Another comfortable win for New Zealand. They've taken the T20 series 2-0. The win was set up by that explosive opening stand between McCullum and Guptill, and although Zimbabwe fought well in the chase, it proved too daunting. Three wickets for Bracewell and three as well for Nathan McCullum. We'll get you the presentation in the bit.

Ross Taylor: "Zimbabwe came at us hard and I'm sure the ODI series will be a great series. Chibhabha and Chigumbura put us under pressure. Still a long way to go on this tour."

Martin Guptill is Man of the Match: "Feeling very good at the moment. The way Brendon is playing, it takes the pressure off me. We're in good stead going into the one-day series."

That's all we have for today, folks. Do tune in for our ODi coverage. The first game is in Harare on October 20. See you then. Don't forget to read Firdose Moonda's bulletin for this game before you sign off...
