A disappointing performance from the Bangladeshi's, backing up their poor performance in the T20I in Hamilton on Wednesday night.

Jacob Oram (83) and Neil Broom's (71) quickfire record partnership of 123 for the seventh wicket really set the game up for New Zealand after Ingram (69) and Taylor (51) gave their wickets away.

Shahadat and Naeem bowled well at times for Bangladesh but on the whole, their bowlers struggled for consistency.

Bangladesh's batting started with a hiss and a roar with Tamim and Imrul adding 71 for the first wicket, however that was the end of the fireworks and when Tamim fell for 62 with the score at 119, the chase was effectively over.

McKay (two for 40) was promising with the ball on debut but it was Vettori's guile which tore the heart out of the chase with three for 33 and Guptill mopped up the tail with two for seven.

Jacob Oram is named Man of the Match for a magnificent 83 off just 40 balls with eight fours and five sixes, as well as two for 33 off nine overs.

The focus now switches to Dunedin where the 2nd ODI takes place on Monday. Please join us again on Monday from 12pm NZDT or 2300 GMT (Sunday Feb 7). Thanks for joining me tonight. This is Marc Ellison signing off. Goodnight.
