That's it from this game but that isn't the end of the cricket coverage on Sportskeeda! If you didn't get enough of T10 in this fixture, surely you would love ECS T10 Venice action. All you need to do is switch over tabs and follow the action like never before. But until next time, this is Dwijesh along with my colleague Prashanth signing off! Good bye and take care!
Tim Southee (New Zealand captain): It's very nice to finish off like this. We've played well this summer with a lot of youngsters coming to the fore. Todd Astle has been fantastic. He had to wait for his chance and doing well in a T10 game is great. The fans have been great. Appreciate all the support and playing in New Zealand has been great. Like to thank Bangladesh for touring Nee Zealand and bringing some normalcy back to the summer. We'll need to sit back, enjoy and relax. We've got six weeks before we leave to England but we're quite excited for it.
Liton Das (Bangladesh captain): We haven't batted and fielded well at all. Our bowling has been good but we need to improve. We need to think and find out ways to score runs and pick wickets. We need to understand the conditions better and play smart cricket. We aren't a weak or young team. We've played a few World Cups, we are learning how to play in such conditions and next time when we play here, the results will be better.
Glenn Phillips: At the moment, I'm comfortable in the middle order role and comfortable knowing when to go and when to hold back. The bowling part is going good and it's a good confidence builder. We've got a great team and there's a good culture in the team. We love playing with each other, which helps win games. Everyone wants to have fun while playing cricket, which is what I try to do as well!
Glenn Phillips is the man of the series!
Finn Allen: It was helpful to have Guptill to calm me down and get the pressure of me with those big shots. I tried to look at this as just another game and try to clear the boundary as I do in the domestic circuit. The environment is chill and relaxed and I want to keep learning and keep doing what I do.
Finn Allen is the man of the match!
New Zealand thump Bangladesh by 65 runs!

And just like that, New Zealand beat Bangladesh by a whopping margin and seal a clean sweep at the expense of the tourists. They never looked troubled at any point with none of the Bangladesh batsmen really hanging around.

Tim Southee, the Kiwi captain, set the ball rolling with two wickets in the very first over. While he sent Soumya Sarkar back before he could add to his 4-ball 10, Southee got the better of his counterpart Liton Das off the very next ball. We did get to see a bit of batting flair from Naim Shaikh, whose 13-ball 19 was the highlight, signalling Bangladesh's poor returns with the bat.

Naim Sheikh, who has been the star of the show with the bat in this series, looked to attack the pacers and even managed a couple of boundaries of Milne. However, wickets falling around him just didn't help his or his team's cause!

Just as Naim was getting along with his partners, Todd Astle picked as many as four wickets in the middle overs to kill off any chance that the tourists were nurturing against the spinners. Lockie Ferguson also put up a good spell of fast bowling with figures of 1/13. Milne and Phillips also chipped in with a wicket each as Bangladesh went through the motions towards the end. They were bowled out for 76 with three balls to spare courtesy of some inspired bowling by the Kiwi bowlers!

With this win, New Zealand ends its home series having won all their legs, including a stunning series win against Australia. Bangladesh, on the other hand, have some work to do although they didn't have their big four in Mahmudullah, Shakib, Tamim and Rahim in this fixture. Nevertheless, we will be seeing a lot of the Bangladesh players in the coming few months with the T20 WC preparations set to kick off.

Don't go anywhere as we've got the presentation to follow!
9.3 Glenn Phillips to Nasum Ahmed, OUT! CAUGHT! New Zealand win by 65 runs, length ball outside the off-stump and it is lobbed straight into the hands of Southee at covers. Clinical from the Kiwis!
9.2 Glenn Phillips to Nasum Ahmed, fired in full and angling down the leg side, Nasum tries to slog sweep this one but he is beaten and hit on the pads
9.1 Glenn Phillips to Nasum Ahmed, full in the blockhole from Phillips, Nasum gets this one away to the leg side for a brace
A rare misfield on the field by the Kiwis but that wouldn't worry them too much with Bangladesh needing a whopping 68 runs off the last six balls! Just the mere formalities left to be finished.

Glenn Phillips to bowl the final over!
