That's all from our side for this Test. Thanks for joining us. See you soon.

Williamson: Fantastic performance. We needed to score quickly to have a chance to win here. It was about playing good cricket. We were under some pressure after the first day. I think Bangladesh bowled well in the first wicket without much luck. On Watling hamstring injury: Hoping it's minor and he will back soon.

Mahmudullah: Very disappointing. We could have done lot better. We are much better than that. Going forward, we need to adept as soon as we can. I dropped [Taylor's] catch and then another was dropped in the slips. Had we taken those, story might have been different.

Ross Taylor is Man of the Match. "I was trying to be positive at 8 for 2 but it changed the next day," he says. "A green wicket always plays on your mind. He [Crowe] was a mentor to me and I am sure he would have been proud."

1.10pm A win by an innings and 12 runs for New Zealand who effectively needed just a little over two days to wrap up the Test. Ross Taylor's 200 yesterday set up the declaration for New Zealand yesterday and today, Wagner picked up a five-wicket haul in another relentless display of short-ball barrage.

Wagner to Ebadot Hossain, OUT

that's a five-wicket haul for Wagner. And the series for New Zealand which means they stay at No. 2 in the ICC rankings irrespective of the what happens in the third Test. Coming back to the delivery, it was full and straight, Ebadat backs away but fails to put bat on the ball and the ball clatters into the middle and leg stump

Boult to Abu Jayed, no run

fuller around off and angling away, hangs his bat out and gets beaten

Boult to Abu Jayed, no run

short ball aimed at the batsman who gets in a tangle, fending at the ball, as it whizzes past. A loud appeal for caught-behind, not-out says umpire Palliyaguruge. Southee decides to reviews but nothing on the HotSpot, a flat line on Snicko and New Zealand lose their review

We have a 15-minute extension here as Bangladesh are eight down

Boult to Mustafizur, OUT

and the middle stump is out of the ground. Fuller on the stumps, backs away and looks to smash down the ground, misses and the stumps are in a disarray
