Match Notes

  • 'It took some time to shake off the nerves'

    In less than two years, Ish Sodhi has gone from being a net bowler to a Test cricketer. He talks about his progress through the ranks and his surreal Test debut

  • Sodhi, the answer to a 40-year quest

    Ish Sodhi exhibits qualities that tempts Andrew Alderson, in the New Zealand Herald to suggest the national side's search for an attacking legspinner might be over

  • Mushfiqur pleased with Test progress

    Mushfiqur Rahim, the Bangladesh Test captain, was pleased to see how his team recovered despite giving up a 155-run lead to the visitors, as rain on the final day ended the match as a draw

  • 'Drawn series a fair result' - McCullum

    New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum has said the 0-0 series score was a "fair result" given the weather in Dhaka and the way both batting units performed in the Chittagong Test

  • Anamul treading on last-chance territory

    Anamul Haque's poor performance against New Zealand has put his place in the team in danger. While the batsman's technique is not quite ready for Test cricket, the tendency of the Bangladesh selectors to drop openers frequently is also a problem
