Toss New Zealand chose to bat v BangladeshLive scorecard and ball-by-ball details
Kane Williamson, the New Zealand captain, decided to bat in the first ODI against Bangladesh at Hagley Oval. He said he wanted to harness scoreboard pressure in the second half with a three-man pace attack, Tim Southee, Trent Boult and Lockie Ferguson.
The big news for Bangladesh was the return of Mustafizur Rahman, playing his first international match since March. Soumya Sarkar also came back, since he was dropped against England in October. Therefore there was no ODI debut for Tanbir Hayder or Mehedi Hasan and no place for seamers Rubel Hossain and Subashis Roy.
Neil Broom found a place in the New Zealand ODI side for the first time in more than six years. In 2015-16, he topped the run charts in the List A competition, the Ford Trophy, scoring 508 runs in nine matches with three centuries and two fifties.
There was, however, no place for Matt Henry and Colin de Grandhomme.
