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.

Half volley, off stump backing away defending, missed to.
55.5 - N Wagner to E Hossain
Full toss, outside off stump backing away Steer, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Watling.
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.

Back of a length, off stump down the track pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to fine leg, by Boult.
55.3 - N Wagner to M Riyad
Back of a length, off stump on the back foot glancing, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for no runs.
Shot of the day and maybe even the Test. Backing away opening up the off side and carving it up and over for six.

Short, outside off stump backing away cutting, well timed in the air under control over deep backward point for 6 runs.
55.1 - N Wagner to M Riyad

54.5 - T Boult to A Jayed
Length ball, off stump backing away defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs.
A brilliant delivery to send down to the new batsman. Abu Jayed gets himself into an awkward position but luckily for him the ball has flown through without touching anything.
54.4 - T Boult to A Jayed
Short, down leg side swayed away Fended, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, appeal made for Caught (Sub).
Middle stump sent flying out of the ground. Boult went full and straight to the number nine and he is too good for Mustafizur. A fun cameo while it lasted.
