Bangladesh created history after beating New Zealand in the first Test of the two-match series at Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui, which is their maiden win over the World Test Champions in 21 years. This was also Bangladesh’s first win in New Zealand in any format and Mushfiqur Rahim led the celebrations in the dressing room, telling others to enjoy this moment.
Bangladesh beat New Zealand by 8 wickets, which was the No. 8 ranked Test side’s first-ever victory not just Tests, in New Zealand in 32 games across all formats. Pacer Ebadot Hossain set up the famous win for the tourists as they wrapped up the Test match in the first session of Day 5. New Zealand was just 17 runs ahead and had already lost five wickets coming into the final day.
Ebadot picked 6/46 and a total of 7 wickets in the match as New Zealand crashed to 169 all out in their second innings, getting a lead of just 39 runs. Bangladesh lost just two wickets in their chase of 40 runs, leading to a historic moment in their cricketing history.

Shoriful Islam and Mehidy Hasan Miraz picked three wickets each in Kiwi’s first innings, where they had made 328 runs.

“We have to enjoy it, brothers, enjoy it,” Rahim said at the start of the video posted by the Bangladesh Cricket Board on Twitter.
In the video, the players and the coaches started singing the song, “Amra Korbo Joy” (Bangla version of the song ‘Hum Honge Kamyab’) as the jubilation surrounded the dressing room of the Bangla Tigers.
