Bangladesh & New Zealand will face each other in a Cricket Series from December 26th, 2016 to January 24th, 2017. This Bangladesh vs New Zealand 2016-17 series will comprise of 2 Tests, 3 ODIs & 3 T20s. It will be a home series for New Zealand.
Earlier, Bangladesh defeated New Zealand 7 times in their last 8 meetings since 2010. The only success for New Zealand in these 8 matches is in the 2015 World Cup Group stage match at Seddon Park, New Zealand. As Bangladesh won all those 7 matches in their home conditions, this time they are not being thought to be the favorites in the tour. As the series is going to be held in the home ground for the Kiwis, they will be more dangerous for the visitors.
However, in the last test meeting between these two teams, back in 2013, both the matches were drawn. Bangladesh has recently beat England in the test arena and managed to draw the series. But, this away series will not be that much easy for them.
Bangladesh has played in the last England series after nearly 10 months. So, they have to prove their capability in front of the New Zealand crowd by defeating the New Zealand team once again.
The home advantage will be surely present for New Zealand. So, it will be a good contest to watch for the cricket lovers.
