Black Caps win second Test against Bangladesh in three days

Black Caps win second Test against Bangladesh in three days

After play on the first two days was lost, the covers were removed Sunday to reveal a bright green pitch which offered bounce and seam movement. They then received a lesson in seam bowling technique for Bangladesh's Abu Jayed who hit a flawless length, made the ball duck about and dismissed New Zealand openers Tom Latham for 4 and Jeet Raval for 3.

Tamim has been in outstanding form in the New Zealand series, scoring 126 and 74 in the first test at Hamilton which New Zealand won by an innings and 52 runs.

New Zealand were ruthless with the ball as they wrapped up victory in their rain-affected second Test against Bangladesh by an innings and 12 runs.

The New Zealand board took to twitter to inform about the skipper's injury, "Injury update: Kane Williamson will not return to the field today as he rests his left shoulder ahead of further investigation (MRI scan) tomorrow morning".

But New Zealand's use of Wagner was an effective admission that its new ball bowlers weren't good enough to use the conditions to their advantage.

"The game situation, being a three-day Test, we had to be a bit more proactive and score quickly and try first of all to get a lead and try to build it up as quick as possible to give our bowlers a bit of a chance".

"If things progress as we hope, then still going to the IPL shouldn't be a problem to him", said Stead.

On a day of batting milestones, Williamson took 67 balls to join Taylor atop the New Zealand batting list with 30 half centuries.

And performances of several players in the side have come under scrutiny as a outcome of the sorry capitulation at home. The extravagance cost both Pant and Vijay Shankar (16) their wickets as they went after Lyon and Zampa respectively.


Taylor went on to his 18th century from 97 balls, an astonishing strike rate in hard conditions.

At lunch Taylor was 103 not, Henry Nicholls was 9 and New Zealand trailed Bangladesh by 13 first-innings runs with five sessions remaining. Piling on more pressure, Nicholls reached a chanceless century from 122 balls and was out for 107 shortly before the declaration.

Liton Das (33) and Soumya Sarkar (20) chipped in with small contributions for the tourists, but they were unable to make the most of the platform set by Tamim and Shadman.

Boult clean bowled Tamim Iqbal (4) and then had Mominul Haque (10) edging to Tim Southee at third slip.
