Bangladesh’s record in New Zealand

Before the start of the Test series against New Zealand, Bangladesh’s staunch supporters may not have expected so much. Muminul Bahini goes on tour to New Zealand after a devastating World Cup defeat against Pakistan at home.

Bangladesh in the driver’s seat at the end of the fourth day of the test at Mount Manganui. Where powerful superpowers like England, Pakistan and India are not found. In that opposite condition, the red-green forces have shaken the foundation of the Test world champions. On Wednesday (December 5), the last day of the four-day ongoing Test, Tiger’s victory is assured if they can maintain their continuity.

Meanwhile, Bangladesh has set many records in the first Test against New Zealand at the beginning of the new year. Exactly from the cricket website Cricketinfo.

Bangladesh batted 16.2 overs in the first innings of the ongoing Test. Which is the second highest in their Test history. The Tigers have played more than one over only once before. It was 198 overs against Sri Lanka in 2013. Apart from this, Bangladesh has batted more than 150 overs for the second time only outside Asia. Bangladesh batted 152 overs against New Zealand in Wellington in 2016.

A decade ago, the last visiting team in New Zealand batted more than 16.2 overs. Pakistan batted 193.2 overs against the Kiwis in that match in Napier.

Bangladesh’s lead was also recorded in the first innings. After 2016, New Zealand has never lagged behind in the first innings at home. The last time England took a 101-run lead in Hamilton was in 2019. Meanwhile, Bangladesh had managed to take a lead of more than 130 runs on foreign soil once before.

Bangladesh’s first eight batsmen played more than 50 balls in the first innings against the hosts. This is the first time that the first eight batsmen of Bangladesh have played more than 50 balls in Test cricket.

Meanwhile, for the third time in the last five years, the Tigers have scored more than 400 runs on New Zealand soil. The rest of the Test playing teams have achieved this feat only once.

Bangladesh scored 456 runs in the first innings against New Zealand. Which is the highest collection of Bangladesh in Test cricket without any century.

The New Zealand bowlers had to bowl 16.2 overs in the first innings. No pacer has ever bowled more than this to take 10 wickets in 2000. It is also the fastest number of pacers in an innings since 2006.
