New Zealand to send back Bangladesh for batting!



CRICDOT DESK : Many did not even imagine such a start for Bangladesh in reply to New Zealand’s 521 runs in Christchurch Test!

To add 11 runs to the scoreboard, four top-order batsmen. After that the first 5 batsmen went back to the dressing room with only 26 runs.

As a result, they were fearful of being bowled out for the lowest 43 runs in their history.

But wicketkeepers Sohan and Yasir Ali overcame that fear with the help of Rabbi and the team scored a century.

But Sohan-Yasir could not pull the score too far. Bangladesh’s innings was reduced to 128 runs. In other words, the Tigers were able to score half of the runs of Kiwi captain Latham.

Bangladesh is still 395 runs behind. Meanwhile, the umpires have ended the second day. So whether New Zealand will follow Bangladesh, it will be known on the morning of the third day.

Sohan’s second highest run comes today. When he returned to the dressing room with 41 runs, Yasir stood in the rubble. They made a pair of 80 runs.

Yasir saw one wicket after another. First Mirage and then Taskin returned to the toilet.

After playing 33 balls, Mirage was bowled directly by Bolt’s pace. Bolt touched the milestone of the 300th wicket of his Test career.

Meanwhile, Yasir completed the second half century of his career. However, he did not take much. He was dismissed for 55 off 95 balls with six boundaries. Kyle Jamieson’s delivery was caught by Will Young.

After three balls, Shariful became Bolt’s fifth victim. He made only 2 runs from 3 balls.

CRICDOT DESK :Bangladesh’s first Test winning anniversary today!

After Shariful’s dismissal, Bangladesh’s innings was reduced to 128 runs.

Bangladesh is still 395 runs behind. So whether New Zealand will follow Bangladesh, it will be known on the morning of the third day.

Playing with 349 runs yesterday, New Zealand declared 521 runs for 8 wickets.

In reply, the first 4 batsmen of Bangladesh got out in just one hour in the second session. 4 wickets fell for 11 runs.

Mahmudul Hasan Joy could not open the run book Naeem Islam got a chance due to injury. He started with his debut Test call.

Mominul Haque and Liton Das, who batted brilliantly in the first Test, could not pull the team out of the batting disaster.

The Bangladesh captain also called. After playing that ball, Saudi bowled the ball and returned empty handed. Then Bolt returned Liton who scored 6 runs.

Earlier, with 99 runs in the morning, Conway went down to bat on the second day and got a century at the beginning. But he could not go further. Mehdi Hasan was run out by Miraj and stopped for 109 runs. Conway had 12 fours and a six in his 18-ball innings.

After returning to Conway, Ross Taylor teamed up with Latham. Then Ibadat hit the pair.

Taylor, who scored 26 off 39 balls, was caught by Shariful. Henry Nichols then returned with a catch in the hands of wicketkeeper Nurul Hasan.

Shariful shot Daryl Mitchell just before the lunch break. After the break, Tom Latham and Tom Blandell batted in ODI mood. They made a pair of 8 runs before being bowled by Muminul.

Latham caught by Yasir Ali off Muminul Haque. Earlier, he scored 252 runs off 363 balls with 34 fours and 2 sixes. The Kiwi captain played the innings.

The Blackcaps declared the innings after Blandell hit a half-century.
