New Zealand cruise to victory by 10 wickets with 10.4 overs to spare. McCullum ends with 56 not out off just 27 balls, while Ingram will be happy with 20 not out on international debut.

Bangladesh will be very disappointed with their first up effort here. It's fair to say they looked underdone after two days of rain prevented them from training outdoors for all but one of their four days in the country.

New Zealand were very professional in the park and with the bat. Man of the Match honours could go to either Vettori for his 3 for 6 off four overs or McCullum with his 56 not out. Tuffey, Nathan McCullum and Oram all took two wickets.

Shakib is disappointed with how his side adjusted to the conditions and says that he misread the pitch. He gives credit to Vettori and admits his team failed to execute their plans.

Vettori is obviously pretty happy and credits his players performances coming off the domestic T20 campaign. He felt the wicket suited New Zealand and he is rapt with how well Nathan McCullum is progressing as an international spinner.

Not surprisingly Vettori picks up the Man of the Match award and interest now shifts to Napier where the ODI series begins on Friday. On behalf of everyone here at Cricinfo, this is Marc Ellison signing off. Please join us again on Friday at 0100 GMT or 1400 NZDT. Goodnight.
