After a spectacular performance for Bangladesh, bowler Ebadot Hossian remarked that he needed to forge patience for the success.

Ebadot was the pick of the bowling attack, he took the prized wicket of Ross Taylor, on the fifth morning to send Bangladesh on their way towards a historic victory.

The right-arm-quick returned his career-best Test figures of 6-46 in his 21 overs.  He also mentioned that Bangladesh tried to reverse swing the ball, which become very effective for the seamers.

"In the last two years, I have been working with (bowling coach) Ottis Gibson. Conditions are always flat at home. We are still learning how to bowl and reverse in away conditions. I am trying to hit the top of the stumps. I needed to be a little patient for success to come," Ebadot said. "

Ebadot also said that Bangladesh's 8-wicket victory over New Zealand will serve as inspiration for future generations of Bangladesh.

"I would like to give thanks to Allah for the Test win. Our brothers and teams didn't get win in the last 21 years in New Zealand. We set a goal this time. We raised our hand,”

"We have to beat New Zealand in their own soil. Now that we have defeated the Test champions, our next generation has to beat New Zealand," he added.
