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 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 New Zealand slump from 260 for four to 260 for seven in its second knock after lunch on the final day.
The tourists declared at 287 for seven, leaving Bangladesh a target of 256 runs in a minimum of 45 overs to win the Test. The host showed no appetite to chase the stiff target and ended on 173 for three in the 49th over. — Agencies
