New Zealand beat Bangladesh by four wickets in tri-nation ODI series

New Zealand beat Bangladesh by four wickets in tri-nation ODI series

Fast bowler Hamish Bennett relished a successful return to global cricket, after spearheading New Zealand to a comfortable four-wicket win over Bangladesh in Wednesday's ODI tri-series fixture in Dublin.

Chasing a total of 257/9, the Blackcaps lost wickets in regular intervals, but an 80-run stand for the fifth wicket between Neesham and Neil Broom, who scored 48, helped them get past the finishing line with four wickets and 15 balls to spare.

Sarkar had brought up his half-century at nearly a run a ball, but was snared by Ish Sodhi (2-40), making a mess of a sweep to offer a simple catch to Latham after hitting five boundaries.

Earlier, put into bat, Bangladesh made 257 for nine in their 50 overs.

Bayern deny report Kimmich to leave, takes legal action
Kimmich has made 38 appearances in all competitions this season under Ancelotti, including 18 as substitute. Kimmich turned 22 years of age earlier this week, and his contract at Bayern Munich lasts until 2020.

Fresh off an impressive Kiwi summer with the Wellington Firebirds, it was the former Timaru Boys' High School fast bowler's first match for the Black Caps in nearly three and a half years. If we're honest with ourselves, our fielding let us down a bit, and 20-30 runs went abegging.

Bangladesh's attack, however, will be bolstered by the return of skipper Mashrafe Bin Mortaza, who sat out the first game because of a one-match suspension picked up on the Sri Lanka tour for a slow over-rate. They have just the two points against their name after a washout game against Ireland.

Number seven batsman Mosaddek Hossain added a run-a-ball 41 to lead the Bangladesh side past 250.

The next match in the series is Ireland against Bangladesh at Malahide on Friday.
