Bangladesh continues its unbalanced tour of New Zealand and was not able to come near to a win. New Zealand has won both the Test Matches so far but they were just better in the 2nd Test than compared with the 1st. It’s really hard to say that Bangladesh has not made any sort of improvements in their game. But the black caps have given their all and not let up a single time.
All the players of New Zealand have been doing their deeds and home side has barely been tested by Bangladesh. The third test between New Zealand and Bangladesh will be played in Hagley Oval, Christchurch and it is expected that thing will turn up against Bangladeshis.
New Zealand captain Kane Williamson suffered a shoulder injury in the 2nd test and was taken to the hospital. Playing without Kane will not make any difference to Kiwis. Will young is expected to make his debut in place of Kane in the third test match. Ross Taylor astonishing knock of 200 in just 212 balls helped Kiwi’s win another match having only batted once in the rain-affected game. The third game is even expected to be played under similar weather conditions but the Kiwis can still manage to show their positive side against Bangladesh bowlers.
