Bangladesh created history and posted their first-ever Test win against New Zealand on 5th January 2022. The Kiwis had started Day 5 on the backfoot, with their scorecard reading 147/5, and were leading Bangladesh by 17 runs in the second innings.

And, the Black Caps lost their last 5 wickets for the addition of just 22 runs. Ross Taylor was cleaned up by Ebadot Hossain in the second over of the day and departed for 40. Hossain then picked up his 6th wicket of the innings when he dismissed Kyle Jamieson.

To a ball that pitched on middle and leg, the right-hander went for the flick, and Shoriful Islam, who was stationed at mid-wicket threw himself to his right to pull off a stunner.

Taskin Ahmed removed Rachin Ravindra for 16, as the left-hander nicked the ball to the keeper. Tim Southee was then cleaned up by Taskin Ahmed for a duck. New Zealand lost their final wicket courtesy some brilliance on the field by Taijul Islam.

To a flighted delivery from Mehidy Hasan, Boult went for the hoick over mid-wicket, and Taijul Islam who was positioned at the deep mid-wicket fence took a marvelous catch, as the hosts were bowled out for 169.

Bangladesh completes the formalities to create history

Bangladesh were set a paltry target of 40 and completed the formalities with 8 wickets intact. The visitors lost their first wicket with just 3 runs on the board, as Shadman Islam nicked Tim Southee to the wicketkeeper.

Kyle Jamieson then removed Najmul Hossain Shanto. The left-hander prodded at a good length delivery from Jamieson, the ball took the outside edge, and Ross Taylor who was stationed in the slip cordon took a sharp catch.

And then, came the winning moment. With the visitors just 2 runs away, Mushfiqur Rahim slammed Jamieson for a boundary as the Bangladeshi Tigers posted their first-ever Test win against New Zealand.
