Tom Latham, from Cantabria, is said to have dreamed of such moments.
Latham scored the captain’s final goal in the ODI men’s first day-of-the-night match at Hagley’s Oval home, and clinched a five-point win with 10 more balls on Tuesday.
The win also gave New Zealand a 2–0 lead and ended the ODI series with one match – Friday at the Wellington Basin Reserve.
As the leader of the injured Ken Williamson (attached) in the series, Latham played one of his signature roles, sending New Zealand 53-3 from a precarious position when he crossed over for a wicket on the 11th.

Latham advanced with a fifth ODI century, his second against Bangladesh at Hagley, with a border behind a deep square leg and a thin leg with 19 balls requiring 23 balls. He finished 110 balls from 108 and hit 10 balls.
Christchurch boy Latham, son of Rod Latham, the former founder of New Zealand, will remember that stroke for a long time and drive her home with courage, cunning and patience.
Latham and his left wife Devon Conway scored 113 together after New Zealand found itself in trouble early. Just when it looked like they were pulling the match out of Bangladesh, Captain Tamim scored a sharp direct kick to put Conway behind.
Four weeks after his Cool 99 did not land in his inaugural T20 against Australia at Hagley, Conway was once again impressing in the boutique until he came to an impressive moment.
In the second ODI, the South African-born Conway chapter was visible to everyone and set the stage alongside Latham. He pushed the ball and took advantage of all the bad shots. Conway walked for 72 of 93 balls and another 106 were needed.
Soon after, Bangladesh lost a chance with wicket keeper Mashfiq Rahim, who cut the sitter one to three with Jimmy Nesham. Then, 58-year-old Latham was kicked out of his bowling alley by Mehdi Hassan.
He made her pay to get home safely. Neesham (30 balls out of 34) also made a large late contribution.
Bangladesh is back at Hagley, where they will play New Zealand in the final test of their tour in 2019.
However, the match was immediately abandoned after 17 Bangladeshi players and support staff were narrowly avoided at the Al Noor Mosque during the shooting in Christchurch – the day before the match began. After a one-on-one soccer match was postponed, the Bangladesh squad arrived too late
In 272 to reach the ODI Series with three matches, New Zealand struggled early on. Bangladesh, which failed to win all three forms 27 times in New Zealand, is said to have seized the opportunity to make history and score an overwhelming victory.
Two fast non-competitor wickets saw the hosts fall 53-3 in the eleventh game. Both Henry Nichols and Will Young were bombarded by the man approached by Bowling Spin coach and former Black Caps grandson Daniel Vettori before the series, taking Bangladesh to the top.
Bangladesh faced a strong side from New Zealand early on, with veteran duo captain Williamson and Ross Taylor not present, and they did exactly that.
In his second ODI match, Conway was tasked with rebuilding the roles and the left-wing duo surrendered their 50-ball partnership with 72 balls.
In a further 25 spell New Zealand still had a lot to do at 107-3 and need 165 again. With two batsmen and a wicket on hand, they gave each other a big shot and needed 6.60 per time.
Latham lived his life soon after with a bad shot, firing a shot from Mehdi that safely fell from oncoming field players – a turning point in the game. Conway swept the wheel back for four in the next delivery.
New Zealand had to beat Kyle Jamison A controversial order was arrested and banned from bowling earlier in the day when Bangladeshi captain Tamim Iqbal was 34 years old.
Jamieson appears to have captured the ball nicely and dived deep into his sequel to catch the ball. The soft signal on the field was off, but third referee Wayne Knights ruled that Jamison was not in full control of the ball when it hit the ground. Then Tamim achieved the best team with 78.
It had greatly improved batting performance from Bangladesh after shooting just 131 times in the opening ODI on Saturday.
After Latham again requested to score first, Bangladesh would love to score 271-6 competitions that would put her firmly in the game.
Sponsored 78 Tamim and the best ODI march from Mohamed Mithoun, who shot 73 out of 57 unbeaten balls, the Tigers showed a lot of fighting after folding the bat in Dunedin.
Mithun, who scored at five, presented the editorial of the solid base Iqbal built with Mashfiq Rahim (34) and Soumia Sarkar (32).
With a wicket in hand, Bangladesh freely scored in the last 10 hikes and added 88 points from 183-3 in forty.
New Zealand, with a lot of experience handling the ball at Dunedin, fought with equal consistency and precision, and Bangladesh showed a lot of determination.
Bangladesh was right when Young was cheap for it. They were their staunch enemy but squandered critical opportunities because the game was perfectly balanced.
Bangladesh: 271-6 in 50 overs (Tamim Iqbal 78, Muhammad Mithun 73no, Mashfiq Rahim 34, Sumaya Sarkar 32; Mitchell Santner 2-51) Lost against New Zealand 275-5 in 48.2 sums (Tom Latham 110no, Devon Conway 72, Jimmy Nesham 30; Mahdi Hassan 2-42, Mustafa Rahman 2-62) With five doors.
