New Zealand Dominates Bangladesh in 1st ODI 2023/24: Match Report

1 min read

In a rain-hit first ODI in Dunedin, New Zealand triumphed over Bangladesh by 44 runs, thanks to a power-packed partnership, some late fireworks, and three run-outs in the final over. A rocky start after a rain delay saw New Zealand at 5 for 2, but Will Young and captain Tom Latham led a recovery, and New Zealand ultimately put up a formidable 239. Bangladesh had an opportunity at 80 for 2, but debutant Josh Clarkson and Rachin Ravindra halted their progress. Though Bangladesh showed some resilience, it wasn’t enough to overcome New Zealand’s target after the rain delay altered the match format to 30 overs per side.
