The BLACKCAPS remain unbeaten in the Irish Tri Series after successfully chasing down 257 to defeat Bangladesh by four wickets in Clontarf, Dublin.
A polished half century from captain Tom Latham and an important 80 run partnership between Neil Broom (48) and Jimmy Neesham (52) helped knock the total off with 15 balls to spare.
Earlier Wellington paceman Hamish Bennett made an impressive return to international cricket, claiming 3-31 from his ten overs.
