Mominul hits hundred

Mominul Haque struck an unbeaten century as Bangladesh battled back bravely against New Zealand to leave the second Test and series up for grabs after an entertaining fourth day in Mirpur on Thursday.

The 22-year-old left hander was 126 not out alongside Shakib Al Hasan (32) at the close as the hosts reached 269-3 in their second innings for a 114 run lead.

New Zealand could only add 18 to their overnight score with Ish Sodhi (58) run out by Mominul and Abdur Razzak trapping Trent Boult (4) leg before wicket as the tourists were all out for 437, a first innings lead of 155.

Bangladesh, looking for a first Test win over the Black Caps, started their second innings poorly and were 55-2 after seamer Neil Wagner ousted Anamul Haque (22) and Marshall Ayub (9).
