7pm That's all from us at Dunedin. Hope you enjoyed our coverage of the ODI series. See you soon for the Test series. Till then, on behalf of Ankur Dhawan and Ranjith P, this is Sreshth Shah signing off.

6.50pm We should have the captains' reactions and the trophy presentation now.

Mashrafe, the losing captain: "Boys are disappointed, but Sabbir's ton was a positive. Today's match was alright for 35 overs (in NZ's innings) but after Neesham's knock it was tough."

Martin Guptill, the Man of the Series: "Nice to come back after an injury break. Been working on a couple of balance things. Will do the same before going into the Plunket Shield."

Tim Southee, the Man of the Match: "It was nice, been working on a few things - nice to do it in the middle and contribute to a team win. Just working on to get a few things right. The one-day game has been a bit off, so I've been hitting the deck harder and getting some swing. There's some great competition among the fast bowlers, we are good mates and are pushing each other. Healthy competition. The batting display today was great. Guys who didn't bat a lot in this series got a go today. Looking forward to the Tests, always good to put on the whites."

Bpagur: "BD was consistent, in both good (230+ runs) and bad (failed top order) terms. I hope tigers would go back to the whiteboard and take the lesson learned from this series. We missed Saki bal hasan, hope he will be back soon. Thank you cricinfo."

6.45pm Sabbir the last man to go, and he should walk back proud. But only if he had some support, this game could've gone a completely different way. Southee the star with the ball, while three half-centuries from New Zealand in the first innings will keep them happy going into the World Cup.

Saad: "So our capacity is 250 in a bouncy track against swing bowling and probably we will play in similar tracks in the World Cup against many of the similar attacks. "

Naim Noor Arnob: "6 for Southee means he will start before Henry in the World Cup, right?" -- he's definitely made his case

Vinod Rajpal: "@Sreshth Shah; are u following Oman vs Scotland ODI ?" -- yep, Oman are 32 for no loss already, eight runs better than their show last evening

safwan: "The partnerships required at the beginning came at the end. BD really need to focus. Hope to see some positive cricket in World Cup"

Gaurav Varyani: "Sixer Southee has taken six...."

Southee to Sabbir, OUT

that's six for Southee! Length ball on off, and Sabbir looks to pull. Bat flies out of his hand while playing that shot, while the lobbed chance is taken by Southee running forward. New Zealand win by 88 runs

Sabbir Rahman c & b Southee 102 (158m 110b 12x4 2x6) SR: 92.73
Southee to Sabbir, 1 run, OUT

length ball just outside off, and he flat-bats a shot over mid-on! But the fielder, Santner, chaes the ball, picks it up well and throws it to the bowler in one single motion. Is Rubel short? Of course he is!

Boult to Rubel, 2 runs

length ball, just outside off, and he tries to drive. Slices the shot over point, and enough time to come back for the second run

Rafi Ullah: "Personal achievement also counts for team, Shabbir have taken the total to a respectable position & reduced margin of defeat"

Boult to Rubel, no run

full and wide outside off, and he sticks his bat out. Ball hits his blade and pings away towards point

Boult to Sabbir, 1 run

full on off stump, and he drills this drive to wide long-off. Just the single though

Boult to Sabbir, no run

back of a length on middle, and he lets it go through to the keeper

That was Southee's first five-wicket haul since his five-for against England at World Cup 2015

Faizan Khan: "Why all the impetus is always on Tamim or Shakib to score. younger players have to raise their game standard."

Baundule: "Don't like the extravagant celebration of Shabbir after the century. It shows the priority is his personal achievement, not the team's win."

Southee to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, OUT

full and wide outside off, and he tries to muscle a drive. Slices the shot, and Guptill takes a stunner to earn Southee his five-wicket haul! Guptill runs from point towards the boundary, and with the ball going away, he dives full-stretch to take a screamer. Mehidy goes for an entertaining 37

Mehidy Hasan Miraz c Guptill b Southee 37 (43m 34b 7x4 0x6) SR: 108.82

Hamza Shah: "What if tamim had scored today, BD could have won this match easily due to superb century of sabir" -- Or Liton, Soumya or Mushfiqur

Southee to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, 1 wide

back of a length on off, and the ball goes over his shoulder to the keeper

Southee to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, FOUR runs

back of a length on off, and he top-edges this over Latham's head for four! Mehidy won't mind

Southee to Sabbir, 1 run

hundred for Sabbir! Pulls this length ball to backward square to get there. Fistpumps while running to the other end, then does the sajdeh to wrap up his celebrations. Then raises his bat, and does a 'mouth' sign with his hands. Something for his critics, perhaps

Southee to Sabbir, FOUR runs

full just outside off, and he pierces the gap for a beautiful cover drive! Moves on to 99, just one away from his maiden ODI ton

Southee to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, 1 run

Imam: "While Saifuddin is improving very fast and seems to have more resolve than some of his other colleagues, he is not good enough to be in the XI. He is a good no. 8 batsman and a very good no. 6 bowler. Bits and pieces allrounders do not work any more. However, hopefully he will continue to improve. "

Ferguson to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, 1 run

full and wide outside off, and driven away from his body to deep extra cover

CJ: "@Graeme. That is the reason NZ need a wicket taking spinner in the middle overs, be it Sodhi or Astle. We can't do it all with the new ball."

Ferguson to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, FOUR runs

glanced! Full on middle, and he allows the ball to come to him, before working it past the keeper's left for four!

Doug: "@Graeme Ross Nee how quickly leople forget India being demolished for 92. Both sides currently using this as practice I think."

Ferguson to Sabbir, 1 run

back of a length on off, and he mistimes a pull. Ball hits his body and rolls away to the leg side. Sabbir goes on the floor after getting to the other end
