PLAYER OF THE MATCH
Ross Taylor

55.6Wagner to Hossain

W
OUT! Timber and it is a 5-fer for Wagner! Full and straight. Ebadot backs away, aiming to go through the off side but the ball is too good for him. Goes under his bat and bang. NEW ZEALAND WIN BY AN INNINGS AND 12 RUNS!

55.5Wagner to Hossain

A full toss outside off, Ebadot backs away to slash but misses.

55.4Wagner to Mahmudullah

W
OUT! In the air and taken! No century for the skipper and Bangladesh are still 12 short of avoiding an innings defeat. Not surprisingly, a short ball, around middle, Mahmudullah looks to pull but is cramped for room. Gets a top edge which skies miles in the air. Trent Boult runs to his right from third man and takes it nicely.

NOT OUT. New Zealand waste a review but they will not care too much about it. They will like to finish this off quickly. A short ball, around middle, Jayed looked to fend it off but missed. The ball went off something, to the naked eye and keeper Bocock appealed. The umpire turned it down and Southee went for the review. Hot Spot showed a mark on the helmet while Snicko showed nothing.

54.3Boult to Rahman

W
OUT! BOWLED! Straight and full, and that's how it is done. A full length delivery on middle stump and straight. Rahman was going for a big shot but misses it completely. The ball knocks the middle stump out. And that's how one gets a tail-ender. Just 2 wickets more for Kiwis to seal the deal for this Test. Can they finish this off in this session itself?

A short ball down the leg side, the skipper looks to pull but misses. Wagner smiles and starts to sledge Mahmudullah. He gets something back in return and both players continue to chirp.

FOUR! Fine shot to bring up a fighting half century. Mahmudullah backs away to this short ball and clubs it straight back over the bowler's head. It has been a wonderful knock. Can someone stay around with him and drag this entertainment a bit longer? A possible century perhaps?
