Dhaka — All-rounder Shakib Al Hasan bagged all three New Zealand wickets that fell on the rain-truncated second day’s play in the Dhaka Test on Tuesday.Kiwis were struggling at 107-3 when the downpour forced an early stump at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium.
Like the first day of the test match on Moday, the play could not be resumed after the tea.
Ross Taylor (37) and Kane Williamson (28) were unbeaten when the umpires called for an early tea due to rain.
After bundling out Bangladesh for 282, the visitors’ progress in the morning session of the second day was halted when Shakib sent back their openers before lunch putting them under pressure at 32 for two.
Peter Fulton scored 14 and Hamish Rutherford made 13. Kane Williamson (1) was unbeaten at the interval.
Earlier, Neil Wagner took a five-wicket haul as New Zealand dismissed Bangladesh for 282 before lunch Tuesday on the second day of the second cricket test.
Wagner struck early in overcast conditions, taking out Bangladesh skipper Mushfiqur Rahim on 18, after he added just four runs to his overnight total. Wagner also dismissed first test centurion Sohag Gazi (14) and Rubel Hossain (4) to return figures of 5-64 and pay back selectors who favored him to left-arm spinner Bruce Martin.
Play started a half hour early to make up for lost overs on the opening day, when rain forced umpires to suspend the last session. But after resuming at 228-5, Bangladesh lost its last five wickets for the addition of just 54 runs.
Legspinner Ish Sodhi  took advantage of some turn and bounce in the pitch and returned 3-59, including the wickets of Nasir Hossain (19) — to a ball that spun sharply — and Abdur Razzak (13).
For Bangladesh, Tamim Iqbal top-scored with 95, followed by Mominul Haque (47) and Marshall Ayub (41).
