The hosts have ticked all the right boxes so far in this series winning 2 consecutive Tests at Hamilton and Wellington. Neil Wagner starred for the BlackCaps as he picked 9 wickets in the match. His short-theory got the better of the visitors even after they faced his short balls at Hamilton. The pitch at Wellington offered an awkward bounce at a bit fuller length, which the left-hand bowler used to his benefit. Trent Boult complimented him well with 3 wickets in the 1st innings and 4 in the second.
Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor built a crucial partnership for the 3rd wicket after they were 8-2, together adding 172 runs. Taylor scored 200 runs, followed by Henry Nicholls’ 107 runs at number 5. While skipper Kane Williamson, who scored a double hundred in the 1st Test and a fifty in the second, suffered an injury on day 3 of the 2nd Test. His fitness to play the 3rd Test is yet to be confirmed and if he doesn’t recover, Will Young would be replacing him.
Wicket-keeper batsman BJ Watling suffered a hamstring injury during the 2nd Test and will be replaced by Tom Blundell. The pitch at Christchurch would offer pace and bounce for the seamers and also a lot of swing. New Zealand bowlers have capitalised on swing and bounce in last 2 tests and will continue to dominate Bangladesh batsmen in the last test match.
Apart from Tamim Iqbal’s consistency at the top in last 2 Tests, there haven’t been many positives for Bangladesh. Abu Jayed had swung the ball a little in the 1st innings as he finishes 3 for 94. While Ebadat Hossain and Mustafizur Rahman bowled at economies of above 5 r.p.o.
Bangladesh batting failed in both innings as they were all-out for 211 and 209 runs in 1st and 2nd innings respectively. Batsmen are yet to figure out how to face Neil Wagner and have misjudged, mistimed their strokes against his tried and tested short-ball theory.
Bangladesh will be facing a strong New Zealand bowling attack at Christchurch. Unless they up the ante with their batting, and the bowlers pick more wickets, they are eyeing a complete whitewash.
Our Prediction for New Zealand vs Bangladesh, 1st Test match
New Zealand will win this match
New Zealand have dominated the visitors in all the departments. With the kind of bowling form, Wagner, and Boult are currently in, they are likely to cause trouble for the Bangladesh batsmen at Christchurch. Whereas, Bangladesh, who have lost both tests by an innings, haven’t dismissed the hosts all-out even once. From a cricket betting logic, New Zealand will start as favourites to win the final test match.
