Bangladesh and New Zealand faced off in the second Test at Mirpur’s Shere Bangla Stadium, with a thrilling start. However, a rare obstructing-the-field dismissal by Mushfiqur Rahim added a unique twist to the match, before New Zealand found themselves in a challenging position. Bangladesh struggled with bat, slumping to 47/4 within 15 overs. However, Mushfiqur Rahim and Shahadat Hossain managed to stabilize the innings until the 41st over. The turning point came when Rahim, defending a Kyle Jamieson delivery, instinctively extended his right hand to push the ball away, despite it posing no threat to the stumps.
