An hour of milestones for the Black Caps in Wellington - 11-Mar

An hour of milestones for the Black Caps in Wellington - 11-Mar

Trent Boult, Tim Southee and Matt Henry were all wicket-less in their opening spells as Bangladesh made its way comfortably to 75 before the first wicket fell in the 21st over.

Wagner then nabbed Taijul Islam with a short ball that hit the gloves and floated to silly point for an easy catch by Tom Latham.

Taylor came to the crease with New Zealand 8-2 in reply to Bangladesh's first innings of 211, forced to bat in approaching darkness on a green pitch that produced sharp seam movement and venomous bounce.

In doing so he moved ahead of his mentor, Martin Crowe, on New Zealand's list of test century-makers.

After the first two days were washed out, the match finished in the first session of the final day in Wellington as New Zealand completed a fifth consecutive series win for the first time.

New Zealand's captain is an unlikely starter in the third cricket test against Bangladesh in Christchurch on Saturday, but the nature of his grade one pectoral muscle tear means they're yet to rule him out.

Wagner then started his demolition with two wickets taken by tempting the batsmen into hook shots down the leg side.

Mahmudullah was dismissed in similar fashion to Mithun while Ebadat Hossain was bowled for a duck.

But after the Black Caps tore through Bangladesh's batting order on the third day, veteran batsman Ross Taylor backed them up with an impressive double-century yesterday to set up today's thrilling conclusion. They then received a lesson in seam bowling technique for Bangladesh's Abu Jayed who hit a ideal length, made the ball duck about and dismissed New Zealand openers Tom Latham for 4 and Jeet Raval for 3.

Williamson sat out the final day with a shoulder injury he suffered on day three of the Test while Watling strained his hamstring during warm-ups on day five.

However, their bowlers made the most of the conditions, Abu Jayed (2-18) getting both openers. To make matters worse, just two ball later, Shadman Islam dropped a chance in the slip cordon. Had we held on those, the bowlers might have gotten their confidence back.

"Even though missing catch is the part of game, we have to be careful because we can't allow these sort of misses to continue", he said.
