CHITTAGONG, Bangladesh, Apr 19 (Reuters) Australia's Jason Gillespie became the highest run-scoring nightwatchman today when he eased past the previous record of 105 on the fourth morning of the second test against Bangladesh.

Resuming on 102, Gillespie drove a delivery off spinner Abdur Razzak to the long off boundary to overhaul the mark set by compatriot Tony Mann in December 1977 against India.

Pakistan nightwatchman Nasimul Ghani scored 101 against England at Lord's in 1962.
