Ross Taylor continued his fine form in Dunedin as he posted his 47th ODI half-century en-route to eclipsing Stephen Fleming (8,007) as New Zealand's all-time ODI leading runs-scorer
The University Oval stood as one to salute Taylor, who also became the fourth fastest player ever to pass 8,000 ODI runs, behind Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, and Sourav Ganguly.
Taylor's knock and half-centuries by Henry Nicholls and Tom Latham, plus late quick-fire cameos from Jimmy Neesham and Colin de Grandhomme helped the BLACKCAPS through to 320 from their 50-overs.
Tim Southee then reminded everyone of his class by getting the ball to swing at pace as Bangladesh were reduced to 3-2 early on.
