Bangladesh to face ‘Bouncy wicket’ at Christchurch
CRICDOT DESK :New Zealand’s wicket means covered with grass. Where the pacers will leave the condition of the batsmen humiliated by the speed storm and all the terrible bounces. However, this was not the case at Mount Manganui. The Kiwis have not played on such a low grass wicket for a long time. Christchurch is therefore being returned to the grass wicket. The second Test will be played on that wicket. There is a tough challenge waiting for the unaccustomed Tiger batsmen on such wickets.
New Zealand has built the best pace attack in the world with four pacers. The four were handled by Tiger batsmen at Mount Manganui. But at Hagley Oval’s pace paradise, the believers will see how the Bolt-Saudis will handle it. “We know this field very well,” veteran Kiwi batsman Ross Taylor told reporters on Friday. I think there will be bounce and the ball will go to the keeper well all the time. There will be a lot of grass here. ‘
Saying goodbye to Test cricket, Ross Taylor added: “I think we’re still trying to figure out how to play Mount Manganui. But we have a lot of ideas about wickets here. Water will come to the tongues of the bowlers when they see the wicket. However, we have to show more dedication to the batsmen than in the last Test. However, our batsmen and bowlers are very accustomed to this condition. We have to win, not only to save the series, but also to win the Test championship points.
