Sports Live: Emboldened by their emphatic victory in the first Test, Bangladesh now are eyeing more glory as they set a goal to sweep the two-match series by winning the second and final game, starting tomorrow (Sunday) at Hagley Oval in Christchurch. The match starts at 4 PM (Bangladesh Standard Time) and will be aired live on Gazi TV and T Sports.

After this victory, Bangladesh now lead the series 1-0, which meant only a draw would help them win their first ever series victory against a major Test nation apart from Zimbabwe on foreign soil. Bangladesh are brimming with confidence to win the second Test also after such a groundbreaking performance in the first game in which everyone had a handy contribution. But Ebadot Hossain made him obvious after a prolonged bad form in this format. His six for 46, which was a second best figure by a Bangladeshi pacer and best figure by a Bangladeshi pacer on foreign soil, was instrumental in the eight-wicket victory.

"As a team, we definitely want to try and turn things around and send him off in a nice, positive way," team-mate Devon Conway, who struck a century in the first innings, said. "It's been a real honors to play alongside him even though it's been sort of five Test matches for me personally but just to be in and around Ross in that change-room, it is an honors.

Squad: Mominul Haque (capt), Shadman Islam, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Mushfiqur Rahim, Fazle Mahmud, Liton Das (wk), Nurul Hasan (wk), Yasir Ali, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Taijul Islam, Taskin Ahmed, Abu Jayed, Ebadot Hossain, Shoriful Islam, Khaled Ahmed, Shohidul Islam, Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Mohammad Naim.
