It is all over and it is a draw, the players shake hands. New Zealand wins the two match series 1-0. Good knocks by Ryder and McCullum. For Bangladesh the lower-order did well to avoid the follow-on. Vettori again was the pick of the bowlers with five wickets and he is the Man-of-the-Match. He finished with 14 wickets in the series and he is also the Man-of-the-Series.

Thanks to Bill Andersson and Sohel Awrangzeb for all the updates. We hope you have enjoyed the commentary, do join us again next time, until then this is Binoy George signing off.
