Match Notes

  • Victory completed in the manner expected

    New Zealand's expected dominance over Bangladesh in their two-Test series was emphatically completed today when the visitors were beaten by an innings and 74 runs at Wellington's Basin Reserve

  • Only a matter of time before Test win No 49 is completed

    Sometime early tomorrow afternoon, weather permitting - always weather permitting in this particular summer - New Zealand captain Stephen Fleming should be celebrating his 15th Test victory and a 2-0 National Bank series win over Bangladesh

  • Bad weather allows Daniel Vettori to put his feet up

    Rain at Wellington's Basin Reserve might have ruined everyone else's day, but New Zealand's left-arm spinner Daniel Vettori wasn't complaining - it was another day for him to put his feet up and rest the ankle that is still recovering from injury

  • Horne's lucky break could be bad news for Bangladesh

    Recalled Test opener Matt Horne had reason to be thanking his lucky stars, not inappropriately given he was dropped when on seven, in New Zealand's reply to Bangladesh's 132 in the second National Bank Test at the Basin Reserve in Wellington today
