Bangladesh were poised for a heavy defeat in the second Test against New Zealand after a third day in which Daniel Vettori came to the fore.

The Kiwi left-arm spinner took 6-70 and 4-77 as Bangladesh were bowled out for 182 and then reached 210-8 following on, in reply to New Zealand's 545-6.

The tourists' other slow bowler, off-spinner Paul Wiseman, had five wickets.

Javed Omar hit a half-century in Bangladesh's first innings and Khaled Mashud scored 51 in the follow-on.

Bangladesh began the day in a moderate position of 82-3 but Mohammad Ashraful fell to the second ball of the morning to set the tone.

Still on nought, he tried to loft Wiseman over the infield for four but succeeded only in giving a simple catch to Nathan Astle at mid-on.

Vettori then took over as he had Alok Kapali (13) caught at slip and trapped skipper Mashud (18) lbw.

The 25-year-old took two more wickets after lunch but Omar was removed by Wiseman after facing 151 balls for his 58 and becoming only the second Bangladeshi after Habibul Bashar to notch 1,000 Test runs.

By tea, the Tigers had slumped to 51-4 in their second innings after being asked to follow on.

Omar made just a single this time before becoming James Franklin's second victim of the match.

Nafis Iqbal and Aftab Ahmed were both bowled trying to slog the spinners across the line and Ashraful completed a pair when he was caught by Scott Styris off Vettori.

When the score reached 74-5, there looked a real danger of the match being finished then and there.

But Rajin Saleh (35) and Mushfiqur Rahman (20) showed a modium of defiance before Mashud chopped Jacob Oram onto his own stumps having lasted 87 deliveries.

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
