Bangladesh players could not sleep whole night thinking of win over NZ: Mominul

Ebadot
Hossain
picked
up
a
six-wicket
haul
in
the
second
innings
as
Bangladesh
defeated
New
Zealand
by
eight
wickets
in
the
first
Test
here
at
the
Bay
Oval,
Mount
Maunganui
on
Wednesday
(January
5).

“I
can’t
describe
it.
It
is
unbelievable.
I
couldn’t
sleep
yesterday
because
of
pressure
and
not
knowing
what
would
happen
today.

“It
was
very
important
to
win
this
Test
match.
If
you
see
two
years
back,
we
didn’t
play
much
Test
cricket.
We
are
keen
to
improve
in
Test
cricket
and
everyone
knows
we
have
to
improve,”
said
Mominul
Haque
after
the
game
ended.

“It
was
a
team
performance

batting,
bowling,
and
fielding.
All
three
departments
did
really
well,
especially
our
bowlers.
They
used
the
moisture
of
the
first
innings
to
bowl
really
well
and
they
did
the
same
in
the
second
innings.
Batting
was
really
good
as
well,”
he
added.

The
first
innings
of
both
teams
took
majority
of
the
first
four
days
of
the
test.
Kiwis
scored
328
runs
in
the
first
innings
led
by
Devon
Conway’s
122-run
performance.

Bangladesh
responded
with
458
runs
for
their
stint
with
the
bat,
with
the
score
being
helped
by
big
performances
from
Mahmudul
Hasan
Joy
(78),
Najmul
Hossain
Shanto
(64),
Mominul
Haque
(88),
and
Liton
Das
(86).

New
Zealand’s
second-inning
batting
efforts
crumbled
at
the
hands
of
a
6-wicket
spell
by
Ebadat
Hossain
that
ultimately
meant
that
the
Kiwis
could
only
set
a
target
of
39
runs
for
Bangladesh
to
chase
down,
which
they
did
with
ease
to
earn
their
first
win
in
New
Zealand,
first-ever
win
vs
New
Zealand,
and
their
first-ever
test
win
against
a
top-five
team
in
the
world.

“It
was
a
disappointing
performance
from
Day
1.
The
position
we
were
in
at
lunch
time
and
then
on,
we
simply
weren’t
at
our
best.

“We
know
how
we
can
be
with
the
bat
and
the
ball;
it
is
just
a
case
of
trying
to
doing
things
for
longer.
We
managed
to
build
partnerships
through
that
first
innings
but
losing
5
for
70
on
Day
2
didn’t
allow
us
to
get
to
the
400-450
run
mark,”
said
New
Zealand
captain
Tom
Latham.

“Bangladesh
pushed
themselves
to
the
front
of
the
game
and
put
us
under
a
lot
of
pressure
through
their
batting
innings…
They
(Bangladesh)
were
confident
and
bowled
really
well.
Full
respect
to
them,
they
certainly
outplayed
us
through
the
five
days,”
he
added.

The
second
and
final
Test
match
will
be
played
at
Hagley
Oval,
Christchurch
on
January
9
and
conclude
on
January
13.
The
test
series
between
New
Zealand
and
Bangladesh
will
be
streamed
live
on
Amazon
Prime
Video.
