Broad leaves New Zealand on the ropes in Wellington

AFP, WELLINGTON

Nasir, who put on 59 for the seventh wicket with Gazi, cracked one six and two fours in his 87-ball knock before being the last man out, trapped leg-before by Herath.

The 21-year-old Mominul put on 49 for the third wicket with Jahurul to steady the innings after Bangladesh had lost two crucial wickets in the first session.

Tamim Iqbal was trapped leg-before for 10 while Mohammad Ashraful was run out for 16.

Jahurul hit just two fours in his patient 129-ball knock before being caught by wicketkeeper Dinesh Chandimal off Shaminda Eranga in the afternoon session.
