After losing the first ODI against New Zealand, Bangladesh is all set to bounce back as they play the second One Day International at the Hagley Oval on December 29, 2016. The match start time is 3:30 IST.

The latest New Zealand score after Bangladesh won the toss and elected to bowl first was 171/6. Mortaza and Taskin Ahmed took two wickets each.

Bangladesh, under the leadership of Mashrafe Mortaza, will be trying hard to level the series, so that they can take the competition further to the third and final game.

Even though Bangladesh lost the first game by a wide margin, they showed that extra fighting spirit against the Kiwis.

Chasing a mammoth total, they fell short of 77 runs; but it should be noted that they had a plenty 31 balls remaining. For the visitors, Shakib Al Hasan led the chase from the front, but the lack of good companions spoiled the show.

On the other hand, New Zealand showed good team coordination throughout the game in all the departments. Tom Latham and Colin Munro batted well for the hosts, and Kame Williamson expects the same to happen in the upcoming game too.

On the bowling side, Kiwis has nothing much to worry, as Tim Southee and James Neeshaam are in complete rhythm. The pitch in Hagley Oval is expected to be swing friendly, and it will surely give an upper hand for the Kiwis.
