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.
