Bangladesh tour of New Zealand, 2nd ODI: New Zealand v Bangladesh at Dunedin, Feb 8, 2010
New Zealand won by 5 wickets (with 135 balls remaining)
8 February 2010 (50-over match)

Hello and welcome to the University Oval in Dunedin where we are greeted by a lovely sunny day and headed for a high of 20 degrees C.

Daniel Vettori has won the toss and New Zealand will bowl first in what seem to be good conditions for batting. This is the first ODI at the University Oval and going by previous experience at the University Oval, the team batting second certainly has the better conditions to bat in.

New Zealand make just the one change with Ian Butler replacing Tim Southee and Bangladesh have made two changes with Aftab Ahmed and Rubel Hossain coming in for Raqibul Hasan and Nazmul Hossain.

This match shapes as a very important match for Bangladesh who need to show more application to go with the flair that we saw during the 71 run opening stand between Tamim and Imrul at Napier.

The fist ODI showed they are capable of producing some individual brilliance in the field, with Ashraful's run out of Brendon McCullum, and they will need to show the same intensity and concentration in the park today if they are to restrict this confident New Zealand side.

0.1

Tuffey to Tamim Iqbal, 1 run, Tuffey ambles in for the first ball of the match and starts off nicely back of a length but just too straight and Tamim works it into mid wicket and they take off for the single to get underway
