New Zealand will take on Bangladesh in the second Test of the series. It’s a must-win game for New Zealand to level the series. They were outplayed by the Tigers in the first Test and crumbled in the second innings. The hosts need to show more character in their batting if they want to win the Test.

Bangladesh became the first side to beat New Zealand in New Zealand after 2017. It’s a huge achievement for them as they claimed an 8-wicket win in the series opener. Ebadot Hussain was the game-changer for them who took 6 wickets in the second innings. They were professional right throughout the Test and showed that they are ready to take the challenge again in the 2nd Test.
