Colin Munro is named the Man of the Match for his blistering knock down the order in the first innings which set up the big total. That's the end of New Zealand's tour of Bangladesh. With the Test series squared up and being blanked by Bangladesh in the ODIs, the Kiwis take little but appreciable satisfaction back. Until next time, goodbye!
In spite of losing wickets in quick succession, Bangladesh's chase got off to a flier and remained that way for majority of the match. Rahim, Hossain and Mahmudullah did their best with their own cameos but as the end overs approached, the batsmen lost their cool and with the ever-increasing run-rate, things started falling gradually into New Zealand's arms.
Eventually, after getting the match to almost choke in their neck, New Zealand manage a victory here in Bangladesh after what seems like ages. After winning the toss and batting first, Anton Devcich and Colin Munro played wonderfully and helped New Zealand put up 200 plus on a flat, placid wicket.
Tim Southee to Mashrafe Mortaza
NEW ZEALAND WIN BY 15 RUNS! Mortaza strokes a full ball over covers just for one. Wonderful over from Southee in terms of pitching the ball and the Kiwis look a relieved side to win this one-off T20I.
Full again, Mortaza fails to hit and is struck on the pads.
Tim Southee to Al Amin Hossain
Full and tailing onto the pads, Hossain fails to flick and there is a huge appeal from Southee. Seems like there is an inside edge as the umpire signals a run.
FOUR! Chinese cut! A good length ball, Hossain slashes hard and the inside edge takes the ball to the fine leg fence.
In the channel outside off, Al-Amin fails to get bat on that.
Tim Southee to Abdur Razzak
OUT! That will dent Bangladesh's chances! A yorker right on middle, Razzak is too late in bringing his bat down and the stumps are disturbed.
Tim Southee to bowl the final over. 22 is required off 6 balls.
Corey Anderson to Mashrafe Mortaza
Short of a length, Mortaza tries to slash but misses.
DROPPED BY McCLENAGHAN! Confusion all over! Mortaza backs away to try and pull it over square leg but picks out the fielder in the deep. McClenaghan does well to get around the ball but with the incoming keeper, he gets around but fluffs it.
FOUR! Straight back! A good length delivery on middle, Mortaza backs away and smashes it right over the umpire's head.
A bit short in length, Mortaza goes for the big shot but misses.
Abdur Razzak walks in.
Corey Anderson to Mahmudullah
OUT! A huge wicket and the crowd is stunned. A slow length ball, Mahmudullah goes for a biggie but has picked out Ross Taylor at the wide long on fence.
In the channel outside off, Mahmudullah fails to get bat on that.
Kyle Mills to Mashrafe Mortaza
A full ball, mistimed down the ground to end the over.
Mashrafe Mortaza walks in.
Kyle Mills to Sohag Gazi
OUT! A crucial wicket for both sides. Gazi swipes it away through mid-wicket and runs back for the 2nd. The throw from Nathan McCullum is quick at the striker's end and Ronchi does the rest. Third umpire confirms it.
