As expected the pitch at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka will be slow and thus will be spinner friendly. Batsmen will continue to struggle against spinners on this pitch. The ball will not turn a lot but will come slow on the bat.
An unbeaten 66-run stand between Henry Nicholls (36*) and Tom Blundell (30*) has taken New Zealand to 128/5.
