BAN vs NZ Dream11 Team | Bangladesh vs New Zealand 2nd Test Match Prediction

After slipping to an innings and 52 runs defeat in the first test at Hamilton, Bangladesh looks forward to the second test at Wellington starting from Friday with enough positivity. Despite the crushing defeat by an innings and 52 runs, the 235 runs partnership between Soumya Sarkar (149) and skipper Mahmudullah (146) in the second innings was the best thing that happened to the visitors and would have deposited some confidence to the side.

The duo- Soumya Sarkar and Mahmudullah gave it back to the Kiwis in the second innings having bravely countering reverse swing, bodyline, spin into the rough, swing, etc but no support from the tail meant no stopping for the inevitable. Earlier, on a good wicket to bat on, Bangladesh managed only 234 runs in the first innings, courtesy Tamim Iqbal’s ton (126 off 128). In response, the hosts slammed a mammoth total of 715-6 in their first innings on the back of a double-century from the skipper Kane Williamson and centuries from openers Jeet Raval (132) and Tom Latham (161). In the second innings, Bangladesh was booked for 429 runs.

Ahead of the second test in Wellington, the Kiwis would be hoping to rack up another win and seal the series. The wicket is once again expected to favour batsmen more and a pile of runs from batters can be witnessed. It is the same venue where Angelo Mathews and Kusal Mendis slammed centuries on the fourth day without losing a wicket. On the other side, Bangladesh will have to put a better show with the ball. Unlike bowling anywhere in the first test, the visiting bowlers will have to keep it focused and disciplined to keep a check on Kiwi batters.
