New Zealand claimed they were complacent and underprepared in 2010. This time they undertook a training camp in Sri Lanka beforehand. It's made no difference to the results as the home side sweep the visitors again, today on the back of a well-constructed run chase courtesy of Shamsur's 96 and supporting efforts from (in particular) Naeem and Nasir which meant that Ross Taylor's century and Colin Munro's aggressive 85 were in vain

Man of the Match is Shamsur Rahman and Man of the Series is Mushfiqur Rahim. Unfortunately we can't bring you the presentation so that concludes our coverage for today. Do join me on Wednesday at 1.00pm local time to see if the only Twenty20 International will bring more joy for the home side or if the visitors can finally break this losing streak in Bangladesh. Until then, this is Avi Singh thanking you for following us tonight and wishing you well wherever you are. Cheers!

McClenaghan to Sohag Gazi, FOUR runs, banged in short again and this time he uppercuts it over the infield to secure another whitewash for Bangladesh as New Zealand's winless streak in internationals against Bangladesh in Bangladesh extends to more than 5 years

Nithin Valentine: "Can Anderson pull off a Rubel esque hatrick? :-)" Wouldn't seem that way

Anderson to Sohag Gazi, FOUR runs, half-volley outside off is drilled with excellent timing as he bisects cover and mid-off and finds the boundary

  • When kiwis flew and tigers roared

    How Bangladesh's batsmen made a mockery of a big total and the commentators

  • NZ players need better coaching - Siddons

    Jamie Siddons, the former Bangladesh coach who is now in charge of Wellington, has questioned whether coaching standards in New Zealand are up to providing players, particularly batsmen, for the national side who can cope in alien conditions

  • Finisher Nasir adds to reputation

    The successful 300-plus chase against New Zealand was the latest proof of Nasir Hossain's strength to bat according to his team's needs

  • 'Wasn't nervous in 90s' - Shamsur

    Where once he felt nerves in the nineties, Shamsur Rahman said he didn't feel any butterflies as the chase took precedence over personal achievement in the third ODI

  • Fading light, unfading resolve

    A reduced dependence on the big stars and the confidence derived from past successes are driving Bangladesh's progress
