New Zealand opener Will Young had luck going his way in the second Test against Bangladesh. He was twice given out by the on-field umpire but survived after successfully reviewing the decisions. The Kiwi batter was also gifted a lifeline and was then rewarded 7 runs in 1 ball.

The comedy of errors happened in the first over after lunch as the hosts accumulated 92 runs without a loss of wicket. On the final delivery of Ebadot Hossain’s over, an edge of Young’s willow took the ball towards first slip but the player from second slip tried completing the catch, resulting in another chance going down. Young and Tim Latham took three runs as the delivery went to fine-leg.

The fielder made a throw to the keeper’s end, and Nurul Hasan without checking it, threw the ball at the bowler’s end where it dodged every Bangladesh fielder. Ebadot, then, had to give a chase as the ball crossed the boundary rope.
