Commentary (Bangladesh 1st Innings)

That's it from us then. Join us again on 6th November, 1330 local time, 1300 IST for the Only T20I in Dhaka. Until then, good bye and take care.

The winning captain, Mushfiqur Rahim is the Man of the Series.

Shamsur Rahman is the Man of the Match for his 96-run knock which included seven fours and four sixes.

Shamsur Rahman missed out on his century but he laid the early foundation for his team. McClenaghan picked up a couple of wickets but that didn't made any difference. Naeem Islam with his fifty and some contributions from the middle order helped Bangladesh inflict the first whitewash. A comprehensive series victory for the Asian minnows.

Some superb celebrations, the batsmen are being hugged by their team-mates. The crowd goes wild. Bangladesh have clinched the series 3-0. The Asian minnows successfully chased 308 as they whitewash the Kiwis. New Zealand got a good total but due to batsmen friendly rules these days, no total looks safe. Bangladesh batsmen played well to chase it down. They got off to a good start but New Zealand provided some breakthroughs in middle. That was not enough though.
