I thought we did that really well and obviously got the rewards for it," said Wagner who finished with five for 47 from his barrage of bouncers. <p></p> <p></p>"Tamim obviously batted extremely well and... made it quite hard for us and we had to fight hard to get those wickets." <p></p> <p></p>Tamim, Bangladesh's most prolific Test run-scorer of all time, laid the foundations for a potentially huge total when he laid into the bowling. <p></p> <p></p>He cracked 21 fours and a six as he feasted on fruitless New Zealand efforts, led by Southee and Boult, to find the edge of his bat. <p></p> <p></p>But there was minimal support, and after Tamim had steered Bangladesh to 180 for four, his dismissal triggered a collapse where the last six wickets fell for 54 runs.
