Bangladesh faced a dramatic collapse on Day 4 morning, going from a solid 71-2 to an all-out total of 144, all thanks to the impressive performance of New Zealand’s left-arm spinners, Ajaz Patel (6-57) and Mitchell Santner (3-51). This turn of events has made the Test match quite interesting, as New Zealand now needs 137 to win in the fourth innings and level the series at 1-1.

Ajaz Patel spin’s the game.

The partnership between Mominul Haque and Zakir Hasan had a promising start, with both players confidently hitting boundaries off Tim Southee and Ajaz Patel. The team reached 71-2, looking strong with eight wickets in hand. However, the situation took a drastic turn. Ajaz Patel dismissed Mominul, forcing him to play across the line and sending him back to the pavilion. Shortly after, Santner removed the dangerous Mushfiqur Rahim, catching him at slip.

Mitchell Santner played a supporting role.

Shahadat Hossain fell victim to Santner as well, being trapped in front and losing a review in the process. Although Ajaz Patel couldn’t get Zakir Hasan out due to the point of impact being more than 3 meters from the stumps, Hasan went on to score a crucial fifty, giving Bangladesh a glimmer of hope amid the chaos. However, the wickets continued to fall. Santner caught Mehidy Hasan Miraz off Patel, and Nurul Hasan, after surviving an LBW appeal against Patel thanks to DRS, was dismissed in front of the stumps on the very next ball.

Zakir Hasan became Ajaz Patel’s fifth victim, and despite a frustrating final-wicket stand of 16, New Zealand managed to wrap up Bangladesh’s innings for 144, setting themselves a target of 137 in the final innings. Tom Latham and Devon Conway navigated a three-over spell before lunch, securing four runs without any damage. The stage is now set for an exciting conclusion to the Test match.
