The pitch in Wellington is still seemed pretty much good to bat on and two overnight stayed batsmen Latham and Nicholls had remained intact during the first hour of today. Shakib al Hasan, who had bowled only seven overs yesterday, then came to the scenario and sent back Nicholls. Subashis Roy struck after to pick up the new man Grandhomme and rendered Bangladesh to take back the dominating possession in the game.


Tom Latham has batted impressively all along his innings but fell short by 33 runs to score his maiden double ton as Shakib trapped him by LBW just a couple of minutes before lunch. New Zealand have gone to lunch on 402 for 6. They are still 193 runs behind of Bangladesh.

There is a forecast of rain today and the condition is too much misty and foggy in Wellington. However, the umpires had decided to begin at 10:30 to cover up the loss of first day. Bangladesh will certainly feel disappointment if rain interrupts the play again.
