New Zealand pacer Trent Boult on Monday reached the milestone of 300 Test wickets. The left-arm seamer achieved the feat on Day 2 of the ongoing second Test against Bangladesh at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch. Boult is the fourth cricketer from New Zealand to achieve the milestone of 300 Test wickets and he brought up the landmark in his 75th Test. Earlier, Sir Richard Hadlee, Daniel Vettori, and Tim Southee had registered 300 Test wickets.

On Day 2 of the ongoing Test, Boult scalped the wickets of Shadman Islam, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Liton Das, and Mehidy Hasan.

The left-arm seamer dismissed Mehidy to bring up his 300th wicket in Test cricket.

Earlier, resuming Day 2 at 349/1, Devon Conway brought up his century but after a knock of 109, he was sent back to the pavilion via a run-out. Wickets kept falling, but skipper Tom Latham remained firm at one end.

Latham went on to play a remarkable knock of 252 runs off just 373 balls with the help of 34 fours and 2 sixes.

Promoted

Wicketkeeper-batter Tom Blundell also chipped in with an unbeaten knock of 57 as New Zealand finally declared their innings at 521/6.

Boult went on to complete a ninth five-wicket haul in Tests as Bangladesh were bowled out for 126 in their first innings.
