4:55 The best of the action as Neil Zealand completed an innings victory over Bangladesh

New Zealand humbled Bangladesh by an innings and 12 runs in a rain-affected second Test to claim the three-match series.

The Black Caps have pulled off an unlikely win at the Basin Reserve on the final day of their second Test against Bangladesh thanks to a fine morning spell from Neil Wagner and Trent Boult.

Captain Mahmudullah provided the only real resistance for the visitors with a counter-attacking 67, while Mohammad Mithun scored a patient 47 and had held off New Zealand's bowlers late on the fourth day.

Tamim has been in outstanding form in the New Zealand series, scoring 126 and 74 in the first test at Hamilton which New Zealand won by an innings and 52 runs.

Williamson departed to have scans on a shoulder and pectoral injury - sustained when he fell in the field - with New Zealand 180-3.

The first two days of the match were entirely lost to rain and when ground staff peeled back the covers under a heavy overcast sky and amid an eager audience of players on Sunday batsmen audibly gasped.

Williamson batted with the limitation of a painful shoulder injury and was out shortly before lunch for 74.

On the morning of the match, New Zealand's largest Sunday newspaper ran a column denouncing his use of bodyline or leg theory as intimidatory and unsafe.

Bangladesh could have made the ideal start to the day, only for Mahmudullah and Shadman Islam to put down Taylor on 20 off Abu Jayed (3-94).

"I think we all saw how green it was and we wanted to be positive because we knew there was probably going to be a ball with your name on it", Taylor said.

In doing so, Williamson joined Taylor atop the New Zealand batting list with 30 half centuries in tests but only minutes later Taylor moved to 31 with a half century from 61 balls.

Nicholls swept Taijul Islam to the boundary to bring up his fifth century in the second over after tea, but only faced another seven deliveries before Taijul bowled him for 107.

Liton Das (33) and Soumya Sarkar (20) chipped in with small contributions for the tourists, but they were unable to make the most of the platform set by Tamim and Shadman.
