Mushfiq urges to stay patient to score runs in New Zealand
The Bangladesh team does not have much experience in the past in New Zealand’s bouncy wickets. The Tigers have not won a Test match against the Kiwis in 33 ODIs and T20s. Bangladesh could not draw in New Zealand in the elite format of Tests.
Bangladesh will play two Test matches at Mount Manganui and Christchurch at the beginning of the new year. Mushfiqur Rahim, an experienced batsman of the national team, gave a preliminary idea of how the Tiger batsmen can get runs in this two-match Test series.
Mushfiqur scored 222 runs in 6 innings of 4 Tests at an average of 31.61 in New Zealand. Former national team captain Mushfiqur Rahim, who played a 159-run innings in Wellington in 2016, said it was possible to score a lot of runs if one could settle for a wicket in a Test match in New Zealand. Because the wicket here has a good bounce. The ball comes to the bat nicely. If you want to run, you have to be patient on the wicket.
The Bangladesh team reached New Zealand on December 10 and spent so many days in quarantine. The Tigers got their first practice opportunity on Tuesday. The first Test of New Zealand-Bangladesh will start on January 1 at Mount Manganui. The second Test will be played on January 9 in Christchurch.
