CRICDOT DESK : The Tigers are dreaming of winning the series where Bangladesh could not win a single match on New Zealand soil before the Bay Oval Test.

The Christchurch Test on Sunday is therefore a chance to win history for Bangladesh. The Tigers will get two elusive tastes if they can avoid losing in this Test.

Naturally, Bangladesh will enter the field with a pace-dependent XI on the green grass wicket of Christchurch. There will be a specialist spinner in this match too.

But at least one change is definitely coming in the XI. Young opener Mahmudul Hasan Joy could not play the second innings of the last Test due to injury. He dropped out of the series. Naeem Sheikh could make his Test debut in his place.

On the other hand, this is Ross Taylor’s last match for New Zealand. Rachin Rabindra could lose his place in the XI in this important match for the Kiwis. Daryl Mitchell can be seen in his place.

The ICC Test Championship will start at 4 am Bangladesh time on Sunday.

Possible XI of the two teams at a glance

Bangladesh team: Sadman Islam, Naeem Sheikh, Nazmul Hossain Shant, Muminul Haque (captain), Mushfiqur Rahim, Liton Das (wicket keeper), Yasir Ali Chowdhury Rabbi, Mehedi Hasan Miraj, Taskin Ahmed, Shariful Islam, Ebadat Hossain Chowdhury.

New Zealand squad: Tom Latham (captain), Will Young, Devon Conway, Ross Taylor, Henry Nichols, Daryl Mitchell, Tom Blandell (wicket keeper), Kyle Jamieson, Tim Southee, Neil Wagner, Trent Bolt.
