New Zealand 275 for 5 (Latham 110*, Conway 72, Mahedi 2-42) beat Bangladesh 271 for 6 (Iqbal 78, Mithun 73*, Santner 2-51) by five wickets

Stand-in captain Tom Latham‘s fifth ODI hundred and Devon Conway‘s maiden ODI half-century helped New Zealand beat Bangladesh by five wickets at the Hagley Oval and seal the three-match ODI series with a game to spare. Bangladesh put in a much-improved performance, both with bat and ball, but their fielding let them down as New Zealand chased down the target with ten balls to spare.

Earlier, contrasting half-centuries from Tamim Iqbal and Mohammad Mithun steered Bangladesh to 271 for 6. Iqbal started cautiously, weathering swing, seam and bounce against the new ball to lay the platform with his 78 off 108 balls. Mithun, batting at No. 5 and coming to the crease in the 31st over, was aggressive right from the start. His unbeaten 73 off 57 balls was instrumental in Bangladesh scoring 88 in the last ten overs.
