New Zealand won by 3 wickets . This is the second time they have chased down a score over 300. Wonderful batting from Vettori and Flynn to take New Zealand one up in the series, they are relived to have won this. Bangladesh were very good for four days but it was New Zealand who came up as winners on the final day. For Bangladesh Shakib was outstanding in the first innings, he bowled his heart out today, finished with 9 wickets in the match. Vettori picks up the Man-of-the-Match award for his wonderful knocks with the bat and also picking up 9 wickets for the match, an all-round performance.
