TOTAL84.3 Ov (RR: 3.42, 387 Mins)289
Fall of wickets: 1-7 (Tamim Iqbal, 3.2 ov), 2-38 (Mahmudullah, 10.2 ov), 3-165 (Soumya Sarkar, 35.5 ov), 4-177 (Sabbir Rahman, 37.5 ov), 5-179 (Shakib Al Hasan, 38.3 ov), 6-232 (Najmul Hossain Shanto, 58.1 ov), 7-248 (Mehidy Hasan Miraz, 61.1 ov), 8-257 (Taskin Ahmed, 66.3 ov), 9-273 (Nurul Hasan, 77.3 ov), 10-289 (Kamrul Islam, 84.3 ov)
10.2 to Mahmudullah, after beating the inside edge so many times, this one was coming. Finally finds the inside edge. Fuller ball, coming back in late, Mahmudullah pays the price for leaving a big gap between bat and pad as he drives and the healthy edge is snaffled by the wicketkeeper. 38/2
35.5 to Soumya Sarkar, a drive on the up is held at short cover. Boult finally has reward after getting the ball to do a lot on a flat deck. This one stops on the pitch and seams away late from the fuller length. Sarkar is forward and does not control the push, uppishly sends it in the direction of short cover where de Grandhomme dives forward to snaffle it. And Sarkar's rather chancy innings has come to an end. 165/3
37.5 to Sabbir Rahman, squared up by a short ball. It's well-directed, bang on the stumps and he is forced to play at it. Jumps up to try and ride the bounce but is in an awkward position and fails to keep it down as he gets a glove to slip. 177/4
77.3 to Nurul Hasan, New Zealand's persistence with the short ball finally gets them a breakthrough. Tries to get his head out of the way and pull it away, not in great balance as a result and gloves it to the wicketkeeper who goes up straight away and the umpire raises his finger. No fifty on debut for Nurul. 273/9
3.2 to Tamim Iqbal, short of a length down the leg side, gets himself into a tangle as he tries to tuck it behind square and gets a glove on it as the ball carries to the wicketkeeper and New Zealand have their first strike of the morning. 7/1
38.3 to Shakib Al Hasan, some noise there as Shakib tries to flick it and the ball goes to the wicketkeeper. There was a definite noise and the umpire Paul Reiffel is unmoved. They think of going upstairs but Shakib is walking off, so they do not have to ask for the review. That was back of a length and sliding down leg. No real reason to be playing at that. It was so much a one-day shot to be playing and he pays the price. Bangladesh sliding dramatically here. 179/5
58.1 to Najmul Hossain Shanto, a loose shot brings about his downfall. It was short and rising on him, coming into him also so he is a bit hurried and does not quite react well to it. Tries to open his bat face and guide it. Fails to keep it down and sends it straight into the hands of short backward point. 232/6
66.3 to Taskin Ahmed, gets the reward for persisting with the short ball. They sensed that Taskin was struggling to deal with the bounce and this one is again banged in and he tries to drop it into the on side. But the ball balloons off the shoulder of the bat to Williamson at third slip who takes a good diving catch. 257/8
84.3 to Kamrul Islam Rabbi, rapped on the pads and given out by umpire Paul Reiffel. That was a superb ball, angling in on a fuller length and straightening late to beat the inside edge to ping him on the pad. Bangladesh opt for a review and replays confirm that there was no edge involved and the ball would have hit middle and off. 289/10
61.1 to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, error in judgement from the batsman. It was a short of a length ball that was angling across. Mehedi expects it to shape away outside off and lifts his bat. But the ball, to his horror, straightens and takes out off stump. Mehedi cannot believe his luck. 248/7

TOTAL92.4 Ov (RR: 3.82, 438 Mins)354
Fall of wickets: 1-45 (Jeet Raval, 14.2 ov), 2-47 (Kane Williamson, 14.4 ov), 3-153 (Tom Latham, 38.4 ov), 4-177 (Ross Taylor, 47.3 ov), 5-252 (Mitchell Santner, 66.4 ov), 6-256 (BJ Watling, 68.3 ov), 7-256 (Colin de Grandhomme, 68.6 ov), 8-286 (Tim Southee, 76.2 ov), 9-343 (Henry Nicholls, 89.5 ov), 10-354 (Neil Wagner, 92.4 ov)
38.4 to TWM Latham, gone! Short, it's there for the cut, you'd think, but maybe not quite as much width as he'd like. Is forced to hit it with an angled bat rather than a fully horizontal bat, and only manages a top-edge through to Nurul. 153/3
47.3 to LRPL Taylor, flights it generously and Taylor clips it uppishly to midwicket. Soft signal is out but the umpires go upstairs to check if it has bounced into the turf before going to the fielder. Seems like this is not a bump ball and the TV umpire takes his time and uses three angles before ruling the batsman out. The flight was good, did not dip but Taylor was early into the shot and had to reach out for it. 177/4
89.5 to HM Nicholls, oh, dear, chops this floated up delivery on to the stumps and Nicholls has to walk back two short of a maiden ton. Came charging down the track and tries to drill it through the off side. But he ends up getting too close to the ball and yorks himself. Gets a healthy inside edge and drags it back onto the stumps. 343/9
14.2 to JA Raval, drags it on and Raval is on his way. Short ball, tries to pull it away and drags it back on to the stumps. Not much room to pull this away really though it was short and that means he cannot find the middle of the bat. So the bowling change has worked. Bangladesh have their first breakthrough of the morning and drinks are on the field. 45/1
14.4 to KS Williamson, what a delivery to get the New Zealand captain! That was an unplayable ball. Full, pitched right up and gets it to prodigiously move away and it takes the outside edge of Williamson at around the sixth-stump channel which is taken by the wicketkeeper. Double blow for New Zealand. And that is also the first Test dismissal for Nurul Hasan. 47/2
66.4 to MJ Santner, Santner has reviewed an lbw decision but that was plub. Unlikely this is going to work in his favour. Tossed up and spinning in to the left-hander from the good length region. Santner is on the backfoot to a delivery he should have probably been playing forward to. Gets rapped on the back pad as he shifts across and ends up exposing the stumps. Does not spin as much as he anticipates and he does not make contact as he tries to work it through the on side. Ball-tracking is not available and the third umpire asks Paul Reiffel to stay with his on-field call. 252/5
68.3 to BJ Watling, bowled 'im! Watling goes for the cut but this doesn't turn. There's a bit of width on it but not too much, and his bat comes down at an angle and bottom-edges into the stumps. Shakib hasn't bowled all that much today, but sudden;y he's taken two in two overs. 256/6
68.6 to C de Grandhomme, three in two overs! Shakib is all over New Zealand here, and again it's that non-turning ball slanted in with that clever low arm. Loose drive from de Grandhomme, looking to hit through the covers, reaching out without getting a proper stride forward, ends up leaving a big gap for the ball to sneak through. 256/7
76.2 to TG Southee, tossed up outside off, goes for the drive and chips it straight to short extra cover. Mehedi Hasan makes up for the earlier lapse by taking it clean this time and Bangladesh have their first breakthrough of the morning. 286/8

TOTAL52.5 Ov (RR: 3.27, 239 Mins)173
Fall of wickets: 1-17 (Tamim Iqbal, 5.4 ov), 2-58 (Soumya Sarkar, 19.4 ov), 3-73 (Shakib Al Hasan, 22.3 ov), 4-92 (Mahmudullah, 32.3 ov), 5-100 (Sabbir Rahman, 36.2 ov), 6-100 (Nurul Hasan, 36.4 ov), 7-106 (Najmul Hossain Shanto, 39.4 ov), 8-115 (Mehidy Hasan Miraz, 43.5 ov), 9-166 (Taskin Ahmed, 51.5 ov), 10-173 (Rubel Hossain, 52.5 ov)
39.4 to Najmul Hossain Shanto, that's a brilliant yorker from Boult. And he gets reverse swing as well. Nazmul jams the bat down but cannot make contact with the ball as it tails back in late and takes out off and middle stumps. Not much that you can do there. A wicket off a good ball for a change. 106/7
43.5 to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, short ball does the trick again. Good variation in length from Boult. Cleverly follows up the yorker with a short ball and Mehedi gets a glove as he tries to keep it down. Only that he can't keep it down and sends it straight into the hands of short leg who is waiting with his hands out. That's catching practice. 115/8
51.5 to Taskin Ahmed, and the yorker does the trick. Goes through the defence. Gets it to tail in which means the ball beats the inside edge and crashes into the stumps. Ends a frustrating stand but how many valuable runs have these two added? That partnership was 51 and the lead is now 101. Another 50-60 for the last wicket could make this game interesting again. 166/9
5.4 to Tamim Iqbal, short ball does the trick. Goes hard on the pull shot. There was a man there in deep square leg just for that and he sends it straight into his hands. Does not keep it along the ground and it is a fairly straightforward catch for Santner who has to move in and get down forward to take that. 17/1
22.3 to Shakib Al Hasan, short ball outside off, and it's a loose shot for Shakib. 200 Test wickets for Tim Southee. It's not that wide also and Shakib steers it, making no attempt to keep it down. Does not find the gap and hits it straight into the hands of de Grandhomme at backward point. 73/3
52.5 to Rubel Hossain, brilliant catch from BJ Watling. He was backtracking and judges it to perfection as the ball stays in the air and goes back some distance after Rubel gets a top-edge on the pull shot. 173/10
19.4 to Soumya Sarkar, offers up some width outside off and tempts the batsman to go after it. Sarkar flashes at it and guides it straight into the hands of Jeet Rava at gully. Raval dives to his left to snaffle it. 58/2
32.3 to Mahmudullah, this had to happen at some point. Goes for another drive away from the body. It moves away late from a fullish length and does not come on to him too well either. Mahmudullah is forced to reach out for it and he tries to force it, ends up dragging it on to the stumps. Angrily swipes at the stumps as he sees the bails getting dislodged but the damage has been done. Bangladesh in serious trouble here. They are effectively 27 for 4. 92/4
36.2 to Sabbir Rahman, edged and the keeper snaffles it. Wagner snuffs him out with a well-directed short ball. bangs it in on middle-stump line and the ball gets big on the batsman. He jumps up, awkwardly looking to ride the bounce. Does not manage to keep it down as he tries to fend it off. Gets a healthy outside edge that is taken by the wicketkeeper. 100/5
36.4 to Nurul Hasan, Wagner strikes second ball after the break. Strangles him down the leg side with a short ball and Nurul initially thinks of flicking it but changes his mind late and tries to keep the bat inside the line. But it's too late and he gets just a feather as the ball goes to the wicketkeeper. Appeal for caught behind and Nigel Llong needs little time to raise his finger. 100/6

12.3 to JA Raval, tries to leave it by lifting his bat but is late in doing so and inadvertently chops it on. Length ball and there is not much room so the bat makes contact with the ball as he lifts it to let the ball go. Was probably caught in two minds there and ended up making a late decision to leave. 56/1
