Cricket news - Live Cricket Score: New Zealand vs Bangladesh, 1st Test, Day 4, Hamilton
The positive batting from Bangladesh continues, with Mahmudullah scoring three fours off de Grandhomme across two overs to bring up the double century stand. The skipper has moved into the 70s, helping Bangladesh to 326 for 4, trailing by 155.
Day 4, Lunch:
An excellent partnership between Sarkar and Mahmudullah has frustrated the New Zealand bowlers. With their undefeated 184-run stand, they have helped Bangladesh to 310 for 4 at Lunch, bringing down the deficit to 171. Can they continue the fightback in the second session?
Fifty for Mahmudullah, partnership crosses 150:
It has been a good batting performance from Bangladesh's fifth wicket pair so far today. Mahmudullah brings up a well-compiled half-century, coming down the track and depositing an Astle delivery over the long-off fence. The partnership has also crossed 150 while the deficit is now below 200.
Hundred for Sarkar:
Having managed a six off Astle and a four off Southee, a single gives Sarkar immense joy as he brings up his maiden Test ton. He gets there off 94 deliveries, the joint fastest Test hundred for Bangladesh. The visitors are 273 for 4, trailing by 208.
A good partnership this, which has reached the 100-run mark with Mahmudullah and Sarkar handling the barrage of short deliveries well so far. The scoring rate has also been good for Bangladesh who move to 231 for 4, trailing by 250.
Fifty for Sarkar:
A fine knock from the 26-year-old, who brings up his fifth Test fifty. He gets there with a six off Boult as Bangladesh reduce the deficit below 300.
Mahmudullah and Sarkar extend their defiance as they bring up a half-century stand early on Day 4. But Bangladesh will need a lot more if they are to take this game deep into the day.
Hello and welcome to the Live Blog for Day 4 of the first Test between New Zealand and Bangladesh at Seddon Park in Hamilton. It was yet another day of dominance by New Zealand, who are six wickets away from a facile win. Kane Williamson's unbeaten 200 helped them scale 700 for the first time in Test cricket, with offspinner Mehidy Hasan recording the sixth most expensive figures. The visitors ended the day at 174 for 4, still needing 307 runs to make New Zealand bat again. Will they be able to do that?
