New Zealand is all set to play Bangladesh in the 2nd Test that will take place on the 9th of January 2022, at the Hagley Oval, Christchurch.
New Zealand vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Preview
After having won the first test, in what was a historic outcome, Bangladesh will be firing on all cylinders as they look to repeat their stunning victory yet again. The Kiwis will look to reverse the tide in their favor in a bid to stay alive in the ongoing Test series.
Choosing to bowl in the first innings of the first Test, the Bangladeshi bowlers halted a rather resolute New Zealand charge at 328, the highlight moments being the magnificent knock of Devon Conway (122). Mehidy Hasan and Shoriful Isman picked 3 wickets each, while skipper Mominul hunted a couple of scalps.
The response from Bangladesh was resounding, with the team putting up a solid stand of 458 runs, with the help of half-centuries from Mahmudul Hasan Joy (78), Nazmul Shanto (64), Mominul Haque (88), and Liton Das (86).
New Zealand started the second innings with a nice little boost and was 136 for 2 at one stage. However, Ebadot Hossain wreaked havoc on the batting lineup, bringing the score from 136 for 2 to 169 all out. In the process, the speedster grabbed 6 wickets to nail down the Kiwis.
Bangladesh was given a target of 40 runs, which they chased down quite comfortably for the loss of just a couple of wickets.

New Zealand vs Bangladesh 2nd Test – Pitch Report
The surface at Christchurch provides decent help to the bowlers and is predicted to behave similarly in this match as well. The initial swing for the pacers towards the early half can be seen once again here. The team batting first must be ready to spend some quality time on the field before going for the big shots. By our estimate, anything above 250-260 is a good first innings score.

New Zealand vs Bangladesh 2nd Test – Must-Have Picks for Dream11
Devon Conway – With a stunning 122 in the first innings, Devon has shown us all that he can be trusted to put on a pile of runs, especially with the pride of his country at stake. He will be a good addition to your Dream11 fantasy lineup.
Mominul Haque – With 88 runs and 2 wickets in the first match, Mominul is a great pick if you are looking for a player who can play the all-rounder role and get you a heap of points.
Ebadot Hossain – The player who tore through the Kiwi batting lineup, Ebadot was judged the man of the match and we expect him to build on that 6 wicket haul in the upcoming match.
Ross Taylor – You may be surprised by this pick, but Ross Taylor was one of the few Kiwi players who actually put some runs on the board for the team in both innings. With 31 in the first innings and 40 in the second innings, Taylor brings experience to the lineup, and with the reputation of his country on the line, we expect Ross to put on a shift.
