The live cricket streaming of the first Test between Bangladesh and New Zealand will be available on Sky Go. After comprehensive victories in One-Day International (ODIs) and T20 Internationals (T20Is), hosts New Zealand would aim to clinch the two-Test series against Bangladesh. Bangladesh are yet to register a victory on this tour, as they have been whitewashed both in ODIs and T20Is by the Kiwis. The hosts, on the other hand, will expect to carry on with the winning momentum which they gained in the home series against Pakistan and carried it into Bangladesh series. Also with the fact that Basin Reserve in Wellington will offer a lot of help to the pacers, this match may be evenly contested as both sides have a well-equipped pace attack.

Bangladesh are yet to win a single match since the time they have stepped in New Zealand. The visitors were outplayed and they never looked competitive against Kane Williamson and his team. But despite this, Bangladesh should have their confidence high given the fact that just in their previous match, they defeated England. Bangladesh had drawn the series coming from 0-1 against England a few months back to dish out an example of their capacity to upset even the strongest of the opposition.

Irrespective of this, the Kiwi squad has not given any opportunity to Bangladesh to capitalise on.. To add to the Bangladesh squad woes, Ross Taylor and Trent Boult are back in the Tests squad. Taskin Ahmed who is likely to make his Test debut will hold the key to the Bangladesh pace attack and while Mehedi Hasan will have to do the same with his spin.
