New Zealand break their hoodoo against the home side on their own soil but not as easily as they would have expected after piling up 204 on the back of Devcich and Munro-driven aggression. Bangladesh came out swinging and despite the loss of early wickets, they were ahead of the required run rate for the majority of their chase. Ultimately the failure of one of their fast scorers to bat through saw them drop away near the end

Sunny Khan: "Kudos to the Kiwis. Bangladesh showed intent an played positively as well. Good performance from both teams."

Presentation time now with the Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in attendance.

Mushfiqur Rahim: We gave 15-20 runs extra but at the end it was a difficult task and when you lose wickets it's hard to score 10 runs per over. We lost early wickets in the Powerplay and that slowed us down. New Zealand played really well and we didn't bowl to our plans or execute well. Thanks to the crowd for supporting us and hopefully we'll be back in January against Sri Lanka to play some more good cricket.

The Man of the Match is Colin Munro: "A tough tour for the boys, Millsy took over and said we need to go home with a win. [The switch hit] comes from my hockey background, have worked on it for a couple of years and good to see I can score runs with it."

Kyle Mills: "Tough couple of weeks, pleasing that we stepped up today especially the four-five young guys. Great opportunity for us to stand up and happy we did. Vibrant crowds here and we've been privileged to play in front of these crowds."

New Zealand are handed the Twenty20 trophy and Bangladesh the ODI series trophy by Sheikh Hasina as the home side prepare to pose in recognition of their deserved whitewash of the visitors in the 50-over format. That concludes our coverage of this series, we hope you have enjoyed it and thanks to all who have followed and commented, we do read all your comments even if we can't publish all of them. We are on Twitter @ESPNcricinfo as am I @MannerOfSpeakin should you wish to keep updated that way. Otherwise this is Avi Singh signing off on behalf of our staff in the UK, India, Bangladesh and New Zealand wishing you all well until next time. Farewell!
