Bangladesh is going to New Zealand for the second time this year to play two matches of the Test Championship matches. In February-March early this year, Bangladesh went to New Zealand to play limited overs series as they’ve played three ODIs and T20Is. This time the two teams will play only two Tests.

Tigers will have to stay in quarantine for only 7-10 days this time even though they were in quarantine for 14 days in last tour. After a few days in quarantine center, they can practice and return to team hotel after the corona test negative result from the quarantine center.

“The rules we had in our last New Zealand series have been relaxed a bit. Rooms quarantined will be for three to four days. As a result, we have some additional facilities,” said BCB CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury Thursday.

"Our team is getting a chance to play two practice matches. There will be two two-day practice matches. One within themselves, the other with the New Zealand XI. After playing two practice matches, Bangladesh team will play Test directly” he added.

From 2001 to 2021, Bangladesh have played 32 matches in three formats in New Zealand but could not win any matches.

Bangladesh will play two Tests in early January in Mount Maunganui (1-5) and Christchurch (9-13) respectively.
