Stumps on Day 3:

New Zealand were bowled all out for 171 (Vettori 55*, Shakib Al Hasan 7/36)

Bangladesh's are 8/184 at the close of day 3 (Shakib Al Hasan 71, Vettori 4/39)

The Kiwi's are really on the back foot. They should dismiss the remain Bangladeshi batting order relatively quickly on Day 4, but NZ's batting lineup is pretty inexperienced on the international stage, especially under pressure as they will be once their 2nd innings begins.

If Bangladesh keep the pressure up, then an upset is definitely on the cards.
