Nurul was oblivious to his team’s celebrations after Daryl Mitchell reverse-swept a delivery from Mehidy Hasan Miraz to Bangladesh captain Najmul Hossain Shanto at first slip. Certain that the ball had flicked the glove along the way to the fielder, Shanto went up in celebration immediately and was soon joined by his teammates. Nurul, unaware of his teammates’ celebrations, went down on his knees and continued appealing.
Meanwhile, umpire Rod Tucker remained unmoved, ruling Mitchell not out. Shanto reviewed, and UltraEdge confirmed a spike as the ball passed Mitchell’s gloves. Mitchell was eventually ruled out for a 36-ball 19, reducing New Zealand to 69-6. The Kiwis ended up winning by four wickets to level the series 1-1.
