That's all from our side. See you soon.

Tom Latham: After being under a bit of pressure early on, I think we were outstanding. Devon and Daryl were outstanding. And then obviously the bowlers were good at the top and when you get them three down early, it's very difficult from there. The goal was to come here and win 3-0. From here, it's about keep improving. Neesh with the ball took a step up. We talk about guys stepping up at different times and we saw that today.

Tamim Iqbal: I think we started well with the ball, they were 50-odd for three but those two guys batted really well. Sometimes small things hurt you a lot, catches, missed chances but credit to New Zealand, they were exceptional throughout the series. When you are coming to this part of the world, 300 is chaseable but the way we batted was not on. There were too many loose shots. But all in all, Blackcaps were a much better team. When you come here, you know the ball will nip around, will bounce more. You have to be patient. We played two many loose shots too early and when you are three down after ten over, the game is done. I am not the sort of person who will bring up quarantine issue or say we didn't get time to practice. Simply we didn't play good cricket.

Devon Conway is the Player of the Match. And also the Player of the Series.

Conway: I try to keep things simple. It's just about keep doing simple things for longer. I think credit to Daryl, they way he came and played. It was nice to watch from the other end. I think Taskin bowled really well with the new ball. We knew if we could absorb that pressure, we could score later. I think naturally there is going to be some pressure but I am not thinking too much about that. Taking care of the things I can take care of. Looking forward to the T20I series.

6.28pm A thumping win for New Zealand as they seal the series 3-0. Their day started with a wobble on a green wicket. Towards the end, Mahmudullah and Rubel frustrated their bowlers. But in between, it was all New Zealand. After deciding to bat first, they posted 318 for 6, thanks to maiden ODI hundreds from Devon Conway and Daryl Mitchell. Then Matt Henry dented New Zealand's top order before Neesham picked up middle- and lower-order.

Neesham to Mustafizur, OUT

given lbw but Bangladesh want to review this. A low full toss on the stumps, Mustafizur moves across and looks to flick but misses. The impact is in line and the wickets is umpire's call. So that stays out. Neesham finishes with 5 for 27, his best in ODI cricket
