    Bangladesh have parity bordering on dominance against New Zealand at tea on the third day of the opening cricket test at Mt Maunganui

    Bangladesh have parity bordering on dominance against New Zealand at tea on the third day of the opening cricket test at Mt Maunganui


    They have moved to 307 for four, a deficit of 21, with captain Mominul Haque 61 and Liton Das 51 as part of an unbeaten fifth-wicket stand.

    The visitors' pluck and determination has been countered by the hosts' frustration and fatigue.

    Bangladesh have made the most of winning the toss and capitalised on the best of the conditions in both innings thanks to accurate bowling and patient batting, notably through Shoriful Islam and Mahmudul Hasan Joy both playing in their second tests.

    In contrast the Black Caps are paying for the lack of a specialist spinner, notably Ajaz Patel who became the third player in history to take 10-wickets-in-an-innings at Mumbai last month.

    Their pace attack has struggled on a pitch block previously susceptible to turn.
