overs lost!!
6:10 PM IST, 6:40 PM Local Time: The rain is back and forcing the players and officials on the ground to rush back to take shade. The groundsmen rush into the field with the covers and lay them over the strip.
