New Zealand have taken a 1-0 lead in the series after registering a victory over Bangladesh by 77 runs in the first ODI in Christchurch. Tom Latham was the star player for the Kiwis as the opener's second career century (137) helped the hosts post a total of 341 in 50 overs.

Colin Munro's 87 off 61 balls which included eight fours and four sixes also helped them amass a huge total. Apart from Mosaddek Hossain (5.70), the other bowlers' economy rate was above 6.

The Tigers failed to get a good start in their run chase as they lost four wickets with 81 on board. Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim put on a good partnership before the wicket-keeping batsman was forced to leave the pitch with an injury.

He will miss the remainder of the series and also the T20 series. Nurul Hasan will be behind the stumps for the second and the third ODI.
