“The footholes are breaking up slightly, the soil is a bit loose. There are some cracks opening up and it means that the wicket will be tougher to bat on as the Test moves. It is still a good batting surface, but will only get difficult to bat on over the next couple of days,” says Craig Cumming.
Hello and welcome to the Live Blog for Day 2 of the first Test between New Zealand and Bangladesh at Seddon Park, Hamilton. On a pitch that wasn’t helping much movement, Tamim Iqbal set the tone with his blistering knock in the first couple of sessions. However, From 121 for 1, Bangladesh ended up being bowled out for 234, with Neil Wagner’s short-ball tactics giving him a five-wicket haul. Jeet Raval then led the home team’s reply with a half-century, putting on an unbeaten 86-run stand with Tom Latham to ensure it was New Zealand’s day. Can Bangladesh turn things around like New Zealand did on Day 1?
