New Zealand would kick start international cricket in 2022 with a two-match Test series against Bangladesh, the first of which begins on January 1 at the Bay Oval. The match would begin at 3:30 am IST (Indian Standard Time). After a disappointing time in India where they lost the Test series 1-0, New Zealand would be hoping that they get their first win in the World Test Championship when they take on Bangladesh. Both sides would be without key players for this contest with New Zealand missing regular skipper Kane Williamson owing to injury and the visitors being without the likes of Shakib Al Hasan, who has opted out due to family commitments. Ajaz Patel Dropped From New Zealand’s Squad for Test Series Against Bangladesh, Tom Latham To Lead in Absence of Injured Kane Williamson

Bangladesh would be low on confidence following a dismal performance in Test series at home against Pakistan, which they lost 2-0. In the absence of Shakib and Mahmudullah (who retired from Test cricket), Bangladesh would have their task cut out against the World Test Champions.
