In one such instance, Taskin Ahmed and other Bangladesh players appealed for LBW against Ross Taylor in the 37th over of New Zealand’s innings. The umpire gave the batsman not out, and with only seconds left in the timer, inexplicably, Bangladesh captain Mominul Haque signaled for the DRS.
Replays showed the ball passing through the middle of the bat and the on-air commentators were heard laughing. What was more bizarre was that with the DRS call, Bangladesh used all the reviews they had.

Bangladesh has just reviewed it. This was his third and final review. They still need eight wickets to get New Zealand out. But they lead the Blackcaps.

Apart from the dodgy DRS calls, Bangladesh were just excellent with the ball. Abadot Hossain troubled the New Zealand batsmen, taking four wickets, while Taskin took one.
New Zealand were just 17 runs ahead of 147 for five at stumps on the fourth day.
Earlier, after bowling out New Zealand for 328 in the first innings, the visiting team made 458 runs in their first innings to take a crucial 130-run lead.
