Bangladesh 126 (Yasir 55, Boult 5-43, Southee 3-28) trail New Zealand 521 for 6 dec (Latham 252, Conway 109, Blundell 57*, Shoriful 2-79) by 395 runs
Christchurch: David slew Goliath in the first test of the ongoing Test series when Bangladesh beat the reigning World Test Champions on their own soil for a landmark victory.
However, this second game is proving the Goliaths were only momentarily upset, as New Zealand's Day 2 performance has given them a massive advantage in the second test.
Tom Latham continued off his 186-run performance from Day 1 and ended up with a massive 252-run individual total. The Kiwis declared their innings with a team total of 521-6, and Bangladesh were up to bat.
Eyeing a reprisal of their great batting performances in the first test, Bangladesh's top-order capitulated under Trent Boult and Tim Southee's electric bowling, leaving the top-order skittled at just 11/4.
Bangladesh ended with a total of 126, led by Yasir Ali and Nurul Hasan.
Trent Boult ended the innings with 5-43, including his 300th Test wicket to join Sir Richard Hadlee, Daniel Vettori, and his new-ball partner Tim Southee among New Zealanders who have taken 300 wickets in Tests.
New Zealand will return to bat to open Day 3 and look to close out this Test series to mark a grand send-off for veteran Ross Taylor, who is playing his final Test match.
Bangladesh will look to orchestrate a herculean comeback to get back into the game.
Considering how they broke the odds to win the first game, they will be fighting to the end of this game.
