Neil Broom struck a maiden ODI century for New Zealand as they secured a series win following a woeful Bangladesh batting collapse in the second one-day international Nelson. 

Broom struck an unbeaten 109 in an otherwise disappointing effort by the hosts as they were skittled for 251 in their 50 overs.

But Bangladesh, cruising at 105-1, ultimately crumbled to 184 all out and a 67-run defeat; Black Caps skipper Kane Williamson's part-time off-spin accounting for three wickets.

The win sees New Zealand take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series, with the final game to be played on Saturday, again in Nelson.

With heavy overcast conditions, Bangladesh sent New Zealand into bat, and it looked to be the right move as the hosts slipped to 47-3 including losing the wicket of first ODI centurion, Tom Latham (22).

By the time the clouds dispersed the New Zealand top order, with the exception of Broom, were already out and the tail struggled to pick up the pace.

Wickets continues to tumble regularly, with Mashrafe Mortaza the standout bowler, taking 3-49, while the next best score for the Black Caps behind Broom, who brought up his ton in the 48th over, was Luke Ronchi's 35.

In reply, Tim Southee picked up Tamim Iqbal (16) early, but Imrul Kayes (59) cracked fifty as he and Sabbir Rahman (38) kept the scoreboard ticking over at a good rate.

But, soon after Imrul brought the Bangladesh 100 up with a huge six off Jimmy Neesham, Sabbir was run out in bizarre fashion as he turned back going for a single and both batsmen raced for the non-striker's end.

It was the start of the Bangladesh downfall with Lockie Ferguson, who dropped a sitter from Imrul on 45, bowling new batsman Mahmudullah for one with a yorker.

Williamson (3-22) then entered the attack to remove Shakib Al Hasan (7), Mosaddek Hossain (3) and Tanveer Haider (2) cheaply and leave the visitors in tatters, and they ultimately slipped to a heavy defeat when bowled out in the 43rd over.
