Bangladesh tour of New Zealand 2019 | BAN vs NZ Dream11 2nd Test Match Prediction

Bangladesh vs New Zealand 2nd Test Match Preview | Who Will Win Today Match

Basin Reserve, Wellington, March 08-March 12, at 03:30 AM IST

After an emphatic show at the Seddon Park in Hamilton, New Zealand will march into the second Test with loads of confidence by their side and an already distorted Bangladesh will look for some miracle after they were completely baffled in the first Test.

Skipper Kane at his belligerent best

After dismissing Bangladesh for a score of 234 runs in the first innings courtest Neil Wagner’s 5-fer and Tim Southee’s triple strikes, New Zealand batted with precision and went on to make their highest ever total in Test cricket i.e. 715 runs for the loss of 6 wickets.

Openers Jeet Raval and Tom Latham scored brilliant tons but the man of the moment was the skipper himself Kane Williamson who carried his bat throughout the innings and mastered his second double century i.e. 200 runs from 257 deliveries. His knock helped his side to reach a mammoth score in the first innings plus on personal grounds, he moved to the second rank in ICC Test batsmen rankings with 900+ rating points.

Bangladesh showed some resilience in the second innings but it was too late

A first innings lead of 481 runs was always going to take a lot from the Bangladesh batting unit but the visitors were in no mood to give up easily. Skipper Mahmudullah Riyad and Soumya Sarkar were not giving up the fight as the duo stitched a brilliant 235 runs stand for the fifth wicket. In the process, Soumya Sarkar got 149 to his name, while the skipper scored a tempting 146.

Though their effort went in vain as Bangladesh fell 52 runs short of the lead and eventually, the Blackcaps registered a comfortable victory by an innings and 52 runs.

  • The hots will rely heavily on their skipper Kane Williamson who made it big in the first game, whereas Jeet Raval, Tom Latham and Ross Taylor can be the other ardent picks.
  • The all-round department will see the likes of Colin de Grandhomme and Bangladesh skipper Mahmudullah who slammed a ton in the second innings of last game.
