BAN vs NZ Dream11 Team | New Zealand vs Bangladesh 3rd Test Match Preview & Prediction | Fantasy Team, Team News

It’s easy to see that thing could be better for Bangladesh Cricket Team on their tour down south. Bangladesh, who are in New Zealand, have lost all the matches they have played on their tour so far. The Asians were first beaten comprehensively in the ODI series by 3-0 and now they have lost the Test Match series as well, by losing the first matches. The third and last Test Match will start tomorrow in Christchurch.

The Preview

Bangladesh came to New Zealand in search of their first ever win in the country and they did come close once. However, over the entirety of the series, they have been shown how strong New Zealand are on their home turf.  If the humiliation of the ODI series was not enough, the visitors have been exposed even more in the Test matches. It is often said that the real strength or weakness of a team is highlighted in the longest format of cricket, which is Test Cricket. It certainly has been the case in Bangladesh’s tour of New Zealand as they have looked toothless in the Test matches.

The matches have been so one-sided that New Zealand haven’t even needed playing a second inning in any of them. Both the test matches were won by playing just one inning by the home team and the visitors could not equal their one inning in their two.

Understandably, New Zealand will experiment with their team for the third test match as it has been too easy for them so far. With the series already in the bag, the hosts have a good opportunity to give a chance to players who have not featured much and see what they are all about.
