The NZ vs BAN Halaplay Match Preview

The second test match of the 3-game series will be taking place as New Zealand hosts Bangladesh on Thursday. The hosts won the first game comprehensively, with an innings and 56 runs.

New Zealand showcased an utterly dominant display of cricketing prowess, as they easily swept aside their opposition. The bowlers did their job by getting all ten wickets and suffocating Bangladesh to a 234 runs stand. When they got out to bat, it was apparent, that the class difference between the two sides is clear as day.

Latham and Raval scored 254 runs for the opening partnership and captain Kane Williamson came in to put the icing on the cake by being as silky smooth he is. The double century helped the Kiwis score 715 runs, and that is a mammoth of a total to post against the side who you easily bowled out. They still would have the psychological advantage in this game and it will be interesting to see if complacency comes in.

Meanwhile, Bangladesh would still be hurt and recouping themselves after getting thoroughly embarrassed by an elite side. They have been on the brink of being the team who wants to be considered as a real threat in the cricketing world, but always have these blemishes in their record.

The roster they have is filled with talented youngsters, and the management shouldn’t rush things or else the process of nurturing will be hampered. If there is one thing the world know about Bangladesh, it is the fact that they don’t back down from a fight, and will be raring to exact some revenge.
