New Zealand complete incredible win

Updated: 

New Zealand completed an improbable record-breaking win over Bangladesh in the first Test in Wellington on Monday.

Thanks largely to Kane Williamson (104 not out) and Ross Taylor (60), the Black Caps reached their target of 217 relatively comfortably at Basin Reserve.

A win had seemed unlikely, if not impossible, after Bangladesh made 595-8 in their first innings after being put in to bat.

But that score is now a record for the highest first-innings in Tests by a losing team.

Bangladesh were dismissed for 160 in their second innings and New Zealand reached their target in 39.4 overs.

Resuming at 66-3, Bangladesh made the worst possible start to day five as Shakib Al Hasan (0) chipped a catch to Williamson off Mitchell Santner (2-36).

Mominul Haque (23) was the next to go, falling to Neil Wagner (2-37), before Tim Southee dropped Mushfiqur Rahim.

Trent Boult (3-53) dropped a return chance from Sabbir Rahman, who then survived a review for caught behind.

Mushfiqur would retire hurt on 13 after being struck in the helmet by Southee in a scary incident, although the Bangladesh captain is believed to be OK.

Taskin Ahmed was dropped before being bowled by Boult, while Sabbir had to review after being given out caught behind to a delivery which hit his arm guard.

Despite Imrul Kayes (unbeaten 36) returning injured, Bangladesh's lower-order fell quickly.

Set 217 to win off 57 overs, New Zealand made relatively light work of the chase.

Jeet Raval (13) and Tom Latham (16) departed early, while Williamson raced to his 50 off 43 balls.

Taylor also made a half-century, albeit at a slower rate, as the duo sent the Black Caps on their way to a 1-0 series lead.

Bangladesh tried a desperate review on Taylor - which failed - before Mehedi Hasan Miraz took a stunning catch to remove the right-hander.

Williamson brought up a memorable ton with a boundary before hitting a single to complete the amazing win.
