Visitors Bangladesh get set to take on hosts New Zealand on Day 1 of thee second and final Test at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch on Friday. The live cricket streaming of the match is available on Sky Go, while the live telecats of the match will be available on Sky Sport NZ. As for now, New Zealand are on the driver’s seat, following a convincing win in the opening Test, as they look to take forward the winning momentum in this tie as well, while they also look forward to inflict a seris whitewash over the Bangladeshis. However, Bangladesh of late have become one of those sides, who never back down from a fight, and tough contest is predicted.

For Bangladesh, it has turned out to be a tough tour to New Zealand so far. They were blanked in the ODIs as well as T20Is. The results, though not going their way, did not actually show their competitiveness. Their players were good in patches but faltered when it came to going for the kill. Even in the first Test, Bangladesh posted 595 for 8, their second highest total in Tests. In spite of it, they ended on the losing side, thus creating a record for posting highest total in a losing cause in Tests. And now, as if the spate of losses was not enough, Bangladesh suffer from injuries to key players ahead of the second Test at Christchurch.
