The 22-year-old anchored the innings to notch up his maiden Test century as the hosts, replying to New Zealand's 469, cruised to 380-7 by stumps at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury stadium.

Skipper Mushfiqur Rahim (67) added 92 for the fifth wicket with Mominul to lift Bangladesh to 301-4, before both batsmen fell in the space of six deliveries after tea.
