After England won in their pocket and were the first to pick a bat, Bangladesh managed to get an early wicket in Wellington with Jahanar Alam claiming Danny Wyatt.
Nigar Sultana’s sharp catch then knocked Knight down by six before Fahima Khatun demanded £ 40 from Skiver.
Eventually Sophia Dunkley led England to 234 on six, reaching 67 with the support of Amy Jones and Catherine Brant.
Sophie Ecclestone and Charlie Dean took three wickets each to dismiss Bangladesh for 134.
Captain Knight praised Dunkley’s performance in a post-match interview with Sky Sports.
“She was a very good find. She has matured and improved her composure on the fold. She hits the ball very cleanly,” she said.
Knight added that the parties are hoping for more wounds in the match, saying: “I am very happy, I would probably like a few more wounds, 250/260, but the wicket was very slow. And we were clinical with the ball.
“All the reflectors had a little time in the middle to get used to the conditions here.
“It says a lot about this group, the way we turned the situation around. Not too bad, we found ourselves on the wrong side of a few loved ones. I would certainly have bitten off your hand a few weeks ago to be in this situation.”
England are currently third in the table and will meet South Africa in the top four.
