First one-day international At Christchurch, December 26, 2016. New Zealand won by 77 runs. ‡New Zealand 341-7 (50 overs) (T. W. M. Latham 137, C. Munro 87; Shakib Al Hasan 3-69); Bangladesh 264 (44.5 overs) (Shakib Al Hasan 59, Mosaddek Hossain 50*; L. H. Ferguson 3-54, J. D. S. Neesham 3-36). MoM: T. W. M. Latham.
At 158-4, New Zealand weren't running away with it, until Tom Latham and Colin Munro - who each hit four sixes on their way to personal-bests - doubled the score. They finished with 341-7, a joint ground record (matching Scotland against the Netherlands in a World Cup qualifier in 2013-14), and the highest in matches between the sides. Despite the daunting target, Bangladeshi fans chanted, waved flags and raised a stuffed tiger. But after Jimmy Neesham removed three of the top four, they looked in trouble. Still, Shakib Al Hasan's swift 59 gave Bangladesh a foothold, and there was a glimmer until Mushfiqur Rahim strained a hamstring and retired hurt on 41. That ended a seventh-wicket partnership of 52 with Mosaddek Hossain, who continued to an ODI-best 50* from 44 balls.
