The faintest of edges through to Watling. Ebadat wasn't convinced but there was a spike as the ball passed the bat. With that catch BJ Watling moves to the top of the list of the most dismissals by a Kiwi keeper with 202. New Zealand complete a comprehensive victory by an innings and 52 runs but they were made to work hard. Bangladesh scrapped hard today and the partnership between Mahmudullah and Soumya Sarkar was flourishing until the new ball turned the match on its head. Quick wickets then fell to Trent Boult who ended the innings with 5-123. It has been a batsman's paradise at Seddon Park and we have seen six centuries including a superb double by the Kiwi captain. Not one for the bowlers and they will be hoping the next Test has a bit more in the wicket for them. Plenty of positives for both sides to take out of the game and even though it looks a big loss Bangladesh can be proud of the fight they showed in the second innings. New Zealand go 1-0 up then in the series as we head to the Basin Reserve for the 2nd Test. Do join us then.

Short, wide and normally this would have flown to the rope. Because of the match situation though everybody is on the edge and Mahmudullah has carved it straight to Trent Boult at deep backward. End of a marvellous innings.
