Commentary (New Zealand 1st Innings)

That's it from us then. Do join us again for the final ODI on Sunday which happens to be a dead rubber now. It's a day game though. Until then, good bye and take care.

Sohag Gazi is the Man of the Match for his 3/34 in 10 overs and 26 runs off 24 balls with the bat.

An important 2-0 lead in the 3-match ODI series for Bangladesh. It was too much for New Zealand as their batsmen let them down once again against the Asian minnows. Taylor and Anderson tried to rebuild after the early loss but Bangladesh kept striking regularly. A good all round bowling effort from them. Mortaza and Gazi picked up three wickets each whereas Mominul Haque picked up the wickets of McCullum brothers at crucial stage.

Bangladesh have defeated New Zealand in their last six games and back to back series wins for them at home. In total, Bangladesh have won seven games against New Zealand and all have come at this venue. The Kiwis still don't have the answer against the Asian side. They kept Bangladesh to a decent total but it was a tough track to bat on as their batsmen couldn't do much.
