Bangladesh win ODI series against Kiwis

2013-11-01 00:00

BANGLADESH clinched the series when they beat New Zealand by 40 runs in the second one-day international in Dhaka yesterday.

The visitors were bowled out for 207 to give the Tigers an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series, at the Sher-e Bangla National stadium.

Much like the hosts, the Kiwis failed to convert, with seven of their batsmen hitting double figures. Ross Taylor top-scored with 45 runs from 82 balls.

However, unlike the hosts, the tourists struggled to score at a decent run-rate with only Nathan McCullum and Kyle Millis coming in at number nine and 10 striking above 100%.

Ultimately this would lead to their downfall with the lower-order trying to up the run rate.

Mashrafe Mortaza and Sohag Gazi picked up three wickets apiece.

Earlier, Bangladesh made 247 all out from 49 overs after winning the toss and opting to bat first.
