1st Test: Bangladesh clinch historic win over New Zealand

Taijul Islam bagged a six-wicket haul to help Bangladesh beat New Zealand by 150 runs in the first Test in Sylhet on Saturday (December 2).

Chasing a target of 332, New Zealand were bowled out for 181, with Bangladesh taking a 1-0 in the two-match series. 

Earlier, New Zealand stuttered to reach 113-7 at stumps on the fourth day, still needing 219 runs for what looked like an improbable win. 

The Kiwis had taken a narrow seven-run lead in the first innings, but collapsed in the second innings after Najmul Hossain Shanto led from the front, smashing a ton to set the tone for his team.
