Bangladesh 391-4 at tea on day 2, 1st test vs. New Zealand

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — Shakib Al Hasan and Musfiqur Rahman posted centuries in a record-breaking unbeaten 231-run stand which lifted Bangladesh to 391-4 at tea on Friday, the second day of the first test against New Zealand.

Shakib was 126 not out and Mushifqur 112 not out, having put Bangladesh in command of the test despite losing the toss and being sent in to bat.

The pair not only survived the arrival of the second new ball shortly after lunch but accelerated their scoring, pushing the run rate for the innings to almost four per over. They scored at 4.69 throughout the second session.

Tim Southee, usually noted for his economy, had taken 2-132 from 27 overs by tea, conceding almost five runs per over; Trent Boult who struggled with cramp late in the session had taken 1-106 from 25 overs at 4.24 runs per over.

Boult was often too full and Southee too short, and Shakib and Mushfiqur were well equipped to take full advantage. Both played the cut shot with great skill but were quick to move into the drive when Boult, especially, over-pitched.

By tea, New Zealand had captured only one wicket in the 59 overs bowled so far on the second day. Mominul Haque was out for his overnight score of 64 in the second over of the morning, caught by wicketkeeper B.J. Watling off Southee.

Shakib reached his fourth test century from 150 balls with 13 boundaries. At 71 he became the third Bangladesh batsman after Tamim and Habibul Bashar to score 3,000 runs in tests; at 162 the partnership between Shakib and Mushfiqur became the highest by a Bangladesh pair for all wickets against New Zealand; at 99 he overtook Habibul (3,026) as the second-highest run-scorer for Bangladesh in test cricket.
