Lockie Ferguson was the best of the New Zealand bowling attack, taking 3-43, while Todd Astle and James Neesham took two wickets each.

The Kiwis were largely unperturbed once they picked up the bat.

Kiwi captain Kevin Williamson (65*) then saw the hosts to victory.

Mustafizur Rahman was Bangladesh’s only wicket-taker, picking up 2-42.

The Tigers will look to pick up a consolation victory in the 3rd ODI at Dunedin on Feb 20.
