Good Morning, সুপ্রভাত, Morning pai! Hello and Welcome to CricketCountry’s live blog for the second One-Day International (ODI) of the ongoing series between New Zealand and Bangladesh. The teams will face each other at the Saxton Oval, Nelson. The visitors were thrashed in the first ODI by 77 runs and  rubbing more salt into their wound comes the injury of their wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim, who will miss rest of the series. New Zealand have a prominent chance to seal the series with their second consecutive victory in the series while Bangladesh will look to put up their best performance to save the series. The first ODI was entirely dominated by the hosts. Tom Latham continued his great form, scoring a blistering 137 off 121. He hit 7 fours and 4 sixes in the process and provided a major push to his team to put up a big score. Though rest of the team could not contribute with anything impressive, it was Colin Munro who scored 87 batting at No. 6. New Zealand put up 341 for 7 at the end of their innings. Shakib Al Hasan was most successful with the ball, picking up 3 wickets. Both Mustafizur Rahman and Taskin Ahmed bagged 2 wickets each while Mashrafe Mortaza and Mosaddek Hossain went wicketless. Bangladesh could hardly put up competition chasing the mammoth target. Tamim Iqbal, though started well, failed to make it a big innings, getting out for 38. Shakib shone with the bat as well, scoring 59 and was well supported by Mushfiqur who added 42.  He retired hurt after his hamstring injury. Mosaddek Hossain’s unbeaten 50 was a handy contribution but all these efforts failed to take the team to a victorious end. Bangladesh’s innings ended with 264 runs on the board. Bangladesh took on a lot of pressure giving away too many runs. Their 264 could have been bigger had there been no pressure of chasing a big total. Come second ODI, the bowlers will have to bowl with more discipline as the New Zealand unit  is full of power-hitters. Again, the batsmen need to battle their nerves and play their game in different situations. Squads: Bangladesh: Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Soumya Sarkar, Sabbir Rahman, Mahmudullah, Shakib Al Hasan, Mosaddek Hossain Saikat, Mashrafe Mortaza (c), Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman (wk), Rubel Hossain, Mehedi Hasan, Subashis Roy, Tanveer Haider. New Zealand: Martin Guptill, Tom Latham, Kane Williamson (c), Colin Munro, Luke Ronchi (wk), James Neesham, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Lockie Ferguson, Trent Boult, Matt Henry, Neil Broom.
