Bangladesh Cricket Team is preparing for their series against New Zealand. After their test rankings falling below Zimbabwe, the team wants to jump back in Test rankings by defeating the Kiwis.

Shakib Al Hasan believes they have a strong spin force. He wants to use the spin bowlers to destroy the Kiwis’ batting line up. Shakib said, “If you compare both of our spin bowlers, we are in a better position. So in that way, we need to take advantage from it.”

Meanwhile, Nasir Hossain wants to keep in mind about the extraordinary series they had against New Zealand in 2010. He said the team’s main aim will definitely be to win the series. He added, “This is cricket, so you don’t know what will happen next. However, we will give our best performances and try to win the series.”

New Zealand vs Bangladesh tour will begin with the first Test in Chittagong starting on 9th of October. The second Test and the next two ODIs are going to be at the Sher-e-Bangla Cricket Stadium in Mirpur. The third ODI will be played at Naraynganj at Khan Saheb Stadium in Fotullah and final ODI is slated to be at Sylhet stadium pending ICC approval.
