Johannesburg, Oct 5: Bangladesh has managed to fight their way back into the second Test against New Zealand in Dhaka boosted by an unbeaten century by youngster Mominul Haque, who put on a record partnership with Tamim Iqbal on Thursday.
Haque, who scored 181 in the first innings of the drawn first Test in Chittagong, led Bangladesh’s batting charge with 126 not out, making him only the second Bangladeshi to score back-to-back Test centuries after Iqbal.
According to Sport24, the hosts reached 269-3 in their second innings at stumps on the fourth day, wiping out New Zealand’s first innings advantage of 155 for an overall lead of 114 runs.
The report mentioned that Haque batted solidly throughout, showing no sign of nerves until he got stuck on 99 for 11 balls, although he reached his century with a boundary over long on off Neil Wagner. (ANI)
