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 28-245 in a reduced 43 overs.

Wicketkeeper Ben Horne top scored for the hosts with 60, while Shawn Hicks performed strongly with the ball, taking 2-30.

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.
