What an assault by Brendon McCullum, who scored 80 off just 28 deliveries. New Zealand seal the match with 44 overs to spare. What an effort! Two brilliant individual performances by McCullum and Daniel Vettori ensure New Zealand sweep the series and take plenty of confidence into the New Year.

Bangladesh, on the other hand, have a lot to do before the first Test begins on January 4 at 11:00 local, 22:00 GMT. Do join us then. Here's wishing you all a very, very happy New Years! From all of us at Cricinfo, its goodbye for now!
