NZ vs BAN 1st test: Bangladesh beat New Zealand to seal historic win –Bangladesh 458 (Mominul 88, Litton 86, Boult 4-85) and 40 for 2 (Shanto 17, Mominul 13*) defeated New Zealand 328 (Conway 122, Nicholls 75, Shoriful 3-69, Mehidy 3-86) and 169 (Young 69, Taylor 40, Ebadot 6-46, Taskin 3-36) by eight wickets to seal a historic win.

Bangladesh has won their best-ever Test match, defeating reigning World Test champions New Zealand at the Bay Oval, ending the hosts’ 17-match unbeaten home streak.

Ebadot Hossain was named Player of the Match after taking 6/46 in the second innings to help the tourists chase down a target of 40.

Ebadot, who came into the match with a bowling average of 81.54 from 10 Tests, unleashed his full potential in a two-day rampage, finishing with seven wickets for the match. Early in the day, Taskin Ahmed teamed up with Ebadot to bundle the hosts out for just 169 runs, finishing with 3/36.

With Ross Taylor (40), playing his final Test at the age of 40, New Zealand’s hitters had no response for Bangladesh’s deft reverse swing.

As Ebadot tore through Taylor’s defences to send New Zealand to 154/6, the hosts crumbled and were bowled out for just 169 runs. Rachin Ravindra (16) was dismissed for a duck after being surrounded by four players. Shoriful Islam and sub-fielder Taijul Islam took amazing catches to all but seal Bangladesh’s victory – their first away Test win over a top-five ranked team and only their sixth success abroad in 61 attempts.

Despite Shakib Al Hasan, Tamim Iqbal, and Mahmudullah, Bangladesh cruised to victory in 16.5 overs, securing a historic victory.

Bangladesh had not won any of their 43 prior matches in New Zealand, in all three forms, and the result also ended the Kiwis’ eight-series home win streak, which had lasted since 2017.
