New Zealand beat Bangladesh by 164 runs

New Zealand beat Bangladesh by 164 runs in the third one-day international in Wellington on Friday to achieve a series clean sweep.

Maiden centuries for Devon Conway and Daryl Mitchell set up the win after New Zealand won the toss and elected to bat, making 318 for six.

Conway blasted 126 from 110 balls and Mitchell finished on 100 not out as Bangladesh’s bowlers struggled on a green Basin Reserve wicket.

In contrast, Jimmy Neesham took five for 27 to mop up the Bangladesh tail.

Bangladesh were never in the hunt for the 319 target, and they were all out for 154 with Mahmudullah’s unbeaten 76 the only highlight as eight batsmen failed to reach double figures.

Veteran paceman Rubel Hossain was the pick of the Bangladesh bowlers, taking three for 70.

The teams will met next in a three-match Twenty20 series opening in Hamilton on Sunday.
