Cricket news - Live Cricket Score: New Zealand vs Bangladesh, 3rd ODI, Dunedin

In Kane Williamson's absence, New Zealand are led by Tom Latham

James Neesham has just come to the crease and the entertainment has started already. He slams two sixes in an over off Mahmudullah.

WICKET! Ross Taylor's fine innings has come to an end. In a bid to go for the big shots, he has pulled one to the fielder at deep mid wicket. Rubel Hossain gets the breakthrough.

RECORD! In what has been a quintessential Ross Talor innings, the veteran batsman has brought up yet another half-century. However, it is after he moves to 51 that he gets a standing ovation from the crowd at the ground as he becomes the highest run-getter for New Zealand in ODIs, surpassing the record of Stephen Fleming. Is he New Zealand's finest ODI batsman?

Henry Nicholls throws it away! An innings where he had done so well to curb the temptation of hitting over the top, the southpaw eventually falls for it. Looking to slog sweep Mehidy Hasan from outside off, he gets the top edge to the fielder at deep mid wicket. The third wicket stand seperates just short of a century.

Ross Taylor has become only the second New Zealand batsman to register 8000 ODI runs when he cut Mashrafe Mortaza past the point region for a boundary. He is now only seven runs behind leader Stephen Fleming.

New Zealand have started to find boundaries more regularly now. Meanwhile, Nicholls has chugged along to his half-century. This hasn't been the most entertaining of partnerships but mighty effective, nonetheless.

Ross Taylor and Henry Nicholls have added a half-century stand. During the course of their partnership, they haven't gone on the attack and yet scored at a reasonably good rate.

WICKET! A series of dot deliveries and the boundaries drying up eventually left Martin Guptill frustrated. Looking to hit Mohammad Saifuddin out of the park, the opener gets caught by Tamim Iqbal who takes a superb catch in the deep. Saifuddin too strikes in his first over!

Yet another disappointing outing for Colin Munro. Gets trapped legbefore by Mashrafe Mortaza in the fifth over the innings. Meanwhile, the Bangladeshi skipper starts off his spell with a wicket-maiden.

Colin Munro and Martin Guptill have walked out to open the innings for New Zealand.

Bangladesh won the toss and elected to field. No surprise changes. For the hosts, skipper Kane Williamson is resting, allowing Colin Munro another chance to regain form.

Teams:

New Zealand (Playing XI): Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Henry Nicholls, Ross Taylor, Tom Latham(w/c), James Neesham, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Lockie Ferguson, Trent Boult
