Bangladesh took the lead against New Zealand

Despite losing two wickets on the morning of the third day, the Tigers turned around with the bat of captain Mominul Haque and Liton Das. Meanwhile, Bangladesh has taken the lead against the Kiwis. Mominul and Liton’s pair of fifty in the collection of Bangladesh now 329 runs for 4 wickets. They are 1 run ahead of New Zealand.

Earlier, at the beginning of the third day, young batsman Mahmudul Hasan returned to the dressing room with a personal score of 7 runs and Mushi started batting with captain Muminul Haque. He made a good start. However, Mushfiqur returned with just 12 runs after being bowled by Trent Bolt.

Then Neil Wagner, who had taken the previous two wickets, got the wicket again. It is as if this left-arm fast bowler has gritted his teeth in the hope of Bangladesh. After Sadman and Shantar, his victim is Mahmudul Hasan Joy, the most reliable place of red-green. The young Turkish returned to the dressing room with a catch in the hands of Henry Nichols after scoring an impeccable 6 runs off 226 balls.

After remaining unbeaten on 60 the previous day, Joy returned to the pavilion with only 7 runs on the third day. After scoring a half-century in the second Test of his career, the young Tiger batsman was heading towards that first and adorable century. But Wagner did not let that happen. His bouncer finally ended the winning innings.

Team Tigers are relieved at the end of the second day as before. After the Kiwis were bowled out for 328 on Sunday (January 2), the visitors did well with the bat.

Bangladesh finished the second day with 175 runs for the loss of 2 wickets. Mahmudul Hasan Joy was unbeaten on 70 and captain Muminul Haque on 6. Earlier, Sadman Islam made a great start with the bat at Bay Oval. Mahmudul Hasan Joy accompanied him well. They were progressing well after watching and playing. However, Sadman fell victim to Wagner before the lunch break. He made 22 runs before returning to the dressing room.

Even after Sadman’s return, another opening batsman Mahmudul Hasan and three-man Nazmul Hossain were leading Shant Bangladesh. However, Wagner returned Nazmul for 64 runs.

Earlier, the Kiwis started the second day with 256 runs for 5 wickets. However, the Blackcaps lost wickets at regular intervals due to the bowling prowess of Miraj-Shariful. On the second day, after adding only 60 runs, the hosts lost 5 wickets and stopped at 326 runs. Miraj and Shariful both took 3 wickets each.
