Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

Bangladesh have been forced to make one change, due to Robiul Islam's injury. Seamer Al-Amin Hossain will make his debut in his place, becoming the country's 70th Test player. The visitors have included left-arm fast bowler Neil Wagner in place of left-arm spinner Bruce Martin.

This will be Ross Taylor's 50th Test for New Zealand.
