Unstoppable Tom Latham picks Century against Bangladesh!

Tom Latham


CRICDOT DESK : New Zealand captain Tom Latham scored an impeccable century against Bangladesh in the second Test. He has been batting in ODI style since the first session. His 133-ball century was arranged in 15 boundaries.

Latham survived the first Test with two reviews in the ninth over by the devastating bowler Ibadat. After two reviews went in favor of New Zealand, Bangladesh camp became frustrated.

The New Zealand captain survived the review against the umpire’s decision. After two balls, umpire Wayne Knights again gave LBW to Latham who failed to match the bat-ball. Again, the review goes in Latham’s favor.

The first time the ball of worship would miss the leg stamp, the next one would go over the stamp.

From then on, the star batsman took the team to a cohesive position by batting.

Bangladesh’s previous record in Christchurch is not good. Bangladesh has so far lost only one Test in this field. Bangladesh was scheduled to play a Test match there in 2019, but the match was canceled due to an attack on a mosque at that time.

Bangladesh has not won any of the three ODIs played at this venue. In the last ODI match played in March 2021, Tamimra came very close but lost.
