Wisden's review of the second ODI, New Zealand v Bangladesh, 2016-17

15-Apr-2017
Second one-day international At Nelson, December 29, 2016. New Zealand won by 67 runs. New Zealand 251 (50 overs) (N. T. Broom 109*; Mashrafe Mortaza 3-49); ‡Bangladesh 184 (42.4 overs) (Imrul Kayes 59; K. S. Williamson 3-22). MoM: N. T. Broom. ODI debuts: Nurul Hasan, Subashis Roy, Tanveer Haider (Bangladesh).
In his first series for more than six years, Neil Broom hit his maiden one-day international century, but regular wickets reduced New Zealand's throttle on their way to 251. Captain Mashrafe bin Mortaza led an excellent bowling effort, galloping to the crease as if it was the finishing post in the Melbourne Cup, and claiming 3-49. And, after he had criticised his team's lethargic fielding at Christchurch, they chased the ball with extra intent. Bangladesh looked poised for victory until Williamson's occasional off-spin accounted for three wickets in five overs. Earlier, he had helped run out Sabbir Rahman, who lost a race with Imrul Kayes for the same crease. That ended a 75-run second-wicket partnership and, from 105-1, Bangladesh capitulated for 184.
