- New Zealand team announces Test series against Bangladesh
- Kiwis chase spinner Ajaz Patel
- Ajaz took 14 wickets in the recent Wankhede Test
- Test series starts from January 1
Captain Kane Williamson has been ruled out of the series with Bangladesh due to an elbow injury. He will be replaced by Tom Latham. The cricket board has said that the need for a specialist spinner on New Zealand’s pitches will not be large. The board also clarified that only those who fit into the team will be included in the team as they do not work with records. New Zealand have announced a 13-man squad for the event.
New Zealand Test squad: Tom Latham (captain), Tom Blundell (wicket-keeper), Trent Boult, Devan Conway, Matt Henry, Kyle Jamieshan, Darley Mitchell, Henry Nichols, Rachin Ravindra, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor, Neil Wagner, Will.
