Bangladesh script first overseas ODI win over New Zealand

Mushfiqur Rahim and Shakib Al Hasan were batting on three and four respectively after Sabbir and Tamim each hit 65.

Latham was dropped off the third ball of the innings, before he had even opened what was eventually a costly account, when the returning Nasir Hossain dropped an utterly simple sitter at square leg off Mashrafe's bowling.

Opting to bowl first, Bangladesh made an early breakthrough as Mustafizur Rahman dismissed opener Luke Ronchi for just two runs.

New Zealand have looked pretty good in this tri-series, easing past Ireland in a couple of matches, while also dispatching Bangladesh in their earlier game. They were 156 for the loss of one wicket at one stage before Bangladesh pulled things back.

An unbeaten 72-run stand between Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah ensured that they do not lose way and win the one-day global though the win could not give them the tri-series title. Bangladesh, superior to Ireland but short of the standards set by New Zealand, will want to sign off with a win at the Clontarf Cricket Club in Dublin to add to its confidence.

New Zealand, meanwhile, will look to continue their dominance over lower-ranked sides.

When the Black Caps were 208-3 in the 39th over they were on course for a total of 300, but the dismissal of the risky Corey Anderson triggered a collapse - they lost three wickets for two runs in 11 balls - and it needed Ross Taylor to hold the innings together.

That is what transpired, thanks mainly to the death bowling of Rubel Hossain, Mustafizur and Shakib and a tightening up in the fielding.

They play Australia in the opening match of their Champions Trophy at the same ground on Friday 2 June.

New Zealand have played three and won three at the tournament - meaning they have already won it. The veteran finished unbeaten on a 56-ball 60 as New Zealand reached 270 for eight.

Corey Anderson (24) struggled for timing and none of the remaining batsmen managed double figures as the innings conjured just 103 runs from the last 20 overs.
