Narper 2017-01-12 20:49:31 

Ton to Shakib
Wagner to Shakib, 1 run, and he gets there. No fuss. An in-tailer on the pads and clipped away all too easily down to fine leg. You do not invite his side and once you do he pockets a century for himself.

Shakib Al Hasan 100 (150b 13x4 0x6)

Narper 2017-01-12 21:07:41 

Current partnership 200 runs, 49.2 overs, RR: 4.05 (Mushfiqur Rahim 97, Shakib Al Hasan 100)

Narper 2017-01-12 21:22:40 

ton for mushie

Southee to Rahim, FOUR, and there's the century. Through that third man region. In rather streaky fashion but he'll take it.

Wonder if they're going to fine/suspend Watling for claiming that catch like they did our Ramdin.

In reply to Narper

watched up to just after tea and it was magnificient batting by Bangla. Very positive and aggressive. I cannot understand how Watling did not know that he had dropped that catch off Shakib.

Ridge 2017-01-13 10:06:53 

When last a touring team made over 500 runs in New Zealand?
Go Bangladesh!

Drapsey 2017-01-13 17:36:37 

The commies keep panning to the Bangla bench, yet bowling coach Walsh is nowhere in sight.

Whappen, him lose the work?

He was called for pelting before and had his action remodeled.

Good 50 Kane.

Narper 2017-01-13 20:57:37 

Taskin Ahmed to Williamson, FOUR, #25. He has made it a habit of helping himself to these landmarks has Williamson. Off a freebie drifting down leg and gets the tickle very fine to take it past a diving keeper

Narper 2017-01-13 20:57:45 

Gawn !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!caught behind

Taskin Ahmed to Williamson, out Caught by Kayes!! Oh taskin. You beauty. The persistance of staying loyal to that line nagging around the fourth stump finally pays off. And he gets it in the form of the big man. For the first time in this innings, Williamson finds himself prodding

Williamson c Kayes b Taskin Ahmed 53(55) [4s-8]

Narper 2017-01-13 21:26:47 

Ross on Fyah

Shakib to Ross Taylor, FOUR, down the track once again and right to the pitch of the delivery this time to hammer it putting his whippy wrists to good use once again. Through his favoured cow corner

Shakib to Ross Taylor, FOUR, galloping down the wicket, inherits the ball in his arc and holds himself back with his charge to avoid getting foxed by the dip. All this before he whips it through mid-wicket

Taskin Ahmed to Ross Taylor, FOUR, and the luck comes to his rescue now. The result though remains the same. Much straighter from Taskin and Taylor is quite late to get into his driving mode. And by the time he gets bat to it, the ball had already scissored back in and the French cut takes it past the sticks

Taskin Ahmed to Ross Taylor, FOUR, and he goes again. A real ordinary delivery from Ahmed going wider off the gifty length and Taylor isn't holding himself back. Chases it with a full swing of the bat coming down to drive it through the covers on this occasion. Is in some mood here is Taylor

Taskin Ahmed to Ross Taylor, FOUR, beautifully played. A half volley outside off - yes - but he goes very square with his drive timing the pants off it

Imagine if they had declared earlier? Poor captaincy.

Bangla might still lose this if they are not careful.

Narper 2017-01-15 21:43:42 

Taskin Ahmed to Williamson, FOUR, to sweeper cover

Taskin Ahmed to Williamson, FOUR, four more.

Taskin Ahmed to Williamson, FOUR, classic Williamson. Latches onto a back of a length delivery outside off and punches it through extra-cover. His feet were off the ground when he played the shot

the chase is truly on

Narper 2017-01-15 22:16:50 

Mehedi Hasan Miraz to Taylor, FOUR, slower through the air on off, the full ball is put away as well. Taylor goes low and uses deft touch again. Lap-sweeps it away fine on the leg side. Nobody there in the deep

Mehedi Hasan Miraz to Taylor, FOUR, dropped short and outside off, leans back and deftly late-cuts it away past lone slip. Quite tricky to bowl with this field

Narper 2017-01-15 22:17:04 

New Zealand require another 108 runs with 8 wickets remaining

Narper 2017-01-15 22:17:32 

Shakib to Ross Taylor, FOUR, easy pickings. A nothing delivery off a long hop. Down leg too. All the time in the world for Taylor to open himself up, inherit the line in his zone, plan his spot of attack, swivel and swish it behind square

Narper 2017-01-15 22:18:00 

Subashis Roy to Williamson, FOUR, starts off with a sitter.
