HITS of the Day

  • Massive total put NZ on top against Bangladesh
Bangladesh 87 for 1 (Tamim 56*) trail New Zealand 553 for 7 dec. (Guptill 189, McCullum 185, Rubel 5 for 166) by 466 runs

A terrific 339-run sixth-wicket stand between Martin Guptill and Brendon McCullum put the hosts firmly in the driver's seat on the second day of the one-off Test at Seddon Park.

Both batsmen came agonisingly close to maiden double-centuries, before falling to an inspired Rubel Hossain spell soon after drinks in the second session, and New Zealand later declared with a massive total.

Bangladesh started their innings in smashing form, with Tamim Iqbal looking comfortable against the New Zealand bowlers, but the visitors still face a mountain to climb.
