Kiwi pacer Trent Bolt touched the 300-wicket milestone in Test cricket. Bolt completed 300 wickets in the Test by bowling Mehdi Hasan. Bolt’s teammate Saudi is already in the 300-wicket club. At the time of writing, Bangladesh had scored 128 runs for 7 wickets. Bangladesh is getting closer to follow-on. Yasir and Shariful are batting. Yasir has completed half a century
Meanwhile, Bangladesh lost 5 wickets in the first innings of the batting disaster. Sohan and Yasir tried to turn around. However, Sohan was lbw with the Saudi ball for 41 runs.
Earlier, the batting line-up of Bangladesh was shattered by the bowling cannon of Saudi and Bolt at Hagley Oval. In the beginning, Bangladesh lost 5 batsmen for only 26 runs and fell under great pressure. Saudi and Bolt both took three wickets each.
Hagley Oval, meanwhile, did well at the start of the second day, but the Kiwi batsmen have already done their job. The Kiwis declared their innings at 521 for 7, relying on Tom Latham’s 252 and Conway’s 109. Shariful and Ebadat Hossain took two wickets each for Bangladesh.
Tom Blandell, meanwhile, continued to bat at breakneck speed after returning captain Tom Latham to the pavilion. He remained unbeaten on 58 off 60 balls in 6 overs. Meanwhile, before returning the Kiwi captain to the pavilion, New Zealand captain Latham scored 252 runs. He scored the first 25 runs of his career with the help of 2 sixes and 34 fours.
Meanwhile, after a disappointing first day, Bangladesh turned around on Monday (January 10) at Hagley Oval in Christchurch. The first session of the second day went to the pocket of Bangladesh. After just one wicket of the previous day, the Bangladeshi bowlers took five wickets on this day.
However, on the second day, New Zealand’s batting order collapsed, but Bangladesh did not gain much. Tom Latham has the responsibility of leading in the absence of Ken Williamson. Whether under that pressure or not, in the first Test, the bat did not shine. However, in the second test, he became a complete ‘run machine’. He completed a century on the first day of the second Test at Hagley Oval in Christchurch and then scored a double century on the second day.
This is only the fifth time that an opening batsman has scored a double century in the first innings on New Zealand soil.
Muminul Bahini won the toss and elected to field in the second and final Test at Hagley Oval in Christchurch on Sunday (January 9). On the other hand, for New Zealand, the story is a return. After playing badly in the first match, they turned around in the second match.
