1 min read

New Zealand 180 (Phillips 87, Mehidy 3-53, Taijul 3-64) and 139 for 6 (Phillips 40*, Santner 35*, Mehidy 3-52) beat Bangladesh 172 (Mushfiqur 35, Phillips 3-31, Santner 3-65) and 144 (Zakir 59, Ajaz 6-57, Santner 3-51) by four wickets

New Zealand triumphed in the Dhaka Test, defeating Bangladesh by four wickets and leveling the series 1-1. Glenn Phillips played a key role in the victory, scoring an unbeaten 40 runs and hitting the winning runs with his fifth boundary.
The match will be remembered as a low-scoring affair, with the two sides facing just 1069 balls, the seventh-lowest in a Test with at least 36 wickets falling.
New Zealand faced a tough challenge when they were reduced to 69 for 6, but Phillips and Mitchell Santner’s unbroken seventh-wicket stand of 70 led them to victory. Ajaz Patel’s 6 for 57 on the fourth morning set up New Zealand’s win, with Bangladesh being bowled out for 144 in the second innings.

Although New Zealand struggled early in the chase, they managed to overcome the low target. Shoriful Islam got Bangladesh their first breakthrough by dismissing Devon Conway for 2, while Taijul Islam removed Kane Williamson and Mehidy Hasan Miraz trapped Henry Nicholls in front.
