The margin could have been bigger but for Liton Das’ counter-attacking 102 for a Bangladesh side who had won the opening Test in Mount Maunganui by eight wickets.

Kyle Jamieson (4-82) and Neil Wagner (3-77) claimed the bulk of the Bangladesh wickets.

Ross Taylor, playing his final Test, sealed New Zealand’s victory by removing the last Bangladesh batter, Ebadot Hossain.
