Day 5: Bangladesh vs New Zealand Live Streaming 1st Test 2013
Lunch New Zealand 469 and 218 for 3 (Taylor 31*, McCullum 8*) lead Bangladesh 501 by 186 runs
The draw had been the most likely result at the start of the final day of the first Test in Chittagong, and it became a near certainty by lunch. Bangladesh struck twice in the morning session after both overnight batsmen, Peter Fulton and Kane Williamson, made half-centuries but with the New Zealand lead closing in on 200, unless there is an adventurous declaration, the game is set to end in a stalemate.

Opener Fulton hit his second fifty of the match but once again he couldn't go on to make a century as he was trapped lbw by offspinner Sohag Gazi for a three-and-a-half hour 59. Williamson had been a bit more enterprising during the 101-run stand for the second wicket with Fulton, and he seemed headed for his second century in the game.
Fulton had achieved a similar feat earlier this year, against England, but Williamson couldn't join that club as he was freakishly caught at short leg for 74. On a short ball from Gazi, Williamson pulled fiercely and when Anamul Haque at short leg jumped to take evasive action, the ball got lodged between his legs, giving Bangladesh their second breakthrough of the morning.
