New Zealand beat Bangladesh by 66 runs in the first T20 International in Hamilton on Sunday.
Batting first after winning the toss, the Kiwis posted 210 for three, with Devon Conway scoring an unbeaten 92 off 52 deliveries.
The left-hander hit three sixes and 10 fours in his whirlwind knock as the hosts finished with a flurry of boundaries by taking 20 runs off the last over.
Conway got good support from Martin Guptill (35), Will Young (53) and Glenn Phillips (24*) as the hosts finished two short of the highest total at this venue.
Debutant Nasum Ahmed took two wickets for Bangladesh.
The reply from Bangladesh was a sorry one as they could only manage 144 for 8 in 20 overs.
Leg-spinner Ish Sodhi wreaked havoc with four wickets for 28 runs. Afif Hossain (45), Saif Uddin (34) and Nayeem Sheikh (27) were the highest scorers for Bangladesh.
