Former captain Mashrafe bin Mortaza and T20 captain Mahmudullah Riyad have described the first Test victory of the two-match series against defending World Test Championship champions New Zealand as "extraordinary, unbelievable and historic".

Bangladesh beat New Zealand by 8 wickets in their own den of Mount Manganui Test. The Tigers have shown their dominance in the entire Test. Mashrafe Mortaza and Mahmudullah Riyad congratulated team Bangladesh following their historic victory through social media.

Mashrafe wrote, "Incredible victory, new history, new dreams. Congratulations to the whole team, congratulations Mominul. Special congratulations to Ebadot. Life is better if you win Test cricket. Bangladesh."

Mahmudullah wrote, "Incredible win, congratulations Mominul & Co."

After the match, skipper Mominul said, "It was a team work, everyone was keen to win this match. Everyone put in their support in all departments. We won because of our bowlers, they bowled in the right areas and tried to follow the process as well. We know when the sun's out in New Zealand, the wickets spin and we try to utilise these things."

"Ebadot was unbelievable. Outstanding effort. We didn't play well the last couple of times in the Test matches here, so it was very important to put our legacy to the next level in the Test matches. Today I want to forget this and we have to look forward to the Christchurch match as well, Mominul concluded."
