New Zealand win by 66 runs in another thoroughly convincing display. It was set up by the runs of Devon Conway (yep, him again) and Will Young before Ish Sodhi blew away the Bangladesh middle order with four wickets. The visitors didn't fold completely with the bat but where never in the chase. This series now moves to Napier in a couple of days time - a victory there will mean New Zealand have won every series of the season. I'll wrap things up there for this one, but will be back in a little while to bring you coverage of New Zealand against Australia in their first T20I. For now, from Gnasher and Hemant, it's goodbye and thanks for joining us.

18.6

a slower ball back of a length, angled away and nearly carries to short third man. Just one run off the 19th over

18.5
1
Bennett to Saifuddin, 1 run

a straight full toss, swung through midwicket

18.4
Bennett to Saifuddin, no run

another excellent yorker, at off stump, all he can do is keep it out

a yorker at middle and leg, 137kph, digs it out

18.2
Bennett to Saifuddin, no run

driven straight and smashes into the non-striker's stumps, probably prevented a boundary

"You've got to make it look good," Guptill says on the TV coverage

Bennett to Shoriful Islam, OUT

what a catch from Martin Guptill! Another one for the catch-of-the-season contest. Sliced in the air over point, Guptill had to turn and run, the dived and took it over his shoulder

Southee to Saifuddin, FOUR runs

driven wide of mid-off, a full delivery outside off, connects strongly and finds the gap

17.5
1
Southee to Shoriful Islam, 1 run

short of a length outside off, almost swings himself off his feet and takes a toe end to the off side

Southee's getting some treatment after that. Might have taken a nail. Little finger on the right hand by the looks of it

17.4
Southee to Shoriful Islam, no run

dropped by Southee...came round the wicket, it's a full delivery, the drive is crunched back at him and it bursts through. He's in a bit of pain. Clipped the end of the fingers. Tough chance

17.4
1w
Southee to Shoriful Islam, 1 wide

very short outside off, swing and a miss, called wide

17.3

Southee to Shoriful Islam, FOUR runs

full outside off, a powerful swing through the off side, beats cover and races away

17.2
Southee to Shoriful Islam, no run

an appeal for caught behind as he swings at a very full ball outside off, given not out and Southee calls the review. He seems to have missed this by some distance...by a country mile, in fact

17.1

Southee to Saifuddin, 1 run

full outside off, slower ball, lofted down the ground
