Cricket news - Live Cricket Score: New Zealand vs Bangladesh, 1st Test, Day 2, Hamilton
Double century stand:
Raval continues to take toll of short deliveries from Mehidy, this time cutting away one past slip to bring up the 200 for New Zealand. This is the fifth double-century stand for the opening wicket for New Zealand, and the first since October 2003. Latham follows it up with a six and a four of Mehidy to close in on the three-figure mark. New Zealand are 215 for 0, trailing by 19.
Maiden Test ton:
Having been stuck on 92 for nine deliveries, Raval reaches his maiden Test ton with two successive fours off Ebadat, also crossing 1000 Test runs in the process. New Zealand are in command, going to Lunch at 197 for 0, trailing by only 37.
Raval enters the 90s
This is the first time in his Test career that he has entered the 90s, going past the 88 he scored against South Africa at this venue in March 2017. Can he reach his maiden Test ton?
Two back-to-back boundaries for Latham off Khaled powers New Zealand past the 150 mark. Runs coming at a good rate for New Zealand. Bangladesh need quick wickets to force their way back into the game. Can they do that? Meanwhile, Raval and Latham have now scored 1000 runs in partnership, the fourth New Zealand pair with a 1000-plus aggregate.
Fifty for Latham:
Having been put down by Soumya Sarkar off Ebadat Hossain in the second over last evening, Latham has capitalised as he registers a half-century. On 47, Latham also reached the landmark of 3000 runs in his Test career. New Zealand move to 123 for 0.
Raval and Latham have been handling the Bangladesh bowlers without much problems, with not much help for the seamers from the pitch again. An uppish flick that went wide of the mid-wicket fielder helps Latham score the first four of the day, followed by a couple off Abu Jayed which takes the partnership to 100. Raval then guides a Khaled Ahmed delivery past the slip cordon for his first four of the day, bringing up New Zealand's best opening partnership against Bangladesh - surpassing Matt Horne and Mark Richardson's 104-run stand which came in December 2001 in Wellington. Raval follows it up with a confident drive through cover for another four.
"The footholes are breaking up slightly, the soil is a bit loose. There are some cracks opening up and it means that the wicket will be tougher to bat on as the Test moves. It is still a good batting surface, but will only get difficult to bat on over the next couple of days," says Craig Cumming.
Hello and welcome to the Live Blog for Day 2 of the first Test between New Zealand and Bangladesh at Seddon Park, Hamilton. On a pitch that wasn't helping much movement, Tamim Iqbal set the tone with his blistering knock in the first couple of sessions. However, From 121 for 1, Bangladesh ended up being bowled out for 234, with Neil Wagner's short-ball tactics giving him a five-wicket haul. Jeet Raval then led the home team's reply with a half-century, putting on an unbeaten 86-run stand with Tom Latham to ensure it was New Zealand's day. Can Bangladesh turn things around like New Zealand did on Day 1?
