that's it, Bangladesh are all out in under 10 overs and New Zealand pocket the series 3-0. Full outside off, and Nasum skies it for an easy catch to extra cover
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...
103.4kmh, angling in from around the wicket, he sweeps and misses to take it on the body
on length on off, he cross-bats it to leg for two
68 required from the last over. Phillips to bowl from around the wicket
almost in the block hole, and he digs it out on the off side past mid-off for one
104.9kmh, another slower ball, this one is short and he pulls it for one
130kmh this time, Rubel gets bat on it this time but he finds extra cover
another slower ball - just 98.3kmh - and beats him on the off side with a full delivery
Bangladesh could be all out here in under 9 overs
another knuckle ball, this time Mosaddek swings on the off side and sends that high before Will Young runs back and dives with perfect timing to get both hands to it
targets the top of off stump with this nicely bowled knuckle ball, and Mosaddek chops it late to get two behind square on the off side
Southee comes back, he's on a hat-trick
Nilay: "Nice tactic by Southee to have a go on tailenders for the hat-trick!"
117.7kmh, slower than many of his slower balls, it's back of length so Mosaddek waits and then steers it to third man
he backs away and Ferguson follows him with a back of length ball, worked down towards long on for one
a full toss this time and it's pushed down to long off for one
139.8kmh, quick and down the leg side for a wide
Pulls the length back this time and Rubel slaps it to extra cover for a quick single
140.3kmh, full and quick, just outside the off stump in the block hole and Rubel can't get any bat on it
Slower ball at 123kmh from the back of the hand, but the target is the same: the stumps. Full and straight, Taskin wants to swing it away but he's deceived by the pace and loses his stumps
More pace, from Ferguson

Around the wicket for the last ball
almost in the black hole outside off, Taskin clears his front foot this time and drives it just past a diving mid-off for four

full and quick, another swing from Shoriful but he's bowled this time. Bangladesh are crumbling here. This was close to 140kmh, full on the base of the leg stump and goes under the bat
