New Zealand wins toss, bats in 2nd Bangladesh one-dayer

New Zealand wins toss, bats in 2nd Bangladesh one-dayer

New Zealand captain Daniel Vettori won his fifth straight toss and elected to bat in the second limited-overs cricket match against Bangladesh at McLean Park on Friday.
"It looks like a typical Napier pitch, with not much grass on it so hopefully we can put a score on the board and put some pressure on them," Vettori said.
New Zealand named the same team which beat Bangladesh by six wickets in the first match of the three-match series at Auckland on Wednesday, leaving spinner Jeetan Patel as 12th man.
Bangladesh made one change to their match lineup, naming Tushar Imran in place of Mehrab Hossain.
"We know we all have to play 100 percent if we want to win and we hope that we can get a win today and keep the series alive," Bangladesh captain Mohammad Ashraful said.
