Bangladesh vs. New Zealand, 2nd ODI: Scorecard, Recap and More from Dhaka

Mark PattersonUK Staff WriterOctober 31, 2013

Bangladesh wrapped up the ODI series with a second straight win over New Zealand in Dhaka.

The hosts scored 247 batting first, using one fewer than their allocated 50 overs before they were bowled out.

However, the Tigers responded with the ball, dismissing New Zealand for 207 to seal a 40-run victory.

They now have an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.

Tamim Iqbal top-scored in the Bangladesh innings—his 58 supported by lots of starts and cameos from his teammates lower down the order.

New Zealand, for whom Jimmy Neesham and Corey Anderson both claimed four wickets, would have been optimistic they had a chaseable score.

Ross Taylor, who managed the Black Caps' best score, put up 45 from all of 82 deliveries—epitomising the struggles the tourists had.

By the time they had been reduced to 157 for eight, the game was almost up, and Nathan McCullum and Kyle Mills' cameos were enough only to reduce the margin of defeat.
