New Zealand vs Bangladesh: Schedule of Test and ODI series

Bangladesh has already started their New Zealand tour with the warm up match against Northern Districts. It is to say that Bangladesh got a bad start in New Zealand as they have lost two out of their warm up matches. Another warm up match was abandoned due to rain. So, it was not a satisfactory start for Bangladesh ahead of the ODI and test series. However, the good news is that Bangladesh has got an inspirational win over New Zealand Cricket XI today. So, I think, it will help Bangladesh to bounce back and perform well against mighty New Zealand.

Bangladesh will play three ODI and two test matches against New Zealand. So, Bangladesh has some more opportunities to prove their worth though they have to face strong challenge from New Zealand. New Zealand team is now going through a tough time. They suffered some humiliating defeats in their recent two tours in South African and Australia. New Zealand has recently lost the Chappell-Hadlee series to Australia. Naturally, New Zealand will try their best to get their form back through the upcoming series against Bangladesh. New Zealand cricketers are eager to boost up their confidence level after two disappointing series.

Bangladesh was out of International cricket since Twenty20 world cup in September. Most of the players took part in the National League. So, in that senses they were not out of cricket and this is the time they need to show that the long gap did not affect their game. Here, I am giving the full schedule of New Zealand vs Bangladesh ODI and Test series:



Competing Teams


1st ODI



New Zealand vs Bangladesh

Eden Park, Auckland

2nd ODI



New Zealand vs Bangladesh

McLean Park, Napier

3rd ODI



New Zealand vs Bangladesh

Queenstown Events Centre

1st Test



New Zealand vs Bangladesh

University Oval, Dunedin

2nd Test



New Zealand vs Bangladesh

Basin Reserve, Wellington

Bangladesh’s last tour in New Zealand was very disappointing. So, they must try their best to pay some back to the New Zealand side. To be honest, Bangladesh is not a new member of test cricket anymore. Their performance in the last world cup showed that they have some natural talents and they can outperform any cricket powers in their days. The problem is that those days come rarely for Bangladesh team. So, I think, Bangladesh should perform continuously from now on and I am hopeful that Bangladesh will have a good series against New Zealand this time around.
