Match preview

For Bangladesh, coming to the winning track is quite essential, as they were being whitewashed by the Kiwis in the One Day International series.

The pathetic form of Bangladesh batting lineup is the major concern for the visitors. The bowling department seems well settled under the leadership of skipper Mashrafe Mortaza.

On the other hand, New Zealand is a well-settled side, and their morale has reached a whole new level, after defeating Bangladesh in all the one-day International matches. Kane Williamson is quite a happy man, as he himself and the team have been delivering some quality cricket for the past couple of months.
