We are set to begin! The New Zealand players take the field. Followed by Shadman Islam and Mahmudul Hasan Joy who walk out to bat for Bangladesh. Tim Southee to start with the ball.
... Second innings ...
Not what New Zealand envisioned for themselves. Their plan would’ve been to get 400 runs on the board but credit to Bangladesh spinners who spun a web around the batters and restricted the Kiwis to 328 runs. Mehidy Hasan led the bowling attack for the visitors and he picked up 3 wickets. Mominul Haque took the final wicket to end things for the Kiwis. Henry Nicholls could not get much support from the other end, he fought a lone battle and if not for him New Zealand would've never crossed the 300-run mark.
