Williamson Lauds New Zealand's 'Patience' on Tough Hamilton Surface

BJ Watling achieves milestone after Tamim Iqbal hundred in Hamilton Test

New Zealand and Bangladesh will meet for the second Test in Wellington, beginning March 8.

New Zealand thoroughly outplayed the visitors in Hamilton, thrashing them by an innings-and-52-run to go one-nil up in the three-match series.

While Bangladesh put up a strong fight in the second innings, posting 429 runs on the board with centuries to Soumya Sarkar and the skipper himself, they never recovered from being bowled out for 234 runs as New Zealand raced ahead with a 481-run first-innings lead. The remaining five wickets lasted only 18 overs.

The Black Caps captain Kane Williamson is officially New Zealand's greatest cricketer of all time.

Although Trent Boult finished with a five-for in the second innings, he would be a little peeved at conceding runs at 4.39 over 28 overs.

146 - Mahmudullah's off 229 balls against New Zealand in Hamilton on Sunday was also his highest score in Test. Mahmudullah's previous highest Test score was 136 runs which he scored against West Indies at Mirpur in December a year ago. We knew it would be a big push. There wasn't a huge amount for the bowlers, there wasn't a lot of seam movement. They were just trying to stick with plans for a long period, and perhaps force an error. This was the sixth-best stand in terms of runs for Bangladesh, with the highest being 359 between Shakib Al Hasan and Rahim which was against New Zealand in Wellington in 2017.

Soumya Sarkar on Sunday smashed his maiden Test hundred off 94 balls and by doing so he became the joint quickest hundred-maker for Bangladesh in Test cricket.

Parore has 201 dismissals as a wicketkeeper, while former captain Brendon McCullum retired in 2016 with 209 dismissals, but 31 of those were after he gave up the gloves in 2013. I think we took the easier options in the first innings, and got out.

"They try to swing the new ball to induce the edges and when the cherry gets older they tend to bowl bouncers to intimidate the batsmen".

Jeet Raval (51) and Tom Latham (35), then took New Zealand to 86 without loss at stumps to leave Bangladesh ruing their inability to capitalise on a superb century by Tamim Iqbal or handle the short-pitched bowling of Neil Wagner.

"I thought throughout this whole Test, the bowlers were outstanding".
