Trent Boult claimed his ninth five-wicket haul as his 5/43 blew away Bangladesh for 126 in the first innings of the second Test match against New Zealand at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch. New Zealand have taken a huge lead of 395 runs at stumps on Day 2. It remains to be seen whether New Zealand enforce the follow-on or will they give Ross Taylor a chance to bat one last time in Test cricket on Day 3 morning. In reply to New Zealand's mammoth 521/6 declared, the visiting batters never looked in control as they were reduced to 27/5 at one stage. Thereafter Nurul Hasan and Yasir Ali stitched together 60 runs for the sixth wicket. The dismissal of Nurul once again triggered the collapse as Bangladesh were bowled out in 41.2 overs. Tim Southee and Kyle Jamieson took three and two wickets respectively. Earlier, Devon Conway completed his hundred on the first ball of the day while Tom Latham brought up his double ton as New Zealand added 172 runs before declaring. Bangladesh have already created a slice of history by stunning New Zealand in the first Test at Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui. New Zealand have lost just one match in their last eight Tests here. get here Day 2 highlights of NZ vs BAN.

10:22 AM: Yasir Ali fights
Yasir Ali (39) and Mehidy Hasan Miraz (5) are trying to put up a partnership. Yasir has even taken a nasty blow on his helmet but is fine. Bangladesh still have to face another 15 overs and that's going to be quite a challenge.

8:10 AM IST: NZ pile more
After finishing Day 1 at 349/1, Tom Latham completed his double century while Devin Conway scored his second consecutive ton in this series as New Zealand added 172 more runs before declaring. Latham and Conway were dismissed for 252 and 109 respectively. Tom Blundell scored 57 down the order.
Bangladesh bowlers, who had scripted a memorable in the first Test at Bay Oval, were sent on a leather hunt on Day 1 of the second New Zealand vs Bangladesh Test in Christchurch on Sunday. New Zealand lost the toss and were asked to bat first on a lively Hagley Oval wicket. Home team skipper Tom Latham and his top order responded beautifully.
Tom Latham, unbeaten on 186, stitched two major partnerships as New Zealand kept piling the runs against a Bangladesh attack that looked docile at times and the fielding leaky.
Putting on 148 for the first wicket with Will Young (54), Tom Latham was accompanied by Devon Conway, who was on run shy of his third Test century when stumps were drawn. Latham's 12th Test hundred, studded with 28 boundaries, came off a 278-ball stay in the middle.
Bangladesh were bereft of ideas with the ball, and not backed up in the field, ruing missed opportunities. Litton Das dropped Young after the lunch break, and the batting pair moved to the 100-run stand, the first opening partnership of three figures in the first innings of a Test in New Zealand since 2012.
Bangladesh were also not lucky with the DRS on Sunday. Ebadot Hossain, who was Bangladesh’s man of the match in the first Test for his six wickets in the New Zealand second innings, came into the attack in the ninth over on Sunday and had Tom Latham out lbw with his second and fifth deliveries. In both cases the on-field umpire upheld Ebadot’s appeal and Latham had those decisions reviewed and overturned.
