Dhaka: Spinner Sohag Gazi is hoping to repeat the all-round heroics he showed in the drawn first Test against New Zealand as Bangladesh seek a rare series win against the visitors. The second and final Test starts on Monday at Mirpur.
The 22-year-old hogged the limelight in the series opener in Chittagong earlier this month. He became the first cricketer in history to score a century and claim a hat-trick in the same Test.
Gazi, who has played seven Tests in his career, returns on Monday to the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium — venue of his outstanding nine-wicket debut against West Indies last year.
“In the second match my aim will be to continue this streak,” Gazi said. “I don’t know if I will break a record again or not, but I am thinking about taking a five-for again. Actually, there is nothing different to do.”
