New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson said that he is happy to get over the line against Bangladesh despite not putting up a clinical effort in the middle during their second World Cup game at Oval on Wednesday.

Bangladesh almost snatched victory from the jaws of defeat today. They literally fought as if their life was dependent on it but Kiwis kept their nerve to earn a two wicket win to get their successive win in as many matches.

‘’Very nice to get across the line, I thought the first innings was outstanding. The fielding was brilliant throughout by both teams. We thought 250 could be a competitive score and we just needed to keep wickets in the hand,’’ said Williamson.

‘’It wasn't a clinical effort with the bat, but it was nice to get over the line. There were a few soft dismissals that we need to address. It was a great experience to have and these things happen and they go down the wire,’’ he said.

‘’It was nice to hold on as momentum shifts tend to happen in tournament cricket. I thought all the guys adopted to their role very well. We were expecting a lot more pace but it was on the slower side,’’ he said.

‘’Both teams had a similar kind of a approach today. It was one of those surfaces that produces great cricket. The guys on the sidelines who have a couple of niggles are improving, while the guys on the park are doing their job as well,’’ he concluded.
