Spinners were getting amazing turn from the very first day, 15 wickets fell; New Zealand’s condition is poor


BAN vs NZ Mirpur Test: After losing the first match of the two-match Test series against Bangladesh, New Zealand’s condition has worsened in the second match as well. By the end of the first day of the Test being played in Mirpur, the Kiwi team had lost 5 wickets for just 55 runs. Here the spinners are getting a lot of turn right from the beginning. This is the reason why 15 wickets fell on the first day of the match. Out of these 15, 13 wickets were taken by the spinners.

In this match, Bangladesh captain Nazmul Hussain Shanto won the toss and chose to bat first. The spinners got help from the beginning on the pitch and Bangladesh’s wickets kept falling at regular intervals. Zakir Hasan (8) was sent to the pavilion by Mitchell Santner and Mahmudul Hasan Joy (14) was dismissed by Ejaz Patel. Mominul Haq (5) also became Patel’s victim. Captain Shanto (9) was declared LBW on Santner’s ball. Within 15 overs in the first session, Bangladesh team had lost all four top order batsmen for 47 runs.

Mushfiqur Rahim was out in a strange manner
From here Mushfiqur Rahim (35) and Shahadat Hussain (31) made a partnership of 57 runs and took the Bangladesh team beyond 100. On this score, Mushfiqur was given out for obstructing the fielding. After this, again the wickets of Bangladesh team started falling back to back and the entire team was reduced to 172 runs. Mehdi Hasan Miraj (20), Naeem Hasan (13) struggled for some time for Bangladesh. The remaining tail batsmen returned to the pavilion cheaply. For New Zealand, Mitchell Santner and Glenn Phillips took 3-3, Ajaz Patel took 2 and Team Saudi took one wicket.

Taijul Islam and the havoc of Mehdi
After this amazing performance by New Zealand bowlers, Bangladeshi spinners created havoc. Mehdi Hasan Miraz sent Devon Conway (11) to the pavilion for a total of 20 runs. Tom Latham (4) also left after adding two runs. The downfall of the adversaries continued in the same manner. Kane Williamson (13), Henry Nicholls (1) and Tom Blundell (0) were out cheaply. In this way, by the end of the day’s play, the Kiwi team had scored 55 runs and lost 5 wickets. Taijul Islam took 3 wickets and Mehdi Hasan Miraj took 2 wickets. Now Daryl Mitchell (12) and Glenn Phillips (5) will have a big responsibility on the pitch the next day.
