MARTY MELVILLE / AFP

New Zealand have wrapped up the three-match Test series against Bangladesh with a game to spare.

The Black Caps completed an innings and 12-run win in the second Test in Wellington to race to a 2-0 lead in the contest.

The hosts needed only one extended session on day five to grab the last seven Bangladesh wickets.

Neil Wagner led the way with figures of 5-45, while fellow left-arm fast bowler Trent Boult took 4-52.

The result also guarantees New Zealand the No. 2 test spot in the world at the end of the season.
