Bangladesh v NZ, 2nd Test, Mirpur October 20, 2013

Bangladesh chase maiden Test win against NZ

43

Match facts

October 21-25, 2013
Start time 0930 local (0330 GMT)

Big picture

Given their reputation and track record preceding this series, the drawn first Test could be seen as a positive result for Bangladesh and a negative one for New Zealand. The two sides, however, seemed satisfied. Bangladesh appeared disappointed at not achieving a result, but chasing a total over 200 on the final day was going to be difficult. New Zealand, on the other hand, felt they got a just outcome.

The second and final Test of the series will offer a fascinating duel, given the desperation from both sides to win it. Bangladesh have a chance to claim their first Test win against New Zealand, and win the series, provided they clear a few barriers.

The home side did well in the first Test without big contributions from Shakib Al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal. In fact, Tamim struggled in the second innings, scoring 40-odd, while Shakib looked desperate to have a fifty under his belt. This hunger for runs among senior players before an important Test is a good sign for Bangladesh.

The performances of Sohag Gazi and Mominul Haque have been encouraging, particularly because both players were not certain picks before the series. Now they will need more performances to affirm the faith shown in them. Anamul Haque, Rubel Hossain and Robiul Islam will also look to come good and build on their records in the past year.

New Zealand have good pace bowlers in the side but their spinners nearly undermined the efforts of the rest of the attack. Left-arm spinner Bruce Martin bowled short and wide, and legspinner Ish Sodhi's honest effort on debut did not seem to threaten the Bangladesh batsmen.

Their batting is stronger. In Brendon McCullum, Ross Taylor and Kane Williamson, New Zealand have the batsmen to change the course of the game, although McCullum is yet to find form. Williamson made 114 and 74 in the Chittagong Test, and looked comfortable grinding down the Bangladesh bowlers, while Taylor showed signs of form during his stays at the crease.

Watch out for

The first Test belonged to Sohag Gazi. He scored a maiden Test century with confidence, and then took six wickets in the second innings, including a hat-trick. The rare nature of his record will follow him from now on every time he comes in to bowl and bat.

Hamish Rutherford's starts in the first Test said much about his ability as an opening batsman. He gave it away in the first innings, while in the second he misread a straight delivery. He is an attractive player off the front foot, but has to last longer than an hour to make big runs on these pitches.

Team news

New Zealand could tweak their bowling attack, leaving out Martin for Neil Wagner or even Mark Gillespie. Corey Anderson did not have the most memorable debut Test - he bowled well but his batting returns were poor. However, it's likely he may keep his place ahead of Dean Brownlie. Barring any last-minute injuries, the rest of the side is likely to remain unchanged.


New Zealand (likely): 1 Peter Fulton, 2 Hamish Rutherford, 3 Kane Williamson, 4 Ross Taylor, 5 Dean Brownlie/Corey Anderson, 6 Brendon McCullum (capt), 7 BJ Watling (wk), 8 Doug Bracewell, 9 Trent Boult, 10 Ish Sodhi, 11 Bruce Martin/Neil Wagner/Mark Gillespie

Bangladesh are unlikely to change the squad that drew only its second Test against New Zealand, unless there are injury concerns. Robiul Islam struggled to bowl long spells in Chittagong, and his fitness remains a worry. Anamul Haque is the only batsman in Bangladesh's top seven not to have made a score, so this match will be important for him.However, there were some murmurs of a third seamer being given a go in place of Abdur Razzak. Mushfiqur Rahim said the team will stick to the seven batsmen-four bowlers composition and the playing XI would only be finalised on the morning of the match.

Bangladesh (likely): 1 Tamim Iqbal, 2 Anamul Haque, 3 Marshall Ayub, 4 Mominul Haque, 5 Mushfiqur Rahim (capt & wk), 6 Shakib Al Hasan, 7 Nasir Hossain, 8 Sohag Gazi, 9 Abdur Razzak, 10 Robiul Islam, 11 Rubel Hossain.

Stats and trivia

  • Sohag Gazi's hat-trick in the first Test was the first by a Bangladeshi spinner since Alok Kapali's achievement in 2003 against Pakistan.
  • The 27 sixes hit during the first Test equaled the record for most sixes hit in a Test match. The other game with 27 sixes was played between India and Pakistan in Faisalabad in 2006.
  • Mominul Haque's 203 runs in the first Test is the second highest aggregate for a Bangladeshi batsman in Tests, behind Mohammad Ashraful's 212 runs.

Pitch and conditions

The Mirpur wicket will be slow, but will offer much to batsmen and spinners. The fast bowlers will struggle, although reverse swing is a possibility given the outfield conditions. There was heavy rain on Sunday morning and forecasts suggest more showers over the next week.

Quotes

"Our target will be to hold on to the consistency that we showed in the last game. My personal goal would be to take five wickets." Bangladesh offspinner Sohag Gazi speaks about the collective and individual plans for the second Test

"We want to win the game rather than just draw it."

    I guess Mahmudullah needs to come in, in exchange of Razzak/Anamul. He is far more better bats man and also handy with the ball. he can add the left arm, right arm off spin combination when Gazi needs to send for some rest.Mushdfiq should utilize both Nasir and Mahmudullah to try out more off spin attack which NZ seems to struggle with.

    @B-Link Yes I remember that you beat us 4-0. It was a terrific result for Bangladesh cricket. But it was in the past. I also remember us beating you in the 7th over of a 50 over game. That was also some time ago. What we have now is two fairly evenly matched teams (in these conditions) each desperate for a win. It should be a great match. Let go of the past, and just enjoy the cricket.

  • SameOld on October 21, 2013, 1:47 GMT

    Wagner in for Martin, straight swap. If Wagner's not 100%, Gillespie. Stick with Sodhi and Anderson. C'mon Kiwis!

  • AusieBangaleeShameem on October 21, 2013, 0:02 GMT

    Stats and Trivia ---- Sohag Gazi is the only player in the test history who scored a hundred and had a hat-trick in the same match. You're a real Royal Bengal tiger mate -- You roar in Dhaka -- I salute you from Sydney. Good luck.

  • NZCricketfan1 on October 20, 2013, 23:31 GMT

    Should be an interesting match. As a kiwi fan I understand why our Bangladeshi friends are hoping for victory. Its hard trying to develop a team and even harder supporting a team that often loses. Good luck to both sides.

    As for my team I think our lack of spin options is a real problem. I think we should have taken Astle but hopefully Sodhi will do better. As for our batting if Taylor fires we should do well with Williamson, Fulton and Watling all showing patience in the last outing. I also think Rutherford is due for a big score. In the unlikely event the pitch offers anything for our quicks I will back us to win. Otherwise should be quite close.

  • reyme on October 20, 2013, 22:51 GMT

    After reading the article I am stunned to find out BD team management is planning to play 3 pacers! Either these people lack common sense or simply gone mad. Pace is not their strength and we saw these pacers sometimes gets belted so hard they don't even survive 3 overs in a row. BD must prepare pure spin track to utilize the home condition and play to WIN. The captain must come out of his ultra defensive minded attitude and attack the batsmen with more close in fielders. He should know this is no ODI or T20 where he need to control runs or runrate. Ideally BD should play only one pacer, Robiul, 3 fulltime spinners like Razzak, Gazi, Enam/Saqlain plus Shakib who is still recovering from serious injury. Hopefully BD coaching staff will realize Spin is their strength, and that's what can earn them 20 wickets. By no means play 3 pacers, use some common sense, if cricket sense is not available! This is the best chance BD got to win a Test against a TOP 8 team, don't ruin it, please!

  • on October 20, 2013, 22:50 GMT

    Hoep the pitch is much better than the slow, low pitch used in the first test.

  • on October 20, 2013, 21:14 GMT

    The problem is we become so much defensive way before this test series. I am really concern while we can come out with a win against big boys in test arena. BD should plan way before a test series and always play for win , best use their strength both in domestic and international matches.

  • on October 20, 2013, 20:34 GMT

    It still amazes me why we don't make a spinning track like the Sri Lankans and Indians often do. Home advantage is a well accepted practice. Why not utilize it by playing to our strengths? I mean the Kiwis, Aussies and Proteas do make our lives pretty difficult with their pitches whenever we are there

  • Fogu on October 20, 2013, 17:09 GMT

    I hope BD replaces Rubel. Hopefully the pitch will assist the spinners more. That is our strength and we should prepare accordingly. I would prefer to give Anamul more time to adjust. He is very young and needs to work on his technique. Hoping for a good contest played with good sportsmanship. Good luck to both teams. Go Tigers!

  • on October 20, 2013, 16:43 GMT

    Neil Wagner needs to play!!!!

  • asiacricket1234 on October 20, 2013, 16:21 GMT

    Bangladesh needs bowler who can take 20 wickets. Rubel shouldn't be in the team. Al Amin or Nazmul should get chance

  • on October 20, 2013, 15:35 GMT

    good news something good for bangladesh cricket!

  • on October 20, 2013, 14:49 GMT

    Out anamul & rubel in mahamudullah & naeem pich must be spin no flat

  • on October 20, 2013, 13:24 GMT

    like others i have two changes in the squad like anamul and rubel who will be replaced by nayeem and al amin

  • Captainman on October 20, 2013, 13:15 GMT

    Some ppl are funny by saying drop Robiul. Robiul averages 33 with the ball and can at least bat a bit. Whereas with Rubel averages a pathetic 75 with the ball and can't hold a bat. I agree with Anamul as he has minimal footwork and should focus for ODIs for now.

  • on October 20, 2013, 13:13 GMT

    I just hope, Bangladeshi players don't get overconfident. It takes a lot to win a test match. So I will suggest our players not to take the kiwis lightly just because, the pitch is assumed to be spin friendly. They are a strong side and they are not going to make this any easy for us. So lets work hard, give our best and wish good luck to be with us.

  • Symon71 on October 20, 2013, 12:24 GMT

    Bangladesh should keep Anamul out from any test match as he lacks the basic footwork! Robiul should also go out as he looked unfit giving a chance to Mahmudullah. Naim should come in though we would lack opener but hey u have to understand that no opener is performing constantly for us. We tried different middle order batsmen as opener and so lets give a try with Naim.... every other ones are looking perfect so far! inshallah we will win this test match!!!! come on tigers!

  • on October 20, 2013, 12:14 GMT

    The pitch should be a turner as spin is our strength!!! The team should have at least 2 changes, get Al-Amin in for Rubel and Naeem for Anamul!!Good luck TIGERS!!!

  • The_Ashes on October 20, 2013, 12:01 GMT

    I strongly suggest to BCB is to arrange more Cricket matches for the team. Even if Bangladesh beats New Zealand in these series its still not good enough to climb up the ranking table. I mean after this, New Zealand have immediate series with West Indies and India. What has Bangladesh got? no wonder we're ranked in the bottom. Anyway hopefully this final test match will assist bowlers and good luck to both teams!

  • on October 20, 2013, 11:40 GMT

    pls no more rubel.We dont need him in our team.He does not even deserve a place in the team.pls sack him.no shahadat and no rubel.Bring shofiul islam back or pick some new bowlers.

  • on October 20, 2013, 11:05 GMT

    Neil Wagner or Mark Gillespie to replace Martin would be my only change. Considering we have India and the West Indies coming this summer I would play Sodhi and Anderson again to give them more experience. Time for McCullum to step up with the bat and deliver for once, we can't have a captain not having a playing role, especially with Jessie Ryder set to return for the summer.

  • AKM_Saifullah on October 20, 2013, 10:44 GMT

    In case, Mushy does not have trust on his quickies, Mahmudullah can be picked instead of Robiul or Rubel. He should bat at No 8 then.

  • FirojAlam on October 20, 2013, 10:05 GMT

    I dont think selectors will go for any change in the team. Bowlers will do better in Dhaka. Thoough Rubel is a weak point in this teast, BD has no better option, either. The Luner Phase indicates the less possibility of rain during this test. It is diificult to assume who will win the test. Both the team is equally strong. However, the known condition and luck will favour the BD, I think. Cheers for the tigers !!!

  • bdsmaruf on October 20, 2013, 9:46 GMT

    If robiul no fit then alamin should replace him. if he fit then alamin replace robel, others are likely from 1st test. its my opinion.

  • on October 20, 2013, 9:34 GMT

    after the chittagong test, i would say Bangladesh is favorite in Mirpur stadium considering the fatc that they have far better spinners than kiwis. the slow turning wicket of Mirpur will definitely test kiwis. if the tigers can play up to their potential, i can sense a significant series victory for the tigers....

  • Energetic. on October 20, 2013, 9:20 GMT

    Don't forget the New Zealand team is much older and have far more experience than Bangladesh but still lost 4-0 and drawn against Bangladesh thus far.

  • Captainman on October 20, 2013, 9:12 GMT

    Bangladesh needs more International Cricket. My XI - Tamim, Anamul, Marshall, Mominul, Rahim, Shakib, Nasir, Mahmudullah, Gazi, Robiul and Al-Amin. Mahmudullah does really really well at number 7 and is underrated as a bowler. His record is much better than Abdur Razzak in tests plus we could use his batting services and good fielding skills something Razzak lacks. When the wicket is turning, he's just as dangerous in ripping the ball. Still do not understand why Rubel Hossain is in the team given his terrible record.

  • SyedAreYouDumb on October 20, 2013, 9:09 GMT

    Why is everyone saying that the 1st test was poor because of pitch? Fair enough the batting was easy on it but it was a new square, both teams nearly capitulated for sub 400 scores (lower order bailed them out) and rubel hossain no ball changed the game. Anyway, look forward to the 2nd test but worried about rain; hopefully we get a result. For once Bangladesh look favourites against a top8 team and this will continue for the rest of the series.

  • on October 20, 2013, 8:56 GMT

    The pitch was not made for draw the match.All sub-continent pitches act like this. Sohag Gazi made a hat-trick and thats the fact.all u need quality bowling.and bangladesh played very positive cricket through out the five days and they were far better then newzeland and the last hour battinf from sakib was very encouraging .. Best of luck for the bangladesh !!! Hope there will be a good game in Mirpur..and last time Tino Best showed u can gain lots of wicket from mirpur pitch if u have a right plan

  • jb633 on October 20, 2013, 8:55 GMT

    The pitches BD produce for cricket are a travesty to the game and produce the most boring cricket. I expect another lifeless draw here. BD should replicate the pitches India produce for test cricket, bunsen's always add great interest to the game.

  • Warm_Coffee on October 20, 2013, 8:50 GMT

    The toss will be important but don't be surprised if Bangladesh loses the toss again. They lost already this year both the tosses to Sri Lanka and the first test match against New Zealand.

  • provatnazmi on October 20, 2013, 8:47 GMT

    Bangladesh cricket team is now an emerging threat in today's cricket world. They have some world class performers and dedicated match winners. Though most of the players are very young having less international cricket experience, however, they are very capable to learn the grammar of cricket. Some of them have already proved their cricket ability in national & transnational cricket arena. Particularly in ODI cricket, Bangladesh cricket team has an alarming squad and they can change the game at any time without prediction. Best wishes for BD tiger !!

  • on October 20, 2013, 8:44 GMT

    I think Bangladesh team need to remain unchanged like first test squad. If Mirpur pitch will slow and turning I hope the match result may be favorable with Bangladesh as they played previous test matches since last two years. only two players Anamul Haque and Robiul Islam could not played expectedly out of 11, I think they will play good at Mirpur.

  • on October 20, 2013, 8:38 GMT

    i just hope BD wont give us a shock...as already we are flying high and dreaming to win or atleast draw the series.....!!

  • TheRisingTeam on October 20, 2013, 8:38 GMT

    I don't understand the point of selecting Rubel Hossain. He has the worst pace bowling test record of all the teams averaging a ridiculous 75 with the ball and strike rate 115. No wonder our pace bowlers cannot get wickets. I'll try Al-Amin and see how he does for Rubel Hossain who shouldn't be in Bangladesh's test plans considering how poor he is in that form. Even Sharma averages more than half better than Rubel. So I don't understand the logic of the BD management.

  • fah4 on October 20, 2013, 8:29 GMT

    Bangladesh can draw this match if their batsman shows the form they showed in 1st test important for them to get a good start and then build on it. Mominul Haque is very good batsman he played well in all the chances he got.Bangladesh should stick on with their batting line up for few matches for them to settle. For New Zealand Kane willimson bowled better then Bruice martin their lead spinner.

  • Jordanious77 on October 20, 2013, 7:53 GMT

    Hopefully the pitch actually helps bowlers in this test. I'd hate to see another flat pitch. I understand the logic of creating pitches that help the home team, but just playing for a draw before the match even starts isn't helping anyone. The only thing it does is attempt to trick people into thinking you are better than you actually are.

    Hopefully it's more competitive, even if that means a spinners paradise.

    Bangladesh must win this test match to show the world they are good enough at the test level. Bangladesh must concentrate on their strength and target the weakness of NZ. Could take some courage from the Pak V Saf match, look away from Aus V Ind match. Bangladesh must target to play 5 Days in order to beat Newzeland dont take Nz lightly go hard on them on every ball you play.

  • kiwicricketnut on October 20, 2013, 7:36 GMT

    Anderson has to play, one test is no measure of a player, one series is not a measure of a player! We need an allrounder, he has the skills, give him a decent crack at it, his bowling was tight and he chiped in with cheap wickets, he failed with the bat but everyone knows what he can do with the bat, i can forgive a guy getting out cheaply on debut, if anderson and sohdi don't play in this test it would be a gutless display by whoever is picking the team. Looks like another draw will be on the cards with the forecast not helping things, if it is a draw it wont be andersons or sohdi's fault, senior guys need to step up.
