Kiwis level series

New Zealand squared their one-day series with Bangladesh with a 75-run win in the second match in Mirpur.

In reply to the visitors' 212-9, where Jacob Oram top-scored with 75 not out, Bangladesh were all out for 137.New Zealand began poorly, going from 31-0 to 45-4, before Oram turned things around with his match-winning innings. Vettori was pleased with his team's performance and said: "I think we bowled and fielded very well. Bangladesh at the start put pressure on us.

"I think when you lose the first game and put a mediocre total on the board than there are some concerns. So we were a little bit nervous in the dressing roomand we started wondering about going down 2-0 on a series we should win."
