That's all from our side for this game. See you soon.

Mahmudullah: The bowlers did a great job once again to keep New Zealand to a low total. All the bowlers, Nasum, Mahedi, Mustafizur, bowled well. The batters tried their best. We just needed a good partnership in the middle and Naim and I tried that. Naim batted well and then Afif was good. We tried to build partnerships and take the game deep. The credit for the series win goes to the team management and boys. There one more opportunity and hopefully, we will regroup together and try to win the game.

Nasum Ahmed is the Player of the Match. He says, in Bengali and I try to translate, that he is happy with the series win. There was no pressure from the captain. I tried to give as few runs as possible. The wicket was turning, my only focus was to land the ball on one spot.

Tom Latham: We were slightly under par. We were looking at 100-110 but credit to Bangladesh they batted. After a couple of early wicket, they had it under control. The way Mahmudullah finished, credit to them. I am pleased the way we could take it to the last over. Youngy played a good innings to take us to a competitive score. We lost quick wickets and it was hard to keep the momentum going. The way we have been able to adjust slightly on different surfaces, a young group who hasn't played much international cricket, and a lot of us haven't played here, we hope to put a near-perfect performance in the fifth game.

Time for the presentation ceremony.

Mukul Hasan: "I just want to congratulate Mahmudullah, he deserves it but doesn't always really get the credit he deserves! "

Jawad: "T20Is were supposed to be full entertainment, these are like breakups."

7.15pm Another series win for Bangladesh, this is their first against New Zealand in this format. New Zealand fought hard despite soring only 93 but an off day for Cole McConchie meant they couldn't strike at regular intervals. Ajaz Patel still gave them an opportunity when he had Mahmudullah stranded halfway down the track but Latham missed the stumping. That was the only mistake Mahmudullah made as he steered Bangladesh home with a calculated knock.
