Bangladeshi openers Imrul Kayes and Shahriar Nafees statred off with a positive attitude and added up a century stand of 127 runs for the first wicket giving the hosts a solid beginning.

Nafees scored 73 runs before being out caught by Branden McCullum of a Nathan McCullum delivery.

Not much later did his co opener Kayes fell on the score of 134. Kayes made 50 from 83 balls.

Siddique also fell at a presonal score of 14 from 27 deliveries reading the team total at 159/3.

Although, skipper Sakib Al Hasan and middle order batsman Raqibul Hasan made sure that there are no more speed breakers and they took the Bangladshi team past the New Zealand total registering a win.
