TOTAL85.1 Ov (RR: 3.63, 378 Mins)310
Fall of wickets: 1-39 (Zakir Hasan, 12.3 ov), 2-92 (Najmul Hossain Shanto, 24.2 ov), 3-180 (Mominul Haque, 52.5 ov), 4-184 (Mahmudul Hasan Joy, 53.3 ov), 5-210 (Mushfiqur Rahim, 60.3 ov), 6-233 (Mehidy Hasan Miraz, 67.5 ov), 7-261 (Shahadat Hossain, 72.6 ov), 8-276 (Nurul Hasan, 78.3 ov), 9-290 (Nayeem Hasan, 81.5 ov), 10-310 (Shoriful Islam, 85.1 ov) • DRS
85.1 to Shoriful Islam, Huge appeal for lbw straightaway! And Southee opts for the review after umpire Ahsan Raza shakes his head. Lands it on a length on middle and angles it in. Shoriful is caught in the crease and misses the flick. Three reds and Bangladesh have been bowled out. Southee is also in the wickets column, finally. 310/10
67.5 to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Unfinished shot has Mehidy balloon the ball to slip this time. Back of length around off, Mehidy looked like he was shaping to pull or leave it. He got caught in two, three, maybe more minds. Not ideal as his upper body was moving about either way, the bat was essentially a wall in front to shield him from being hit. The ball sprung right up off the bat. Unfortunately for him, it went behind, easily in slip's reach. 233/6
81.5 to Nayeem Hasan, Edged and taken! Finally a just reward for Jamieson's efforts. Bowls it full and swings it away, enticing the drive because of his movement in both directions. Nayeem cannot resist reaching out for the drive but only edges it to Latham at second slip. 290/9
12.3 to Zakir Hasan, Ajaz darts one back sharply to hit the top of off. Length ball at 90ks landed around fifth and zipped in. Zakir was on the back foot, he committed to the cut but had absolutely no room to work with or the time to adjust. Ajaz has been finding sharp spin every now and again, his pace has been on the higher side. This time he's rewarded. This was much like Ajaz's ball at 8.5, which was at 83ks. Zakir was in a spot of bother then. This one was quicker and his intent to score worked against him. 39/1
60.3 to Mushfiqur Rahim, Mushfiqur charges down the pitch and drives it down Williamson's throat! Fullish ball at the stumps, Mushfiqur made room as he danced down, got to the pitch and tried to launch it. He scraped it off the bottom of the bat and missed out on the elevation. Williamson was slightly wide and deep at mid-off and took it with a reverse cup in front of his chest. Mushfiqur looks up in disappointment, Ajaz all smiles.. 210/5
53.3 to Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Is that a clean catch? Sodhi has been having Mahmudul in a spot of bother in this spell, even though he has been going for runs. Lands this full and just outside off. Tosses it up, entices the forward defensive push from Mahmudul. Unlike the earlier times when he played at these with soft hands, he pushes at it with hard hands. The ball goes of the outside edge and Mitchell does well to have his hands under the ball as he dives to his right. The TV ump is satisfied and Mahmudul is giving his marching orders. No ton, no joy for Joy. 184/4
24.2 to Najmul Hossain Shanto, End of Shanto's enterprising stay - lives by the sword and dies by it. A rank full toss of all deliveries to get out to. Phillips tosses it up but doesn't land the ball. Shanto once again charges down to deposit it out of the ground. But he only manages a top edge that stays in the air for an eternity. Williamson gets to his left from deep mid-on, stays put to judge it perfectly and takes it with a tumble. Phillips cannot believe that delivery has gotten him his maiden Test wicket and has his hands on his head. A wicket for New Zealand against the run of play. 92/2
52.5 to Mominul Haque, Test match wicket No. 2 for Phillips. The cut shot cuts Mominul's stay short. Once again he goes back in the crease to play the cut. But the ball is not short enough for that. Phillips pushes it through and it perhaps skids on. Mominul only gets a thick inside edge that Blundell excellently snaps up. 180/3
72.6 to Shahadat Hossain, PHILLIPS STRIKES! Yep, in capital letters. An innocuous delivery yet again, but smartly bowled. Goes wide of the crease and bowls it slow and in line of the stumps. Shahadat skips down and looks to wrist it away but chips it straight to short midwicket. Phillips roars, Bangladesh silenced. 261/7
78.3 to Nurul Hasan, Strangled down leg, wicket no. 4 for Phillips! My word. Bowls it from wide of the crease again, quicker, too. Lands it on a length around middle and spins back in, Nurul goes back to work it away but only gets a faint tickle. Another fine catch down leg by Blundell moving swiftly to his left. Bangladesh's spectacular slide continues. 276/8

TOTAL101.5 Ov (RR: 3.11, 433 Mins)317
Fall of wickets: 1-36 (Tom Latham, 12.5 ov), 2-44 (Devon Conway, 15.3 ov), 3-98 (Henry Nicholls, 31.1 ov), 4-164 (Daryl Mitchell, 47.1 ov), 5-175 (Tom Blundell, 56.1 ov), 6-253 (Glenn Phillips, 74.6 ov), 7-262 (Kane Williamson, 80.5 ov), 8-264 (Ish Sodhi, 82.5 ov), 9-316 (Kyle Jamieson, 101.1 ov), 10-317 (Tim Southee, 101.5 ov) • DRS
31.1 to HM Nicholls, Shoriful strikes and the change of bowling works. Begins with a length ball outside off, at 133kph. Harmless delivery at best. But it was enough to draw Nicholls - pacing seam for the first time in the innings - forward with a hard-handed push. This is where the pitch comes into play. The ball rears up from the length and Nicholls only feathers it behind. An important breakthrough given how Nicholls and Williamson tend to out-bat the opposition. 98/3
15.3 to DP Conway, Has he held on to that? If so, it's a brilliant catch! And Mehidy's persistence pays off. It's full around off, drawing Conway into the forward defence. It goes straight and takes the inside edge onto his pad, popping up to Shahadat's right at silly point. Shahadat dives low and takes a one-handed peach to end Conway's vigil. 44/2
12.5 to TWM Latham, Goes for another sweep and this time he's given away a simple catch to fine leg! Goes across the stumps to try and fetch this from outside off with the sweep, but ends up top-edging it. Nayeem grabs it, having to move back just a bit, and Bangladesh have their first breakthrough courtesy their first bowling change. 36/1
47.1 to DJ Mitchell, And Taijul gets the breakthrough! Mitchell was skipping out, Taijul draws him forward and shortens the length. The ball spins away sharply and Mitchell had no chance as Nurul Hasan takes the bails off. Mitchell falls for 41, and another partnership is cut short by Bangladesh. 164/4
80.5 to KS Williamson, The second new ball works wonders for Bangladesh! Taijul Islam breaks through Kane Williamson's stoic, stubborn defence and castles him. This one goes straight as Williamson presses forward in defence and zip through between bat and pad. Williamson walks off shaking his head, but he has played a gem here.. 262/7
82.5 to IS Sodhi, Is that a catch at short leg?! Bangladesh think so. The ball popped up to the fielder's front and he took it low. Was there any bat? And did he take the catch cleanly? The third umpire is having a check. It was a length ball spinning in and deflected off the keeper's pads to the fielder. But did Sodhi get an inside edge? UltraEdge confirms the spike! And the catch is a clean one so Sodhi has to go and Taijul has his fourth!. 264/8
56.1 to TA Blundell, What an unfortunate dismissal for Blundell! Nayeem gets Blundell like Phillips got Nurul. Flatter and spinning down leg, quicker and lands on a length around off. Blundell goes back to flick but only feathers an edge behind. Nurul does well to grab it down leg.. 175/5
74.6 to GD Phillips, Mominul breaks through! Phillips edges one to slip! Mominul Haque gets a crucial wicket here! Shanto takes a good catch at slip as well! It's similar to the previous delivery, drawing GP forward. This time he gets a thick edge and the Bangladesh skipper is quick to react, taking a low catch to his left. 253/6
101.1 to KA Jamieson, Wicket off the first ball after the break! Mominul traps Jamieson lbw. But he reviews. Looks plumb though. Full ball on the off stump, the batter looks to defend and misses. UltraEdge confirms there is not bat involved.Three reds light up! Partnership is broken. Much needed for the hosts. 316/9
101.5 to TG Southee, Cleaned up! Mominul takes just five balls after the break to bowl New Zealand out for 317. It's a fuller ball on off and middle stump, Southee looks to hit this one across and misses and the ball hits the middle stump. Captain walks back after a 62-ball 35.. 317/10

69.2 to Najmul Hossain Shanto, Shanto's strangled down leg for 105! Bonus for Southee who gets the opposition skipper. Like his first ball of the day, he missed the line, too straight this time. Length on the shorter side too, Shanto tried to glance it off his hips but feathered it to Blundell, who skipped to his right and took a dolly. Shanto unable to build on his overnight score. Replays show it hit the top of the sticker, Williamson shakes hands with Shanto as he walks back. 214/4
12.1 to Zakir Hasan, Ajaz gets Zakir again in the Test! He walks back without opting to review. Looked quite plumb. He fires it full and fast outside off, spins back in sharply. Zakir goes back to flick it away but is beaten on the inside edge and is struck low on the front pad. The only thing that could have saved him - because of the spin - is had he played a bit forward. But he was right back in the crease and the ball did not have much to travel. Huge wicket, because he was the one who looked to be at ease and scoring for Bangladesh. Three reds on ball-tracker. 23/1
84.4 to Mushfiqur Rahim, Mushfiqur trapped in front! Nothing saving him this time, I think, even though he has opted for the review. Ajaz has had enough of the ball beating the outside edge or taking the edge but catching not being taken. He slips in an arm ball on a fuller-than-good length on off and middle. Mushfiqur once again lunges forward to defend but is clearly beaten on the inside and struck in line. 278/6
96.6 to Taijul Islam, Clothes it to mid-on. Ajaz invited the big shot with a loopy 80ks full ball that was flighted outside off, Taijul leant across and tried to smash it over the mid-off but toed it to the right of Nicholls, who slid across and took it. Well enticed by Ajaz.. 312/9
100.4 to Shoriful Islam, Shoriful charges, slashes and misses. Blundell whips off the bails. Third umpire checks the stumping. The ball was on a fullish length, well outside off. Shoriful made a bit of room too and tried to go over extra, he had a full bat swing and tried to jam the bat back in. Blundell had to push the ball off his right hand after trying to take it with both hands. Shoriful got the bat on the crease but couldn't get it behind before the bails were dislodged. Mehidy left stranded but the hosts do a good job with bat.. 338/10
91.3 to Nurul Hasan, Phillips bowls, Phillips catches and Nurul is out of here. Tosses it up again just outside off, Nurul skips down the track early to go big. Does not get it off the meat of the blade and mishits it straight back to the bowler, who crouches low and pouches that. Phillips finally on the board. 291/7
75.4 to Shahadat Hossain, Lbw appeal given right away! Shahadat looks to be asking Mushfiqur if it was going down leg, seems like no is the answer. No review, and Sodhi breaks a quick-fire 34-run stand. Loopy length ball at 80ks, looked like a legbreak, looped up and landed on leg and middle, spun away to straighten. Shahadat tried to block it straight off the front foot and was hit in front of middle. 248/5
95.3 to Nayeem Hasan, Extra bounce has Nayeem pop it off the glove to short leg. Googly at 88ks was a tad short, spun back in sharply. Nayeem was backing away leg side, shaped for the cut but ended up fending it without conviction, he had absolutely no room to work with. The gloves hit his body as the ball ballooned away. Dolly for Latham. 311/8

0.6 to TWM Latham, Edged to the keeper! Shoriful lands it on the perfect length and gets rewarded. 128.9ks, gets it on fourth stump, Latham pushed his body forward to try and cover the line, but the ball shaped away. Latham, who tried to block it relatively close to the body, ended up feathering it. Great catch from Nurul diving low to the left. Shoriful wheels away in celebration.. 0/1
12.4 to HM Nicholls, Mehidy comes back and strikes. Tossed up outside off, lands around the good length region, spinning away just a touch. Nicholls did not look comfortable against spin and goes for the release shot - the sweep. Only gets a top edge over the on side. Nayeem runs to his right from short fine leg, settles under it and ends Nicholls' misery. New Zealand disintegrating quickly. 30/3
9.6 to KS Williamson, Taijul has the big fish in Williamson! Taijul is pumped up, Bangladesh are pumped and so is the sparse crowd. Hugeeeee call from Williamson to opt for the review, does so on the last second. Tossed up ball around off and middle, full enough to draw him forward in defence again. He gets beaten on the inside edge to get hit low on the front pad. Williamson quite knew he was dead duck. Began his walk back as soon as he saw the first replay on the big screen. 19/2
23.5 to DP Conway, Gottim, bat-pad! There is no stopping Taijul as he runs away with childlike energy. It was on a probing good length, spinning in from outside off at 81ks, Conway leant across and tried to block it towards mid-off. He was outside the crease and on the front foot but feathered it from close to the sticker onto the pad. It popped straight to Shahadat and NZ now four down!. 46/4
27.4 to TA Blundell, Huge appeal for caught behind, ump takes a couple of seconds before raising his finger! Big turn, big bounce, Blundell can't do much there, ends up feathering it to the keeper. Stock ball on a length landed in line with off stump, 83ks, ragged away sharply. Blundell was on the back foot, he slid his front foot leg side and started to close the bat-face. His bottom hand came off as he went to adjust to the extra spin and bounce but couldn't stop himself from poking at it.. 60/5
43.3 to KA Jamieson, Plumb in front! Taijul knows it and the appeal is a mere formality. Jamieson, though, opts to review. Quicker through the air, on a fullish length on middle and leg. He looks to prod forward and defend but gets beaten on the inside edge and is hit on the front pad. Is the angle taking it down leg? Three reds and Jamieson walks back with a review. Second four-for in the game for Taijul. 102/7
67.1 to TG Southee, Taijul has his first five-for against New Zealand from a slow short one. It was on leg stump, Southee stepped leg side and tried to muscle the pull. But he couldn't make enough room. The around-the-wicket angle worked for Taijul. 178/9
71.1 to IS Sodhi, Taijul finishes with a six-for, takes Bangladesh to their first Test win against New Zealand at home! Length ball at 74ks landed outside leg and spun away sharply, went towards off. Sodhi tried to block it towards mid-off but the ball popped off the shoulder of the bat to Zakir at silly mid-off. Taijul walks back a couple of steps before roaring in delight.. 181/10
34.5 to GD Phillips, Phillips goes back and across and misses the tuck. Gets hit high on the front pad. Nayeem likes it, asks Shanto to opt for the review - Bangladesh's last one. Tossed up outside off, it lands on a length and spins back in to strike him in front of off. Will height save Phillips? No it does not. Three reds on the Hawk-Eye and New Zealand lose their sixth.. 81/6
58.4 to DJ Mitchell, Mitchell's resistance is over as he sweeps it to backward square! Taijul runs to the left and takes it on the move. Nayeem is chuffed, Mitchell is pensive while on one knee as in resignation. Ball was on a length and bounced a bit too much for Mitchell's liking. He committed to the sweep and went through with it, it went up off a top edge. Taijul timed his lunge well, took it and slid his trousers back up. Should be the game in the bag now for the hosts.. 132/8
