All the players of Bangladesh team are set to seal their first-ever Test series victory over New Zealand as the hosts take on the visitors in the second and final game at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka.
The match will kick off at 9.30 am, Wednesday, and will be aired on T Sports and Rabbitholebd Sports, a YouTube channel.
The Tigers have already led the series by 1-0 following their 150-run victory in the first Test. As a result, they just need a minimum draw to seal the series, however, they will enter the ground only for victory.
Bangladesh made a good start to their third cycle of the World Test Championship (WTC) with a win in their first game. In the last two cycles, they had just one win and never could start with a victory. Now this is their chance to put them in an advantageous position.
Bangladesh's target is to win the WTC matches at home and to struggle away. A series victory against New Zealand could be a huge boost
Bangladesh played 18 Test matches and won just 2, lost 13 and drew 3. Barring West Indies and Zimbabwe, New Zealand are the only team, against which Bangladesh now have more than one Test victory.
