Bangladesh desperate to repeat 2017 Wellington Test
CRICDOT DESK : Bangladesh has never won a bilateral series in New Zealand, but the test situation is most tragic as it has done nine tests and lost a lot of everything, including the defeat of five innings.
However, there was a spark in the 2017 Wellington test. Bangladesh declared an inning with 595 runs because it lost eight wickets in the first inning. Outside the subcontinent, this is still the Tigers’ highest team rating.
Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim made a 359-run pair, which is still a record pair. Bangladesh took the lead in this game as well.
But with 2 innings. Musfiker, who played 159 in one inning, was injured in two innings and left the field. Opener Imrul Kayes also left the field due to an injury. Bangladesh’s two innings ended in 4,444 in 160 runs due to a hitting disaster. The guest fought for a draw, but lost on the final day with seven wickets.

Khaled Mahmud Sujon, the team leader for this tour, still illuminates the lamp of hope many years after the battle. In a Saturday video message, he said they wanted to overtake Wellington.
“I’ve done 10 tests in New Zealand before, but the results aren’t very good. The only exception is the Wellington Test 2016 (2017). I lost this test at tea time on the last day. But if I was inspired by this test and could do 595 jobs with 8 wickets, Inning declared that he wanted to do something better this time, “Sujon said. The first test of the
series will take place on New Year’s Day in Tauranga’s twin town, Mount Maunganui.
