Black Caps win third ODI

The New Zealand cricket captain Daniel Vettori says he was a little disappointed they put themselves under so much pressure in their run-chase in Thursday night's third one-day international against Bangladesh in Christchurch.

New Zealand reached their target of 242 with fifth overs and three wickets to spare.

Bangladesh made 241 for nine with Imrul Kayes scoring 101, while Tim Southee and Vettori took three wickets each.

The spin bowler Shakib Al Hasan took five wickets and caused problems for most of the Black Caps batsmen, although Martin Guptil scored a run-a-ball 91.

Vettori says there were a lot more runs in the wicket and they shouldn't have been put under so much pressure.

He says they tried to attack the short boundaries and score quickly which is something they'll have to do against Australia in their upcoming series.

However he has credited Shakib for his bowling effort.

New Zealand won the one-day series 3-0 with both teams now heading to Hamilton for the one-off Test which starts on Monday.
