Taijul islam’s 10-wicket haul leads Bangladesh to test victory over New Zealand.

In a remarkable display of spin prowess, left-arm spinner Taijul Islam claimed 10 wickets in the match, steering Bangladesh to a commanding 150-run victory against New Zealand in the opening test in Sylhet. Facing a challenging target of 332 on a turning track, New Zealand struggled against Bangladesh’s spin-heavy attack. Despite a defiant fifty from Daryl Mitchell and a brief resistance from skipper Tim Southee, Bangladesh sealed the win on the final day, going 1-0 up in the two-test series. The victory is particularly noteworthy for a depleted Bangladesh side missing key players due to injuries, including regular captain Shakib Al Hasan. Taijul’s stellar performance earned him the player-of-the-match award, setting the stage for an eagerly awaited second test in Mirpur on Wednesday.
