In the second ODI against New Zealand, Bangladesh lost by 28 runs (D/L method) and also lost the three-match T20I series. Despite losing this match, the Tigers got off to a great start. Apart from Soumya Sarkar and Naeem Sheikh, no other batsman has been able to take the wheel of the team.

Bangladesh head coach Russell Domingo also thinks that Bangladesh has the ability to do well even in difficult situations like New Zealand. But the victories are getting out of their hands as they cannot be consistent.

After the DLS drama, Bangladesh had the target of 170 in 16 overs. Liton Das got out when the score was 13 runs. Then Soumya and Naeem made 81-runs partnership and giving Bangladesh hope to win in New Zealand for the first time. But after the partnership broke all other wickets were crumbling down.

“New Zealand is a tough place to play. Our record here is not great but here is a glimpse of what we can do. Although we lack consistency. Because if you have five bad overs, New Zealand will hold you back and you will have to pay for it” said Domingo.

“Look, we had 100 runs in the first 10 overs. I thought we've got a great start. I am so happy to see their aggression and the way they started. Significant improvement from the previous game. Although we didn't do well in the end. But today we have a lot of positive things to accept in this match” he added.
