NZ vs BAN Cricket Betting Tips: New Zealand and Bangladesh will clash against each other in a two-match Test series, starting January 1. New Zealand are the reigning World Test champions, and are the favorites to whitewash the Asian side. The Kiwis are coming on the back of 1-0 loss to India in a two match Test series. As for Bangladesh, they were whitewashed 2-0 by Pakistan at home, which was their first series of the WTC 2021-23 cycle.
New Zealand will be without their captain, Kane Williamson for the series against Bangladesh. Instead, they will be led by opener, Tom Latham who also captained the side in the second Test against India. After being just the third bowler to pick 10 wickets in a single innings, Ajaz Patel has been rested for this series. Barring them, the hosts are fielding a full strength squad.
Bangladesh are fielding a pretty inexperienced side for the series against New Zealand. Mominul Haque is appointed the skipper for the Tigers, with Mushfiqur Rahim being the most experienced player. Mustafizur Rahman and Shakib Al Hasan are notable absentees for the visitors.

New Zealand surely have the better and stronger side on paper. With the quality of bowling lineup they have in their armory, it will be very difficult for the visitors to get anything out of the game. Ross Taylor has not been in the best of form off-late, after a disappointing series in India. He will look to find back his form in the home series against the Tigers.

The pitch at Mount Maunganui offers assistance to the seam bowlers, especially during the earlier part of the day. However, once batters are able to settle into their grooves, they can score runs freely. The shorter boundaries on offer also works in favor of the batter. Overall, the pitch is expected to remain good for batting throughout the course of five days. In the New Zealand vs India Today Match Prediction, there is a prediction of rainfall later on in the Test match.
The Test match between New Zealand and Bangladesh will be played during peak summer months. The Summer period in New Zealand lasts from December to February, where temperatures are expected to remain high. However, there is a 40% chance of shower on Day 4 and 60% on Day 5 of the Test. The first three days of the match are expected to be played under clear skies, with temperatures touching above 20.
