NZ vs BAN Dream11 Prediction: New Zealand is all set to host Bangladesh for a two-match Test series and the opening Test match will be played at the Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui scheduled to begin from 1 January, 2022 (Saturday). Both these teams are coming into this game after not doing well in their last Test assignments. After winning the inaugural World Test Championship title, New Zealand ended up losing a two-match Test series in India by 0-1 margin but the Kiwis also drew the first Test match in Kanpur. On the other hand, Bangladesh are very much low on confidence having lost two Test matches convincingly at home against Pakistan recently and moreover, their senior all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has also pulled out of this Kiwi tour. However, it will now be really important for both these teams to be at the top of their game in this first Test match.
