Here's the presentation:

Glenn Phillips is the Man of the Series: I'm really comfortable with where my game is. Middle order role is different from what I've done in previous years. The role is about when to hold, when to attack and now getting a decent chance to bowl is amazing as well. This team has been brilliant throughout the series, and even today. We love being around each other and it's this kind of a culture which produces winning results. Anybody that plays in front of a crowd has fun.

Finn Allen is the Man of the Match: Obviously good fun to bat with Guptill. We thought we'd give ourselves a chance and play some shots. It was nice to get out there, a bit intimidating but fun to watch Guptill hit everything out of the park. He helps you keep calm. I was looking at it as just another game, trying to stick to the basics, keep watching the ball, hitting it hard. The environment is so relaxed and chill, it's quite easy to come into this kind of a side and some pretty good seniors to learn from.

Liton Das: We are not playing good cricket in batting and fielding. That's what cost us. We play in subcontinent tracks but here we need to think about how to play teams like New Zealand on bouncy tracks. We are learning, learning about the wicket and conditions and how to play here.

Tim Southee: It's very nice to finish on that sort of note, it's been a great summer. Astle has been on the sidelnes for a while, it's not been easy for him and in a 10-over game he's taken four wickets. So you keep training, keep working. We appreciate how the people struck around in the rain and it's great to play in front of the crowd.

The New Zealand team lifts the trophy, at the end of a very successful summer for them. That's all we have today from here, from Vishal and Shashank. Keep tuning in for more live games, interviews, and all the updates right here. Ciao!

11.07pm The players get together to shake hands as a dejected Bangladesh side go down in another one-sided affair, bowled out for just 76 while chasing a stiff 142 in 10 overs. Only one of their batsmen survived more than 10 balls (opener Mohammad Naim) and only two others reached double figures. Their approach was right when they started the chase with attacking intent, but regular fall of wickets never gave them a chance as the NZ quicks hardly gave them any pace. Finn Allen was clearly the top performer today, with his breathtaking 71 off just 29 balls, studded with 10 fours and three sixes which also put up an opening stand of 85 in under six overs. We'll bring the presentation soon...
