Trent Boult1133833.45537000
58.4 to Taijul Islam, trapped in front, Taijul though has reviewed it. Fuller on middle and leg, Taijul was moving towards the off side, looks to flick and misses. Nothing on the HotSpot or Snikco. It pitched around middle, hit in front of leg and would have gone on to hit the leg stump. It stays out and Bangladesh lose their review. 206/7
58.6 to Mustafizur Rahman, fuller around off, Mustafizur was hoping for it to move away and therefore shoulders arms, but it keeps coming in with the angle and clatters into the off stump to the batsman's horror. 206/8
60.6 to Abu Jayed, fuller on the stumps, backs away and looks to smash it on the off side, misses and Boult hits. 211/10
Tim Southee1525213.46668021
59.5 to Litton Das, length outside off, stays back and opens the face of the bat to run it down, but ends up hitting it straight to Williamson at gully. Southee gets his first wicket as well. 207/9
Colin de Grandhomme701512.14321000
20.4 to Shadman Islam, gone, de Grandhomme finally makes the breakthrough. Shadman's feet haven't moved all too enthusiastically today, and this ball tests his footwork alright. Angling into a fourth-stump line, pitching on a good length, straightening away. Presses half-forward to block and sends a thick edge into the lap of Ross Taylor falling to his right at first slip. 75/1
Matt Henry1506714.46609100
41.3 to Soumya Sarkar, the short ball gets another, and Soumya has to walk back. This one, angling across to off stump, actually wasn't short enough to pull, and Soumya ends up swinging at it with an angled bat, hitting from down to up. Ends up ballooning it high in the air behind the wicket, and Watling takes it easily after moving a few yards to his right. 152/5
Neil Wagner1342842.15603000
32.3 to Mominul Haque, another appeal for caught-behind and given again. This time Mominul is walking back. Short of length near the rib cage, Mominul looks to get inside the line and leave it alone but it brushes the glove and Watling moves across to take it comfortably. Wagner gets his man eventually. 119/2
34.6 to Mohammad Mithun, Wagner gets his man, just like the last time. Short of length outside off this time, Mithun was on the back foot, looking to get over the bounce and drop it down but it doesn't rise as much as Mithun expected. Gets an inside edge and Watling gobbles it again. 127/3
36.3 to Tamim Iqbal, Wagner strikes again, and he gets the big wicket with another short ball. Gets up to just about stomach height, and Tamim ends up cramped for room as he looks to pull. Ends up as more of a flick than a pull, and the ball balloons up for Southee to take a simple catch at square leg. 134/4
48.5 to Mahmudullah, gone, Wagner is causing all kinds of discomfort here. Mahmudullah has been jumping back and across at everything, and this one isn't all that short. It's angling across towards off stump, and it stops on the batsman a little. Ends up playing a nothing flick at it, and popping the simplest of catches to square leg. 168/6

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Abu Jayed18.529434.997313100
4.6 to TWM Latham, gone, what a great sequence of deliveries this is. Again some seam away from the left-hander, but this time he pitches it full and outside off stump, enticing the drive away from the body. Latham obliges, and sends a thin edge to Liton Das behind the stumps. The length was just perfect, because it was full without being a half-volley, and there was just enough of distance between where the ball pitched and where it met Latham's edge for it to move that small, lethal amount. 5/1
8.3 to JA Raval, spoons it, and Jayed has sent back both openers! Full outside off, looked like a driving length, but it's stopped on the batsman and left him ever so slightly, and he's hit it uppishly and straight to the man at cover. 8/2
84.5 to BJ Watling, another wicket, and New Zealand have declared. Soumya Sarkar is at fly slip, some 40 yards from the bat, and Watling chases after a wide length ball and slices it pretty much straight to him, a little to his right. 432/6
Ebadot Hossain1628405.255911110
Mustafizur Rahman1427415.28539021
83.1 to LRPL Taylor, gone, Mustafizur gets a wicket. Back of a length, slanting away into a fifth-stump line. Clears his front leg and slogs across the line, and sends a top-edge to Liton behind the stumps. 421/5
Soumya Sarkar603505.83235100
Taijul Islam2109924.71695200
39.3 to KS Williamson, and gone! Ends up chipping this fuller delivery back towards the bowler who takes an easy catch. Looked like he was looking to work it towards long-on but the ball held up a little. No hundred for Williamson. 180/3
79.4 to HM Nicholls, bowled him. Looks to make room again and this time Taijul fires it flat at off stump. Nicholls has to reach out a long way to cut, and he fails to connect. 396/4

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Trent Boult1655243.25787100
0.2 to Tamim Iqbal, and bowled'im! Length ball around middle and off, looking to shape away but it nips back after landing, sneaks in through the bat and pad to hit the top of the leg stump. 4/1
6.3 to Mominul Haque, gone, this is brilliant bowling from Boult. Back of a length, angling into middle stump, and Mominul has to play at this. Nothing much he's done wrong, to be honest. It's swung away wickedly, squared him up with extra bounce, and he sends a thick edge to third slip where Southee takes it at waist height. 20/2
32.1 to Soumya Sarkar, and he gets his man - he's bowled a few like this today. Back of a length, hits a tight line close to off stump and gets it to straighten with extra bounce. Sarkar isn't behind the line to defend this, his feet are off the ground, and he gets a thick edge that Ross Taylor holds onto at first slip, catching it in front of his chest and falling backwards. 112/4
54.3 to Mustafizur Rahman, and the middle stump is out of the ground. Fuller on the stumps, backs away and looks to smash down the ground, misses and the stumps are in a disarray. 203/8
Tim Southee1215704.75537110
Matt Henry934014.44428010
14.2 to Shadman Islam, short ball has done the trick. Bouncer, near shoulder height, Shadman goes for the pull, the ball brushes the glove and Watling does the rest. 55/3
Colin de Grandhomme501102.20251010
Neil Wagner1444553.21698100
43.2 to Mohammad Mithun, and the short plan has eventually worked. Short of length near the rib cage, Mithun pivots to pull it behind square but ends up hitting it to Southee's left at backward square leg who take a nice tumbling catch. 152/5
45.4 to Litton Das, short one snares another Bangladesh batsman. Liton Das this time. Goes for the pull but fails to keep it down again, and this time it carries to Boult at fine leg. 158/6
47.4 to Taijul Islam, Wagner has his third. Short of length around off, Taijul hops and fends at it, the ball hits him on the glove and goes towards silly point, Latham takes a comfortable catch. 170/7
55.4 to Mahmudullah, short again and Mahmudullah goes for the pull, gets a top edge towards fine leg, Boult moves to his right, settles under and takes a good catch near the boundary. 209/9
55.6 to Ebadot Hossain, that's a five-wicket haul for Wagner. And the series for New Zealand which means they stay at No. 2 in the ICC rankings irrespective of the what happens in the third Test. Coming back to the delivery, it was full and straight, Ebadat backs away but fails to put bat on the ball and the ball clatters into the middle and leg stump. 209/10
