Bangladesh tour of New Zealand, 2nd Test

NZ trail BD by 29 runs after day 2

New Zealand were 260 for 7 trailing Bangladesh by 29 runs in their first innings when play was abandoned for the day due to rain in the second Test at Hagley Oval, Christchurch today.

Earlier, Bangladesh and New Zealand stepped onto the Hagley Oval for the start of the second day.

New Zealand’s openers were out in the middle as the hosts began their reply to Bangladesh 289 on the first day.

Pacer Tim Southee took a five-wicket haul on day one to restrict Bangladesh’s total after they had gotten a decent platform to build on from Shakib Al Hasan and Soumya Sarkar.

Soumya and Shakib stitched together a 127-run third-wicket stand to repair the innings after Bangladesh lost Tamim Iqbal and Mahmudullah Riyad and were looking shaky.

Soumya returned to form with a brilliant 86, while Shakib added 59.

Following the dismissal of those two, rookies Nurul Hasan and Nazmul Hossain batted patiently, with the former adding 47. Another special performance came from Kamrul Islam Rabbi, who fended off 63 deliveries and scored two.

The Tigers will be hoping to come back roaring on day two, watch all the action on Channel 9’s official YouTube stream here.
