New Zealand captain Kane Williamson has tipped his hat to the record-breaking Bangladesh partnership that eliminated the Black Caps from the Champions Trophy.
A shock five-wicket loss in Cardiff means New Zealand finish the tournament without a win, having had victory stolen from them by a magnificent 224-run stand for the fifth wicket between Shakib Al Hasan (114) and Mahmudullah (102 not out).
The highest one-day partnership in Bangladesh's history rescued a run chase which was teetering at 4-33 in pursuit of New Zealand's 265.
Black Caps seamer Tim Southee (3-45) knocked over the top order before the 35-over stand was ended just prior to Bangladesh reaching 5-268 with 16 balls to spare.
New Zealand's innings was built around half-centuries to in-form Williamson (57) and Ross Taylor (63) but the batsmen below failed to accelerate over the closing stages.
