It was always felt that once Bangladesh were 6 down then it would end in a bit of a hurry. So, in theory the game could be over within an hour or it could be a draw.
Soumya lasted for 45 minutes or so before edging one to Taylor in the slips.
12:03: The fifth wicket has fallen. Milthan with one of the slowest departures ever seen after scooping Wagner to the stand-in skip around the corner.
12:12: Mahmudullah skies one off Wagner that somehow falls tantalisingly in between sub keeper Bocock and Raval at square leg.
12:13: Next ball in fact. Liton Das chips one down Trent Boult’s throat at fine leg.
The six wicket threshold had been reached.
12:20: Mahmudullah helps himself to 12 off a Southee over.
12:22: Taijul Islam Jumps when trying to defend Wagner and it loops to Latham at silly point. Seven down
12:28: Mustafizur Rahman backs away to a short ball from Southee and top edges it for six.
12:34: Mahmudullah helps himself to 9 runs off a Wagner over to bring up his 50 and keeps the strike. He kept the strike. Well done if a little bit streaky.
12:42: (There had been an injury break) One run off a Southee over, and Mustafizur isn’t allowed to take a single off the last ball.
12:46: Mahmudullah takes a couple off a Wagner over, but loses the strike. There are also some childish verbals at the end of it.
12:47: Boult is back. Mustafizur hits a wind assisted six over the keeper’s head.
12:52: He then has a wafting swipe at a full ball on middle stump and somehow gets a single. Mahmudullah then takes a four to third man, and 200 is up. He loses the strike again though.
12:56: Mustafizur isn’t good enough to edge a couple of short ones from Wagner before, scooping out a single from an attempted yorker. They forgot about the strike bit; that was the last ball of the over.
12:58: Mustafizur then tries to hit a full one from Boult through the Mt Victoria tunnel and is bowled. 16 off 22. Eight down.
13:02: Abu Jayed tries to get out of the way of his first ball. Bocock wants a test catch so he pleads for the review. He gets it, but it’s not out.
13:03: He survives the rest of the over, and New Zealand claims an extra 15 minutes on the back of some little known rule..
13:06: Mahmudullah picks off a boundary on the offside before doing a 360 degree spin and once again Boult is in business at fine leg off Wagner. 67 off 69 is an unorthodox stat when batting to save a test. Nine wickets down.
13:06: Wagner takes a wicket with a full board!! Ebadot Hossain out second ball, Wagner has five, and it’s all over.
