The spinners continued to dominate on the first morning of the first Test Cricket between New Zealand and Bangladesh in Chittagong.

Resuming the day at 155 for 9, the visitors reached 171 before Shakib Al Hasan took his seventh wicket of the innings to dismiss Iain O'Brien. He ended with figures of 7 for 36, a Bangladesh record against all countries.

This was nice cricket by the Bangladesis

Nice work done by Shakib Al Hasan

A good cricket player

The dismissal of O'Brien was typical of his team. He tried to fend off a ball outside the leg stump, but was bowled between his legs by a turning delivery. Daniel Vettori, the only player to offer any resistance, was stranded on 55.

Nice game by the Newzelander Captain.

Wat a good Cricket by him!!

With a valuable first innings lead of 74, Bangladesh began their innings in a more positive frame of mind. They were looking to score runs and had the run rate up at three an over for most of the morning - a direct contrast to their first innings where the run rate hovered around one. It was not until the 12th over that the first maiden was bowled.

Junaid Siddique became the fourth player to lose his wicket in this Cricket match to a pace bowler when he was caught behind by Aaron Redmond off Kyle Mills. And after just nine overs, the spin twins of Vettori and Jeetan Patel came on to bowl. The pair took over where they left off in the first innings, giving the ball flight and turning it sharply, as more wickets began to fall.

Seem nice Cricket.

Patel had Rajin Saleh caught in front of his stumps by bringing a ball back from well outside the off stump. In the very next over Vettori accounted for Mohammad Ashraful who got an outside edge to a ball he was trying to dispatch over mid-off and was brilliantly caught at point by Redmond. Patel then dismissed first innings hero Mehrab Hossain jnr just before the lunch break to leave the hosts struggling at 49 for 4.

This is the nice Cricket News.

Tamim Iqbal, however, continued to play the holding role, hitting five boundaries in his unbeaten 30 and much will depend on him and Mushfiqur Rahim after lunch, if Bangladesh are to have any hopes of registering their first Test win against New Zealand.
