Commentary

Do join us for the dead rubber on Sunday at 9am local time. This will be the first time that Bangladesh will be playing a dead rubber as the victorious team in the series, and they will be going for an unprecedented 4-0 whitewash. That concludes our coverage of this game. Hope you have enjoyed it, this is Avi Singh signing off on behalf of scorer Sanjay Murari and the rest of the staff here at ESPNcricinfo. Au revoir!

Expect the partying to last long into the night in Dhaka as the whole of Bangladesh celebrate what has taken a long time to come. New Zealand will be extremely embarrassed at how the series has panned out.

Presentations: Kane Williamson receives an award for the best six of the game, while Shakib picks up the fastest fifty award.

Daniel Vettori: 'Bangladesh have played better cricket than us, they have deserved this victory and they have shown us how to play in these conditions. Kane's hundred is the positive to take out from this game. We should have adapted quicker than we have. We must restore some pride in the last game'.

Shakib al Hasan: 'I think we have played great cricket throughout the series, we have shown great character. We can certainly improve on how we use the Batting Powerplay, Williamson batted exceptionally well. I think I batted sensibly and didn't take too many risks, I do need to work on my bowling as well though, haven't bowled as well as I would have liked since returning from Worcestershire'. Shakib is also the Man of the Match for his 106 and 3-54.

Breathless finish here as the Bangladeshis go on a lap of honour to celebrate this historic moment, with the crowd screaming in delight. Reminiscent of the scenes at the Oval in 1971 after India's first Test win in England. Don't forget the brave contribution of Kane Williamson though who hauled New Zealand back into the game and later battled cramp as well. He came into the game with an ODI average of less than 5, but showed today why many in New Zealand cricket circles rate him so highly.

Ultimately the New Zealand top order failed to fire for the third successive time in the series and is the main cause of their humbling downfall here in Bangladesh. Worrying signs for the captain and coach ahead of the World Cup.

But this is Bangladesh's moment, and they thoroughly deserve it. They have outplayed the Kiwis in all three matches and the spinners excelled at tying down the New Zealand middle-order. They have hardly missed Tamim Iqbal which along with this series victory is hopefully evidence that they are starting to develop the depth that will enable them to be competitive on a consistent basis.
