New Zealand in sight of victory

October 28, 2004 17:15 IST

Left-arm spinner Daniel Vettori completed his second 10-wicket haul in Test cricket on Thursday to put New Zealand in sight of victory over Bangladesh in the second Test at Chittagong.

At the close of the third day, Bangladesh were 210 for eight in their second innings, still needing 153 runs to make New Zealand bat again.

The home side were asked to follow on after they were dismissed for 182 in their first innings in reply to New Zealand's 545 for six declared.

Vettori, who took eight wickets in New Zealand's first Test victory, captured six for 70 in the first innings and has four for 77 so far in the second.

He was ably assisted by off spinner Paul Wiseman, making one of his rare appearances for New Zealand, who has figures of three for 68 and two for 77.

Opener Javed Omar, who scored 58 from 151 balls in the first innings, and Khaled Mashud, with 51 from 87 balls in the second including nine boundaries, were the only batsman to offer any extended resistance to the Kiwi spinners.

New Zealand won the first Test by an innings and 99 runs.
