The New Zealand cricket team led by Tim Southee has gone to Bangladesh to play a 2-match Test series.
Earlier, a 3-match ODI series between these two teams was held in Bangladesh. New Zealand won the series 2-0. The Test series was then scheduled to begin later this month, with the 50-over World Cup in mind.
According to this, the first Test match between Bangladesh and New Zealand will start at 9 am today in Sylhet city.
Although the New Zealand team has quality batsmen like Kane Williamson, Rachin Ravindra, Conway, Henry Nicholls, Daryl Mitchell, they can add significant runs only if they can effectively deal with Bangladesh’s spin attack.
Bangladesh team is led by Najmul Hussain Shanto. Bangladesh, who have always looked strong in the region, will look to maintain their dominance. Playing the 10th Test series against New Zealand, Bangladesh have yet to win a Test series against the team. This is a great opportunity for Bangladesh to make history.
And since it is part of the World Test Championship, this match is considered important for both the teams.
