Bangladesh 144 all out, NZ need 137 to win 2nd Test

Bangladesh were all out for 144 runs in their second innings Saturday (December 9) to set New Zealand a target of 137 to win the second Test in Dhaka.

Zakir Hasan top-scored with 59 runs for Bangladesh while Ajaz Patel took 6-57 for the tourists.

Ajaz Patel broke the 33-run stand between Zakir Hasan and Mominul Haque to get the first scalp of the day. Mominul, who scored 10, was trapped leg-before and the southpaw did not review. 

Mominul's dismissal marked a spectacular collapse triggered by the left-arm duo of Mitchell Santner and Patel. Santner picked up the wickets of Mushfiqur Rahim and Shahadat Hossain in successive overs to reduce the Tigers to 88-5.

Bangladesh could only add 56 for the last five wickets. 

Zakir's 59 off 86 was the only saving grace for Bangladesh before Patel sent him back as the ninth batter.
