New Zealand completed their tour of Bangladesh with a 15-run victory in the one-off Twenty20 International in Mirpur.

Replying to the Black Caps’ 204 at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, the hosts could only make 189 for nine.

T20 debutant Anton Devcich gave NZ a blistering start with 59 off 31 balls, including 10 fours and a six. When he departed in the 10th over, the hosts had reached 83 for two.

The tourists had lost Hamish Rutherford earlier for 17, but Ross Taylor and Colin Munro put on 93 for the third wicket with the latter taking the lead.

The South African born left-hander smashed his highest T20 International score in entertaining fashion.

Bangladesh needed to score at in excess of 10 runs per over but lost three wickets in the opening two overs with Tim Southee removing openers Shamsur Rahman and Ziaur Rahman before Mitchell McClenaghan dismissed Mominul Haque.

Home captain Mushfiqur Rahim steadied the ship with 50 off 29 balls, and when he was removed at the end of the 11th over, Bangladesh were five wickets down and needed 89 from eight overs.

However, the lower order could not get the job done with Corey Anderson following up the wicket of Rahim by removing dangerman Mahmudullah for 34 in the penultimate over.

Bangladesh were 177 for eight and needed 28 from 10 balls with Southee picking up his third wicket in the final over to close out the victory.

It is a bright note for the Kiwis, who suffered a disappointing tour, having drawn both Tests before losing the one-day series 3-0.
