Blackcaps eye a series win

New Zealand finally had a satisfying performance after the 4-1 loss against India earlier this summer. The win against Bangladesh might have given Williamson and co. a lot of confidence. One of the key factors of the win was Martin Guptill coming back into form. The hosts are unlikely to tinker with the winning combination. The Blackcaps were good in all the aspects of the game in Napier and they would hope to continue that form as another win in Christchurch will assure them a series win.

Bangladesh's bid to stay alive in the series

The scorecard of Napier might suggest that Bangladesh were poor, but the truth is New Zealand never let them into the game. Mashrafe Mortaza's side will have another chance to prove their worth on away soil as they look down at another series loss overseas. Looking at the reserves, it's unlikely Bangladesh will make any changes, having played their full-strength side in the previous game.

The Hagley Oval pitch has seen a few high-scoring games over the years.

According to the Cricbuzz report, the general notion of a captain is to bat first on this track, put on a huge score on the board and then defend it. Such has been the trend at this venue. Whoever gets to bat first on this wicket will have to stay clear of the swinging new ball and score as many as possible. The weather is expected to be bright and sunny with no chances of rain.
