New Zealand cleaned up Zimbabwe's lower order after lunch on the final day of the second test to dismiss the hosts for 132 and seal a 254-run win clinching the two-match series 2-nil.

Zimbabwe lost its final five wickets in the space of 7.4 overs for just two runs, with spinners Ish Sodhi and Martin Guptill doing the damage.

New Zealand set Zimbabwe a victory target of 387 after declaring its second innings on 166-2.

Zimbabwe resumed Wednesday on 58 for 3, lost first-innings century-maker Craig Ervine and nightwatchman Donald Tiripano before lunch, and then collapsed in the second session as the wicket started to turn.
