March 20, 2021

New zealand smiled in victory when they win the first ODI three-match series in 12 months against Bangladesh.New Zealand dismissed Bangladesh for a mediocre 131 and a blistering cameo with the bat by Guptill. Star player Trent Boult reflex his awesome moving ball in the both ways and Martin Guptill overcome his uneasy feeling and fight with fearless performance. New zealand powered up to strike eight wicket win over Bangladesh.

Both team are very competive in their own strategies the moment they set their foot on field. Boult honored himself as Player of the Match after bowling figures of 4/27 in the opening game and Matrin Guptil scored 38 runs and four sixes and three fours when Taskin Ahmed found a faint edge and wicketkeeper has been dismissed. Will Young got 11 not out and Henry Nicholls, the opener, was left 49 not out. Meanwhile Devon Conway was the other wicket to fall for 27 marked on his maiden ODI.

On the other hand, Bangladesh was set to do the first bat opener.All is well in the game not until Tanim Iqbal was out in the fifth over. Iqbal had six off Boult’s third ball and four second over from Matt Henry.

Bangladesh was in having a hard time when Boult took two wickets in his third over which is why Tamim Iqbal was dismissed.Batsman Mushfiquir Rahim is the only one able to get past 20 with a score of 23. After that, It is hard for the team to recover again. Iqmal admit that 131 has nowhere to go because off many soft dismissals and the other team was bowled extremely well.

New Zealand captain Tom Latham hailed the two star player Trent Boult and Martin Guptill for the fearless outstanding perfomance they have showed on the game.

"We haven't played for a while and it was about setting the tone, winning the toss and bowling and I thought Trent and Matt Henry did that great, and for us to chase 130 in 20-odd overs was awesome" captain Tom Latham said.

"And we know how destructive he (Guptill) can be when he plays like that, and to break the back of the chase was awesome and for the guys to finish it off then was a pretty clinical performance all round." he added.

Second match will be held on Tuesday in Christchurch.
