Trent Boult | Player of the Match: Obviously nice to get over the line and start the series nicely.

It is nice coming down here and playing one-day cricket, nice to have a good crowd in and they can now go enjoy their Saturday evening.

Bangladesh have been annihilated. Even that would be an understatement. If the New Zealand bowlers found them wanting in the batting department, the batters ensured the target was also short lived. The fielding also didn't look that great for the tourists. Boult did his thing with the new ball and the support was also wonderful as every bowler hit the right chord. Bangladesh ambled to 131 and the hosts took no time to chase it down. A Guptill whirlwind at the top helped. New Zealand might be without some of their top players but they are still a force at home. Bangladesh have been swatted away but they would be hurting and hoping to bounce back. That is it for the day, we will come back with more cricketing action. Cya!
