Place and Time: McLean Park in Napier; February 13, 7AM (BST)


Bangladesh have already got a blow as Shakib Al Hasan has been ruled out due to injury. Shakib is one of the highest scorers for Tigers in New Zealand.

New Zealand

The opener Colin Munro has been sacked and replaced by Henry Nicholls who will open with Martin Guptill. But Kiwis skipper Kane Williamson and the veteran Ross Taylor are looking in good touch.
