Bangladesh all-rounder Sohag Gazi became the first cricketer to score a century and record a hat-trick in the same Test on Sunday but could not prevent the first Test against New Zealand ending in a draw here on Sunday. The 22-year-old off-spinner had Corey Anderson leg-before, Bradley-John Watling caught behind and Doug Bracewell caught in the slips off successive balls.
Gazi, who hit an unbeaten 101 on Saturday, joined Alok Kapali as only the second Bangladesh bowler to claim a Test hat-trick.
The hat-trick, which gave Gazi his sixth wicket in the innings, saw the Black Caps slump from 260 for four to 260 for seven in their second knock after lunch on the fifth and final day.
The tourists declared the innings closed at 287 for seven, leaving Bangladesh a target of 256 runs in a minimum of 45 overs to win the Test and take the lead in the two-match series.
The host showed no appetite to chase the stiff target and ended play on 173 for three in the 49th over, with Shakib Al Hasan unbeaten on 50 and newcomer Mominul Haque on 22.
Bangladesh is yet to win a Test against New Zealand, having lost eight and drawn one of its nine previous matches against the Black Caps.
The second Test will be played in Dhaka from Oct. 21 to 25, followed by three ODIs and one T20 match.
