Taylor sets record as NZ beat Bangladesh

Ross Taylor celebrates bringing up his century during last year's ODI against England in Dunedin

New Zealand have completed a three nil series cleansweep of Bangladesh with an 88 run win the third and final match of the one day cricket series in Dunedin.

Taylor went past Stephen Fleming while the home side were batting first in the third ODI against Bangladesh at the University of Otago Oval.

Fleming score 8007 ODI runs from 279 matches at an average of 32.41.

Nathan Astle (7090), Martin Guptill (6440) and Brendon McCullum (6083) round out the top five.

Taylor scored 69 off 81 balls as the Black Caps cruised to 330/6 after losing the toss and being sent in to bat, with Henry Nicholls and Tom Latham also making half centuries. The Canterbury batsman has been batting at No.6 as well as in the opening slot throughout this New Zealand summer and is now set to bat at No.3 position after the return of Colin Munro as the skipper Kane Williamson is rested for the dead rubber. For the hosts, Martin Guptill has been in fine form with two back-to-back centuries and is expected to continue his new-found form.

Fleming also scored 30 runs for the ICC World XI, meaning Taylor still needs 12 more runs to take the all-time record for runs by a New Zealander.

U.S. seeks return of $2.5 billion California high-speed rail funds
This included not making reasonable progress on the project and significantly endangering substantial performance. The train project has faced repeated cost overruns and delays since California voters approved it in 2008.

Coming in at No. 5, wicketkeeper-batsman Latham straightaway took the attack to the Bangladeshi bowlers and added 65 runs with Jimmy Neesham in no time.

Paceman Tim Southee, overlooked in New Zealand's past six ODIs, took six for 65 to guarantee himself nearly certainly a berth at the tournament.

Trent Boult took two wickets and Colin de Grandhomme one.

The run rate slowed to a crawl after Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah Riyad departed, each caught by Munro after offering rash shots in pursuit of quick runs.

He would ultimately run out of partners, though, as Southee returned to dismiss captain Mashrafe Mortaza and Mehidy Hasan Miraz.
