4:24pm And that is all from our ball-by-ball coverage. See you at the next game!

Tom Latham: It was a game full of debutants and milestones, nice to get the win today. In ODIs we haven't played in a while, it was about winning the toss and setting the tone. As a bowling unit, it was clinical. When you win it doesn't really matter how you win, for us to chase 132 in 20 overs was awesome. [For Guptill] to break the back of the chase was awesome. Another outstanding crowd here, hopefully we can get the same in Christchurch.

Tamim Iqbal: I thought there were too many soft dismissals. No doubt they bowled really well, but we have ourselves to blame. We take pride in our batting and that was nowhere near enough. We had a couple of days here, I cannot complain about our preparation. It's not new to us, we know what to expect. And we hope we put up a better performance. [Mahedi] especially the first shot was nice, I would have loved for him to continue. He bowled well today, he showed character.

Trent Boult is the Player of the Match.

4:16pm A comfortable outing for the home team. Their start to the chase was as rollicking as Bangladesh's was laboured earlier today. Guptill going berserk for a 19-ball 38, and Nicholls took them through with a typically calm 49. All set up by a brilliant bowling effort that has given Bangladesh a lot to think about in terms of their approach in these conditions.

Hasan Mahmud to Conway, OUT

chipped to deep square.Looks to walk down at this length ball and loft it over the infield. Is forced to reach out and closes the face as a result. Floats harmlessly out to Mahmudullah and he takes it. Scratchy from Conway today, not one of his better days
