Series: Bangladesh tour of New Zealand, 2019
Bangladesh, in Napier, were everything a subcontinent team historically is in their first outing of an overseas tour. They were tentative with their game plans, were found wanting against Lockie Ferguson’s pace and Trent Boult’s movement on a “slow” deck – as Martin Guptill put it in his post-match presser – and need to make quick amends in this must-win second of the three ODIs in Christchurch.
The series can be a good barometer for the visitors’ bowling unit too, who can assess their performance against New Zealand’s top order, which India had on the mat. Bangladesh are almost never underdogs nowadays, but their coach Steve Rhodes insists that they are that on this tour of New Zealand, given the pressure of a winless record in the country on four previous tours, that has been made worse by the injury-spurred absence of Shakib Al Hasan.
New Zealand proved far too good for Bangladesh in the first ODI game of the three-match series and it could be a similar tale in the second match if the Tigers do not learn from their mistakes with early wickets preventing them from building a genuine score to defend. The Blackcaps looked ominous and were able to easily chase down the total on a slow track but faster conditions here could really suit the hosts and they can seal the series with another win here.
