Bangladesh's lower-order batsman Sohag Gazi hit a maiden Test century on Saturday as the first Test against New Zealand in Chittagong headed for a high-scoring draw.

The hosts piled up 501 in reply to New Zealand’s 469 before being all out soon after lunch on the fourth day with a lead of 32 runs.

The Black Caps helped themselves to 117-1 in their second innings before heavy rain forced play to be called off at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury stadium.
