Black Caps triumph in World Cup warm-up


New Zealand beat Bangladesh off the last ball of the game to mark the start of the World Twenty20 warm-up programme in England.

Opener Martin Guptillís 62 off 42 deliveries set up the Black Capsí successful pursuit of 147 at Sir Paul Gettyís Ground in Wormsley, the first warm-up encounter on these shores before the tournament gets under way next Friday.

Peter McGlashan made a run-a-ball 35 before Neil McCullumís unbeaten 15 carried New Zealand to a four-wicket win.

Bangladeshís total of 146 for six was built around Mahmudullahís 43, which spanned just 41 deliveries, and Shakib Al Hasanís 27-ball 35.

Ian Butler was New Zealandís most penetrative bowler with 2-32, while Daniel Vettoriís four overs cost just 16 runs and yielded the wicket of Mushfiqur Rahim.
