Watch BD v NZ 1st test day 1 complete highlights today 1-12-2017, from Basin Reserve, Wellington (New Zealand) Thursday 12th January 2017. From 2001 to 2014 these two teams played six test matches series, Three times in New Zealand and three times in Bangladesh. Five series New Zealand won out of six times and last series in 2013/14 had been drawn in Bangladesh. Actually Bangladesh have not won any test match against New Zealand from their test history so far. Total eleven matches had been played between these two team and Eight matches had been won by New Zealand and three had been drawn.
New Zealand last test series was against Pakistan, it was two test matches and both of them won by New Zealand it means New team is very strong at home ground in test format. Bangladesh team position is now similar to “underdogs” situation. After a very bad record against New Zealand, Bangladesh should be very desperate to get even one victory to change the past black history and they will try their best definitely.

Match Timings: 11:00 local time (22:00 GMT)
Toss: New Zealand won the toss and elected to field.
The green track could result in prodigious seam movement. The weather forecast predicts rain on the first and the fourth day with high winds swirling around the ground. Bangladesh will make at least one change to their XI with Shuvagata Hom out of the Test squad. Taskin Ahmed is expected to debut, while Mehedi Hasan could be picked ahead of Taijul Islam to make room for Rubel Hossain.
Subashis Roy has also made a case for himself and could be picked ahead of Kamrul Islam Rabbi. There could only be one change in the New Zealand line-up with a fit Trent Boult replacing Matt Henry. Given their settled batting line-up, it seems Dean Brownlie would have to wait for his turn.
