Outgoing Team India captain MS Dhoni has conceded that he won't miss being part of press conferences, which, he felt, were too many. He said that he always believed in limiting the exposure of captains to just post match pressers, and that game plans shouldn't be discussed during press meets. He also added that it is all the more difficult when the players are abroad, for it is hard to explain to the authorities that it is a waste of time and talent. He concluded by saying that although foolish, the post match conferences were where the captain could express himself.
Latham scores century in NZ's response to mammoth Bangladesh total
Kiwi batsman Tom Latham scored his sixth century, easing NZ to 292-3 in response to Bangladesh's second highest total in Test cricket, 595. Along with Latham's 119, Henry Nicholls was unbeaten on 35. The Bangladesh team declared their first innings on 595-8, having compiled the massive score owing to Shakib Al Hasan's double century and Mushfiqur Rahim's 150. Sabbir Rahman also chipped in with a half century.
