A superb all-round display from Jacob Oram helped New Zealand to a convincing 146-run rout of Bangladesh in the opening one-day international at Napier.
Oram smashed the Bangladesh attack all around the ground for a rapid 83 before going on to take two wickets as the tourists slumped to defeat.
Oram's 40-ball knock provided the backbone to New Zealand's 336-9 - a total Bangladesh never looked like coming close to.
The home side had started badly as dangerous opener Brendon McCullum was run out for an uncharacteristic duck, while Martin Guptill followed for two with the score on just 19.
However Peter Ingram, on his ODI debut, made 69, while Ross Taylor added 51 from 52 balls to steady the ship.
The departure of Ingram, the first of Shafiul Islam's four victims, sparked a mini-slump as James Franklin (2) and then Taylor fell in quick succession.
Neil Broom (71) shared a half-century stand with Daniel Vettori (32) to frustrated the Tigers and although Shakib Al Hasan have the Kiwi skipper stumped by Mushfiqur Rahim, that only opened the door for Oram.
Taking advantage of the batting powerplay Oram smashed eight fours and five sixes to finish with a strike rate of 207.5.
Oram was eventually clean bowled by Shafiul, with the Bangladesh bowler also accounting for Tim Southee two balls later for final figures of 4-68.
Bangladesh made a solid start in reply, as Tamim Iqbal and Imrul Kayes put on 71 for the first wicket.
However when McCullum caught Kayes (33) off Andy McKay, the Bangladesh resistance quickly folded.
Mohammad Ashraful and Raqibul Hasan both fell cheaply, while Iqbal finally succumbed for 62 as he edged to McCullum off Vettori.
Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim also failed to trouble the scorers as Bangladesh were reduced to 144-6.
Mahmudullah attempted to frustrate the hosts with a run-a-ball 23 but his efforts were all in vain as New Zealand polished off the tail.
Vettori was the pick of the Blackcaps attack with 3-33 while Oram took 2-33 and Guptil weighed in with 2-7.
