Scorecard summary
New Zealand307/5(50 overs)
Bangladesh309/6(49.2 overs)

New Zealand claimed they were complacent and underprepared in 2010. This time they undertook a training camp in Sri Lanka beforehand. It's made no difference to the results as the home side sweep the visitors again, today on the back of a well-constructed run chase courtesy of Shamsur's 96 and supporting efforts from (in particular) Naeem and Nasir which meant that Ross Taylor's century and Colin Munro's aggressive 85 were in vain

Man of the Match is Shamsur Rahman and Man of the Series is Mushfiqur Rahim. Unfortunately we can't bring you the presentation so that concludes our coverage for today. Do join me on Wednesday at 1.00pm local time to see if the only Twenty20 International will bring more joy for the home side or if the visitors can finally break this losing streak in Bangladesh. Until then, this is Avi Singh thanking you for following us tonight and wishing you well wherever you are. Cheers!
