If you woke up late and expected to watch some average fightback from Bangladeshi batsmen after their troublesome days in the shorter format, then surely you have missed the beauty of cricket. No adjective is adequate to describe the brilliancy of Shakib al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim as they have rewritten many pages of the record book and taken Bangladesh to a pinnacle of utter dominance in the second day of Wellington test.

Shakib and Mushfiq are absolutely outstanding to play all over the grounds. Their current partnership is now the best partnership in test cricket for Bangladesh in any wicket. They have surpassed the previous best of 312 which was made by Tamim and Kayes in Khulna against Pakistan.
