New Zealand joined Pakistan in the final of the tri-series after posting a 48-run win against Bangladesh in Christchurch.
Chasing the mammoth target of 209 runs, Bangladesh only managed to score 160 runs with the fall of seven wickets.
Opener Devon Conway raised a brilliant half-century before Glenn Phillips smacked Bangladesh bowlers to cleaners as he scored a blistering 60 off 24 balls to help New Zealand post a mammoth 209-run target after they were put to bat.
Martin Guptil, who batted at No 3 in Williamson’s place, looked impressive in his first outing in the ongoing Tri-series as he hit three fours and a six during his 34-run knock and anchored the Blackcaps innings with a valiant second-wicket partnership of 87 runs along with Conway. On the other, Conway left the crease in the 17th after playing a magnificent knock of 64 off 40.
Adam Milne’s three wickets pegged back the visitors, with his pace making a difference. Bracewell and stand-in captain Tim Southee finished with two wickets apiece.
Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan offered the most resistance with 70 off 40 balls including eight fours.
He was finally out when he edged his attempted shot over the cover to New Zealand wicketkeeper Conway as the game slipped away from Bangladesh.
“The way Devon batted again was absolutely phenomenal, but it just happened to be my day with the bat,” Phillips said after being named man-of-the-match.
