Bangladesh once again squandered the early advantage in the match. They reduced New Zealand to 57 for 3 within 11 overs, but their sloppy fielding, for the second successive game, let New Zealand off the hook and post a mammoth total in the end.
Devon Conway was excellent right through his innings as Daryl Mitchell and they added 159 runs for the fifth wicket which turned the game on its head. Both batsmen brought up their maiden ODI hundreds to haul New Zealand past 300.
It was just another terrible day at the office for Bangladesh fielders. They were sloppy all through the innings and let quite a few easy chances go begging.
Mushfiqur Rahim once again missed a catch off Taskin though that didn't cost much eventually. But his poor display of wicketkeeping caught eyes.
New Zealand bagged 107 runs in the last 10 overs, and to be precise, 65 in the last 5.
Bangladesh bowlers, especially the pacers, looked like they mean business early in the innings but completely lost their way towards the end.
Rubel Hossain was the pick of the bowler. He picked 3 wickets but was a touch expensive as he gave away 70 runs from his 10 overs. Taskin Ahmed looked in fine shape throughout his bowling and seemed to be the one to cause troubles.
Soumya Sarkar did a decent job with the ball in hand as he picked up a wicket for 37 runs off his 8 overs.
Earlier, New Zealand won the toss and elected to bat first.
