PV Sports Desk : Despite a bold effort of Liton Das who struck a counterattacking century, Bangladesh failed to avoid an innings defeat in the second and final Test at Hagley Oval in Christchurch today.

A New Zealand victory was imminent when Bangladesh were bowled out for 126 in the first innings, responding to the hosts mammoth 521-6 declared.

Liton’s second Test century, a 114 ball-102, that included 14 fours and one six gave Bangladesh a glimmer of hope to avoid the 45th innings defeat in 128 test.
