Day 2: Bangladesh vs New Zealand Live Streaming 2nd Test 2013
Bangladesh vs New Zealand Live Streaming, 2nd Test Day 2 Match of New Zealand tour of Bangladesh 2013 at Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka played on October 22, 2013.
Continuous rain from the afternoon forced an early end to the first day's play of the Mirpur Test but Bangladesh would see it as a blessing in disguise as it stopped a batting rot from taking larger form. Opener Tamim Iqbal, who fell five runs short of his first century since June 2010, was part of a string of soft dismissals which undermined two impressive sessions with the bat, and hampered the home side's plans of putting up a large first innings score.
The New Zealand bowlers were lucky on three out of the five wickets to fall, but the four-man pace attack worked hard to keep the batsmen on a leash. Neil Wagner, drafted in to replace Bruce Martin, took two wickets and generally looked sprightly. He complemented Trent Boult, the quicker of the two, well and made sure Doug Bracewell's ten expensive overs didn't hurt them too much. Though Bracewell was the most unfortunate, as Tamim was dropped twice - on 5 and 10 - of his bowling.
