There will be no Kane Williamson, or Kyle Jamieson or Trent Boult. The series will likewise not be essential for the ODI Super League as Pakistan Cricket Board couldn’t get the administrations of the firm giving Decision Review System arrangement. This load of variables do take some sheen off the worth the series holds.
New Zealand, nonetheless, will be eased to be out of Bangladesh. They finished with a 2-3 scoreline in the T20I series however on occasion took a gander adrift against the Bangladesh spinners.
