    16.3 pushed through on leg, going on, beats the sweep and the finger is up in a flash 77/4
    3.2 low bounce does for Nafees! pitched outside off and darted back in low to beat Nafees' attempted prod, struck on the kneeroll on middle and leg, possibly going on to hit leg 15/1
    6.3 on the leg stump, tries the customary flick, gets a leading edge that swirls around for a long time, Vettori does well to take the catch and hold on after tumbling awkwardly 32/2
    14.4 Raqibul's scratchy innings is ended by a loose dab cut to a ball on middle and off, chops it on 69/3
    28.5 on leg, pick-up stroke is significantly better timed but straight into the hands of Williamson at deep square leg who dives forward. He is unsure if the ball has carried, the umpires go upstairs. Replays are inconclusive. And against the benefit of the doubt, Shakib is sent on his way!! Massive blow for New Zealand, Shakib has been a real thorn in their plans this series, they will be more than happy to see the back of him. Bangladesh's hopes of a competitive total decrease significantly 132/5
    31.5 superb slower delivery from Elliott, Mushfiqur was early on the shot and misses the drive, cuts back in and keeps low to hit middle, New Zealand start to consolidate their grip on the game 144/6
    40.1 beautifully bowled, flighted on off and drifts into middle, beats the attempted work to leg and strikes him dead in front. Vettoir picks up his third wicket 163/8
    38.6 poor way to go, short ball on leg, Shuvo tries to extract his gloves from the situation but can only get a faint touch through to Brendon McCullum 161/7
    41.4 thin snick behind, Razzak flails the bat at a short delivery outside off to the detriment of his batting average and his team 168/9
    not out
    44.2 goes for an agricultural slog, hits it miles but only in height rather than distance, Watling settles under it and takes the catch with ease. Bangladesh all out for 174 174/10

    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

Match Notes

  • The batting let us down again - Vettori

    Daniel Vettori, at the receiving end of an unprecedented whitewash at the hands of Bangladesh, was critical of New Zealand's batting which failed once again in a series the hosts won 4-0

  • Rubel, Shakib savour the winning habit

    On a day when Bangladesh went one better than the series victory, completing a memorable whitewash against top opposition, it was Rubel Hossain's abilities with new ball and old that made the difference

  • Bangladesh complete clean sweep

    Rubel Hossain ripped through the New Zealand top order and then came back to nip out the final wicket in a tense finish as Bangladesh made it 4-0 in front of a delirious crowd
