End of Over No.103 Bngladesh 429/10 Last Over (wicket maiden)

New Zealand win by an innings and 52 runs. A very convincing margin for the home side but they had to work for it today. An excellent stand between Soumya Sarkar and Mahmadullah, who both made impressive hundreds. However, once Boult made the breakthrough with the new ball there wasn’t much more resistance from the lower order – an area Bangladesh really need to work on. They will regret that first innings collapse from 121 for 1 which just didn’t leave them any sort of total to play with on a good batting pitch. New Zealand put them to the sword with their record total of 715.

Player of the Match is Kane Williamson “As a batting unit on that surface we wanted to bat long, was fortunate to help be a part of a number of partnership.” Modest, as ever.

“It feels great to win. We knew it would be big push. The surface wasn’t going to offer a huge amount. We knew Bangladesh had a lot of quality. I thought throughout the whole Test the bowlers were outstanding. No seam movement, a little bit of swing and bounce which we tried to extract with the short ball. It was an outstanding opening partnership, Tom is churning them out and for Jeet to make a hundred was so pleasing. It will be a different assignment in Wellington, we’ll have to adapt and not rest on this performance. I’ve no doubt if the game had gone five days we’d have seen more spin.”

Mahmadullah “The wicket was really good to bat on and we missed our opportunity. That was the most valuable opportunity, if we could have got a good first innings. It’s a learning curve for the bowlers, but they have the courage. We just need to put it in the right areas all the time. They were bowling really good areas but we needed to cope with that but there’s no benefit if you are on a losing side.”

That just about wraps things up for this Test. The second match starts in Wellington on Friday and we’ll be back to bring you coverage of that. For now, from Gnasher, Karthik, Sreshth and Ankur it’s goodbye and thanks for joining us.

102.6 W Southee to Ebadat Hossain edged, given caught behind and that’s the match It’s back of a length, just outside off, there is a sound as it passes the bat. The batsman called the review. Nothing on Hot Spot. What will RTS say? There is a small spike, so this will be upheld. BJ Watling overtakes Adam Parore as the most prolific New Zealand keeper OUT
Ebadat Hossain c †Watling b Southee 0 (5m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00
102.5 0 Southee to Ebadat Hossain full and straight, defended into the covers no run

Steve B: “There must be a spinner in a NZ regional team who wanted to follow in the footsteps of J Bracewell & Vettori. We can’t just have mediums & quicks out there.” Santner (when fully fit), Sodhi, Patel, Somerville

102.4 0 Southee to Ebadat Hossain short outside off, left alone no run
102.3 0 Southee to Ebadat Hossain goes full, at leg stump, kept out as he pushes to mid-on no run

One to go for New Zealand…

102.2 W Southee to Mahmudullah sliced straight to deep point! What a way to go. Short outside off, he didn’t keep it down as he tried to find the gap between point and third man. Ended up being a simple catch for Boult. End of an outstanding innings from the captain. He can be very proud of that effort OUT
Mahmudullah c Boult b Southee 146 (315m 229b 21×4 3×6) SR: 63.75
102.1 0 Southee to Mahmudullah that’s a good short ball, over off stump, sways out of the line no run

Everyone is on the boundary apart from keeper and bowler

End of Over No.102 Bngladesh 429/8 Last Over (1 run)

101.6 0 Boult to Khaled Ahmed very full, actually passed the stumps as a full toss, wide outside off…poor ball to the No. 10 no run
101.5 0 Boult to Khaled Ahmed full at the stumps, he’s getting more in line now, defended to the covers no run

Back over the wicket

101.4 1 Boult to Mahmudullah short outside off, driven out to deep point 1 run
101.3 0 Boult to Mahmudullah nearly gets through with the yorker, a slower ball as well, comes off the toe end no run
101.2 0 Boult to Mahmudullah angled into the pads, turned down to long leg no run
101.1 0 Boult to Mahmudullah round the wicket, full at off stump, defended no run

Rhys : “We already had two spinners. Astle hasn’t contributed anything after 2 years of performances. Kane doesn’t trust him because he isn’t a viable option.” Well, not sure he’s ever had a proper chance to settle and prove himself

End of Over No.101 Bngladesh 428/8 Last Over (1 run)

CJ: “Generally in NZ conditions, there is no need for a spinner in the first innings. In the second innings the new ball is relied on to take the majority of wickets. NZ need a spinner who can make an old ball grip and beat a batsmen by varying his flight and speed – Astle does not appear to be that spinner”

100.6 0 Southee to Khaled Ahmed full and straight, solidly behind the line. Well played no run
100.5 0 Southee to Khaled Ahmed back of a length outside off, left alone…bit of a waste no run
100.4 1 Southee to Mahmudullah short outside off, pulled through the leg side to deep midwicket 1 run
100.3 0 Southee to Mahmudullah width outside off, sliced to third man no run

James: “Gnasher: No more getting up at unearthly hours to cover Asian and Pacific matches. Miller and Gardner always gave you the graveyard shift!” I know! They always gave me those stints…now I just need to watch the Ashes through the night!

100.2 0 Southee to Mahmudullah full, wide outside off, left alone no run
100.1 0 Southee to Mahmudullah length outside off, driven to point no run

Southee continues

End of Over No.100 Bngladesh 427/8 Last Over (3 runs)

99.6 0 Boult to Khaled Ahmed length ball slanting across, just missing off stump after it moves away from the right-hander to beat his hesitant forward prod no run

Over the wicket to Khaled.

99.5 1 Boult to Mahmudullah length ball close to off stump, punches into the cover point region and calls for a quick single. De Grandhomme sprints to his right from point and fires in a throw at the striker’s end, and Khaled – who was slow to take off from the other end – may well have been out had the throw been on target 1 run
99.4 0 Boult to Mahmudullah fuller, a lot wider, left alone no run
99.3 0 Boult to Mahmudullah back of a length, angling into off stump, clipped into the vacant midwicket region, refuses the single no run

Round the wicket now.

99.2 0 Boult to Mahmudullah back of a length, angling away from off stump, left alone no run
99.1 2 Boult to Mahmudullah back of a length on leg stump, worked away to the left of long leg 2 runs

Welcome back, folks. It’s Boult to resume, left-arm over.

End of Over No.99 Bngladesh 424/8 Last Over (4 runs)

No request for an extension to the session so that will be tea. It’s been hard work for New Zealand but they are just two wickets away. It’s been a wonderful innings from Mahmudullah. Can he wipe off the deficit to make New Zealand bat again? Trent Boult has bagged another five-for, his spell with the second new ball broke through the main resistance. I’ll be back in 15 minutes at 4pm for the resumption.

98.6 0 Southee to Khaled Ahmed big appeal for lbw as this spears into the back pad but it’s heading down leg side no run
98.5 0 Southee to Khaled Ahmed gets squared up by a length delivery and the leading edge pops into the off side no run

Rickyg: “I gues NZ need to pick a spinner for the supposed ‘balance’ of the team but must be immensely frustrating for Astle to get 11 overs with a dead ball as a filler before the new ball. Would have been good to see him have a rip with a fresh nut after Southee and Boult.”

98.4 0 Southee to Khaled Ahmed full outside off, leaves it alone no run
98.3 0 Southee to Khaled Ahmed a bouncer, angled down the leg side no run
98.2 4 Southee to Khaled Ahmed length ball, clubbed over midwicket so he’s off the debut pair…that was a proper tailenders mow FOUR
98.1 0 Southee to Khaled Ahmed full into the pads, kicks this away down to long leg…starts off the run but there was no shot offered no run

Tim Southee into the attack
