Hagley Oval, Christchurch, March 16, at 03:30 AM IST
Bangladesh were taken down yet again in the second Test even after the first two days of the Test match were called-off due to rain. It was yet another clinical display from the hosts who celebrated yet another victory in the series this time by an innings and 12 runs.
Now, when the two teams march for the final game at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch, the hosts will only look to secure a clean-sweep, whereas, the visitors will look for a consolating win.
After wrapping up Bangladesh for a partly 211 on a relatively wet surface, the onus was on the Kiwi batsmen to take a heavy lead in the first innings. If Trent Boult and Neil Wagner were the shining stars in bowling, it was Ross Taylor’s third double century which made the headlines on day 4 of the Test match.
It was a prominent batting display from the experienced cog who surpassed Martin Crowe tally for most Test hundreds by a Kiwi batsman en route to his 18th Test ton. His knock not only helped them reach a big score but also led the foundation for the bowlers to make it count in the second innings.
Bangladesh are looking completely baffled after a havoc show on this tour so far. Their World Cup preparations looked obsolete when they featured in the ODI series where they weren’t able to win a single game, and now with the same performance in Tests, they find themselves in a state of bother.
A consolation win is what they need here to see-off this not so worthy tour which they would want to forget sooner rather than later.
