Event:Bangladesh in New Zealand 2009/10

DateLine: 3rd February 2010


New Zealand cantered to an easy win over the lowly Bangladeshi side as the hosts won the only T20 International. The visitors were embarrassingly skittled out for pathetic 78 in 17.3 overs while the Kiwis in reply scored 79 for no loss in 8.2 overs.


Electing to bat first after winning the toss, the visitors never managed to get any sort of momentum into their innings. The visitors lost wickets regularly as the top-order folded to the seamers while the middle and the lower order fell to the spinners. Vettori was the main destroyer as he returned with figures 4-1-6-3. For the Bangladeshi side Raqibul Hasan top scored with a fighting 18.


New Zealand in reply was powered by McCullum's power-packed 56 and he was well supported by Ingram. The hosts reached the target in 8.2 overs without losing any wicket
