ORAM SPARES KIWI BLUSHES.

NEW Zealand relied heavily on allrounder jacob Oram to dig them out of trouble and claim a 75-run win in the second one-day international against bangladesh yesterday.

The black Caps, trailing 1-0 following their first-ever defeat to the bangladeshis on Thursday, were staring down the barrel of another shock loss when they were reduced to 115 for seven.

but Oram stood firm to patiently bring up his half-century, before smashing 25 from the final over to help new Zealand post a defendable 212 for nine.

Kyle Mills removed opener Tamim Iqbal with the second ball of the bangladesh innings, and Oram claimed two wickets and two catches in a memorable all-round display as the home side quickly folded to 137 all out.
