Right, then. Hope you all enjoyed the coverage. Do join us for the first of three T20Is on Tuesday. Until then, it's goodbye from all of us here. Cheers!

6.25pm It has been a comprehensive rout. Bangladesh were undone by pace and bounce in the first two games. Today, they stuttered and stumbled against spin after a terrific century stand by openers Tamim Iqbal and Imrul Kayes. The nature of collapses is certain to give them plenty to think about. Bangladesh made strides this year, but the end has been quite disappointing. They will have an opportunity to make amends in the three T20Is.

Kane Williamson is the Player of the Match for his unbeaten 95. "The positive is we improved in every game," he says. "Credit to Bangladesh for fighting in conditions they aren't entirely used to. The way seamers adjusted their lengths was very very good, in addition to how Jeets and Santner bowled. Neil Broom adjusted superbly on two different surfaces, he's a very, very good player. Going to the subcontinent is tough, coming back here, you can try hard to get results. It's nice to get a series win. I'm always working to improve, it's nice to contribute to the team's win today."

"We had our opportunities, but couldn't fire together as a team," says Mashrafe Mortaza. "After five years we're playing here. It's difficult to adjust, but yes, we are improving. There's still a long way to go in this tour. We'll come back strong."
