3:43pm - TEA

Another session for Bangladesh. They've added 87 runs without losing a wicket, and are just 21 runs away from parity with New Zealand.

For the Blackcaps, they'll need a serious rev up over the break, otherwise they'll be facing the prospect of ending their run of nine consecutive test victories against Bangladesh on home soil.

Southee comes around the wicket, and Mominul steers the ball down to third man and comes back for three, chance of a run out at the batter's end! It's close, Das' bat is in the air after diving as the bails are removed - but he'd grounded it first, meaning it's not out.

Boult to continue - should be the last over before drinks.

Big LBW shout on Mominul but Gaffney shakes his head. Latham goes upstairs, but it's pitching outside leg. 

1:40pm - Back for the second session - New Zealand bowled superbly in the first two hours but didn't get enough rewards. 

Second Session

Wrap: That's been an interesting two hours of cricket - Bangladesh didn't really go anywhere losing 2/45, but they didn't lose wickets back-to-back which has halted New Zealand's charge.
Big session up next - the Blackcaps could wrap up the middle-lower order or they could be chasing the cherry all around the park. Back soon.

10:59am - Helo folks - stunning day in the Mount today - a great day for batting? We will see. Blackcaps need wickets early.

Kia ora, good morning and welcome to Newshub's live coverage of the opening Blackcaps v Bangladesh at Mt Maunganui's Bay Oval.

After Devon Conway's century set the tone for New Zealand on the opening day, the tourists fought back valiantly on Sunday, wrapping up the home team's lower order cheaply and laying a strong foundation to challenge a 328-run target.

Bangladesh will resume this morning at 175/2, with opener Mahmudul Hasan Joy unbeaten on 70 and captain Monimul Hague on eight.

Joy's 104-run partnership with Najmul Hossain Shanto has put them in prime position to kick on and perhaps establish a first-innings lead over the reigning world test champions on their home turf.

The pair frustrated New Zealand's much-vaunted four-prong pace attack of Trent Boult, Tim Southree, Neil Wagner and Kyle Jamieson, with only Wagner enjoying any success.

When play begins at 11am, the Blackcaps will want to capture early wickets to re-establish their authority on proceedings, as they chase a valuable victory in their defence of the world crown.

NZ 328 (Conway 122, Nicholls 75, Young 52, Shoriful 3/69, Mehidy 3/86) Bangladesh 175/2 (Joy 70no, Shanto 64, Wagner 2/27) 

New Zealand: Tom Latham (c), Will Young, Devon Conway, Ross Taylor, Henry Nicholls, Tom Blundell (wicketkeeper), Rachin Ravindra, Kyle Jamieson, Tim Southee, Neil Wagner, Trent Boult

Bangladesh: Shadman Islam, Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Mominul Haque (c), Mushfiqur Rahim, Liton Das (wicketkeeper), Yasir Ali, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Taskin Ahmed, Ebadot Hossain, Shoriful Islam 

TAB odds: NZ $1.46, draw $3.15, Bangladesh $9.20
