New Zealand did well in the recently concluded World Cup 2023, winning five of nine games and advancing to the Semi-Finals. They secured an 8-wicket victory over Bangladesh in the league stage. However, facing different challenges, the team now sees Tim Southee leading as captain, with the inclusion of Kyle Jamieson, Tom Blundell, Henry Nicholls, and Neil Wagner for the upcoming 2-match Test series. Bangladesh, meanwhile, will be without regular captain Shakib, who is injured, forcing Shanto to take over as captain.
