Day seven of the Cricket World Cup is in the books. Here's everything you need to know from the overnight action.

Bizarre victory

New Zealand have beaten Bangladesh – conquerors of underperforming South Africa in their last game - by two wickets, to stay on track in their cricket World Cup hunt.

It was a bizarre victory in a wonderful atmosphere at The Oval in London.​

After Ross Taylor and Kane Williamson appeared to have New Zealand cruising to victory chasing a low target of 245, a flurry of poor shots from the Kiwis let Bangladesh back into the game.​


It turned into a thrilling finish. But Mohammad Saifuddin bowled an inexplicable bouncer wide to Lockie Ferguson in what should have been the final ball of the 47th over, followed by another wide down leg side, and Ferguson then squeezed a boundary to third man to level the scores.

Mitchell Santner delivered the final blow in the next over.​

'Got across the line'

Captain Kane Williamson reckoned it was "nice to get across the line".​

"The first half was outstanding, the fielding was excellent," he said.

"It was not the most clinical effort with the bat...a few soft dismissals but a good experience to have in this tournament.

"Santner was outstanding with the ball, we were expecting a little more pace from the surface but the guys adjusted to build pressure."​

Close call

Technology revealed a brilliant piece of umpiring from Aussie Paul Reiffel as Bangladesh threatened to pull off a miraculous win.​


With New Zealand needing 23 runs from 33 balls, and only three wickets left, Mohammad Saifuddin looked for all the world to have trapped Mitchell Santner lbw.

Bangladesh appeared bewildered by the not out call from Reiffel, and they were out of reviews.​

But replays showed that the ball had officially pitched outside leg stump by the smallest of whiskers, even though a significant part of it was in line with the stumps.

New Zealand had a review left and would surely have used it to rescue Santner if needed.

'Full-on crisis'

Proteas in "full-on crisis"…that was the reaction by South Africa's Supersport, after the six wicket loss to India in cricket's World Cup.

"South Africa face a difficult week of soul-searching before they meet the West Indies at the same venue next week," it reported, after a third successive defeat by the notorious World Cup chokers.​

India on the board

Indian captain Virat Kohli said "my hands were buzzing" after he caught Quinton de Kock off Jasprit Bumrah's bowling.​

"That's how quick he's bowling," said the great Indian captain.​

South African captain Faf du Plessis was all class as his team just about plummeted out of World Cup contention after three games.​

"India were magnificent on a difficult pitch," he said.​
