Bangladesh end Day 1 on 310 runs

Bangladesh ended Day 1 of the opening cricket Test of a two-match series against New Zealand at Sylhet International Cricket Stadium on Tuesday.

Opting to bat first, Bangladesh openers Zakir Hasan and Mahmudul Hasan Joy displayed commendable resilience against New Zealand pacers Tim Southee and Kyle Jamieson in the initial overs.

Opener Mahmudul Hasan Joy top-scored with 86 runs while a number of batters got into 20s and 30s but could not kick on from there. On a pitch which assisted some turn for the spinners, Phillips was the most successful, giving away 53 runs in 16 overs while the two specialist spinners -- Azaz Patel and Ish Sodhi -- shared three wickets, Taijul Islam (8) and Shoriful islam (13) were at the crease at stumps as poor light ended the day's play after 85 overs.
