Kane Williamson's excellent 104 not out led New Zealand to an unlikely seven-wicket victory over Bangladesh in the first Test.
However, the result was slightly overshadowed by Mushfiqur Rahim being taken to hospital after being hit on the helmet by a bouncer.
Mushfiqur took his eye off a shorter delivery from Tim Southee and was struck on the back of his helmet, requiring an ambulance to come onto the Basin Reserve pitch and take the Tigers captain away to a nearby hospital.
Bangladesh vice-captain Tamim Iqbal later sought to play down concerns for his team-mate, saying Mushfiqur was fine and had been taken to hospital as a precaution.
But the footage of Mushfiqur being carried off on a stretcher with looks of concern etched on the faces of several players conjures the harrowing incident of Phillip Hughes, who suffered a fatal blow to the neck from a bouncer in November 2014.
Mushfiqur's departure, retired hurt for 13, left the tourists in dire straits as they fell to 160 all out in the second innings on the final day, leaving New Zealand a target of 217 in 57 overs.
That they won at a canter was largely down to the brilliance of Williamson, who raced to his fifty in only 43 balls to soothe any Kiwi nerves after Mehedi Hasan had accounted for openers Tom Latham (16) and Jeet Raval (13).
The New Zealand captain then brought up a chanceless hundred off 89 balls with his 15th four before sealing victory off the very next delivery as the Black Caps reached their total in 39.4 overs.
Ross Taylor provided able support in his 60 to complete a fine comeback win for New Zealand and condemn Bangladesh to an unwanted record, with their 595-8 declared in the first innings the highest ever score in a losing cause.
That broke a 123-year record held by Australia, who scored 586 all out against England in Sydney in 1894 before being beaten by 10 runs.
A top order wobble on the fourth evening saw Bangladesh resume on 66-3 and Sabbir Rahman showed flashes of resistance with a battling 50 but it was not enough as Bangladesh meekly subsided.
Their plight was summed up by Sabbir taking the wicketkeeping gloves in the fourth innings, due to Mushfiqur's unavailability and back-up Imrul Kayes nursing a hip injury.
