Sohag Gazi ripped through New Zealand's middle order to complete a six-wicket haul and help put Bangladesh within 218 runs of winning the first Test in Chittagong.
An early 74-run stand from Kane Williamson kept the match drifting steadily towards a draw but, after Gazi dismissed both the Yorkshire batsman and Peter Fulton before lunch, he returned to the crease to wreak havoc.
Brendon McCullum, who would eventually declare on 287 for seven, was first to go before Corey Anderson, BJ Watling and Doug Bracewell fell to successive balls in the 85th over.
Tamim Iqbal and Anamul Haque then contributed 38 runs for Bangladesh before tea at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium.
Gazi, who took a late wicket on Saturday, joins team-mate Shakib Al Hasan on the list of players who have both scored a century and taken five wickets in an innings in the same Test match.
The tourists started slowly on day five with Fulton adding 15 more runs to the 44 he scored on Saturday before departing lbw to Gazi.
Williamson cut to the boundary to reach his half-century off Abdur Razzak's bowling but soon fell to a freakish catch from Haque - the ball had lodged between his legs - for 74 when attempting a pull from Gazi's short ball.
On the resumption McCullum was cleaned out by Gazi for 22 but New Zealand remained somewhat optimistic given Ross Taylor was closing in on his half-century.
Anderson made no contact with the first ball of the 85th over, nor the second, which caught him plumb in front for eight runs and Watling was out for a duck off the next ball.
He was taken aback by the bounce and edged to Mushfiqur Rahim, leaving Bracewell to face the hat-trick ball. The Delhi Daredevils batsman promptly prodded Gazi's beautiful arm ball high in the air to Nasir Hossain.
Taylor would reach his unheralded fifty with a single off Razzak in the next over and after Ish Sodhi reached 22 runs off 12 balls, including two sixes, McCullum declared.
Iqbal (20) and Haque (17) were unbeaten at the break with the former finding the boundary four times.
