New Zealand captain Kane Willaimson

Every game is going to be tough. It was a good effort from our boys in this game. We got the runs on the board and then bowled well. They (Boult and Southee) are world-class bowlers. We will go horses for courses again in Delhi. Every team wants to win the World Cup. We got to keep improving as a team.


Bangladesh capatin Mashrafe Mortaza

"It was very tough but we can take some positives, like Mustafizur's five-for today. Batting was really difficult. Probably if it was around 120 we would have had a chance. His cutter is very difficult to pick. Our batters also struggle in the nets. Hopefully he will play for 10 more years for Bangladesh. They are a tough side. I just want to wish them good luck for the semis."


Man of the Match Kane Williamson

It was pretty tough, it spun and kept low, batting in the first six was nice but it got a lot tougher," he says. "I think it was a good batting effort all around. Guys came in and played good cameos. It's very tough, going into each game it's important to read the wicket and opposition as best you can and pick the best team accordingly.


New Zealand captain Kane Williamson's knock of 42 helps him bag the man of the match award.
