New Zealand's victorious tour of Bangladesh ended on a slightly sour note as both Craig McMillan and Scott Styris were brought to book by Alan Hurst, the ICC match referee, after the third and final one-day international in Dhaka.

McMillan was fined 25% of his match fee after a show of dissent and swearing at the umpire on being given out leg before, while Styris - who was Man of the Series - was given a severe reprimand for giving Mohammad Ashraful a tasteless send-off after dismissing him.

Interestingly, New Zealand were the recipients of the Spirit of Cricket award at a ceremony organised by the ICC just two months ago.
