Vettori takes 5-7 as Bangladesh crashes out for 93 in third one-dayer

Daniel Vettori claimed five wickets for seven runs as New Zealand dismissed Bangladesh for 93 in the third limited-overs cricket match at the Queenstown Events Center on Monday.
The left-arm spinner, who had previously won his seventh straight toss as New Zealand captain and sent Bangladesh in to bat, took five consecutive wickets from six overs as the tourists crashed out in 37.5 overs for their third-lowest score against New Zealand.
New Zealand's four-pronged seam attack quickly exposed the Bangladesh middle order and Vettori returned his second five-wicket bag and best bowling figures in one-day matches to speed their dismissal.
Three of his victims were bowled as he derived deceptive drift, bounce and turn from the warm conditions and rock-hard pitch.
He first had Aftab Ahmed caught by Mathew Sinclair for 19, then bowled Shakib Al Hasan (10) and Mushfiqur Rahim to leave the tourists 78 for seven.
Farhad Reza was stumped by Brendon McCullum from Vettori's bowling for 12 and he completed his five-wicket haul when he bowled Mashrafe Mortaza for 12.
Right arm seamer Michael Mason, who was recalled to the New Zealand team Monday as a late replacement for the injured Mark Gillespie, took the crucial wickets of opener Tamim Iqbal (12) and captain Mohammad Ashraful (25) to finish with two for 21.
Kyle Mills took the first and last wickets of the Bangladesh innings and had two for 27 from 8.5 overs.
New Zealand leads the three-match series 2-0 after winning the first match in Auckland by six wickets at the second in Napier by 102 runs.
