On the eve of New Zealand cricket's crisis meeting from the tour of Bangladesh, it's reported from Dhaka that the home players have been showered with gifts for their 4-nil one day clean sweep over the Black Caps, including new cars and plots of land in the smartest part of the capital.

Banks and other big businesses have plied the team with gifts and cash prizes and 23 year old Shakib al Hasan, the player of the series, was presented with two cars and extra bonuses.

Bangladesh is co-hosting the World Cup with India and Sri Lanka between February and April next year.
