Colin Munro produced a masterclass of controlled batting to post 101 off 54 balls as New Zealand coasted to a 47-run win in the second Twenty20 against Bangladesh on Friday.

The comprehensive victory at Mount Maunganui gave New Zealand an unbeatable 2-0 lead in the three-match series following their 3-0 sweep of the 50-over matches.

With Munro in sublime form, smashing seven sixes and as many fours in his whirlwind innings, New Zealand posted a daunting 195-7.

Bangladesh in reply were all out for 148 in the 19th over.
