Bangladesh bowled well to knock the Kiwi top order off, picking up regular wickets to have them in a spot of bother at 158 for 5.Earlier, Bangladesh won the toss and opted to field. Thick cloud cover over the ground helped the Bangladesh bowlers to swing the ball as the Seddon Park pitch also had a tinge of green.
But Guptill batted resolutely to finish the day with an unbeaten 80, which included 10 hits to the fence. Guptill found a partner in Brendon McCullum (58*) and the duo added 100 runs for the sixth wicket in a crucial stand.
