NZ out for 437, leads Bangladesh by 155 runs
MIRPUR, Bangladesh (AP) — New Zealand lost its two remaining wickets to be dismissed for 437 on Thursday, taking a 155-run first-innings lead over Bangladesh on day four of the second cricket test.
BJ Watling remained unbeaten on 70, while Ish Sodhi was run out on 58 and Trent Boult was trapped lbw by Abdur Razzak for 4.
New Zealand resumed the day on 419-8, but faltered quickly to add only 18 runs in seven overs in the morning session.
Shakib Al Hasan returned 5-103 and Razzak took 2-96.
On Wednesday, Corey Anderson’s maiden century and half centuries by tailenders Watling and Sodhi helped New Zealand surpass 400 and into a strong position to win the series after the first test was drawn at Chittagong.
Anderson was the star with 116 in only his second test on a day when the Kiwis scored more than 300 for the loss of five wickets.
