Taylor on the move

Those two dropped catches might have just broken the back of Bangladesh’s attack. Hossain and Jayed started to offer width as Taylor crunched a few cuts to the boundary hoardings. Costly misses.


Drama and action!!!

Wow! What a start to the day. In the 15th over, the fielder at short cover dropped a sitter and in the same over, Islam at second slip fluffed a relativity easy chance. Jayed was the unlucky bowler and Taylor the lucky batsman on both occasions. Jayed also extracted seam movement and bounce to get one to whistle past the outside edge of Taylor and induced an inside edge as well.

Drama and action. As Bill Lawry would say, “It is all happening!”

Anyway, on a green seamer, New Zealand wouldn’t have picked a spinner.

Build Up:

After a couple of days were washed out, Day 3 had its fair share of thrills and spills. On a day when 12 wickets fell, Bangladesh’s pacers – Hossain and Jayed – shone brightly at the fag end of the final session by extracting appreciable seam movement. Jayed was the bowler who reaped the rewards by taking the wickets of the openers.

The pacers certainly have given a window of opportunity for the home side to script a comeback after their batsmen let them down. On a track with a healthy dose of grass covering, most of Bangladesh’s batsmen succumbed to the short ball tactics of Neil Wagner. Tamim Iqbal, who cracked a fine hand of 74, also couldn’t resist taking on the short ball and fell to Wagner. The visitors were eventually bundled out for 211.

Can the tourists continue to make incisions? We will have all the action in a while.
