Guptill's ton was crucial for New Zealand's win but Mahmudullah's ton though it came at a losing cause was even more special. Soumya Sarkar 51 (58) & Sabbir Rahman 40 (23) chipped in to help Bangladesh post a tricky 288 for New Zealand to chase. Did New Zealand crumble once Bazz fell? No they didn't. Guptill 105 (100), Taylor 56 (97), Elliott 39 (34) & Anderson 39 (26) prevented any addition to the embarassing history the Kiwis have had at the hands of Bangladesh. Bangladesh kept picking up wickets at crucial stages and threatened to choke the New Zealanders but Vettori & Southee made sure the Kiwis had the last laugh.
