New Zealand 341 for 7 beat Bangladesh 264 for 9 by 77 runs. New Zealand made 341-7 in their 50 overs and the Bangladesh innings closed in 44.5 overs at 264-9, with Mushfiqur Rahim forced to retire with a hamstring injury on 42.

Tom Latham and Colin Munro produced career high scores while Jimmy Neesham ripped the heart out of Bangladesh’s top order as New Zealand secured a 77-run victory in their first one-day international at Hagley Oval in Christchurch on Monday.

New Zealand scored 341 for seven, with opening batsman Latham scoring 137, while Munro blasted 87 from 61 deliveries in a 158-run stand.

Neesham then took three wickets, including two in one over, as the visitors slumped to 81 for four after 18 overs which ensured they could not realistically challenge the total — the equal highest for a one-day international at Hagley Oval.
