NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 22/12/2016

A New Zealand XI has defeated Bangladesh by three wickets in a rain-affected one-day tour match in Whangarei.

The hosts hit their target with an over-and-a-half to spare after the Bangladeshis notched 245-8 in a reduced 43 overs.

Wicket-keeper Ben Horne top scored for the hosts with 60, while Shawn Hicks performed strongly with the ball, earning two wickets for 30 runs.

Bangladesh will take on the Black Caps in the first of a three-match ODI series in Christchurch on Boxing Day.

They'll then play New Zealand in three Twenty20s and two Tests.
