12.40pm That was some outstanding glove work. Definitely a welcome departure after all the dropped catches and fluffing vital chances on the field. New Zealand end with a lead of 65 which is quite handy. Bangladesh have around 40 minutes to bat before the teams break for lunch. Taskin showed what pacers can do in this surface with that one over before he was taken off. Can Boult and Southee find something on this surface too? And how quickly can Bangladesh erase this deficit? Join us shortly for the third innings.

Kane: "Quick question about run out for those of us with no TV... had one of his feet been grounded behind the crease or had the feet not made it in yet?" Both feet were inside the crease but in the air when the bails came off. And the bat was not grounded.

Shakib Al Hasan to Wagner, 1 run, OUT, flat ball, pushed through quicker at 91.8kph, clipped through square leg. They have gone upstairs for a run out and guess what, this is a bizarre run out. Wagner cannot believe his luck. Wagner was charging back for the second run and he does well to make it into the crease. But he does not ground his bat. Nurul Hasan shows good presence of mind and flicks the ball back to the stumps after collecting it. Does not even look at the stumps as he does so, just throws it back after collecting the throw. And though he has crossed the crease and is well inside it, the feet are in the air at the point when the bails come off and the third umpire gives it out. Wagner is dazed as he walks off but he pays the price for not dragging his bat along the crease
