In what turned out to be a slow-paced opening session, New Zealand made a couple of inroads to peg Bangladesh back in the first Test at Bay Oval. The visitors were 220 for 4, behind by 108 when the umpires signalled Lunch. The hosts bowled with better discipline in the first session, with the indefatigable Neil Wagner bagging the crucial wicket of Mahmudul Hasan Joy (78). The Bangladesh batting unit came up with a herculean effort as they posted 401 for six in reply to New Zealand's 328, securing a lead of 73 runs with four wickets in hand.
