Bangladesh lost the second ODI -- and the series -- to New Zealand by 67 runs as middle-order batsman Neil Broom stood out for his defiant maiden century.
Electing to field first, Bangladesh bowlers had New Zealand on the ropes but Broom rescued the hosts with a glittering unbeaten 109 in Nelson’s Saxton Oval on Thursday.
Bangladesh then began their chase well on course. But a disastrous run out derailed the chase, triggering a collapse that saw their innings fold up for 184.
New Zealand took the three-match series 2-0 with a match to spare.
