New Zealand picked up a comfortable 45-run (DLS method) victory over Bangladesh in the first ODI of the series. Will Young hit a cracking century (105 off 84) while skipper Tom Latham played an impactful knock of 92 off 77. In the absence senior players Kane Williamson, Glenn Phillips, Daryl Mitchell, Trent Boult and Tim Southee, New Zealand’s young brigade stepped up and will be aiming to repeat the same in the second ODI at the Sxton Oval in Nelson.

When it comes to Bangladesh, a lot of their batters managed to get a good start but failed to capitalize. Players like Soumya Sarkar, Litton Das, Towhid Hridoy and Mushfiqur Rahim will have to step up their game. When it comes to bowling, there remains a lot of room for improvement, especially when the conditions are likely to favour the pacers.
