    The way these Bangladeshis have handled the short balls our Pakistani batsmen can only dream of it. Except Shaan Masood the rest of ours would have collapsed like a pack of cards.

    Also Soumya reminds me a bit of Haris. Haris has a better defence but Soumyo's better offence makes up for it.

    Lol, really?

    They should have scored 400-500 first innings but let Wagner bounce them out of the game. Check their previous tour to NZ and you'll see Wagner was using the same strategy then as well

    Bravo.
    I fear once a wicket falls, a procession will begin. This partnership should go on and on and on

    Come on man. There’s a world of difference between this pitch and the ones SA dished out for us. This has turned into a flat road with even bounce whereas our bats were up against it against a pacier attack on uneven pitches. No need to be critical just for the sake of it.

    This leg spinner Astle looks rubbish.

    What happened to the 2 spinners Sommervile and Patel who played against Pakistan.

    They haven't handled his development well. Been throwing him around too much. In and out the team, changing positions, etc.

    Liton Das what a woeful batsman. Cant play at the top, cant play in the middle, cant play ODI, cant play tests.

    Only Soumya is to blame for. He has been given fair amount of consistent run in the team.But he has been inconsistent

    Bangladesh put up a much-improved second-innings performance, but crumbled in the face of a massive deficit to lose the first Test against New Zealand by an innings and 52 runs in Hamilton.

    At 126/4 on the third day, Bangladesh had appeared to be sliding towards a massive defeat, and while they did eventually suffer that fate, they managed to slow down New Zealand’s victory charge, mainly through a 235-run fifth-wicket stand between centurions Soumya Sarkar and Mahmudullah.

    This was Sarkar’s maiden Test ton and Mahmudullah’s career-best score – each of them efforts to be proud of, coming against a world-class New Zealand attack in conditions ripe for them to succeed.

    Soumya Sarkar soaks in the applause after his maiden Test ton Soumya Sarkar soaks in the applause after his maiden Test ton
    As has been the case with Bangladesh throughout this Test, both innings were laced with attacking intent. Between them, Mahmudullah and Sarkar slapped 42 fours and eight sixes. They reinforced the fact that the Bangladesh batsmen possess the shots and the talent, but an inability to show restraint at the critical junctures is their undoing.

    New Zealand had to wait long – nearly 42 overs on day four – before they could break through. But once they did, the procession resumed. Trent Boult stormed to his eighth Test five-wicket haul – also easily his most expensive five-for and the first one to cost over 100 runs.

    The morning, however, had belonged to Sarkar and Mahmudullah. In yet another wicket-less session in this Test, the duo biffed 136 runs in 29 overs. New Zealand, as they have for most of this Test, continued to pitch it short, but Sarkar and Mahmudullah adopted vastly contrasting approaches to deal with it.

    Sarkar pulled and hooked with abandon, collecting the lion’s share of his runs and boundaries behind square on the leg side. Mahmdullah was more circumspect, happy to get under, or on top of, the short stuff, and keep it down. On the occasions he pulled, he made sure to keep it along the ground.

    Tim Southee took Sarkar to 99, and the hundred came two balls later, with a controlled pull to deep square-leg. It had taken Sarkar just 94 balls to get to the landmark, making this the joint-fastest hundred by a Bangladesh batsman, alongside Tamim Iqbal’s 103 while following on against England at Lord’s in 2010.

    Mahmullah walloped leg-spinner Todd Astle for a six down the ground in the next over to move to 50. Astle was the least effective of the New Zealand bowlers, going for 58 runs in 15 overs. Together, Sarkar and Mahmudullah made the most of a surface that had lost a some of the sting it possessed, and cut the deficit down to 120.

    It was only about an hour into the post-lunch session that New Zealand finally had success. Sarkar lazily flicked an incoming Boult delivery that moved back after straightening in the air, to let the ball graze the back pad and go onto the stumps. Mahmudullah, meanwhile, moved to three figures with back-to-back boundaries off Southee. But New Zealand hit right back when Liton Das dragged on a full delivery from Boult.

    Mahmudullah was left fighting a lone battle from that point on, as none among the lower order offered substantial resistance. Perhaps sensing that the end was near, Mahmudullah began expressing himself a lot more freely after the hundred. Having taken 183 balls to get there, he then punched 43 runs off his next 46 balls.

    He became the ninth man dismissed, slicing a short ball from Southee to deep point. That put the seal on his team’s defeat.

    We have seen enough of Pakistani batsmen on a lot of pitches over the years. They struggled even on UAE phattas on a few occasions when the opposition decided to opt this tactic.

    Mahmudullah and Soumya were hooking and pulling at will. Pak would have survived there as well considering the nature of the wicket but these guys were attacking their pacers and scoring 8-10 runs in an over in the first session. Got to give credit where its due.

    Bangladesh should be proud of how they batted in their 2nd innings. Yes the pitch may be dead, but it shows they can fight when they have to.

    Could we have expected such batting display from Pakistani batsmen? Our batsmen would have gotten below 300, and may not have score more than 200 at all
