New Zealand's Trent Boult appeals for the wicket of Bangladesh's Tamim Iqbal. Photo Getty ImagesLight rain and buffeting northerly winds played havoc with the first day of New Zealand's opening test against Bangladesh at the Basin Reserve today. In 53 minutes before lunch, Bangladesh got to 39 for one, losing opener Imrul Kayes for one, hooking Tim Southee rashly straight to long on. The last period of 11.2 overs produced 35 runs, but importantly for Bangladesh also a lost wicket. Bangladesh have lost both previous tests at the Basin, in 2001 and 2008 by an innings.
