The Black Caps have clinically beaten Bangladesh in the 2nd ODI in Christchurch.

Sent into bat, Bangladesh were quickly in trouble, and by the 21st over were 88 for 4.

However, a 75-run sixth-wicket stand between Mohammad Mithun and Sabbir Rahman resurrected the innings somewhat, until Todd Astle clean bowled Mithun for 57 halfway through the 35th over.

Chasing 226 for victory, opener Martin Guptill scored his second century in as many matches.

His score ensured the Black Caps made the total in the 36th over with 8 wickets remaining.

The third and final ODI is scheduled for next Wednesday in Dunedin, with the first test in a three-match series beginning in Hamilton on February 28.
