Tim Southee became the fifth New Zealander to take 200 test wickets as he helped spur his team to a nine-wicket win over Bangladesh on Monday in the second test, completing a sweep of the two-match series.

Southee followed Richard Hadlee, Daniel Vettori, Chris Cairns and Chris Martin to the 200-wicket milestone, taking 3-48 in Bangladesh's second innings of 173 as New Zealand achieved victory with remarkable alacrity given the day started with the test evenly poised.

Bowled out in 52.5 overs, Bangladesh left New Zealand just 109 to win the match and it achieved that target with one wicket down in the 19th over.
