Resuming at 228 for five, Bangladesh were all out for 282. Partnering Wagner at bowling was Ish Sodhi, who picked up three wickets giving away 59 runs.

Earlier on Day One, rain forced early stumps as Bangladesh’s score of 228 for five at tea stayed as it is as the entire post-tea session was washed out.
After winning the toss and electing to bat, Bangladesh began positively despite the loss of Anamul Haque (7) early on. Tamim Iqbal and Marshall Ayub added 67 runs for the second wicket. Ayub struck six fours in his innings before he was dismissed for 41 off 62 balls. He was bowled by Neil Wagner.
Iqbal then put together a 76-run partnership with Mominul Haque for the third wicket. Mominul, who scored a century in the first Test at Chittagong, was dismissed on 47 off 59 balls by Corey Anderson. He scored eight fours.
Then Iqbal, who looked well-set for a fine century, edged a Wagner delivery to Kane Williamson, who took a splendid catch at gully. Iqbal had to depart for 153-ball 95. He struck 17 fours in his innings.
Bangladesh 282 (Tamim Iqbal 95, Marshall Ayub 41, Mominul Haque 47; Neil Wagner 5 for 64, Ish Sodhi 3 for 59) lead New Zealand 32 for 2 (Peter Fulton 14; Shakib Al Hasan 2 for 1) by 250 runs.
