BJ Watling claimed a New Zealand Test record as the Blackcaps hammered Bangladesh in Hamilton.

The Kiwi wicketkeeper made his 202nd Test dismissal, catching Ebadot Hossain off the bowling of Tim Southee, to move beyond Adam Parore in the all-time standings having earlier drawn level with his compatriot by snaffling a chance off Tamim Iqbal.

Watling, who made his debut in 2009 but first took the gloves for his country in 2012, plans to extend his record in the future.

"It's been a bit of toil for the last six or seven years, but I'm proud of the achievement and hopefully there are more to come," he said.

BJ Watling has made 202 Test dismissals for New Zealand

New Zealand dismissed Bangladesh for 429 in the visitors' second innings to secure an innings-and-52-run victory.

"It was nice to finish after a tough day out there. The boys toiled away and we got the rewards at the end," he said.

"We didn't expect them to fall over and they have got some good players in their side.

"It was nice batting conditions out there and I thought we executed our plans well when a couple of them played of nicely. But I thought we stuck at it to get the rewards."
