That is all from us for this match then. Bangladesh have now conceded the ODI and T20I series. But unlike the ODIs, can they avoid getting wiped out in the shortest format? We will find out when they clash at the same venue for the final match of the series on Sunday at the same venue. Join us then. Until then, it's goodbye. Thank you for joining us.

Colin Munro is the Man of the Match for his century.

So Bangladesh still winless on their tour of New Zealand. Their batting has again let them down. After conceding 195 on a slow track, it was always going to be uphill for Bangladesh. Colin Munro played a blinder to set things up nicely. And in the chase, Kane Williamson ended with the best figures for New Zealand. We will have the presentation with you shortly.

Fahim: "@walrus: I don't think that is a issue due to too much or too less. BD batsmen play only in one mode. Even if there are only 5 batters they will play the same way. Its more about lack of perseverance."

Saket: "@Bruce: they have too much of what? Batting?? I don't think so. I think they have too much lack of temperament or maturity."

Wheeler to Rubel Hossain, OUT, short ball seals the game for New Zealand. It was on the leg stump channel so Rubel cannot make good connection on the attempted pull as he gets cramped for room. Gets a faint top edge and the ball lobs to part-time wicketkeeper Bruce

walrus: "The thing with BD's batting is that they have too much, which gives the batsmen too much freedom to hit out and thus a batting collapse ensues. Think tank have to think again on this one formula which they've repeatedly used and lost."
