Southee takes five

Tim Southee captured his sixth five-wicket haul in test cricket as New Zealand bowled Bangladesh out for 289 in the final five minutes of the first day of the second match at Hagley Oval in Christchurch on Friday.

Southee finished with figures of 5-94, while Boult backed up his new ball partner with 4-87.

Southee had Kamrul Islam trapped in front for two in the 85th over, shortly after the game had been delayed for about 10 minutes when Rubel Hossain received medical treatment after being hit on the elbow by Trent Boult.

Souyma Sarkar, promoted to open in a patchwork Bangladesh side who were missing batsmen Imrul Kayes and Mominul Haque and captain Mushfiqur Rahim due to injury, top scored with 86 after the visitors had been asked to bat by Kane Williamson.
