New Zealand swat aside Bangladesh thanks to Conway fifty

Riding on Devon Conway’s sparkling 70*, New Zealand gunned down Bangladesh’s total of 137 at Hagley Oval on Sunday, to register their first win of the tri-series. The Bangladeshi innings never got the momentum it needed. Barring a decent second-wicket stand of 41 runs between Liton Das and Najmul Shanto, after Mehidy Hasan perished early, they never looked in control. New Zealand bowlers kept chipping at the wickets, and apart from Nurul Hasan, who dealt a few lusty blows towards the end en route his 12-ball 25*, Bangladesh batters struggled against the hosts.
