NZ vs BAN 1st Test Dream11 prediction: Best picks for New Zealand vs Bangladesh formal contest in Bay Oval
The New year in cricket is all set, to begin with, Bangladesh and New Zealand taking on each other in a two-match Test series from January 1, 2022. The two-match Test series will be part of the World Test Championship.
While the hosts are coming into this series on the back of a 1-0 defeat in the Test series in India and would look to make a fresh start, Bangladesh, also haven’t been up to the mark and recently lost the Test series against Pakistan 0-2.
Regular Kiwi skipper, Kane Williamson will miss the series due to an elbow injury and Tom Latham will lead the side in his absence.
What surprised most fans is Ajaz Patel, who had recently picked 10 wickets in an innings in India, was dropped from the side and the selectors opted for a five-pronged pace attack of Tim Southee, Trent Boult, Neil Wagner, Kyle Jamieson, and Matt Henry.
Talking about Bangladesh, all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan will be missing the series and his absence is going to hurt the team. There will be a massive responsibility on skipper Mominul Haque’s shoulder who has a lot to prove.
