That's it from us for this match. We hope you enjoyed our coverage of the T20 series. Hope to catch you during the Tests. Four days before the first Test begins, which means Bangladesh have only very limited time to find the answers they seek. Hopefully, we will get to see much a tighter contest. Until then, it's goodbye. Thank you for joining us.

Kane Williamson - Feels good, nice to get the series win. It was good of the boys to show improvement. Compared to the previous game, today we had to work really hard. Corey's knock was outstanding. It wasn't always easy, he had to adjust to the wind. It was nice to be at the other end watching him do it. It was nice to play the anchor's role. Frustrating sometimes, but it's about doing what the team needs. We have had a few injuries and the teams have changed coming into different surfaces. I suppose making a match-winning contribution in both games is not easy but he did well. We are looking forward to the Test series and we expect Bangladesh to come hard at us.

Mashrafe Mortaza - I have to scan first and then see what happens. Obviously, it was difficult. The way they batted was really good. We still put some pressure on them, but they put it away. The Tests are going to be tough; we need to be strong mentally.

Anderson - I think we probably needed a few more runs to make the total a defendable one, and the position we had got into was certainly a good one.

Corey Anderson gets the Man-of-the-Match award for his 94.

6.15pm So 3-0 in the ODIs and it is the same plight for Bangladesh in the T20s too. Blanked in both the short formats and throughly outplayed in every department. Two left-handers have razed them in the last two matches - Munro in the previous game and Corey Anderson this time around. Bangladesh put up a much-better batting performance this time, but 194 proved just too much in the end. They needed more from their bowlers and fielding lapses certainly did not help matters. Bangladesh have several reasons to worry and have a lot of brushing up to do if they want to avoid the same fate in the Tests. For New Zealand, on the other hand, this will be a victory to savour after being wiped out in the Chappell-Hadlee Trophy in Australia. We will bring the presentation to you shortly.

Shlok: "Bangladesh has many good stroke-makers like Soumya Sarkar, but no big hitters like Maxwell and Anderson. Hurts them in T20, but they should be a pretty good ODI side."
