Dunedin, February 20, Wednesday at 03:30 AM IST
Back to back hundreds from Martin Guptill helped the hosts seal the three-matches ODI series by 2-0 with the third and final game set to be played at University Oval, Dunedin on Wednesday morning.
Martin Guptill, who handed 8 wickets win to Kiwis in the first ODI with his unbeaten 117 of 116 deliveries, scored another century in the second ODI and this time more ruthless as he took only 88 deliveries to slam 118 runs, which included 14 fours and 4 sixes.
New Zealand registered 8 wickets win in the second ODI and along with M Guptill, skipper Kane Williamson also played a crucial knock of unbeaten 65 of 86 deliveries. Both the teams will now meet tomorrow at Dunedin before shifting their focus towards the test series.
In the second ODI, New Zealand’s spearhead Trent Boult and Bangladesh’s all-rounder Mahmudullah were fined 15 and 10 % of the match fees respectively for breaching ICC Code of Conduct. Mahmudullah was found guilty of “abuse of cricket equipment or clothing, ground equipment or fixtures and fittings during an international match” while Trent Boult was found guilty of using “an audible obscenity during an international match”. As it was only Level 1 breach, the charges were levelled by on-field umpires.
The Level 1 breach of ICC Code of Conduct carries a minimum penalty of an official reprimand or a maximum penalty of 50 per cent of the match fee along with one or two demerit points.
