A maiden double-century from Shakib Al Hasan and 159 stately runs from Mushfiqur Rahim drove New Zealand into the ground on the second day in Wellington.

Along the way, they recorded the highest partnership for Bangladesh in Test cricket - 359 - their second highest total away from home - 542 for 7 - and endless smiles on the faces of fans back home staying up through the night.

Shakib's 217, at a remarkable strike rate of 78, was the highest individual score by a Bangladesh batsman in Test cricket, while Mushfiqur only just missed out on batting through the entire day.
