Captain Stephen Fleming notched his second Test double-century as New Zealand piled on the runs on day two of the second Test against Bangladesh.

Javed Omar carried the hosts to 82-3 in reply, with an unbeaten 44 after Daniel Vettori took two wickets.

Fleming, 137 overnight, made 202 as the Kiwis reached 545-6 before declaring at tea. Hamish Marshall made a useful 69.

Jacob Oram (38) and Brendon McCullum (17) were New Zealand's unbeaten batsmen when the declaration came.

Marshall was out towards the end of the second session when he got a leading edge to a delivery from left-arm spinner Enamul Haque Jr.

Fleming became only the third New Zealand batsman to score two double centuries in Tests after Glenn Turner and Matthew Sinclair.

He hit 21 fours and one six before he failed to keep a drive down and was caught at cover by off spinner Rajin Saleh.

Bangladesh's lone dismissal before lunch was Nathan Astle who was trapped lbw for 69 by Mohammad Rafique.

Rafique bowled a massive 55 overs for figures of 3-130, while Enamul shouldered a 42-over burden.

And New Zealand could barely wait to introduce their own spinners when the hosts took strike.

Vettori came on in the ninth over and soon had Nafis Iqbal caught for 13, Aftab Ahmed following lbw for 20.

Saleh took aim for stumps and almost got their, facing 39 balls and making just two before he prodded Wiseman to silly point in the final over of the day.

Bangladesh: Javed Omar, Nafis Iqbal, Mohammad Ashraful, Rajin Saleh, Alok Kapali, Khaled Mashud (Capt, Wkt), Manjural Islam Rana, Tapash Baisya, Enamul Haque jnr, Mohammad Rafique, Aftab Ahmed.

New Zealand: M H Richardson, M S Sinclair, S P Fleming (Capt), S B Styris, N J Astle, J D P Oram, B B McCullum (Wkt), D L Vettori, J E C Franklin, P J Wiseman, H J H Marshall.

Umpires: M R Benson and D J Harper
