Bangladeshi players are thinking only one thing right now, that’s all about to take all wickets of Black Caps on the third day as early as possible. Bowlers of Bangladesh did a fantastic job on the 2nd day of the last test match. In a word Bangladesh dominated the whole 2nd day of the game. Pacer Kamrul Islam Rabbi started the main action, and Shakib Al Hasan ended that on the 2nd day. This kind of low scoring match always carries something miracle in this format of cricket. Maybe Bangladesh is also going to make that happen.
How bowlers dominated the 2nd day, if they can keep it up then people may have a dramatic ending of this match. Kamrul took two wickets in an over, and that was the main turning point for Bangladesh after that momentum of the game shifted to Bangladesh. Black Caps batsmen couldn’t read opponent’s bowlers. Black Caps opener Latham started to play well, and he was going to be dangerous for Bangladesh, but Taskin Ahmed didn’t let him do that. He was caught behind the stump by Nurul Hasan.
Taskin’s unbelievable delivery made him fool and showed the way to the pavilion. Jeet Raval and Kane Williamson were trying to set and build a partnership, but they couldn’t do that also. Kamrul Islam Rabbi’s two magic delivery sent them to the dugout. Ross Taylor and Latham’s company was the main source of the run for New Zealand. After Latham’s departure, Ross Taylor was scoring alone. Mehedi Hasan’s special delivery was too hard to judge for Taylor, and he caught out by the substitute fielder Taijul Islam.
Last four overs of the day of Shakib Al Hasan was another turning point for Bangladesh. His last 14 balls were just like a nightmare to the New Zealand’s players. Santner, B Watling, and Grandhomme were got out by Shakib within only four runs. By the end of the day, it can easily say that if Bangladesh can take all three wickets of New Zealand on the 3rd day as soon as possible, then it can be pretty much tough for New Zealand to win this last test match.
