Celebration all around. Williamson is being presented the trophy by Sir Richard Hadlee. They're all smiles, this has been a series win well-deserved. Hope you enjoyed our coverage, but New Zealand's home season is far from over. They host South Africa now for one T20I at Eden Park (17 February) followed by an ODI series and three Tests. Do join us then. There's plenty of cricket elsewhere to keep you connected. Hope to see you soon. Cheers and thanks for joining us.

For those who missed the action, here's our collection of the 'Plays of the day.' If pictures are what you fancy, we've got some of the best pictures from the game. And last but not least, here's Brydon Coverdale with the match bulletin

Here's the presentation

"Both games were fairly similar. The wickets were similar, on these grounds you're never out of the game. Australia showed why they're a top side, at times we felt we had them, but they kept coming hard. Credit to our guys for sucking up the pressure," Kane Williamson says. "Ross Taylor's was a brilliant hundred. The way he rotated the strike was superb. He hardly faced any dot balls, was able to build partnerships with the top order and the lower order.

Aaron Finch says Australia always felt it was a total they could chase down. "Fifties don't win you games. We saw Ross Taylor get a hundred. That is what we needed to do. Trent Boult bowled beautifully, credit to the groundsman. The surface was fantastic. The way we've dragged games back is something we'll take back."

Trent Boult is the Player of the Match. "It felt pretty good, one hell of a game," he says. "We were a few runs short, but we still finished nicely with Mitch. The conditions are familiar, I've played some cricket here. Couple of deliveries jumped and gripped, it was a two-paced wicket. This win is satisfying. We had a couple of tough lessons on tour in Australia couple of months ago."

6.50pm I wouldn't want to be picking the Man of the Match award, folks. Ross Taylor came up with a special century and two outstanding slip catches. Trent Boult ran in fast, swung the ball late and kept chipping away at the wickets every time his captain threw him the ball. Who is your pick? For the record, New Zealand have moved above India to No. 3 in the ODI rankings as a result of this win.

Most consecutive bilateral ODI series wins at home: 17 SA 2002 to 2009, 9 WI 1981 to 1990, 8 NZ 2015 to 2017 , 7 Eng, 2010 to 2012, SA 2013 to 2017*

Richard : "Boult deserves MOM no question. Today's game is heavily weighted in favour of the batsman and bowlers are ignored too often. Great performance from Taylor, but today's Boult's day."

Boult to Hazlewood, OUT

you beauty, Boult! Six wickets and New Zealand have regained the Chappell-Hadlee Trophy. Subtle change in pace with that length ball, Hazlewood look to force that through the off side, plays outside the line and can only get a thick inside edge back onto the stumps. New Zealand win the series 2-0. These are Boult's best figures in ODIs, his second five-wicket haul in his career, and both have come against Australia. The last time he did it - at the 2015 World Cup at Eden Park - was equally special.

Boult to Hazlewood, FOUR runs

crunched. Into the point boundary in a jiffy! Too short, enough width in the world for him to unfurl that cut shot. Australia need more of these

46.4
Boult to Hazlewood, no run

excellent bouncer, angled in from wide of the crease, Hazlewood ducks under that one

46.3
Boult to Hazlewood, no run

he's bowling yorkers on demand now, how did Hazlewood keep that out? Very, very close again. Right on middle, just managed to bring his bat down in time. Didn't have a high backlift, which allowed him time

46.2
Boult to Hazlewood, no run

full and straight on off, Hazlewood just about manages to keep that out. Went for the yorker this time

46.1
W
Boult to Zampa, OUT

he's got five! Ross Taylor was brought in at wide first slip position precisely prior to this delivery and the plan comes off. This is a cutter, gets a bit of grip and bounce, Zampa hangs his bat out without any conviction, gets a thick edge and Taylor does the rest.

Adam Zampa c Taylor b Boult 1 (8m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20

One final over to go from Boult. His captain will be itching for at least one wicket. Can he deliver? Three-way meeting between Williamson, Boult and Southee

Southee to Zampa, 1 run

gets a thick inside edge down to long-on, they surely won't mind Zampa on strike

45.5
Southee to Zampa, no run

full and wide outside off, looks to squeeze it behind point but ends up getting a thick inside edge that rolls to the right of Latham, who effects a one-handed stop

45.4
Southee to Zampa, no run

stunning yorker, point precision. Zampa needs to be given credit too for keeping that out

45.3
Southee to Zampa, no run

full and tails back in late towards middle, pushed to cover

45.2

Southee to Starc, 1 run

hammered down the ground, long-on comes around to his right to cut that off

45.1
Southee to Starc, no run

slower and fuller on middle, defended to the leg side. Looked like Starc was winding up to go leg side but couldn't hit it anywhere because of the length

another toe-crusher which Starc somehow manages to keep away, gets it to square leg as they steal a run

44.5
Boult to Starc, no run

full and tailing back into middle and leg to hit Starc flush on the pad, but the ball would have missed leg by a mile. Reverse swing, and how

44.4

Boult to Cummins, OUT

one shot too many and he's gone! Cummins looks to go through with the pull but was beaten for pace and hurried into the stroke, ended up lobbing it to midwicket where Santner made no mistake. Relief in the New Zealand camp. Is that it for Australia?

Boult to Cummins, 1 run

angles a short ball back into middle from around the stumps, steered using the width to square third man

Boult is back

Kiran: "KW appears more worried about who will bowl the 49th and 50th over and that has cost him. Neesham brought back and then Ferguson. Satner bowling another after going for 20. Boult or Southee or both should've been bowling trying to bowl Australia out. His strike bowlers may not have enough runs to play with. "
