Live updates:

New Zealand 57/1 (13.5/50 ov)

Bangladesh 236/9

Bangladesh won the toss and they batted first

In the last game, it was Trent Boult and Tim Southee who broke the spine of the Bangladesh batting lineup. Skipper Kane Williamson too joined the party and picked three crucial wickets.

For the visitors, nobody except Imrul Kayes (58) showed any kind of fighting spirit while chasing a much assailable 252. Shakib Al Hasan, the kingpin of Bangladesh batting failed to make any impact in the run chase, as he was knocked out for a meager 7.

Bangladesh skipper Mashrafe Mortaza is not a happy man, as his team has been failing to work as a unit throughout this series. A win in this game will help the team to regain the lost morale so that they can perform well in the upcoming T20 and Test series against the Kiwis.
