It took more than four hours amid almost ridiculous scenes, but the Black Caps returned home against Bangladesh on Thursday night, scoring perfect seven seals out of seven in Napier.
With Glenn Phillips, game man and fast shooter Adam Milne, looking sharp in his first international match in 29 months, New Zealand slid through McLean Park and won the second international match at Twenty20 with 28 rounds using the Duckworth / Lewis / star count method.
Set 170 Credits to Win 16 Bonuses with a Required Overture of 10.63. Bangladesh gave him a good shot before finishing 142-7 after Sumya Sarkar hit 51 of 27 balls.
From November against the West Indies, the Black Caps won like any of the other seven series they have participated in this summer.

The weary tour crew – now 0:31 against New Zealand’s Black Caps in all forms – has one last chance to open their account 2-0 in Thursday’s Final Round at Eden Park in Auckland.
There was some entertainment in the downpour, but Bangladesh deserves sympathy for the strange start of their roles, which their coach Russell Domingo has rightly pissed off.
Whatever the reason, the opening match in Bangladesh began the chase at 9:40 p.m. with no sure goal when referee Jeff Crow consulted his laptop and teammates for what appeared to be a technical glitch. In fact, nobody seems to know the answer.
Initially, the ground electronic scoreboard showed 179 of 17 exaggerations, then suddenly changed from 16 to 148 before shattering under tension. The NZ Cricket website’s official scoreboard at the time was 171 points out of 16 before it was finally revised down to 170.
All this while Bangladesh started hitting before the game was cut 12-0 on nine balls while referees Chris Brown and Wayne Knights awaited confirmation. Domingo broke into the game master’s room and was seen playing Crowe as confusion and frustration mounted before he was finally confirmed and signed by the referee.
As Ross Taylor said in the Spark Sport Commentary, “I’ve been through some things in cricket, but that’s definitely not one of them.”
Milne threatened 150 mph in his return match and snatched two wickets in the third to end the hunt for Bangladesh, while Captain Tim Sothey (2-21 out of four) made the best return as Phillips in three out of rounds where he knocked out 1-20 well.
It flooded New Zealand’s 173-5 round on the 18th, with Phillips and Daryl Mitchell participating in the sixth wicket partnership 62 out of 26 balls in the full tour.
Phillips did not score 58 after coming out 55-3. He was usually busy and inventive, with Mehdi Hassan spinning six times on an extra cover when the ball became slippery and nearly throwing an entire ball off the field.
Speedy driver Taskin Ahmed, approaching 250 km / h, got angry, and became more angry. Mitchell fired a lightning bolt at the guard’s head for four minutes and then shot approximately six times.
Previously, Finnish opener Allen received rave cheer when he successfully defended his first ball after the Golden Duck at his debut on Sunday. The third ball showed what was going on around it, as the switch hit Nassim Ahmed’s turn to the fence like a missile and then, from the first Taskin ball, a glider over the Graeme Lowe stands.
When he was 15, he was skiing and getting caught, leaving another glimpse of home fans on Thursday, while Martin Goptel (21) touched again before Taskin clutched a screaming left hand. Even Devon Conway, 15, revealed he was only human before Phillips took over the leadership.
