Bangladesh trail by 395 runs

6:30pm - STUMPS

What a day. The Blackcaps are in complete control, leading by 395 runs.

They'll almost certainly enforce the follow-on tomorrow, with Bangladesh's batting order having no answers to the seamers.

Boult finishes with 5/43, his ninth five-wicket-haul, and was supported by Southee and Jamieson.

We'll be back tomorrow, with what could be the final day of the test, and the series.

Join us then!

Jamieson to Yasir, coming around the wicket. Could be the last over of the day.

He's good to go though, Jamieson will continue.

WICKET! And he gets him next ball! Jamieson goes short, and Yasir looks to pull, but hits it straight to Mitchell at midwicket! Yasir goes for a valiant 55, Ebadot Hossain is the last man in.

He survives the over.

BAN 126/9

6:19pm - 40th over

Jamieson to Taskin.

Taskin gets a single, to bring Yasir onto strike.

Yasir gets two runs with a top edged pull shot, and then four through square leg. He gets a single to bring Taskin back onto strike.

Yasir will be on strike for the final ball, and he steals a single to bring up his 50!

Shoriful to face the last ball, and he drives a full toss to cover for two.

Eventful over.

That takes Boult to 299 test wickets. Nurul takes his guard.

Nurul gets off the mark with a clip off his toes for a single to square leg.

BAN 28/5


We're just about ready for the third and final session.

Can the Blackcaps take the final six first innings wickets? Or can Bangladesh resist like they did at Mt Maunganui just last week?

Boult and Southee will almost certainly resume first up, but expect a burst from Kyle Jamieson and Neil Wagner sooner or later.

3:45pm - TEA

What a session for the Blackcaps. Latham notched 250, and Blundell scored a mutch needed 50 before the declaration - before Boult and Southee got stuck in!

Bangladesh trail by 494 runs at the break, and will have to go a long way to even make the Blackcaps bat again.

We'll be back in around 20 minutes for the evening session, join us then.

Southee continues as Mohammad Naim prepares to face his first ball.

Appeal first ball. Naim looks glance down leg and there's a noise through to Blundell, umpire says no and the Blackcaps refer it.

Did it come off the glove? There's a spike as the ball passes the bat, but there's a gap between the two. Not out stands. Naim survives.

WICKET! But he can't survive for long! Southee goes short, and Naim defends off the back foot - but drags back onto the stumps! A duck for Naim, captain Mominul Haque is in next.

3:03pm - 2nd over

BAN 7/0


Right then, Bangladesh's openers are in the middle.

Ross Taylor leads the Blackcaps onto the field, Tim Southee will open up with the ball.


So, Latham has declared, meaning the Blackcaps will have a burst with the new ball before tea.

Bangladesh's openers race from the field, they'll have a tricky period to negotiate before the break.

We're back for the afternoon session, Tom Blundell will take his guard after the break, two balls still to come in the over.


An eventful morning has seen Devon Conway bring up his third test century, Tom Latham's second double-century, and Ross Taylor come and go for probably his final test innings. 

113th over - Shoriful bowls into his 25th over.


Shoriful seems to find the outside edge of Mitchell's bat and it's given out, caught behind. Mitchell wants the review, but snicko shows a clear edge.

As Mitchell leaves, so do Latham and the Bangladeshis, as they take an early lunch.

You could almost give this session to the tourists, after New Zealand began the day at 349/1, but lost 4/74 through the morning.

112th over - Mehidy Hasan Miraz will delivery his first over of spin for the morning, his 26th of the match. Mitchell takes two off his second ball, NZ 422/4

111th over - Shoriful replaces Taskin for his 24th over. Latham cuts him to the boundary, NZ 420/4

110th over - WICKET

Ebadot begins his 30th over and immediately has Nicholls in trouble, finding an inside edge that carries to wicketkeeper Nurul. Initial decision is not out, but Mominul reviews late and wins the decision. 

Daryl Mitchell comes to the crease, and drops and runs to get off the mark.

109th over - Taskin bowls his 28th over, just one wide from it, NZ 414/3

108th over - Ebadot into his 29th over. Latham slaps him legside for a single, NZ 413/3

107th over - Taskin is into his 27th over and lets Latham off the hook, as he fails to secure a ballooning, leading-edge catch, spilling the ball as he dives and hits the ground.

Taskin beats Nicholls' outside edge with his final delivery, NZ 412/3

106th over - Ebadot for his 28th over. Taylor wafts at his third ball outside off-stump, but fortunately finds no connection.


Taylor tries to swing through the legside, but is caught by Shoriful at square. He gets a nice ovation as he leaves the ground, probably his last innings for New Zealand.

Henry Nicholls comes to the crease, after allowing Taylor to exit, NZ 411/3

105th over - Taylor edges Taskin through vacant gully for a boundary. Taskin's sixth ball is a no ball, so he bowls again and Latham hooks airily for two, NZ 411/2

104th over - After drinks, Ebadot begins his 27th over and beats Taylor's outside edge with his second delivery. Taylor takes a single on the last ball to retain strike, NZ 401/2

103rd over - Taskin for his 25th over and Latham slashes edgily past gully for a single. No ball, so a catch wouldn't have counted, NZ 400/2

102th over - Ebadot changes ends and replaces Shoriful. Taylor strokes him through the offside for four, then plays off his hip for two more.

Latham prods at the fifth delivery, which fails to find the edge, NZ 395/2

101th over - Taskin into his 24th over and Latham plays through the offside to the boundary for his double century - the second of his career. Thirty-two boundaries so far, which makes for a pretty rapid scoring rate for tests, NZ 387/2

100th over - Shoriful to continue with his 23rd over. Latham hooks him fine down legside for another boundary.

Latham takes a single off the final ball to close within a run of his double century and retain strike, NZ 383/2

99th over - Taskin Ahmed to bowl his first over of the morning and it yields a couple of singles, NZ 377/2

98th over - Taylor cuts the second ball of Shoriful's 22nd over for four, NZ 375/2

97th over - Ebadot starts his 25th over and Latham takes a couple off the first ball, probably still regretting his ill-advised run that cost Conway his wicket.

Taylor plays elegantly through the offside to get off the mark with a boundary, NZ 371/2

96th over - WICKET

Latham drops and runs, but the ball has gone directly to cover and the direct hit from Mehidy finds Conway short of his ground at the striker's end. Replays confirm he's gone, run out for 109.

That brings Ross Taylor to the crease for possibly/probably his final test innings for New Zealand. He gets a nice reception from the crowd at Hagley Oval and a guard of honour from the Bangladeshis.

Shoriful completes a maiden over, NZ 363/2

95th over - Ebadot starts his 24th over, Conway finds an inside edge and has no idea where that's gone, NZ 363/1

94th over - Shoriful begins his 20th over. His third ball nips back at Latham off the pitch and the NZ skipper fends it off late.

Latham cuts the next ball to the rope for four - his first runs of the morning, NZ 361/1

93rd over - Ebadot for his 23rd over and it's a maiden, NZ 357/1

92nd over - Shoriful Islam takes the ball for his 19th over and takes Tom Latham on the thigh pad, too high for a meaningful lbw shout.

 A maiden, NZ 357/1

91st over - Ebadot Hossain to bowl the opening over of the day and Devon Conway wastes no time bringing up his century, glancing fine off his pads to the boundary - his second ton of the series and third century of his short test career.

Fifth ball hits the shoulder of Conway's bat and flies over the slips for another boundary - no luck for Ebadot. NZ 357/1


Kia ora, good morning and welcome to Newshub's live coverage of the second Blackcaps v Bangladesh test at Christchurch's Hagley Oval.

New Zealand resume day two on 349/1, as captain Tom Latham returns to the crease, eyeing a second test double-century.

Latham finished the opening day on 186 not out, with Devon Conway just one run away from his second century of this series at the other end.

The pair added an unbeaten 201 runs and both hope to hit their milestones when play resumes.

After Bangladesh's historic upset at Mt Maunganui, the Blackcaps are already in a much more dominant position to take out the second test.

Despite the bowler-friendly conditions on offer, the visitors have struggled to take wickets, with only Shoriful Islam (1/50) successful, as he scalped opener Will Young (54).

If (or when) Latham or Conway falter, veteran Ross Taylor will come to the crease for possibly his last test innings for New Zealand.

New Zealand: Tom Latham, Will Young, Devon Conway, Ross Taylor, Henry Nicholls, Daryl Mitchell, Tom Blundell, Kyle Jamieson, Tim Southee, Neil Wagner, Trent Boult

Bangladesh: Shadman Islam, Mohammed Naim, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Mominul Haque, Nurul Hasan, Liton Das, Yasir Ali, Mehidy Hasan, Taskin Ahmed, Ebadot Hossain, Shoriful Islam

TAB Odds: NZ $1.13, draw $5.75, Bangladesh $43
