New Zealand suffered their first-ever Test defeat at the hands of Bangladesh in the first Test of the ongoing Test series at Bay Oval Ground. They lacked application with both bat and the ball and thus lost the first Test by 8 wickets. New Zealand are certainly missing the presence of Kane Williamson in the team.
He, unfortunately, won’t be available for the second Test as well. Nevertheless, Tom Latham and Boys would be keen to bounce back strongly in the next Test match. It will be interesting to see what changes they make going into the second Test. We have compiled our predicted playing XI of the New Zealand Cricket Team for the second Test. Here’s a look at it.
NZ vs BAN: New Zealand’s Predicted Playing XI vs Bangladesh, New Zealand vs Bangladesh 2022, 2nd Test
Openers: Tom Latham and Will Young
Tom Latham couldn’t replicate the form which he showed recently in India in the first Test against Bangladesh. He got out on just 1 run off 14 balls in the first innings and managed 14 runs off 30 balls in the second innings of the Test match.
Will Young, however, showed great form in the Test match. He was outstanding in both the innings of the Test match. Young scored 52 runs off 135 balls in the first innings and followed it up with another vital 69-run knock off 172 balls.
