Ish Sodhi, a New Zealand leg-spinner, stated that the visitors will strive to duplicate Bangladesh’s performance in the first Test in Sylhet. In the second and final match of the two-Test series, which begins on December 6 in Dhaka.
“The way Bangladesh played, they certainly outplayed us.” But, on reflection, I believe they provided us with a model for what works in these conditions, which we intend to apply to the upcoming Test match,” Sodhi said in Dhaka on Monday.
Bangladesh defeated New Zealand by 150 runs in the first Test at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium, their first victory over the Kiwis at home.
Sodhi stated that the loss affected his team, but they are keen to level the series in the second match, which will be played at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka.
“Obviously, it was difficult to lose that first game in Sylhet, but I think as the test progressed, we found a bit more rhythm.”
“We’ve got to try to find all the learnings that we had in that last game and apply them to this one, and hopefully we can come out on the winning side.”
