And with that, we wrap up our coverage of the 2nd ODI of the 3-match series between Bangladesh and New Zealand. Today, it was New Zealand who emerged victorious, taking the lead in the series with a scoreline of 1-0.

We look forward to bringing you more thrilling matches from around the world. For now, this is Hitesh Peddurwar signing off, along with my fellow commentators Arijit Kundu and Saipavan Janaki, as well as our diligent scorer and analyst, Zeeshan Naiyer. Until next time, stay safe and keep enjoying the game!

Lockie Ferguson(New Zealand Skipper): " Yeah, excellent effort by our boys today. To start with, Henry and Tom batted really well and with the ball Ish bowled pretty well. The way Ish bowled today, was exceptional. He was my go-to man today, good to see him perform well after all the hard work behind the scenes. I think we batted really well and bowled too, it was a complete team effort by the boys. We were excellent in the field too. It's nice to see Ish get some runs and Kyle as well."
Ish Sodhi (Man of the Match): "Yeah absolutely really good day. Coming on the winning side, come here and win this is tough but we did, and thanks to skipper for the backing me. Yeah, that was the reason we decided to bat first as the ball would spin more in the second innings, even Ravindra and McConhie got the ball to spin. Playing ODI cricket leading into the WC is awesome, but this is a difficult place and to walk away with a win is something awesome."

Player of the Match: Ish Sodhi
Litton Das(Bangladesh Skipper): " Yeah, before 40 overs we were in the game, Their lower order batted well in that situation, we bowled really well but not up to the mark with the batting. They scored 40-50 runs in the lower middle order that cost us. Our two senior guys played really well, Tamim and Riyad. The rest of the guys need to step up like we need to play a big knock like 70 to 80 runs."

20:53 IST, 21:23 Local Time| That's it!!!! Lockie Ferguson uproots the off-stump and Bangladesh have been bundled out for 168 runs. The Kiwis have won this game by 86 runs. Ish Sodhi was the man of the moment for New Zealand as he scalped 6 wickets. This is the first win for New Zealand in ODI against Bangladesh in Bangladesh since 2008.

Earlier in the game, New Zealand won the toss and elected to bat first. New Zealand struggled early with both openers, Will Young and Finn Allen, falling victim to Mustafizur Rahman's bowling. Young was out for a duck in the 3rd over, and Allen managed 12 runs before departing in the 7th over.

Chad Bowes and Henry Nicholls had a brief 10-run partnership for the 3rd wicket before Bowes was dismissed by a debutant Khaled Ahmed in the 8th over, scoring 14 runs.

Henry Nicholls and Tom Blundell then took charge, easing the pressure with a 95-run partnership for the fourth wicket. The debutant Khaled Ahmed broke the partnership in the 27th over, denying Nicholls a half-century by one run. New Zealand lost more wickets but their lower-middle order, including Cole McConchie, Ish Sodhi, and Kyle Jamieson, contributed to reach a total of 254 runs in 49.2 overs.

Bangladesh's Khaled Ahmed and Mahedi Hasan took three wickets each, Mustafizur Rahman took two, and Hasan Mahmud and Nasum Ahmed claimed one wicket each.

Bangladesh's pursuit of 255 runs faced an early setback as Litton Das was dismissed in the 6th over. The experienced Tamim Iqbal played some elegant shots and combined with Tanzid Hasan for a 41-run partnership. Ish Sodhi's introduction into the bowling attack turned the tide. He removed Tanzid Hasan and Soumya Sarkar in the 11th over and added the crucial wicket of Towhid Hridoy in the 15th over.

Tamim Iqbal held one end firmly but fell to Ish Sodhi in the 19th over after contributing a valuable 44 runs. With Mahmudullah Riyad and Mahedi Hasan at the crease, Bangladesh managed to rebuild their innings with a valuable 42-run partnership for the 6th wicket. Ish Sodhi's magic with the ball persisted as he returned in the 30th over to dismiss Mahedi Hasan on the very first ball he bowled.

Mahmudullah kept Bangladesh's hopes alive with his steady batting but fell just one run short of a half-century, departing after scoring 49 runs. In the end, Bangladesh got bundled out for 168 runs and lost this game by 86 runs.

Ish Sodhi was the hero with the ball for New Zealand, securing an exceptional 6-wicket haul while conceding only 39 runs in his 10-over spell. He made history by becoming the first New Zealand spinner to achieve such a feat in ODIs. Kyle Jamieson supported him with two crucial wickets, while Lockie Ferguson and Cole McConchie added one wicket each.
