Corey Anderson’s ton helped New Zealand to 318 for seven against Bangladesh despite a fifer from Shakib Al Hasan on Day three of the second Test at Dhaka.
Kane Williamson and Anderson’s 140-run fifth wicket partnership were the highlight of the Kiwi innings so far. New Zealand are 36 runs ahead of Bangladesh who scored 282 in their first essay.
The partnership was broken by Abdur Razzaq after Williamson went for an aerial shot and was caught by Tamim Iqbal at deep mid-wicket. Within a span of 20 runs even Anderson fell for 116 caught by Sohag Gazi of Al-Amin Hussain.
Just before tea, Shakib managed to dismiss Doug Bracewell to complete his five-wicket haul.
Bangladesh 282 (Tamim Iqbal 95, Marshall Ayub 41, Mominul Haque 47; Neil Wagner 5 for 64, Ish Sodhi 3 for 59) trail New Zealand 318 for 7 (Kane Williamson 62, Corey Anderson 116; Shakib Al Hasan 5 for 71) by 36 runs.
