As easy as that with Wagner wrapping up the game and the series. Full and straight does the trick with Ebadat not wanting to get in line. Wagner finishes with five and he has been a real thorn in the side of Bangladesh. New Zealand have thoroughly outplayed Bangladesh and managed to win by an innings in less than seven sessions of play. After two days were washed out a result was not looking likely but New Zealand used the conditions perfectly and capitalised on Bangladesh mistakes. Ross Taylor struck a superb double century to set up the win while Trent Boult and Neil Wagner finished with seven and nine wickets respectively. For Bangladesh they have one more Test left to see if they can salvage anything from this tour. They have shown flashes of what they can do but not managed to put anything meaningful together. Join us for the next match at Christchurch to see what happens.

The back and forth between Mahmudullah and Wagner finally comes to an end with Wagner having the last laugh. The Bangladesh captain comes dancing down the wicket and can't get hold of the short ball to clear the rope. Another smart catch for Boult down at fine leg.
