    1.2 oh dear! McCullum has a severe brain freeze, looks to play his rock-back pull over midwicket but doesn't move his feet into the right position, skies up a dolly for mid-off. New Zealand make an extremely poor start 8/1
    1.6 more problems for New Zealand, pitched on leg and hits him on middle, Ryder's feet were glued to the crease as he played a nothing shot, finger goes up and the explosive openers have both had their involvement in the game ended within the first two overs 10/2
    4.1 well outside leg, clipped into the deep, a misfield convinces them to race back for two and the stumps are broken with Watling struggling to make his ground. Aleem Dar goes upstairs, the issue is whether Razzak (who dropped the ball) has knocked the bails off with his hands first or if he has dropped the ball into the stumps before his hands made contact. And the verdict is... GONE! New Zealand stumbling badly 14/3
    6.3 brilliant from Razzak! Around the wicket, the arm ball going straight on, Taylor plays for the non-existent turn and leaves a huge gap between bat and pad. The ball is only too happy to take advantage and crash into the off stump. New Zealand staggering like a drunkard here 20/5
    5.4 the centurion from the last game departs for a duck!! short outside off, tried to punch off the back foot but could only get a thick edge to second slip who went low to his left and held on well. Just when New Zealand thought things couldn't get any worse... 16/4
    30.3 the game swings back Bangladesh's way!! Vettori came down and played his short-arm jab aerial flick into the deep on the leg side, midwicket sweeper came round and dived forward to hold onto a well-judged and vital catch 106/6
    43.3 is that the death knell for New Zealand? goes for the big slog sweep and top-edges against the turn with absolutely no timing, Rubel takes a sitter at wide mid-on, needless stroke after the patient buildup, puts bangladesh firmly in the box seat 145/8
    34.5 gone! McCullum doesn't make Bangladesh pay for the dropped catch, comes down the track and tries to hit to leg against the turn, except that this one goes straight on with low bounde and smacks into middle stump. Bangladesh edge closer to the whitewash 119/7
    49.3 cleaned out!! Bangladesh win the series 4-0 and achieve what Athar Ali Khan has called the 'Banglawash'! Mills backed away, Rubel fired in a perfect yorker on leg stump and sent it cartwheeling. The players then chased madly after each other in wild celebration as New Zealand suffer complete ignominy 171/10
    44.6 Bangladesh become firm favourites to wrap this up, McKay leaned forward to a ball that pitched on middle and leg but came back towards the stumps, struck him in front, umpire had little choice other than to raise the dreaded finger 145/9
