For Bangladesh, at the end of day 1, Mominul Haque (64) and Shakib Al Hasan (05) were at the crease and they will be trying to take the score above 300 before second-day lunch to reach a formidable position against the Kiwis.

Bangladesh won the toss and they decided to bat first. Better playing conditions on day 2 in Wellington.

After winning the toss, Kane Williamson asked Bangladesh to bat first, and his decisions turned fruitful Trent Boult and Tim Southee literally challenged the Bangladesh batting lineup.

Imrul Kayes, the kingpin of the Bangladesh batting department walked back to the pavilion when his score reached just one. Tamim Iqbal scored a quick fifty, but unfortunately, he got dismissed in a magical Trent Boult delivery.

Score at the end of day 3

Mahmadullah (26) showed glimpses of form in the initial balls, but he failed to carry forward the rhythm.

As a shocker, the young left-handed batsman got dismissed in an Wagner delivery.

The pitch in Wellington is already pace friendly, and after the unexpected rain, it will surely emerge as a hell for the visitors, as the hosts have Tim Southee and Trent Boult in their lineup.
